We had a great experience staying at Emma's. The location is very convenient to everything in the historic district of St. Mary's and if you're going out to Cumberland Island you can walk to the ferry in just a few minutes. This is a beautiful house with plenty of public spaces and also very comfortable private rooms. The staff at...

Emma's Bed and Breakfast is a lovely, spacious, and well-run B&B. The location is quiet, but very close to downtown St. Marys (note - no apostrophe, when Web-searching) with some restaurants and the ferry to Cumberland Island National Seashore. Okenfenokee National Wildlife Refuge is an hour away. Angie and Jimmy keep a well-stocked bird feeder, so there is good birdwatching...

We enjoyed our stay at Emma's. The room was beautiful and clean. It was close to downtown and the docks. We loved the swings at the park by the docks. Just a quiet little getaway. Breakfast was great and served with style. We would definitely return when in the area.

We stayed at Emma's BnB on the way to south Florida. It's about 15 min off I-95 so very convenient. Angie and her hubby do a great job of welcoming you and heading you in the right direction for dining. Unfortunately we didn't get to see much of the town, but it is convenient to Cumberland island and Amelia island....

This was a short trip to the coast to go biking at Crooked River State Park and exploring Cumberland Island for the day. I was traveling with my 10 yr old. We got in around 4ish on a Sunday afternoon. Jimmy the proprietor was there to show us around. We didn't stay in the 'big house' but out back in...

We recently stayed there for our honeymoon in room 501. The room was very clean and had a huge balcony/deck for us to enjoy the outside! The owners knew it was our honeymoon and even though we were a little late to breakfast they treated us no differently. We were greeted with smiles and the best breakfast I've ever had!...

This was our second visit to Emma's. We throughly enjoyed the town of St. Marys. The town's historic charm is well matched with the Bed and Breakfast's beautiful setting and rooms. We had the perfect hosts, Angie and Jimmy to give us their own history of the city. Both were incredibly knowledgable of all of the towns happenings. They made...

Stayed at Emma's as part of a wedding weekend- it was tranquil amidst the busyness of the weekend! Angie, Jimmy and Ansley made the weekend extra special with their hospitality. The bridal party took many of their photos at the B&B and I have no doubts that they will be beautiful! The front steps would be a gorgeous place to...

Our recent stay at Emma's B&B was filled with warmth and southern hospitality. Our hosts were welcoming and gracious, and made us feel at home. Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfasts were delicious as well as beautiful. The house and many antiques are lovely.

Staying at Emma's B&B while in the St. Mary's area enriches a visit to this quaint and friendly town. The beautiful rooms on the main floor provide pleasure to the eye and comfort for the body. I especially enjoyed the library for reading and the parlor of conversing with the knowledgable Innkeepers, who provide historical tidbits about the property and...
