My husband and I had a relaxing three day stay over Valentine's weekend. We had a nice trip over by boat and were greeted and shown around the property with other arriving guests. We had an immediate option to see part of the island and went on a wonderful 1.5 hour tour. The tours offered daily are a must and... More

All the superlatives are true--beautiful, charming, historic, fabulous food, scenic, hospitable, luxurious. But the thing I loved about the Greyfield is the way they anticipate what you'll want before you know you want it. They wait on you for some things and let you help yourself to others. You feel like the most welcome house guest. The sun slanting through... More

We enjoyed a fabulous “only guests at the INN” mid week experience in January. From arrival to departure we felt like it was our own place and we were a very welcome to join the “Ferguson Family” at the only non camping accommodation on the island. We biked low tide along 17 miles of beach – didn’t see another soul.... More

I loved everything about the Inn-from the ferry ride over with the staff who were so sweet-love ya Mary! who thought I looked like a lady from Game of thrones to the staff working on the Island. Everyone worked so hard in front and behind the scenes to ensure everyone had a great time. The weather was incredible-65 and sunny... More

My third visit to Greyfield Inn on Cumberland Island, and like the old saying goes, you cannot go back because it will not be as you remembered. Greyfield is a lovely B&B with all the antiquity charm of days gone by but truly this charm should be left behind. The house is old and cold, with dim lighting. The bedrooms... More

We took the day trip they offer from Amelia Island. The hotel provides ferry service to Cumberland Island, and then provides a tour of the historic property, lunch, bikes, fishing gear, kayaks, refreshments, etc. The whole experience was wonderful. Very friendly staff, delicious picnic lunch made to order to our dietary needs and preferences, in an old-fashioned picnic basket, all... More

Our family stayed in the little cottage, forestalling any issues with shared bathrooms, shared walls, and 3rd floor walk-ups, etc. Presumably better plumbing too (but not great; this is a remote island after all). The cottage was simple but charming. We loved the old inn and its decor. The basement kitchen where you picked up your picnic lunch was actually... More

My wife surprised me with a two night stay at this fabulous inn for my birthday. The Inn is a historic home built by the Carnegie family and now run by descendants as a hotel on an island that is now 95% National Seashore/Park managed by the Park Service (and very well given their budgetary constraints). The Inn is full... More

I was given the wonderful gift of a 3 day trip to the Greyfield Inn for Thanksgiving and my birthday. We joined another couple in the little cottage, and had one of the most pleasant travel experiences I have encountered. Treated well by a very friendly staff, everyone we met from porters to the owner and his wife, were warm... More

Greyfield is a very special place which my family has had the opportunity to turn into a tradition. This was the 6th Thanksgiving we have spent there and I am grateful for the opportunity. The inn is in beautiful shape, with subtle improvements made over the year and an excellent staff. With the destruction of historic sites every day, and... More
