Car: Recommended

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.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: 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

Why Saint Marys, GA, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location - location - location. To the waterfront, to the Cumberland Island Ferry, to the children's park and to great local restaurants and cafes.
