The McKinnon House

1001 Egmont Street , Brunswick, GA 31520 USA (Show map)


The McKinnon House is the perfect place to savor the bed and breakfast experience. Surrounded by family heirlooms and splendid period furniture, visitors can indulge in the graciousness of a by-gone era and the charm of Southern hospitality. Situated in the heart of historic Old Town Brunswick, the Victorian house was completed in 1902 as the residence of lumber magnate L.T. McKinnon and since 1993 has been the home of the innkeeper, Jo Miller. Seventeen Corinthian columns define the exterior of this turn-of-the-century home. Made of Georgia cypress, the columns grace front and side porches hung with ferns and lined with comfortable rocking chairs and wicker swings. Inside, a lovely handcrafted staircase dominates the reception hall. This staircase is made of Tennessee white ash, as is the intricate woodwork on the walls and ceilings throughout the house. To the left and right are the sitting room, parlor, and dining room, each furnished with museum quality pieces from Charleston and New Orleans. Individually designed mantelpieces surround each of the nine working fireplaces in the house. Although each is unique, most retain the column motif begun with the exterior columns. Preserved with loving respect for architectural integrity, the house is replete with special details that bring to life the Victorian age. Converted gas light fixtures, original oak and pine floors, gleaming brass and silver, fresh flowers, and candlelit rooms at twilight all create an elegant and authentic setting.

Beautiful Location for Ending our Trip

3.2 on May 12, 2011

The glass of wine and warm greeting of Innkeepers Jo and Paul Miller was a welcome ending to our days drive. The decor and room was outstanding. The McKinnon House is a gem in the out-of-the-way treats Brunswick has in store for folks who like to take the roads less traveled.
