St. Marys, the gateway to spectacular Cumberland Island, is a quaint, historic small town with spectacular scenary and friendly people.
From the dock of St. Marys’ Waterfront (1 block away), visitors board the Cumberland Ferry for camping or day trips to enjoy swimming, shelling, fishing, wild horses, loggerhead sea turtles and much more on 17 miles of pristine white sandy beaches.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Mike and Karen Schaaf reside in Savannah, Georgia.
Why the Owner Chose Saint Marys, GA, USA:
On a short weekend trip, we discovered St. Mary's and fell in love. The small town is quiet and picturesque with historic architecture, beautiful waterfront vistas, and the friendliest residents. You feel at home right away! One look at the Captain Morse House, and we knew we had to become its caretakers. We have spent the first six months painstakingly restoring it to it's former glory. We are very proud of it, and would like to share it with you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Captain Morse House is located in the heart of historic St. Mary's, and is the closest VRBO to the riverfront and Cumberland Ferry. Restaurants, shops, and the beautiful Howard Gilman Waterfront park are all short steps away (our dogs LOVE the park!) The Navy's Kingsland Submarine base is a ten-minute drive, great if you are active/retired military.
