Fort Screven Beach Cottage is next door to Lighthouse Cottage. Both are in the shadow of the Tybee Island Lighthouse, which is just 1.5 blocks away. The beach also is just 1.5 blocks away. In the heart of the former Fort Screven, this cottage was built in 1920 by the US Army to house non-commissioned officers.
Just a block away is Battery Garland and the Fort Screven museum. This is the islands quiet, secluded north end preferred by celebrities. The army built the houses facing each other with a sidewalk between — no street, just a sidewalk. The streets run behind the houses. The front of Ft Screven Cottage faces a sidewalk; the back is on a traffic-free street.
Some of the interior walls are the original 5-inch wide tongue and groove planks laid horizontally. With 5 bedrooms and a large sectional sofa in the living room, this home can sleep up to 12 people inside the house — plus 2 more outside in the cabana bedroom, which is beside the hot tub.
