We have been spending the Thanksgiving season at Greyfield Inn for most of the last decade. It is remarkable that the owners, descendants of Thomas Carnegie, continue to put such mammoth efforts into opening their historic family mansion to guests. Except for respecting the history, staff, chefs and family by dressing up a bit for dinner, it is a totally... More

This had been on the bucket list for years. It's a restricted access island off the Georgia coast. There are a few primitive campgrounds, a few family homes, the ruins of Dungeness, a majestic Carnegie mansion, Plum Orchard mansion and the Greyfield Inn. Greyfield mansion was a home built by one of the Carnegie offspring and exists today as a... More

We enjoyed our stay here immensely. Although it's very pricey, getting away from constant communications (especially during election season), enjoying an empty beach, and making friends during the suppers and trips together made it worthwhile. The inn has a gracious and timeworn sensibility about it. The staff are very attentive and accommodating. We especially enjoyed kayaking and a couple of... More

We just spent 2 nights and 3 days at the Greyfield Inn celebrating a significant birthday. What a treat. We truly felt like we were transported and in another world of relaxing days and evenings. All of the staff are wonderful and very interested in the guests' enjoyment. Special call outs to Christina, our naturalist guide, Zella, our versatile guide,... More

The Greyfield Inn is likely the most unique beach resort property you will ever visit. Three generations of our family just spent 4 days there (a return visit for most of us), and everybody loved it - biking on the beach, looking for fossilized shark teeth, 15 miles of natural seashore, fishing, eating GREAT food - IOW, something for everybody....

truly unbelievable with 3 meals and including a picnic lunch daily. however some of the furniture should be updated - actually refurbished, the furniture may be original but it needs to be recushioned and redone. meals were with everyone together with meeting others from across the USA with many having been there in the past and wanting to return

This intimate Inn tucked away on beautiful Cumberland Island is quite a jewel. The staff and service is impeccable from the moment you arrive at the ferry dock until you return at the end of your stay. If you book a room here may I suggest one of the two rooms on the top floor or in a cottage. The... More

It's taken me a couple of months to write this for couple of reasons. My husband and I love remote off the beaten path places and this lovely island certainly fit the bill.

Thank you for writing your thoughtful review of your stay here last July.

This was our second time visiting the Greyfield Inn, the first time being our honeymoon and the second our fifth wedding anniversary. Going to the Greyfield is like stepping back in time.
