“A Wonderfully Idiosyncratic Southern Experience”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

Unfortunately humour does not come across the internet well. I would have said "the austerity of the decor is relieved by a few antiques tastefully displayed," but might have been taken seriously.
Jack Waters, our genial host is a collector, fortunately with excellent taste. Nearly every available vertical or horizontal surface is occpuied by something of interest and/or artistic merit. Many of the better paintings are his own creations and quite good. The rooms are certainly comfortable, if a bit over-furnished. Everything is, of course spotlessly clean. The breakfasts are the highlight of a memorable stay. The food is varied, Southern and wonderful. I have never really enjoyed either biscuits and gravy or grits before, but Jack's, served on successive days were glorious, helping anyone unfamiliar with good Southern food to understand just what makes it so compelling. And even the food took second place to Jack's engaging conversation. It is easy to spend a couple or three hours "at table" with Jack, and leave with a new friend. His partner Matthew Hill was less in evidence, he met us on arrival but had to leave before we breakfasted each day.
Brunswick Georgia was itself a little disappointing, we arrived on a sunday and had to return to the interstate to find a restaurant open for dinner, and then ended up in a dry county. Most of Brunswick's retail activity has been transferred to a mall outside town, but St. Simon's Island is just a hop away and has many good restaurants.Jekyll is interesting but has fewer places to eat.

We've been going every year for many years. This B&B is 10 minutes from St Simons island. So, it is very convenient. I cannot say enough good things about this place. The hosts are as nice as they can be. On our final day after breakfast, we talked for 3 hours over coffee. It was like they were old friends. The place is spotless and the rooms are so comfortable. Don't miss this gem, 2 minutes from historic downtown Brunswick and 10 minutes from St. Simons island.

Our stay at WatersHill was early August 2012. We are a family of 4 with 2 "young adult" children. We wanted them to have the Bed and Breakfast experience. Unfortunately for our kids, if this is the standard we have set, it will be difficult for them to find another to match.The moment we walked in the door, our eyes were spinning, trying to find just one beautiful place to land. We had arrived later than planned, but Matthew's casual demeanor allowed us to settle in comfortably. We played a board game that evening in the upstairs parlor between our rooms. We laughed. We relaxed. In the morning we met Jack! What a hoot! The two of them provided a delicious (aka YUMMY) breakfast. And the conversation was delightful! Light banter and engagement of the entire table! We hope to do this again! Don't miss this!! Wish we had more time...

Recently moved from a Chicago suburb to Aiken, SC (an amazing place). Now that we are almost settled we decided to explore the South. Made a very last minute reservation and decided to "take our chances" with what was available. From the moment Jack greeted us at the front door until we left the following day we were enchanted by this Southern gentleman (from Ohio)! His home is pristine and inviting. His collection of "stuff" as he likes to call it was
a treasure to experience. Relax on the front porch or the upstairs parlor. Enjoy a cozy breakfast...Get suggestions on what to do in the area. We arrived as guests and left as friends.
Sorry we did not get to meet Matt but I am sure we will on our next visit!

Room Tip: Four spacious rooms upstairs. A smaller room off of the dining room with it's own delightful out...

The gracious hosts at Waters Hill B&B made us feel at home with their Southern hospitality. Our accommodations were comfortable, spacious, and clean. Situated near downtown Brunswick on a very relaxed, quiet street, it is the perfect place for an overnight stay or romantic getaway. The home is also a treasure trove of antiques and art work providing a perfect backdrop for your stay. One of the nicer B&B's we have stayed at.

This was our second stay with Jack and Matthew and this time we got to enjoy Brunswick much more. I am in love with this city. Jack and Matthew are exceptional hosts and it feels more like staying with family not to mention that the breakfasts are phenomenal.
