We took a long-weekend to St. Simons for a family birthday outing. Epworth is a retreat location that we had been to in the past for both Church related events and work events. It has extensive grounds with hundred year old live oaks, Spanish moss, walking and biking paths, pool, tennis courts, basketball court, playgrounds, and cafeteria. The rooms are basic. They are not the focus and are not intended to be luxury accommodations. The grounds, atmosphere, and other parts of the facility more than make up for the basic nature of the rooms. We stayed on the 3rd floor of the Robertson Building at the end overlooking the dock and marina that is next door to Epworth - breathtaking view! Lovely staff, nice cafeteria, and a very relaxing atmosphere that is excellent for families because there is no alcohol allowed on the campus. We were the only people in the whole building but they opened it and had maid service because I wanted to be overlooking the pier. What a great group of people run Epworth.
