After knowing about this Inn for more than thirty years, I finally decided to surprise my wife with a stay as an anniversary gift. We spent three wonderful days enjoying what it must have been like when it was build about 100 years ago. It is an iconic representation of what the wealthy considered a vacation home to get away...

Very secluded among the live oaks! Loved the laze days watching the horses. The beach is breathtaking. Loved the tour of the island. Staff very friendly. Picnic lunch baskets were wonderful. Room was quaint.

The history and mystery of Cumberland Island has intrigued me since I lived nearby over 30 years ago. A national seashore, accessable by boat only, allows 300 people daily at the park. However 50 private residences are part of the island. One is a Carnegie mansion, called Greyfield, and it offers lodging and dining. Boarding the Lucy Ferguson Ferry at... More

Over the last eleven years, I've had the pleasure of camping and hiking all over Cumberland Island in five separate trips. Each trip has been different and offered an unexpected surprise. Wow! What a surprise for this most recent trip to Cumberland Island! I read recently in Southern Living Magazine that Greyfield Inn accepts reservations for dinner only - depending... More

My wife and I visited the Greyfield Inn for two nights in mid June. We drove to Fernandina Beach, FL where the Inn had a private parking lot. We then went to Cumberland Island on their launch. The Greyfield Inn is the only commercial establishment on the 18 mile long Island. The Inn was built around 1900 by the Carnegie... More

We chose Greyfield Inn and Cumberland Island from our bucket list to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Perfect choice. We were hosted by Carnegie heir Mitty Ferguson and his wife Mary who along with their stellar staff, welcomed us as family. We chose the Master Suite which was large and graciously appointed with early 20th century furniture. The shared bathroom was... More

I struggled with the rating. I find myself wanting others to know how pristine and unique Cumberland Island is - and how very special it is to be guests at Greyfield with all of its history, grandeur, and lovely simplicity. At the same time, I am aware of how outdated the accommodations are (really, we shared a bathroom with others);... More

Having experienced purely magical vacations at the Lodge at Little St. Simons Island, a similar concept with upscale, all-inclusive accommodations on a private island in coastal GA, I was excited to spend a weekend at Greyfield, particularly because, unlike LSSI, the island has wild horses. Unfortunately, we were so disappointed that we will likely not return. The entire tone for... More

Just back from a long weekend at Greyfield. An anniversary trip with my husband. You will really feel that you have gotten away. Peace and quite, a wee bit of cell phone coverage, no wifi, no tv. Perfection. We stayed in the large cottage. Great air-conditioning, very important, all the comforts one might hope for. Super comfy bed, slept well.... More

We had a Wonderful experience. The well appointed room was tastefully decorated in antiques. The in is a 115 year old home built by Thomas Carnegie for his daughter and the Innkeepers are direct descendants. Mitty and Mary and are very pleasant and knowledgable about the history of the family, the inn and the island. This is the only Inn... More
