Emma's Cottage House is a lovely property, with very attractive gardens and outdoor seating for guests, set in the designated historic district of quaint St. Mary's Georgia. This location has a 'Florida' feel to it, with moss-draped trees, lush flower beds, and a sultry laid-back vibe. The St. Mary's waterfront, where visitors to Cumberland Island board the ferry, is a...

Definitely a nice find. Family owned B&B. We had the 501 suite with a cute porch. The towels and sheets were top notch and the decorating was so cute. I could have moved in and stayed. Clean and neat. There is a nice breakfast room with a large choice of Keurig coffees and very nice teas, bagels, yogurt, and fruit....

We attended the Georgia Sierra Club's retreat at Crooked River State Park. Emma's was about 15 minutes from there. The proprietors were so welcoming and accommodating. Our room was very nice. It was tastefully decorated and clean. This is a continental breakfast place where the guests have a kitchen to share. We never saw anyone else in the kitchen. There...

This was our first trip to St. Mary's to fulfill a "bucket list" trip to Cumberland Island. After looking over all the B&B's in St. Mary's we chose Emma's Cottage and are glad we did! We were met by Angie and given the tour of our room #401 and the gathering room for breakfast the next morning. We loved how...

I wouldn't call this facility a "B&B" by a longshot. The pic on the home page would lead you to think that you are staying in what is in the picture. Not so. You park your car, walk to the front door, and it's labelled "private residence." Hmmmmm, maybe go around the back. When you figure it out, the host...

I was visiting Cumberland Island with my daughter Emma for her birthday, so naturally we stayed at Emma's Cottage House! We were greeted by Angie and she gave us a tour of this lovely property, full of beautiful flowers and bird feeders. It was clean, very well maintained and had tons of character. All the rooms look wonderful. We loved...
