“Charming!”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

This was our second visit to Emma's. We throughly enjoyed the town of St. Marys. The town's historic charm is well matched with the Bed and Breakfast's beautiful setting and rooms. We had the perfect hosts, Angie and Jimmy to give us their own history of the city. Both were incredibly knowledgable of all of the towns happenings. They made us feel at home right away, like we had known them for years. It is set right off the beaten path of the historic section of town, creating privacy that was not available at the other bed and breakfasts that we researched in the town. We plan on returning as soon as we can!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 501 with our 7 year old twin boys

Stayed at Emma's as part of a wedding weekend- it was tranquil amidst the busyness of the weekend! Angie, Jimmy and Ansley made the weekend extra special with their hospitality. The bridal party took many of their photos at the B&B and I have no doubts that they will be beautiful! The front steps would be a gorgeous place to have a wedding ceremony. This was my first visit to St.Mary's but if/when I return, Emma's will be my top choice to stay for the visit! Just can't say enough good things!

Our recent stay at Emma's B&B was filled with warmth and southern hospitality. Our hosts were welcoming and gracious, and made us feel at home. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfasts were delicious as well as beautiful. The house and many antiques are lovely.

Staying at Emma's B&B while in the St. Mary's area enriches a visit to this quaint and friendly town. The beautiful rooms on the main floor provide pleasure to the eye and comfort for the body. I especially enjoyed the library for reading and the parlor of conversing with the knowledgable Innkeepers, who provide historical tidbits about the property and town, while also respecting a visitor's privacy.
Emma's B&B provides easy access to shops and shoreline, as well as to King's Bay Submarine Base, if it would be that you are visiting a submariner who is based there. That was our purpose for being in St. Mary's, a community of which we have grown very fond. The shopkeepers and restaurant owners are gracious.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Emma's over 4th of July this year and had a wonderful experience. The house is beautiful, feels very private and the owners are wonderful and welcoming. It felt like I was staying at a friends home. The location couldn't be more ideal as it is in walking distance to the waterfront but off the main drag. So we could escape the crowds on a weekend such as 4th of July. I would strongly recommend Emma's to anyone traveling to St. Mary's and I hope to return soon!

Room Tip: We are filmmakers and had some equipment with us. The King sized room in the house was ideal for hav...

My husband and I recently traveled to St. Marys, GA for a few days
and fell in love with this bed and breakfast. It offers beautiful rooms, a wonderful
breakfast and excellent hosts. It's location near the downtown area, waterfront and Cumberland Island ferry is very convenient. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking
for a GREAT bed and breakfast experience.

This is our second time to stay at Emma’s. The home is simply beautiful from the landscaping to the room decor. It is centrally located in St. Marys with everything within walking distance. The innkeepers do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. They have so much knowledge of the area and it's nice to see people who still care about the town that they grew up in. The breakfasts were delicious and the presentation was over the top excellent. The rooms are the cleanest and most comfortable that I have ever stayed in. We will always stay with Angie and Jimmy when we are in St. Marys. We look forward to going back again and would recommend it to anyone. It is truly a gem.

Room Tip: Room 501's deck allows you to tuck up in to the magnolia trees that have been there for decades...
