Property description

We are a pet friendly bed and breakfast perfect for couples, families, corporate groups, and social groups. Your stay at The Goodbread House will take you back to a gentler, kinder time.

The Goodbread House is a historic home that contains 6 rooms each with its own private bath. This listing is for a whole house rental meaning you are renting all 6 rooms. (if the whole house is not rented on your requested dates you can rent a single room nightly or weekly, call for rates and availability).

The Goodbread House sits just two blocks from St. Marys’ enchanting waterfront where you can take the ferry to Cumberland Island National Seashore or set sail for a romantic sunset cruise, drop a fishing line, go kayaking, or simply languish in our award-winning park. This is the town where romance lives and adventure awaits. White picket fences join stately magnolias in a seductive symphony of the Old South. Yesteryear beckons here at the Goodbread House, and memory making rules the day. We are a pet friendly bed and breakfast. We have golf carts available for rent. You can go golfing, kayaking, walking, hiking, and so much more in this area. Antique shops are located in the downtown district.
She has made her home your home in a way that has her guests saying, “That’s the best night’s sleep I’ve had in years.” The Goodbread House's envied history of repeat visitors bears out her successful track record of doing so. Whether you’re coming for a few nights, a week, a month, or longer, your stay at the Goodbread House is all about comfort and charm.
Romance flourishes in the gracious rooms of the Goodbread House so, fittingly, rooms are named after famous lovers. If reserving for a group, you can give your guests their choice of Rhett & Scarlett, Gable & Lombard, Gabriel & Evangeline, Bogie & Bacall, Guinevere & Lancelot, or Ricky & Lucy. The entire house is as inviting as your grandma’s arms with a full-service kitchen, dining room, and a relaxing parlour filled with furnishings from a bygone era—the best of both worlds: nostalgic charm and contemporary conveniences.
Here’s what past guests say about their stay at the Goodbread House:
''Slept so peacefully. A wonderful place to escape.”
'We truly enjoyed the tranquility and gentle spirit of the Goodbread House.'
“We are very impressed with the interiors of your house. It is beautifully preserved and so comfortable.”
“How good it feels to take leave from Atlanta sprawl to discover this place of enchanting beauty. We are already planning our return.”
“What a great getaway.  And so romantic!”
“Peaceful and rejuvenating!”
Whether you’re looking for a vacation that maximizes relaxation and romance, or you’re more adventurous and want to fill your time with kayak excursions, beach jaunts, or swamp exploration, the Goodbread House is the perfect beginning to a perfect vacation or group gathering.
