Mitty and Mary Ferguson have caretaken their family's precious Southern home on the pearl that is Cumberland Island, Georgia, in integrity, grace and profoundly loving care. Their Greyfield Inn is an experience of traditions of New England, the Northeast and the South, with hospitality, warm care, great food, ambiance, well loved rooms, reading, visiting, shelling, biking on soft sandy lanes amid the Maritime Southern Island forest. One's stay includes Greyfield's ferry transport from Amelia Island's Fernandina Beach, Florida, to Greyfield and return, one's room, Southern breakfasts, picnic lunches, hors d'ouerves and formal dinners, with a fine outdoor oyster roast on Saturday evenings. There is a superb living room, traditional library, grand formal porch with two grand swings, naturalist tours, bicycles, kayaks, fishing gear, and kindness. Rooms vary in size, with traditional decor, and sometimes with shared baths. Choose according to comfort, whether in the main house or the two cottages, and be aware that you are staying in an Inn which is a historic home, living in intimacy, in relationship to the guests who will be there with you, as the wild horses cross the front field and as a chime calls you all to dinner in the evening. Your isolated comfort as a modern American or traveler from afar is to be left at the ferry dock. This is a rare experience of fine natural gentility and goodness, lovingly extended by the Carnegie family descendants to their guests. Their Grandmother and ancestors are shining down on them from the Heavens. I have never had a more precious time in place, or with the goodness of humanity. Our Valentine's weekend was unforgettable and I am eminently grateful to the family and staff.
