Located within the resort community of Sea Island, Georgia, this landmark was once home to American playwright Eugene O'Neill and his wife, Carlotta. O'Neill was the first American to introduce realism, which was associated with Anton Chekhov, into dramatic tragedy. He was also one of the first playwrights to incorporate speeches using the American vernacular. O'Neill won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama three times in his lifetime, for Beyond the Horizon (1920), Anna Christie (1922), and Strange Interlude (1928). He also won a posthumous Pulitzer in 1957 for Long Days Journey Into Night.
The cottage is a private residence that is available for vacation rentals and special events through the Sea Island Company. It features antiquarian collectibles and accommodates twelve people for overnight stays based on a double occupancy of six bedrooms and five full baths. Reservations can be made via phone or through the Sea Island Company website.
