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

I really enjoyed it. It is surrounded by the sea (or water), and has very beautiful scenery. There are very many willow trees and they made it more beautiful. The food also was very good, no one can complain about it.

We stayed in the older motor court section of Epworth and had it to ourselves in late August. Have stayed here many times because we like the full kitchen facilities and separate bedroom (also, it is the least expensive). A sofa in the separate den pulls out into a bed, making this the perfect place for families with kids. Beautiful... More

Every year, we at Mount Nebo United Methodist have our Church Retreat at Epworth By the Sea. Every year, we fall in love with this place all over again. The very moment you enter the gate you feel the peace and the serenity and the presence of God. This is truly a world class conference & retreat center and a... More

I was not prepared for the lush beauty of this place, or for the gracious reception. On the banks of the river with an ocean view from my second floor room in Turner Lodge, I wanted to sleep with the balcony door open to let in that delightful breeze. On the grounds of an old plantation, just driving onto the... More

Our first time to EBTS. We will be back. Stayed in Turner Lodge 3rd floor with a balcony overlooking the intercostal. It was a standard room but I would like to see a mini fridge and coffee maker. We had the place to ourselves tight before Labor Day. 3 miles from the beach and lots of good seafood. We did... More

We have been to Epworth almost every time we go to SSI. Nice and quiet. They tore down the old motel we used to stay in. We stayed in Pitts. Very nice. Doesn't have a coffee maker, fridge, or microwave, but who cares. Stroll the grounds and take in the beauty. Nice bed, we stayed in a king room. No... More

We spent July 18th & 19th in Turner Lodge. I think it is the best accommodation here. The balcony, which overlooks the Frederica River, has a breathtaking view. Epworth is peaceful, quiet and safe. I have always enjoyed staying here.
