Location + Surroundings
This glamping property is located on Little Raccoon Key, which is a small reef island off the coast of Georgia—a mere 10 minutes from the well-known Jekyll Island. The Golden Isles, of which these islands form a part of, is a popular vacation destination in the southern U.S., and they are located exactly halfway between Savannah, Georgia, and Jacksonville, Florida. The island of Little Raccoon Key has a rich historical backgruond—from the Timucua and Guale natives and French, Spanish, and English explorations to the present-day ecotourism and conservation practices.
