The Cottage on Norris, Unit 'A' is our second VRBO property in St Marys. You will find our first St. Marys rental property listed in VRBO (Listing #460117) as 'The Green House Cottage'...a few blocks from this property. This unit, what we call Unit 'A' is the front unit of this 2-unit property. The Cottages on Norris have been updated affording our guests with a clean and well equipped vacation rental. We are always committed to providing a tastefully decorated 'home away from home' for our valued guests.

The Cottage on Norris, Unit 'A' is in the Historic District of St. Marys and only a few blocks from the centerpiece of St. Marys, the Gilman Waterfront Park just next to the National Park Service office where you board the ferry to venture to beautiful Cumberland Island. We suggest you visit:

to become familiar with our beautiful island and to make reservations for the ferry ride to the island.

Indeed, VRBO Reviews are Very Important!!!

Tom & Beverly Cyphers are seasoned VRBO property owners with what we feel is a very responsible and favorable track record supported by many 5 star traveler reviews. Before you consider booking the Cottage on Norris we encourage you to visit our other VRBO properties - listing numbers 460117 and 411610 - and read the reviews. We think the reviews speak volumes of our efforts to be great hosts for our wonderful guests. We pride ourselves is being very clear as to the size, condition and amenities you will find when you arrive. The photos introduce you to both the interior and exterior of this, Unit 'B', property. My wife is a photographer and used her wide-angle lens to take the photos of the property. Using the wide-angle lens affords the opportunity to give you great pictures of the cottage. But, the lens coupled with our use of mirrors in the cottage would lead the viewer of the cottage to believe that the cottage is larger than it actually is. Simply put, the cottage is a very comfortable and cozy 640 square foot unit.

We know that cleanliness is extremely important to folks renting VRBO properties. Like our other VRBO properties, we place as a number one priority that you will find this unit to meet our rigid standards. Finally, a VRBO is in effect a home. Accordingly, our VRBO units are well stocked with just about every thing you will need to make the unit 'your home away from home' throughout your stay.

What makes this cottage unique

We think that one of the unique benefits is the large private gated courtyard. Simply, a place for you to relax and a safe and secure place if you have a four-legged friend that will be joining you.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, and in a nice quiet neighborhood not far from the ferry to Cumberland Island. Working with the owner was easy and very pleasant! Would definitely stay here again!

Cozy little cottage and very dog friendly

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and had everything you need from electronics, kitchen supplies, bicycles (including helmets), old towels for the dogs, and even an umbrella in case you forgot yours (which I did). The neighborhood is great and the owner was very accommodating with check-in and check-out times. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the twin beds. Both of those beds had really noisy/squeaky box springs and the mattresses were not the best (but not awful). As inexpensive as twin mattress sets are nowadays, it might be a good investment for the property. Overall though, it was a great place to stay and you could tell the owners tried hard to make it nice and very dog friendly.

Everything is provided and it is clean and well maintained. It is a block from downtown restaurants and bars and the ferry to Cumberland Island. I highly recommend this place for a get away. Owner is awesome and provided us with all the information we needed. Try it out. You will not be disappointed.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit a lot. It's a nice quiet town with a lot of history. The cottage is on a quiet street and had everything we needed while there.

We rode the bicycles a lot and love the patio.
