    Since 1928 this complex has been the mecca for the discerning/more wealthy gentry. Room rates run $500-1,500 a nite, but they are large. It was the design of Addison Mitzner, who themed it after a Spanish design.

    The island has been a haven for the "upper echelon" for 80 years. The beginning was with construction of the Cloister hotel, a landmark in the south. The elegance is hard to beat. Eventually lots were sold and homes built. It still is not overbuilt, and the control factors dictate how and how much a home can be constructed. There is nothing small end for those homes, and only around 350 are on on the island.
    The Cloister and the Lodge are two places to stay-Rates will range $500-1,000 a nite. The rooms generally are 700-1,200 SF.

    The marsh in this area is as astounding as the open area, and it is highlighted as a must have feature for many. It is a great attraction and spectacular views. Usually the pool in the rear is connected to the marsh area, and abuts against the home property line. There really are wildlife in the marsh and gators as well as snakes.

    The island is close to Brunswick Georgia and next to St. Simons Island. The area is filled with golf courses, water sports and deep sea fishing as a side light venture. Fort Federcia on St. Simons is a nice side venture and also the old homes along the main road are long in history, for our country gentry.
