Had the most wonderful escape to the Greyfield Inn. The history and nature is splendid. The tranquility of the island and the hotel means you can truly relax. Limited phone signal and no wifi allows you to really switch off. The hotel is beautiful and has kept the building and furniture true to its history so you feel privileged to... More

This has been on our bucket list for quite some time. From the ferry boat ride during which Mitty Ferguson (owner of the Inn) shared history of the island to the actual Inn and the experiences it offers, our two-night stay was excellent! Dinner soon after we arrived was marinated flank steak, done to perfection! Three other couples were at... More

Ate at the Greyfield Inn for a special anniversary. We were very disappointed with the meal. When I booked my reservation I asked what the menu would be and was told the chef would decide the meal. I did not question that because it was such an exquisite place and setting. I was very disappointed in the meal, we had... More

Cumberland Island was a place that I wanted to visit for some years. My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary there. We arrived late Saturday morning and departed Monday morning. It was a short trip. The island is beautiful, the beach spectacular, The Inn very nice. Staff was accommodating and, with a few exceptions, were very pleasant. I... More

A house that was the ultimate in high society 120 years ago, tries to duplicate yesteryear’s experience today. That is a difficult job. The rooms and common areas feature period furnishings and knick-knacks left pretty much as they were in the 1800s. Some rooms have shared baths. The setting, with moss draped live oaks, makes one of the most spectacular... More

If you want a place to unplug and secluded beaches, this is the place. If you want great service and excellent meals, choose another another place. The boat ride over is very uncomfortable, particularly if the captain has a friend he wants to chat with. Then plan on a 45 minute plus ride , no breeze, in the sun. The... More

All of our expectations for our Greyfield's experience were definitely met or far exceeded. The natural ambience is such a welcome diversion from the normal hustle-bustle! We loved our accommodations in the Big Cottage; all the food was fresh & fabulous; and the pride, knowledge & friendliness of every staff member made it obvious they loved being a part of... More

This was not my first time staying on Cumberland Island, but my first time staying at Greyfield Inn. I felt that the total experience was well worth every penny. We traveled on the 12:15 ferry and took the house tour, grabbed our lunches, and went for a bike ride. We then went kayaking before dinner. We had a happy hour... More

We recently enjoyed Memorial Day weekend at the Greyfield Inn. After almost a year checking out Cumberland Island via the web, we made reservations to enjoy our anniversary at Greyfield. Bottom line – it was a fantastic stay. Accommodations – we stayed in the Little Cottage and found it to be very comfortable, well appointed, quiet, and equipped with a... More
