Terrific Place!

Great place for staying in St Marys and an excellent stepping off point for Cumberland Island. The hostess was terrific, and breakfast was very tasty!

We got a very warm welcome as we were getting out of the car. Our room and all the communal rooms we saw were full of Victorian furniture. We were given pointers for places to visit on our short stay which was fun.

Relaxing weekend

I found this place on Google and I did not regret one moment of my stay. The house was warm, relaxing, and very comfortable in all aspects. Thanks to the staff for making me welcome and relaxed. Although I had to leave a day early I will be back some day for another stay.

A delightful stay.

We were welcomed at the gate as we got out of our car. From arrival to leaving we were made to feel at home. We stayed in the Gable and Lombard room which is beautifully furnished, as is the whole house.

We have stayed at the Goodbread House B&B on several occasions, and recently brought guests from the UK to stay there as well. The house, the themed rooms are all exceptional, a gift of love from the owner, who makes sure all guests are made to feel at home. Wine and home made cookies in the afternoon, and a breakfast that will take you thru past lunch is guaranteed, even those gluten free will gorge themselves on waffles!!!!!

Southern hospitality at its best!

Mardja is lovely hostess of a beautiful home. Beautiful verandas just outside the rooms and a breakfast that pleases the eye as well as the tastebuds!

Beautiful and comfortable!

We were impressed with the hospitality from the moment our innkeeper greeted us at the door. Our room was large, beautifully decorated, and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was not only delicious, but also a feast for the eyes: blueberry pancakes topped with fresh strawberries and a touch of whipped cream!

Highly recommend Goodbread House

Excellent accommodations in a beautiful home at an affordable rate. Mardja is a attentive and considerate host. Make the Goodbread House your home base for exploring Cumberland Island and the charms of beautiful St. Marys.

Wonderful on our 20th wedding anniversary!

In early June 2015 my wife and I stayed in the Scarlett and Rhett room with the Romance Package. Everything went as they planned it. It was perfect. The hosts made us feel like we lived there and that we had been friends forever. You have to try this deal. Room, Dinner Voucher, Ferry Passes and evening socials in the parlor. We're planning to go back ASAP! The Smith's

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so glad you and your wife had a lovely anniversary weekend. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Great Stay!

Enjoyed our stay in St.Marys and the folks at Goodbread House went Above and beyond all expectations to assist us with our visit to Cumberland Island, loaning us a backpack, arranging for a sack lunch at a nearby restaurant and picking it up for us, delivering us to the ferry office in their golf cart--outstanding service! And the afternoon brownies, wine, etc. we're excellent.
