This was me and my husband's first bed and breakfast experience and it was amazing! Mardja is the one of the sweetest and most friendly women I've ever met! The room was clean and cozy, decorated very nicely with antiques and movie star loves. Carol was a wonderful host as well. We met the housekeeper, Tammy and she was very nice too. Breakfast was delicious- griddle cakes with fresh fruit on top and sausage on the side the first morning and a nice sausage omelet with fresh fruit and nice warm piece of breakfast cinnamon cake! They were all very hospitable and we felt comfortable and at home our entire stay! Definitely our home away from home in beautiful St. Marys. Thank you Mardja, Carol, Tammy and all the wonderful people we met during our stay!

Nice People, nice place

We chose the first floor Rhett & Scarlett Suite. Fantastic large and comfortable. Location of Inn is within few minutes walking distance from downtown (one very small town town) and includes all the restaurants and Cumberland Island Ferry dock. Accomodations were fabulous and relaxing. Don't hesitate to book a room at this B&B, just make sure you spend at least 2 nights in this old Southern town full of great locals. We shall return!!!

Great Experience

Our first visit to St Mary's GA was a great experience. The area is absolutely charming. The inn was beautiful and well maintained. Our hostess, Marja, made us feel so welcome. Tom was a wealth of knowledge and told us so much about the history of the area. We met some of the nicest people during our stay and really enjoyed getting to know them Our room was even more beautiful the pictures. The bathroom was very large and had a fireplace. All of the food was homemade whether it was dessert cakes or the delicious breakfast with an incredible blueberry loaf. We will definitely stay there again!

Great B&B

Lovely Place to Stay

We stayed in the Rhett and Scarlett room for five wonderful nights. The room was clean,spacious,and comfortable. If you are a Gone With The Wind fan you will love it. Our hostess, Marja, was warm,friendly, and made us feel right at home. Her breakfast was to die for, especially her “traditional” pancakes. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic retreat head for The Goodbread House in St Mary’s. Thank you Marja, for your hospitality. Joan & Charles

My husband and I VERY much enjoyed our stay there! It was quiet and cozy. Mardja and staff were very accommodating and lovely. Breakfast was scrumptious. We enjoyed playing board games, drinking wine and eating strawberries (bought from the market across the street) on the veranda while enjoying the springtime breeze. It was such a pleasant stay, that we plan on doing a family vacation in the near future for a week there. We will definitely be back, even if just to stay at this place......we loved it that much! :) The Hoyt's
