Spencer House Inn Bed and Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Spencer House for three nights July 26-28 2013. Our room was 302. Everything was exceptionally clean, housekeeping very thorough each day we were there. Upon arrival we were given a tour of the building and upgraded to a queen bed room after looking at the double bed room. In 1872 this building was constructed as a hotel. An elevator was added during one of the upgrades. Breakfast was well prepared and diverse each morning with homemade breads and jams. The staff was very friendly and prepared our lunch to take to Cumberland Island National Seashore on Sunday 7-28. Spencer House exceeded all of our expectations and made our 35 anniversary very special.

Room Tip: Get a room with a bed similar in size to what you are accoustomed.

We spent two nights at The Spencer House and it was fabulous. Mary took care of us even before we checked in. She asked if we were visiting Cumberland Island and we arranged a prepared lunch; which was very good. When we arrived, we had a tour and checked into a beautiful room. Everyone here is extremely nice and the accommodations and food are wonderful!!!

My girl friend and I spent one night at Spencer to celebrate her birthday. We arrived early in order to due the early excursion to Cumberland Island. We were greeted warmly, was taken on a brief tour in order to familiarize us with the accommodations and pleasantly sent on our way with a prepared lunch for the trip. We returned after check in and felt as though we arrived home. The Inn is decorated with antiques, every room having their own unique character. Our room was beautifully decorated and we were able to enjoy a few movies from the Inns collection of dvds. All in all, Mary, Mike and the entire staff made our visit memorable and I highly recommend that you visit asap.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Mary Neff and her staff at Spencer House. The room was quite and I slept better there both nights than I do in most traditional hotels when on the road. Their breakfast selection was delicious and if you are there for the French Toast, don't pass it up or their homemade granola for the fruit and yogurt. Walking distance to several restaurants and shops. I am certainly looking forward to my next visit with them whether for business or personal pleasure.

Spencer House was perfect. We stayed 2 nights and loved it. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. The emails to check on us and if we needed anything else for our stay was wonderful and thoughtful too. We enjoyed our visit to Cumberland Island and thank our host at Spencer House for the wonderful lunch and tips about taking the walking tour. It made the visit to the island more enjoyable. Would love to visit again.

We were traveling back home from a bustling 4th of July week in the Outer Banks of NC, spent with family, to our home in Gainesville FL. We took a chance and called the Spencer House from the road in SC...Lucky us, they had a vacancy! When we told them that we were traveling with 2 surfboards that would need to be secured...No problem! We arrived after spending almost 12 hours on the road. Mary greeted us and gave us a quick tour of the immaculate and beautiful house. Then she got us and the surfboards comfortably situated. We were given recommendations for dinner and decided to try the Riverside Café. We asked if we needed to change from our shorts and t-shirts and we were assured that we did not need to worry, everything was very casual. YEA! After a delicious meal of Greek food we used the complementary voucher that Mary gave us and visited the charming Blue Goose for a glass of wine and a beer. After a good nights sleep (room temp could have been a bit cooler) we had a wonderful breakfast courtesy of Mike.We headed home and plan to go back at some point to visit Cumberland Island.

We spent two nights at the Spencer House over the 4th of July holiday. The best description of our stay might be "comfortable" and "welcoming". The hosts are personable, friendly and professional. Watching the fireworks from the front porch was amazing for us and our families. Mike made homemade ice cream in the afternoon and Mary has the scoop on all the local activities and restaurants. Our granddaughters loved the house & rooms and were doted on by Mike & Mary. It was a most enjoyable and relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of the house tend to get some street noise, but they are convenient to the large...
