About Don Pierce-Owner/Jaune' Pierce-Inquiries/Administrator
We are Don Pierce and Linda Harris. We both retired to Saint Marys from Atlanta, GA where Don owns a high-end Antique business, now being run by his son, and Linda retired from a Commercial Real Estate brokerage firm. After seeing the 'Southern Living Magazine' article 'There's something about Saint Marys', in 2006, we both came South for a visit, loved what we saw and immediately purchased property for our home. Our home was built in 2007 and the rest is 'history' -- we feel in love with the town and people and it now 'feels like home'. Having our own home locally allows us to oversee the maintenance and rental of the property and to get to become personally acquainted with our guests!
Don Pierce-Owner/Jaune' Pierce-Inquiries/Administrator purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Don Pierce-Owner/Jaune' Pierce-Inquiries/Administrator chose St Marys
Saint Mary is our home and is such a special place, we love being able to share it with others and to provide visitors an opportunity to experience the Village and River front of Saint Marys!
What makes this Cottage unique
Saint Marys offers 'southern hospitality' at its best! 'The locals' are warm, inviting, and friendly and it is not uncommon for us to include guests in social gatherings. If you visit Saint Marys, you will also fall in love with it and that is exactly how many of our locals decided to make Saint Marys their home. A visiting friend told us 'I never thought I would want to leave Atlanta and my family and children, but I'm ready to call my boss and tell him I'm not coming back'!

Beautiful and Peaceful
My friend and I just spent five days in the cottage. It was exactly as described. We enjoyed the cottage, the landscape and the St. Marys Community. Mr. Pierce was attentive without being intrusive. The people we met in the restaurants and shops were very hospitable. I look forward to coming back.
Great place to stay

Perfect Sunrises Over The Marsh!
We took pics of sunrise every morning over the marsh right from back door of this beautiful cottage! We were so overtaken by the beauty of the river, town, and friendship of the townspeople and the homeowners at St. Mary's! We spent a whole week and did not want to leave! Perfect location if you want to take in the beauty of Saint Mary's, Cumberland Seashore Island, Jekyll Island, Amelia Island, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine! We will definitely return and take Don up on the tour of the town from his very own golf cart! Thanks so much for the beautiful stay at the cottage Don & Jaune'!
Had a great time
Loved the cottage, loved the town, loved everything about it. Don is a great host and a pleasure to deal with, to talk to, just to be around.
Property is exactly as listed
This property is exactly as listed. It is very clean, close to town, beautiful views of the St. Mary's river, and the owner was there is we needed him. We were able to park our small fishing boat at the property which was a bonus. This cottage is perfect for 2 or 3 people. The cottage was equipped with everything you need. Perfect getaway!
We appreciate your glowing review and we are happy to have guests park their boats on our property during their stay. Please come again, y'all were a delight!
Beautiful, quaint, historical town, cottage, scenery, food we're AWESOME 😍
Would do it again last loved it, just what we needed, peaceful and quiet.
The quaint town with our friendly 'locals', is steeped in history and is the second oldest city in America. It is 'The Gateway' to Cumberland Island, a US National Seashore park notably known as the wedding site of John F. Kennedy, Jr.'s wedding location, and for its Wild Horses that roam the Island. Ferries leave/return twice daily from the water front in Saint Marys. The waterways of Saint Marys offer great boating, canoeing, and fishing and we have no traffic lights or traffic jams!
Saint Marys is centrally located between Savannah, GA (90 Miles to our North) and Jacksonville, FL (20 miles south), and the oldest city in the US, Saint Augustine, FL (81 miles south) as well as all the coastal cities along the I-95 corridor from Tybee Island, Sea Island, St. Simons Island, and Jekyll Island, GA to our north; to Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Jacksonville Beach, Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach, FL south. Orlando, FL, home to Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studio Theme parks, is also an easy 3 hour drive from Saint Marys!
Saint Marys is host to several festivals and events throughout the year including our Rock Shrimp Festival; Hay Days with Town Scarecrow Stroll and 'Ghost Story Tours'; Christmas white Lighting, Merchants Open House and Tour of Homes; Mardi Gras Festival and Ball, and was a featured city in 'Lovetown USA' series, aired on OWN - Oprah Winfrey Network.
