Charm!!! Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Woodbine, GA to go alligator hunting and we chose this house due to the boat ramp only being 2 blocks away. We loved the charm of the house!! The screened in porch was peaceful. The yard was lovely. We walked down to the local BBQ place Captain Stan's. We took a day trip to Jekyll Island only 30 minute drive. The beds were very comfy! Nicely furnished!! Great Location and Home!!!

Beautiful Comfortable House IN Woodbine

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over for a long weekend and really enjoyed the place. The house older and really is well kept, very clean and all we could have asked for. The yard was also beautiful, plenty of space. We were looking for comfortable and we got it, the beds were real nice and the area was quiet even though it was a fairly busy weekend for Woodbine standards. It was convenient to 95. The owners were wonderful and always available if we had any questions. Looking forward to staying there again! Thanks!

Peace and quiet in a comfortable house close to the islands

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with family as a home base for visiting Cumberland Island. The house is beautiful and in a very quiet and nice neighborhood. We went for a walk from the house to the waterfront park and on part of the Coastal Trail and really enjoyed it. The location was very convenient to I-95 and getting to Saint Marys for the ferry. Everyone had a great time and were comfortable. The only negative was that the wifi internet never worked, but the owner was very helpful in trying to get it going for us. Not a deal breaker but our nephews sure missed it. The equipment is there for it but something just wasn't working. I'm confident the owners will get it fixed. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone!

Gowen House in Woodbine

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous house in the middle of Woodbine, just one block from the Satilla river. We had a great stay where we combined visits to the Okefenokee swamp and trips to the beach for one great spring break!

Quiet, Convenient, Homey

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoy the Woodbine area and coastal Georgia. We visit Woodbine two to three times a year and sometimes for a month at a time. We have always stayed at the Gowan house and really feel at home when we are in Woodbine. The Gowan house is conveniently located to the town of St. Mary's, Cumberland Island, Sapelo Island, and other historic areas. The owner is very accommodating and friendly. She replies to correspondence quickly and does everything she can to make our stay as pleasant as possible. This historic house is a true piece of Southern charm. If you stay in Woodbine, make sure to visit Captain Stan's Smokehouse which is only a couple blocks from the Gowan house.

Another Great Time at the Gowen House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the Gowen House the first quarter of 2014. This was our second stay at this charming home. We are birders/naturalists and there are many wildlife refuges within an hour's drive. Woodbine is small, but has a surprising amount of activities. All the amenities you could desire are within a half/hour's drive. AND the home is quaint and comfortable, and a great place to come home to after a day's adventures.
