I have stayed here many times and always a great place. The costs of rooms are very reasonable. Beautiful grounds and right on the Fredrica River. The Turner Lodge is on the water and all rooms have balconies and water views. This is a Methodist Church Retreat property as well but the mix of folks and fun makes it a... More

This is a Methodist Retreat Center that has accommodation. It is beautiful, and is perfect for those looking for a little extra peace/ reflection in their life. The property overlooks the water (with piers) and ancient oaks with Spanish moss cover the property. There is a dining hall that has excellent food with a variety. Very affordable. Also, this is...

Stayed here for a conference. Average "motel-like" rooms. Cost of all cafeteria-style meals is included in the cost of the stay, which can get pricy if you are staying here with a family. Scenery is gorgeous. The property sits on the banks of a river and marsh and there are hundreds of huge oaks draped in moss. For the purpose... More

If you're not staying at Turner Lodge, don't book! Rooms are tiny, cramped and outdated! Very uncomfortable and the room also had a stench. The grounds are nice, however, this property is in need of renovation.

Several members of our church participated in a retreat Memorial weekend. Not only did we enjoy the seminar that was presented, the extra treat was the location they chose to hold it. Epworth by the Sea is an incredibly beautiful place. Even though there were several groups on grounds, there was always a sense of serenity and peace. The staff... More

Stayed Friday to Monday (May 1st-4th) at the Turner Lodge at Epworth. It was my fourth stay at Epworth but the first in the Lodge, which is the newest building. The room was clean, with iron and ironing board and hair dryer. Had a sink and vanity inside the bathroom and also outside the bathroom. We had a balcony with... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and really have mixed feelings about this place. Pros: The grounds here are breathtaking! From the trees to the docks to Lovely Lane Chapel and the prayer tower, I was taken aback at it's beauty. Their prices are great, and you have a lot of different room options available. The beds are super comfortable and... More

Many entertainment, restaurants, dolphin watching tour, local craft and painting available nearby. Take the guided tour of the Island. Go see the Fort Museum. You need to reserve one year in advance it is in demand.

We have been having a great time exploring St. Simons Island for the past three weeks. We read about this place and we were curious about what we would find. It was a fun and interesting experience. We went to view the former slave cabins that have been restored by a local garden club. That was interesting and they are... More

This facility is exactly what we expected it to be. As a retreat/conference center, we anticipated that it would not be a 5 star/5 diamond hotel. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and provided what we needed for the time that we were on the island. The food was served cafeteria style. It was good, and there were a variety of... More
