This delightful B &B exceeded our expectations. Very comfortable with lovely outside deck and sitting room. Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Appreciated complimentary snacks and drinks. Well done. Gail and Eric from U.K
Everything you would want in a bed and breakfast. Charm, comfort, courteous and helpful staff, beautiful rooms and, of course, a great breakfast. Great, peaceful location. We parked our car Friday afternoon upon arrival and didn't get back in until Sunday afternoon. Boat to Cumberland Island, all restaurants and shops within a 10-minute walk. Historic cemetery five minute walk. You can have as much or as little interaction with other guests as you want. Even enjoyed a cigar on the outside porch. Not sure when we'll be back to St. Mary's, but wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!
My wife and I stayed at the Spencer House Inn during our visit to Cumberland Island. The inn was very comfortable and the staff was wonderful. They packed us a delicious picnic lunch for our day trip to the island.
We had a wonderful stay at The Spencer House Inn. The hosts and staff were very friendly and accomodating, the hot breakfasts were delicious, and the room was well-appointed and very comfortable. We highly recommend to all, and look forward to our next stay.
We hadn't planned on staying at the Spencer House but we noticed it when we were exploring the town. We stopped in and found they had a room on the first floor -perfect since an injury had me walking with a cane. A beautiful room and gracious staff and a nice, knowledgeable and friendly owner. It is immaculate!! The breakfast was sumptuous and the coffee especially good. We usually spend less on a night's lodging but this was worth every penny.
We stayed at the Inn because of its proximity to the Okefenokee Swamp. The Inn is a beautifully decorated, high end B&B. everything about our stay was outstanding. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Okefenokee or to watch the trains or just en route to somewhere else. we enjoyed our stay and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Delightful B&B in the absolutely charming village of St Marys. walk to the Cumberland Island ferry is two blocks, as are several restaurants. Rooms are as shown in web photos. Clean and tidy. Exceptional service with a smile. Typically nice hot, cold, and healthy breakfast. Tesla & J1772 electric chargers a plus. Plenty of parking. Elevator. A very good value.
We met friends for a visit to Cumberland Island. We stayed at Spencer House and it was a very good experience. Mary and Mike, innkeepers, and the staff Penny among others, could not have been more accommodating and friendly. A very good experience.
This was our first b&b experience and it was great! The Spencer House Inn is more than we expected. It is beautiful, it is amazingly clean and well appointed. The breakfast is fantastic and all of the staff, including the owners, are wonderful! I would not hesitate to stay here again and will recommend them with confidence. We stayed as a family with our teen. She loved it too!
Concerning the ratings above, three dots for "met my expectations" is a quandary. I have high expectations of b&b's, so if one meets my expectations, that is pretty excellent. Both my wife and I recommend this one for its homey atmosphere and the personable, affectionate hosts.
Our visit was very good. The breakfasts were great. Since the ferry to Cumberland Island was full, Marjda was very helpful in obtaining a private boat to take us to the island. She also arranged lunches for us to take since there is no food service on the island. The lunches were great. If we ever make it back to St Mary;s we would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful hosts, truely outstanding people. We know it is hit or miss with other guests, but the other people staying at the inn were a pleasure to spend time with. Thanks Ted for the cake and coffee on the porch in the evening.
Beautiful home, nicely appointed. But Mardja (hostess) was a little stand-offish making the stay a little "colder" than it should have been. That said, her breakfast was incredible and the night's stay was relaxing and enjoyable.
My husband and I recently stayed at The Inn at Folkston. The proprietors were two of the most gentle, friendly, kind and caring people you can meet. After our first night, I knew we had a busy day ahead and even though the breakfast was delicious, I was still hungry. Ted asked if I had had enough, I kinda made a face, and was honest with him. The next thing I knew I had more french toast and sausage, with a smile. We had the Garden Room, which is large and has a separate sitting area. There was plenty of room to unpack, and to relax. There is no TV, which was nice, actually. There is a large living room to be used by the guests that does have a TV, and lots of chairs. There were even home-made cookies in the hallway, and a refrigerator that all the guests could use. It seems that 60 trains pass through this town daily, which I didn't know until we got there. I was concerned about them keeping me awake, so I had ear plugs next to the bed, if needed. If the trains ran all night, I didn't know, since I slept great! Great little getaway, homey, lots of room in your guest room, and great proprietors!!!
We had a wonderful stay with Ted. Our room was so warm and cozy. It was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful. We enjoyed our talks with Ted and the other guests. Love the hot chocolate in the evenings. Thanks Ted.
