Come and stay for a day or a few months - there are plenty of destinations within an hour radius of your home away from home!
Come unwind at the Okefenokee Cottage and discover southeast Georgia your own way. Just three blocks from Whistlin' Dixie on Main Street and the popular Folkston Funnel Train Watching Platform, it's a great place to connect with our small town atmosphere. Stroll the streets to view historical buildings and landmarks of the town. Meet up with other enthusiastic train watchers from all over the world to watch numerous trains pass by the funnel platform.
Canoeing opportunities abound with the St Marys River accessible at many landings in the area and the world-renowned Okefenokee Swamp only seven miles from the front door. The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge offers hiking trails, a visitor center for interpretation of the natural wonders of the swamp, canoe and boat rentals, and swamp tours. Charlton County also offers lightly-traveled and dirt roads for many miles of biking adventures.
Make Okefenokee Cottage your base as you explore further to the coast. Historic St Marys and the coastal islands of Cumberland, Jekyll, and St Simons are easily accessible from Folkston, making them excellent day trips from the cottage.
