We were most pleased with our stay at the Spencer House. The owners, Mary and Mike, were charming and very helpful to the guest about information concerning the activities in the St Marys area and Cumberland Island. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. Supper quiet and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and make sure to ask them to prepare the French Toast one of the days you are there. Wonderful place to stay and one that you

We stayed at the Spencer House for my birthday weekend in February, 2014. Mary greeted us and could not have been nicer or more informative. We got a tour of the Inn straight away, then off to our room. Perfect! Their place was charming and spotless! The staff was so friendly. The lunch packed for us for our trips over two days to Cumberland Island was great. The best thing there? The breakfast!! Trust me!! On our first morning we were served the most delicious french toast I've ever had! Real hot maple syrup made this french toast simply melt in my mouth! There were lots of other things available (cereals, bagels, jams, homemade breakfast cake/bread...I could go on and on). On our second morning, for the breakfast entree there was some sort of egg souffle thing that was to die for (light, fluffy, with bits of something else in it). Crisp bacon, toast... different juices. All simply fabulous! We are going back to Cumberland Island in April with my daughter and her husband. We thought for about two seconds that we might try the Greyfield Inn on Cumberland, but after two seconds I thought about Mike and Mary, the food, their graciousness, all the information they provided about St. Mary's, the comfort of the room, and that was it. We'll always stay at the Spencer House Inn Bed and Breakfast!! It's the best!!!

This is the best location in beautiful St Marys. St Marys itself is amazing. There is no place in the US like it. Seems to be a secret. Spencer House is wonderful. Our sons loved it too. Don't stay at a motel, this is a place you will remember the rest of your life.

Room Tip: Take the ferry to Cumberland Island!

Mary and Mike were wonderful hosts and my sister and I had a lovely weekend. I highly recommend this B and B. Great location as well. A short walk to the Cumberland Island Ferry and excellent restaurants. I am a vegan so Mike whipped up some great oatmeal of which I was very appreciative...again..no need to look further for a place to stay in St. Marys.

We truly enjoyed our stay here. The owners and staff were so helpful. The packaged lunches they provided for our trip to Cumberland Island was plentiful and enjoyable. It was decorated very nicely for Christmas. We wish there had been more to do in the town as we would like to stay here again.

It was just by pure chance that we decided to stay in St Marys on our way from South Carolina to Florida and it was the find of the holiday. We loved the village of St Marys - so tranquil and quaint but with everything you need for a relaxing few days holiday. The Christmas lights were on which made it all the more special. We stayed at Spencer House located on the main road near the riverside. Perfect location for walking to restaurants and local shops. Built as an Inn the B&B has a lot of bedrooms however this does not lessen its charm. The rooms are all a good size with all the amenities needed and very comfortable. We stayed in Room 206 - a Queen Size room but with a number of sitting areas and plenty of room for all our luggage. The Inn also has the benefit of an elevator which is unusual but very welcome. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were made to feel most welcome by all the staff. If we are ever back in the area we will definitely stay again.

We chose Spencer House for its easy access to our destination -- Cumberland Island National Park -- and we were extremely pleased with the results. The ferry to Cumberland Island is a very short walk away so we did not have to worry about parking at the Ferry terminal.

'Mary, Mike and the staff were a delight and extremely helpful with tips about visiting the Island and suggestions for restaurants in the area. We chose the option of having them prepare our lunch for the island trip and it was well worth the economical charge. We had more than enough food for the two of us throughout our visit to the island with leftovers for our car travel the next day.

The Inn was extremely comfortable, the breakfast offerings were delicious, and we had the added bonus of beautiful Christmas decor for the holiday season.

We have stayed at B&B's in the past and I would say that Spencer House is one of the finer establishments of this genre.
