The Riverview Hotel is my favorite destination on earth. I have been visiting Cumberland Island and the Riverview for decades, and even though the old girl is in need of renovations, she still has class. When you visit this hotel, you are transported back to a simpler, kinder time; one where people are recognized, and feel welcomed and appreciated.The sunrises over the marsh in the early morning are vividly colorful, and the raucous calls of the boat tailed grackles add to its charm. I have spent many a early morning on the porch with a cup of coffee, and watched the sun rise over the marsh. Jerry Brandon and his wife make you feel like family, and their pets roaming the halls always made me feel like I was at home. The hotel is close to a hundred years old and is time worn, but clean and inviting. If you want sterile, lack luster accommodations where you are treated like just another fee, go to any of the big chains. If you want a warm unique experience in a place with history, charm, and warmth, stay at the Riverview Hotel.
