My sister and I went to the Spencer House Inn B & B for spring break in March 2013. It was a perfect place to relax! The home is right in the downtown area of St. Marys, GA. You can walk to the ferry to go to Cumberland Island or walk to any of the restaurants in town.
Mary's knowledge of the area was very precise! She informed us that the Walmart is 8 lights down, and it was! Any question you have about the area or surrounding areas, she is the one to talk to.
The house was very comfy. We didn't have nice weather during the 2 days that we were there, but it was perfect for us because all we wanted to do is stay put. The living room area was a great place to just relax and read a book. The Veranda on the second floor is a wonderful place to sit and rock in their wooden rocking chairs, too.
The breakfast was a bit of a surprise for me, however. It starts off with continental syle food. They also offer an extra breakfast to you if you choose. The first morning they had oatmeal with apricot and an egg frittata dish. (Which was delicious!) The second morning they offered a cheese omelette with bacon. (This was delicious, too).
In the late afternoon there is always some type of homemade dessert that is made by Mike. (Request the chocolate German cake. It was wonderful!) Coffee, tea, and water is always available in their very spacious dining room.
Mary and Mike were wonderful hosts, but very business like to me. Once your question was answered, they went on their way to accomplish other tasks throughout the house. Holly, on the other hand, made you feel welcomed in the home. She was a very easy to talk to and was really interested in what you had to say.

Room Tip: Be careful of the stand alone tubs. There is no place to hold onto when you need to wash your feet. It is very slippery!

Even though this was my first expierence with a B&B, was not sure what to expect. the location of the spencer inn, was fantastic. with the exception of going to dinner at banzai's my vehicle never left the parking lot until it was time to go home. mary was very informative about where to eat and the area. lang's seafood by the way, definately worth the trip. the staff at spencer house went above and beyond and if you need to know anything about anything up there, mary is the go to person. for an older lady, she does not stop. very impressive. the geust who also stayed there, very nice people. the only draw back, again this was my first B&B, was breakfast. it was very good, please do not get me wrong. was not sure if there is supposed to be more of a selection of hot food or it could just be me.either way, i did not leave hungry. the building itself is in excellent condition, decorated very nicely and certainly has character. if/when i ever go to cumberland island again, the spencer house inn will definately be reserved for the trip.

This B&B is so-o-o accommodating. Mary and Mike make you feel right at home and they both have a great deal of knowledge about the area. Don't pass up this charming Inn. You can tell the love and care that is given to each and every aspect of the Inn experience by the owners and staff. Enjoy!

This was our first trip to Cumberland Island, Georgia. I had been planning this trip for about a year because there are arrangements and reservations to make and other things to consider. At the top of the list of arrangements to make is... "Where to stay?" As a business traveler my first thought was to look for a corporate hotel either in St. Mary's or nearby. There's not too many corporate hotels in St. Mary's but on Amelia Island there are several to choose from including a Ritz-Carlton where I'm a platinum member. I also considered staying in the inn on Cumberland Island but in the end I decided to stay at the Spencer House Inn.

The Spencer House Inn is the perfect place to stay when you visit Cumberland Island...

First, it's almost across the street from where you catch the ferry over to Cumberland Island. Therefore, you can leave your car at the Inn and walk to the pier. And when you return after a long day on Cumberland you're back in your room within a couple of minutes after getting off the ferry.

Second, Mike and Mary are superb hosts. It's clear to see that they've gone to great lengths to make Spencer House Inn comfortable and inviting.

Third, Mike and Mary will serve you a great breakfast that will fortify you for a day on Cumberland Island. They also offer (for a very reasonable price) a box for you to carry over to the island. I highly recommend purchasing their lunch. Our lunches were great and you can't beat the convenience of Mary handing you your lunch as you walk out the door to catch the ferry. And, when you return from Cumberland Island Mike and Mary will tea and cookies ready and waiting to be consumed by weary island explorers.

Room Tip: We were in a room on the second floor adjacent to the porch... it was great!

As one of the Authors of the book "Cumberland Island - A Treasure of Memories" I always stay with Mike and Mary at the Spencer House on my visits to Cumberland, Okefenokee and the St. Mary's area. They are great hosts and their Breakfast has been great every time I have been. They both have vast knowledge about the area as far as places to visit and for advise on where to get a great meal. The house has so much character and history about it. I have stayed in several rooms there and each one has been great. Great antique furnishings, very comfortable beds and all have private baths. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on my trips to that area.
