Found this charming B&B on TripAdvisor and we stayed for 2 nights while we visited Cumberland Island. I've lived in Florida my whole life so this place has the vintage coastal feel I love so much. Our room had painted beadboard on the walls which reminded me of the awesome little fishing cottages my family used to rent when I... More

We were excited to stay at Emma's Cottage House after reading reviews and seeing pictures online and even upon driving up to the location. The stay after that turned mediocre at best. We knocked on the front door of the main house and were greeted by the innkeeper's daughter (with a screaming baby in the background) who searched for our... More

The room we booked was the smallest room of the group, but it was very comfortable, quite cute and perfect for our needs. Right next to our room was the breakfast area, stocked to the brim with juices, fresh fruit, cereals, oatmeals, breakfast bars and a Kurig coffee maker. We felt like a guest in our friend's home! We loved... More

St Marys is one of our favorite towns in the World and anytime we visit St. Marys we can always count on an amazing stay here. Peaceful, clean, beautifully decorated and the most hospital owners that any guest could ask for. Jimmy and Angie are so warm and being from the area are so knowledgable about this beautiful area. We... More

We had reservations and nearly lost a wheel 5 miles from our exit after traveling back up north from the Florida Keys. We were able to get a tow to a nearby. I called to tell them we would be checking in late and they offered to pick us up from the garage. They showed us around and explained some... More

Stayed here recently for a combination business/pleasure trip after finding it on the Visit St. Mary's website. Quaint and clean, the landscaping is gorgeous. Jimmy was so helpful and knowledgeable. Next time I'm in the area, I'll be here.

This was the most Charming place you'll ever visit!! Angie & Jimmy are very welcoming & their Southern hospitality was very much appreciated. This is a true gem in a special little town. If you're looking to get away from the city crowds for "peace & quiet" & plenty of R&R look no further!! This Historical Home is located on... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Emma’s Cottage House, formally known as Emma’s Bed and Breakfast (March 2014). We were a little skeptical when we read the reviews that it was no longer deemed a “Bed and Breakfast”. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Emma’s a couple years back and were worried that it wouldn’t be what we had... More

I found this by searching "lodging St. Marys, GA" Reviewers raved about breakfast and Southern hospitality. Their website told of change from B&B since family moved into main house. Told of bkfst "on the deck," tho' still showed old reviews and noted Trip Advisor award for 2013. We made reservation on Jan. 6 for 4-day Feb. stay. Room 401 is... More

Stayed here with the boyfriend during spring break. We stayed in room 404 one night and 403 the next because we simply couldn't decide! Each was beautifully decorated and the perfect size for us. We borrowed the bikes one night for a late night bike ride and had a bonfire in the fire pit the next. They even let us... More

Emma's Bed and Breakfast is situated on four acres in historical downtown St. Marys, Georgia. The grounds host many Southern favorites such as magnolias, gardenias, jasmine, azaleas, hydrangeas, and camellias. Many are left over from Miss Emma's own nursery on the property. Current owners have added a goldfish pond and Koi pond to add to the tranquil setting.
