I just returned home after three wonderful nights at Emma's, I stayed in room 402 in the cottage rooms and it was perfect. I had my seven month old with me and it was a dream to be able to put him down for naps and go into the main house and enjoy the company if Angie and Jimmy who are wonderful hosts. The beds are amazing and make you want to sleep in forever which is possible with my room being so quiet, one of my chief complaints at hotels, but not here. The coffee was waiting each early morning and they are so accommodating I will be sure to return again and again.

Upon entering this magical home, you are enveloped in the wonderful warmth and gracious hospitality of Angie and Jimmy. This beautiful Bed and Breakfast provided more than a bountiful breakfast; the proprietors invited us to share their magnificent home. They are more than welcoming and the attention to detail in every aspect of the decor and displays was breath-taking. We felt as if we had entered a "Castle" and I was the "Princess" for a day. Every luxury imaginable was provided; from the pristine room accommodations to the immaculate bathing area. The scents perfuming their museum-quality home were so enticing and filled us with happy memories of candles/fragrances shared and enjoyed in our past. The beautiful prints of the draperies and the fabrics throughout their gorgeous, fabulous home reminded us of the designs we had seen in the amazing rooms of the Carnegie mansion at Plum Orchard on Cumberland Island. We were so blessed to have found such a kind and caring couple to spend such an extremely memorable stay with as we were celebrating our re-newal of our wedding vows and my husband's birthday!!!! We truly cannot possibly thank them enough for giving us some more incredible memories to cherish. If you would like to experience such a fantastic stay; we give Emma's Bed and Breakfast the highest accolades available and encourage you to enjoy all the amenities available at their wonderful abode!! Many thanks, Adrienne and Bryan

This place is right out of Southern Living. Immaculately decorated. Pillow top beds--so comfortable, breakfasts gourmet. Angie and Jimmy are like old friends without being nosey. Hospitality at its Southern best. The perfect place for us. Stanley and Anita

On our 10th year anniversary, we stayed at Emma's Bed and Breakfast in St. Mary's, and we highly recommend it. Upon arrival, the Innkeeper's hospitality made us feel welcome and at home. The house was beautifully decorated, and the room was very relaxing after a day at Cumberland Island and the beach. There was also enough room for our 7 month baby girl to sleep very comfortably. Flowering bushes, such as roses and hibiscus, and large oaks and palm trees surround the property creating beautiful scenery. The breakfast served each morning was amazingly delicious. From Emma's, we enjoyed walking to the River and eating at the restaurants down town. If you're wondering where to stay, take our advice and choose Emma's Bed and Breakfast. -Eric & Malissa

My family and a few other families stayed at Emma's last weekend, and we were very impressed. The house felt warm and inviting (actually comfortably cool on a warm weekend!) as soon as we walked in. From Angie's hospitality to the comfortable rooms, from the gardens outside to the abundance of curios and nick-hacks inside, and from Jimmy's help to the good food that was available, our stay felt too short! I would love to go back.

We stayed in our first B&B at Emmas for a couple of nights during our recent visit to St. Mary's and Cumberland Island. Angie and Jimmy were wonderful hosts. The food was delicious, the rooms quite large, and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. Located near the waterfront, it's a great place from which to bike around the town.

Angie and family show true hospitality. The property is beautiful inside and outside! Breakfast was delicious. Great place to visit and enjoy St. Marys, Cumberland Island, and local restaurants. The Market in town has all that you may want for a day trip to the island - plus much more. This was one of the nicest B&B's we've stayed in over the years. The owners are wonderful people! Thanks for sharing your home and allowing us to visit with you!

So quaint, peaceful & lovely. I would stay there again & again. A delightful get away for peace & quiet. The presentation of breakfast was impressive & rocking on the front porch looking over the nicely kept grounds was a favorite.

My wife and I stayed at Emma's for a couple of nights and could not have had a better experience. Angie and Jimmy were like old friends. The room was great and the food was delicious! What more could you ask for?

We recently stayed at Emmas- 19 or us! and had a wonderful experience. We visited several of the other B&B's in St. Mary's before choosing Emmas. From the beautiful grounds to the details in the house, everything is excellent! The owners are extremely attentive to their guests. We felt as if we were welcome guests in a friend's home. It is close to everything, has great parking and yet you can't hear all the music and loud noises that were evident in the other B&B's closer to the restaurant and bar area of St. Mary's. I highly recommend this B&B.

Angie and Jimmy Mock
Angie was born and raised in St. Marys. Jimmy moved to St. Marys 21 years ago. Angie loves decorating & entertaining. Jimmy loves working in the gardens, the goldfish pond and their new koi pond. (Many of the koi are celebrating 10 years with the couple.) Purchasing a bed and breakfast just seemed to be the perfect choice to share their love of St. Marys and the historic district.
