Only in St Marys can you settle in on a swing along the river front as the sunset dips into the state’s southern-most boundary, take in an evening concert under the stars, drink a cold beverage at one of several nearby cafes or eat just-caught sweet Georgia shrimp, all within walking distance of home. Locals scoot by and wave from bikes and golf-carts, kids play near the fountain and everybody wakes up for morning coffee at the shops along Osborne St. Life moves at an old-fashioned pace and with a vanishing grace that you swore no longer existed.
Here you will find true southern small-town hospitality combined with the allure of wild coastlines, pristine salt marsh and long, sunny days.

About the town:
St. Marys is a city with roots as far back as the 1500's. It is the 2nd oldest city in America (after St. Augustine, FL ).
During Summer, everyone will love the nearby Aquatic Park, just 1.3 miles from the cottage! A zero depth entry water playground with sprinklers, water cannons, slides, and a million other ways to get wet! A huge bucket dumps 300 gallons of water on those below every 5 minutes. Take a ride on the Orange Crush Enclosed-Twister Slide--you're down in 5 seconds! The four lane lap pool is attached to the slide catch pool. (There is always one lap lane available to lap swimmers.) Water depth goes from 3 to 5 feet. The lazy river is 500 feet long and winds around the back side of the park. Tubes and life jackets are available for use. Chairs and umbrellas are in the middle of the island.
