Unfortunately humour does not come across the internet well. I would have said "the austerity of the decor is relieved by a few antiques tastefully displayed," but might have been taken seriously.
Jack Waters, our genial host is a collector, fortunately with excellent taste. Nearly every available vertical or horizontal surface is occpuied by something of interest and/or artistic merit. Many of the better paintings are his own creations and quite good. The rooms are certainly comfortable, if a bit over-furnished. Everything is, of course spotlessly clean. The breakfasts are the highlight of a memorable stay. The food is varied, Southern and wonderful. I have never really enjoyed either biscuits and gravy or grits before, but Jack's, served on successive days were glorious, helping anyone unfamiliar with good Southern food to understand just what makes it so compelling. And even the food took second place to Jack's engaging conversation. It is easy to spend a couple or three hours "at table" with Jack, and leave with a new friend. His partner Matthew Hill was less in evidence, he met us on arrival but had to leave before we breakfasted each day.
Brunswick Georgia was itself a little disappointing, we arrived on a sunday and had to return to the interstate to find a restaurant open for dinner, and then ended up in a dry county. Most of Brunswick's retail activity has been transferred to a mall outside town, but St. Simon's Island is just a hop away and has many good restaurants.Jekyll is interesting but has fewer places to eat.
