Loved Cumberland Island and enjoyed the Greyfield Inn. The atmosphere was terrific with all the semi-tropical vegetation--the palm trees, live oaks, and Spanish moss. It was definitely a relaxing get-away. Very private, even when Inn was full
Food was uneven, but on balance, very good. Dinners were very good, breakfasts were good, and lunches were a disappointing sandwich, chips, bite of salad, and cookies nicely presented in a picnic basket.
Communal meals were nice, as the other guests were pleasant and interesting, and added to the enjoyment. Most of the guests were middle-aged and lived within a five-hour drive.
Beach was deserted, with gorgeous white sand. Ocean was shallow, making swimming a bit difficult. Knowing bull sharks (an aggressive shark) were plentiful in water made me hesitant to go in.
Cycling the flat roads was very enjoyable. Kayaking less so, as one had to awkwardly enter the kayak from the elevated dock and the coast line was not interesting. Saw various birds and sharks. Naturalists were good at pointing out and identifying wildlife, but were not as good as naturalists I've encountered elsewhere.
Our room in the Big cottage was nicely appointed and spacious, but didn't have historic moldings or architectural features like the main house had. Living room and porch areas were communal.
