This was our first time visiting St. Mary’s and/or staying at Emma’s Cottage House. We are ultimately headed to island camp at Cumberland Island. After being in a car for more than 6 hours, Angie knew we needed some much needed outdoor activity wherein she immediately recommended a bike ride to explore both the coastal town and lunch options. We...

I had wanted to go to Cumberland Island for an early birthday celebration and hopped on Google to find a bed and breakfast. Emma's was the better price, and I couldn't imagine a better experience. Jimmy is very helpful and makes you feel at home. We stayed in 403 and everything was great. They have a community room with a...

We were greeted by Angie, the proprietor upon our arrival. Our room was ready and beautifully decorated . Since there were no other guests on this evening, we were offered an upgrade. In room Keurigs and a variety of breakfast choices made for a very nice stay. It was just too cold to enjoy the town and the lovely outdoor...

We spontaneously decided to get away for the weekend and visit St. Mary's. We found Emma's and made a last minute reservation. The room was comfortable and clean. The large king was perfect for sleeping. Emma's is located on some beautiful property only a few minutes from downtown. They even provide bikes if you prefer not to drive. The breakfast...

We called at the last minute and suprisingly got the nicest room. We weren't sure what to expect when comparing prices with other B&B and Emma's was the cheapest but we were very pleased with the our room and the owners, Angie & Jimmy couldn't be nicer. We didn't mind that breakfast weren't the typical B&B style as there were...

Saint Mary's and Cumberland island are wonderful places to visit. If you like quaint historical places, you will love them. Emma's is the place to stay in saint Mary's. The rooms are clean and spacious, the owners are friendly and make you feel like family, and you are only a very short walk to downtown saint Mary's and the beautiful...

Stayed in Room 401 again and so impressed with the changes. The red heart shaped "honeymoon" jacuzzi was nice but loved the full bath, mini refrigerator, microwave and especially the Keurig coffeemaker even more! Just wish we could have stayed longer. As always the hospitality was excellent. What a special place! Look forward to our next visit!

Emma`s Cottage House is a wonderful place to stay! I was planning a wedding in St. Marys and needed to find out of town guests a place to stay.

Found this charming B&B on TripAdvisor and we stayed for 2 nights while we visited Cumberland Island. I've lived in Florida my whole life so this place has the vintage coastal feel I love so much. Our room had painted beadboard on the walls which reminded me of the awesome little fishing cottages my family used to rent when I...

We were excited to stay at Emma's Cottage House after reading reviews and seeing pictures online and even upon driving up to the location. The stay after that turned mediocre at best. We knocked on the front door of the main house and were greeted by the innkeeper's daughter (with a screaming baby in the background) who searched for our...
