“Southern hospitality”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

So close to I95, but a world away . Glad we found Mary, Mike and the rest of the team. Super nice, clean, comfortable, cozy, and great food. Very nice to find beverages and supplies like sun screen on site for sale at very reasonable prices. The packed lunch for Cumberland Island was terrific and a good value. Great location in the nice friendly walk around town of Saint Mary's. Watching the Mardi Gras parade from the second story veranda a bonus. A nice respite from Vermont winter. We'll be back one day.

Excellent Inn, great staff, great food and just a short walk to everything we wanted to see in St. Marys. Breakfasts were wonderful not just the food but also for meeting other guests and sharing tips on our stay.

We were looking for a quick getaway from Central Florida and decided to explore Cumberland Island. We found Spencer House on TA and it had great reviews, and for good reason! Mary was every bit as nice as other guests commented, and the Inn was spotless and classic. We enjoyed the details in the room and throughout the common areas, and relaxed on the large porch in the evening. It was a short walk to the ferry and was convenient for our quick getaway. She and her staff are a wealth of knowledge of the area, assisting us with dinner reservations, ferry information and really making us feel welcome. Only downside I found was that the area did not have many good dining options. Plan on eating very casual and mostly fried fair and you won't be disappointed. If you've not been to Cumberland Island, do yourself a favor and check it out, and when you do, make your plans to stay at the Spencer House.

Room Tip: Our room was right off the 2nd floor porch, which was convenient to enjoy evening cocktails.

Mary runs this beautiful house with masterful professionalism, friendliness and care. You feel she wants to deliver the best possible experience for her guests. Our room was a Victorian gem, breakfast was hearty and the packed lunch for our trip to Cumberland Island was generous. You get a feeling of being well looked after here.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are best

My husband, dtr and fiance, and I spent 3 nights at Spencer House in April. It was wonderful. The house is a beauty: clean and charming with lovely rooms (ours had a claw-foot soaking tub!), soft "oldies" music wafts through the halls along with the aroma of home-baked cookies in the oven before afternoon tea. It's a short walk to the pier to catch the ferry to Cumberland Island (make sure to plan ahead for tours--Innkeeper Mary will help you with that AND pack lunches for your party to take with you). Owners Mike and Mary were so helpful--each evening was like coming home after being out and about. A glass of wine on one of the porches concludes an idyllic day. Close to good restaurants, shops, and museums. I didn't want to leave! Hope to be back to this charming respite.

Room Tip: All rooms on 2nd and 3rd floors looked lovely. There is one guest room on the first floor. There i...

This B&B was perfect for the special get-away for my son and I! Loved the atmosphere, food and great service. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that we were happy! They packed a wonderful lunch for our trip to Cumberland Island!

We stayed here for 2 nights in late March. I wish we could have stayed longer. I am a photographer, and came here so that we could spend a day on Cumberland Island. This was perfect. We had room 200, which is very comfortable and spacious. The ferry is within walking distance too. The Inn is beautiful, the owners and staff very gracious and the food was great. You can get a lunch to take to Cumberland for $8.95 each. It was more than I even expected. Such a treat. My sister and I even got in a sunrise shot our last morning. If you walk to the end of the street that the Inn is on....you can get a great sunrise view over the marsh.
