Wallow (The) | Darien, Georgia
Owned by Cornelia and Julius Bailey and built by the Bailey family, The Wallow is a guest house located in Historic Hog Hammock on Sapelo Island, one of Georgia's barrier islands.
The 6-bedroom, 5-bath lodge is convenient to all of Sapelo Island's natural beauty. Amenities include a shady porch for rocking, a rowboat for exploring the creek, biking, fishing, crabbing, beachcombing, hiking, birding, and "anything else you would enjoy on this peaceful island off the Georgia Coast." There is a kitchen where you can do your own cooking or meals can be pre-arranged with the Baileys.
Sapelo Island's Hog Hammock Community is owned by descendants of slaves, dating back to the late 1800's. Cornelia Bailey belongs to the last generation of islanders to be born, raised and schooled on Sapelo Island.
Called the Sage of Sapelo, Cornelia Bailey says "When you come to Sapelo you see birds and bees, flowers and trees and me, and that's the way God intend it to be!"
The Bailey family also offers wagon and bus tours of the island, Comyams Campground for tent camping, and bike rentals.
