The owners are a family of 5 from Atlanta, GA that loves to slip away from the busyness of the city to the tranquility and beauty of the Coast. We do this as a family to enjoy the abundance of outside activities and also as a couple simply for 'us' time and to enjoy the romantic side of the island. Jimmy & Carla
Yvonne Riner purchased this cottage in 2012
We love nature, horses and the simple things in life. We fell in love with this quaint Cottage and named it 'The Sweet Spot' because that's exactly what it is. Its steps and minutes away to coastal treasures and the beauty of Cumberland Island where horses run free!
Location - location - location. To the waterfront, to the Cumberland Island Ferry, to the children's park and to great local restaurants and cafes.
We enjoyed our stay emensally, even though we had a plumping problem the first day, which were resolved with 1 phone call to Tiffany. It was smooth sailing after that. We also greatly enjoyed the hot tub it was a great option at the end of the day to have very relaxing and made sleeping much more relaxing. The cottage was small but nice conviently payed out, we had no problem finding everything we needed as we did utilize the kitchen as we like to cook. We. Saw much of the area from comber land island and many other places of interest within 50-60 miles the people are great in Ga. Great rest errands check out Langs seafood marvelous hope
To get back there again.
My husband and I spent a wonderful week in st. Marys and the Sweet Spot was our home away from home. Very clean and welcoming cottage, right across the street from the Cumberland Ferry, nice restaurants and stores in the historic part of this charming and peaceful old town. We loved riding the bikes in the evenings too. Thank you so much for your hospitality and easy communication! We can't wait to be back.
We had a wonderful weekend at this house. The house is adorable and comfortable and charming. It is so close to the river park and ferry. The town is so cute and I recommend this space for anyone who is looking for a weekend away.
This cute 2 bedroom bungalow is convenient to the Cumberland Island ferry and downtown St. Marys. The property is well maintained although the outdoor Spa was not functional on both of my stays in 2016. I lifted the cover to see some frogs inside it. The master bed was very comfortable, I did not try the bunk bed in the other bedroom. The best restaurant in the area is the Riverside Cafe. I also tried Lang's and Seagles, both were mediocre at best. Check in time is very late at 4pm, All of the other place's(6) that I have previously rented had a 3pm check in time. This can be a problem since travel is an inexact science. Both the house cleaner(who is not the most friendly person) and the property manager need to be sensitive to the fact that people might be traveling long distances! Charging $100 cleaning fee is excessive for an hour's worth of work. None of the other properties charged any cleaning fee.
House was very cute. Very clean. Great location. Just a few minute walk to the Cumberland Island Ferry, boat docks, and park. There are some great restaurants and cute little shops located within walking distance as well. Perfect home for a family vacation. The beaches on Cumberland Island were beautiful, just be sure to pack lightly! Fenandina Beach is just a 30 minute drive as well. We had a wonderful time! Will be visiting again very soon. Thank you!
We will be back.
TV acting up but there were storms all around so a lot of interference.
You can see the water from our front porch. And we’re just steps away from the Marina, and The Cumberland Queen Ferry which is the exclusive gateway to Cumberland Island. this means activities abound for the whole family. Whether its shelling, crabbing, swimming, nature hiking or just chilin' it's nearby. And when your at the cottage - the kids can simply walk across the street to a park to play. Or if they want a waterpark - its just a short drive away.
