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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Great little B&B. Stopped in on our way back to FL for a night. Stayed in room 404 which was adorable! Light continental breakfast available in common area. Very cute outside deck area with fire pit and corn hole. Walking distance (about .5 miles) to downtown St. Mary's and bikes available to ride into town! We will plan on staying... More

I Visit St Marys several times per year, and this is THE MOST Perfect stay... at Emma's! :-D. The hospitality of Angie & Jimmie far surpass one's expectations! The rooms are always beautifully decorated & very clean. Bicycles available allow for thorough perusing of coastal St. Marys, and well-kept grounds enable quiet & peaceful contemplation. In the evenings gather on... More

This was our first time visiting St. Mary’s and/or staying at Emma’s Cottage House. We are ultimately headed to island camp at Cumberland Island. After being in a car for more than 6 hours, Angie knew we needed some much needed outdoor activity wherein she immediately recommended a bike ride to explore both the coastal town and lunch options.

I had wanted to go to Cumberland Island for an early birthday celebration and hopped on Google to find a bed and breakfast. Emma's was the better price, and I couldn't imagine a better experience. Jimmy is very helpful and makes you feel at home. We stayed in 403 and everything was great. They have a community room with a... More
