Little St. Simons Island Lodge - The Most Secluded Lodge In The USLittle St. Simons  
Island Lodge

With so many resorts claiming to be surrounded by pristine nature while, in reality, they are within walking distance of a Starbucks, it's hard to find a real nature getaway.

But this place in Georgia's Golden Isles is different. It's the least developed island of them all, covering an area of 11,000 acres (45 km2) and boasting 7 miles (11 km) of beaches - all without a single building, bar, or even a parasol.

The ancient landscape in the Altamaha River delta is one of Georgia's most protected natural habitats where a limited amount of people can come to rest and explore.

The island is only accessible by boat, and you must make prior arrangements to get access. So, it's safe to say you will be in an exclusive club if you make it to Little St. Simons Island.
