TOP 7 REASONS why the RIVER PLANTATION PLACE (RPP) is your perfect getaway:

1. Because the RPP fronts the South Newport River, giving you access to St. Catherines Island, Sapelo Sound, & the Atlantic...your gateway to the Georgia Barrier Islands!
2. You're surrounded by beautiful locale: John James Audubon painted Savannah Sparrows & a Snowy Egret; plus...John Muir documented the 'Hollywood South''s unique seascape
3. Tons of attractions in nearby Savannah & Golden Isles. Forrest 'Bubba' Gump Shrimp Boats swarm in nearby Scottish Darien (featured in the 1989 award-winning film 'Glory')
4. You can bike the 'Coastal Rail Trail', crossing 43 picturesque rivers & creeks dotted by historical markers
5. Shellman Bluff (old oystering community) is Home of the Sapelo Saltwater Fishing Club & 'Speed's Kitchen'---where people take their time...& the fried fish & crab-stuffed flounder are out of this world!
6. Just a stone's throw from the 'Smallest Church in America' is the turnoff east to Harris Neck Nat'l Wildlife Refuge---one of the single best sites in the South for birdwatching
7. The RPP founded 'Adopt JILL' (Jintotolo Island Lighthouse Locale). One percent of income is donated towards the preservation of the lighthouse & coral reefs. Although the RPP is 'environment-friendly', its main purpose is to create a fun atmosphere for everyone!

-Enjoy the 'River Plantation Place'...with the South Newport River at your back door!

Just half an hour south of Savannah, the RPP nestles on 'Yellow Bluff Plantation' named after the Yellow Pines or Longleaf Pines which once blanketed the region. Legend has it---that the yellow pine supplied timber for 'Old Ironsides'. The property lies in the middle of a shrimp-shaped island, giving you a dazzling panoramic view of the sunset!

'The Smallest Church in America', with stained glass windows imported from England, is a landmark at the entrance into the Yellow Bluff. Just 16 mi. east off Sapelo Island is Gray's Reef with excellent fishing & colorful tropical sea life.---From the porch or dock, view the sun as it bounces off the tidal marsh after fishing, kayaking, beachcombing, birdwatching, biking, or golfing. Cook Ms. Chris' lowcountry boil...& don't miss the utterly unique Gullah culture which gives the area a Caribbean flair! Enjoy a campfire & view the stars on a dark night with friends & family. After a restorative sleep, you will feel engaged & inspired!

Jacksonville Airport (JAX) is an alternate major airport.  Landmarks include the 'Golden Isles' immortalized by Sidney Lanier's poem 'Marshes of Glynn' & the bioreserve Altamaha River.  As you arrive, the colonial coastal feel of the home will wrap around you & WELCOME you with a kiss of salt air!
