A Life Well-Lived In Small Town Coastal Georgia
Nestled along the pristine coast of Georgia, minutes away from the historic town of St. Marys, Osprey Cove is unspoiled and uncrowded. A club community with water and recreation steps away from your front door, yet only minutes from the famed small town.
St. Marys is the coastal gateway to Cumberland Island, one of the most spectacular natural habitats on the East Coast. Named Best Small Town on the Georgia Coast as well as one of the 50 safest cities in Georgia, downtown St. Marys is dotted with restaurants, B&Bs and antique shops, and the large waterfront park is site of many festivals and gatherings for attendees of all ages.
St. Marys Community Market
Local residents and visitors alike come together to share locally grown produce, handmade crafts, baked goods, and much more every Saturday. For a complete list of vendors, visit St. Mary’s Convention & Visitors Bureau. (link to http://www.visitstmarys.com/).
Only accessible by boat, Cumberland Island National Seashore is Georgia’s largest barrier island. Osprey Cove residents regularly enjoy its 36,000 acres of designated wilderness area, undeveloped beaches, historic sites, cultural ruins, critical habitat and nesting areas, as well as numerous plant and animal communities.
St. Marys Submarine Museum
Organized in March of 1996, the museum is a great place to learn about the Silent Service. A wide variety of submarine artifacts, memorabilia and information are available for viewing, and you can check out the beautiful St. Marys waterfront through a real periscope.
St. Marys Waterfront Park
In the late 1800s, tall ships crowded the harbor as St. Marys was the southernmost point of the United States and a prime trading port for the Americas. Today, the beautiful St. Marys waterfront park lines the river’s shore and is a great place to spend some time outdoors. Located at the park are public boat launch and docks, a riverfront walkway, a playground, and an amphitheater for special events and live entertainment.
Harrietts Bluff Organic Blueberry Farm
Georgia blueberry season runs from April through July. Each season brings an opportunity to visit Morning Belle Farms and celebrate the beginning of summer. You’ll enjoy the thrill of the hunt, a picture-perfect setting, and simple pleasures long forgotten.
