Everything you would want in a bed and breakfast

5 on April 24, 2017

Everything you would want in a bed and breakfast. Charm, comfort, courteous and helpful staff, beautiful rooms and, of course, a great breakfast. Great, peaceful location. We parked our car Friday afternoon upon arrival and didn't get back in until Sunday afternoon. Boat to Cumberland Island, all restaurants and shops within a 10-minute walk. Historic cemetery five minute walk. You can have as much or as little interaction with other guests as you want. Even enjoyed a cigar on the outside porch. Not sure when we'll be back to St. Mary's, but wouldn't consider staying anywhere else!

An unexpected delight!

We hadn't planned on staying at the Spencer House but we noticed it when we were exploring the town. We stopped in and found they had a room on the first floor -perfect since an injury had me walking with a cane. A beautiful room and gracious staff and a nice, knowledgeable and friendly owner. It is immaculate!! The breakfast was sumptuous and the coffee especially good. We usually spend less on a night's lodging but this was worth every penny.


Exceeded Expectations. Great Value.

Exceptional service with a smile. Typically nice hot, cold, and healthy breakfast. Tesla & J1772 electric chargers a plus. Plenty of parking. Elevator. A very good value.


Visit to St Marys and Cumberland Island

We met friends for a visit to Cumberland Island. We stayed at Spencer House and it was a very good experience. Mary and Mike, innkeepers, and the staff Penny among others, could not have been more accommodating and friendly. A very good experience.

This was our first b&b experience and it was great! The Spencer House Inn is more than we expected. It is beautiful, it is amazingly clean and well appointed. The breakfast is fantastic and all of the staff, including the owners, are wonderful! I would not hesitate to stay here again and will recommend them with confidence. We stayed as a family with our teen. She loved it too!
