Superb attention to detail...all our needs were met. Felt like we were visiting friends in their home. Loved every minute of our stay. We will definitely stay there again.

We stayed two nights at the Spencer House over the 4th of July. When finalizing the reservation, we were advised that St Marys would be having a parade the morning of the 4th and if we arrived in time, we could sit on the porch overlooking the parade route. Since we were just 30 miles away on Amelia Island, we were able to make the quick trip and enoy a typical small town 4th of July celebration and we appreciated the information in advance of arriving.

We also really enjoyed staying with Mary and Mike in their beautiful Inn. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom clean and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent each morning, with lots of choices and always with a hot dish option. I especially loved the homemade coffee cakes! In the afternoon there was also a desert, and both days the options were to good to pass up. We had reservations for the 2nd day at Cumberland, and took Mary up on the option of the packed lunch...which was excellent and hit the spot after hiking around the island.

I would highly recommend the Spencer House to anyone that is visiting St Marys...we will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed at the Spencer House Inn for two nights last week. We loved the bed and breakfast --- Mike and Mary are wonderful hosts. This was my husband's first time at a B and B ---- he hasn't stopped raving about the inn and the innkeepers! Thanks for a wonderful visit!

The Spencer House Inn knows all about hospitality and delivers it well. The inn owners really care about their guests and make sure to take care of any need no matter how small. The location is great for visiting all the shops and museums in St. Marys. It is also just a block away from the Cumberland Island shuttle. They will assist you with tips and the best lunch in town to take with you to the island. Following their island tips made for an amazing trip to the island where our picnic lunch view included frolicing wild horses and their colts.

The rooms were spotless, roomy and comfortable. Don't miss the Coastal Georgia Film Museum near by!

Room Tip: Request a claw tub!

This gem of a bed and breakfast is exactly what we needed, a quiet, much slower moving, elegant bed and breakfast, delightfully decorated on the coast of Georgia. Warm, easygoing ambiance, excellent service and facilities, great breakfasts and packed lunches (for our trip to Cumberland Island of course.) Sat on the porch and watched a huge thunderstorm pass through before we headed out to a local dinner with fresh fish caught that day. We'll be back!

The Spencer House is a delightful historical inn that has been well maintained but without compromising its historical charm. The rooms and bathrooms and spotless. The service was warm and accommodating to all our needs. We were able to enjoy every aspect of our stay including references to great local restaurants. If you decide to take the ferry to Cumberland Island, be sure to purchase the lunch for two filled with a nice sandwich, drinks, and many healthy snacks. Our sincere thanks to Mary and her entire staff for a wonderful weekend.

We highly recommend the Spencer Inn.
