This was a short trip to the coast to go biking at Crooked River State Park and exploring Cumberland Island for the day. I was traveling with my 10 yr old. We got in around 4ish on a Sunday afternoon. Jimmy the proprietor was there to show us around. We didn't stay in the 'big house' but out back in the other units. We stayed in the Loft bedroom - I believe it was the most economical. I thought my son would get a kick out of it and I was right. It was perfect for the two of us - very cozy. If you have any claustrophobia, choose something else but if you like cozy and self-contained - you'll really like it. We only stayed 1 night but we really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the neighborhood. Breakfast was really good - breakfast casserole, grits, watermelon and english muffins with orange marmalade. My son is a picky eater and Angie noticed and offered to fix him a bowl of cheerios. The house was absolutely beautiful - decorated for the holidays. They had a ton of Christmas candy - my son thought he really hit the jackpot! Angie & Jimmy let us keep our car & bikes there while we were exploring Cumberland Island which I thought was very nice. The B&B is only 4 blocks from the waterfront and is in a very quiet nice neighborhood. I would definitely be back one day. They have a variety of rooms to suit your needs.
