  • Lovely weekend in February..

    The property around Greyfield is truly beautiful and you will start to relax as you step off of the Ferry...My husband and I stayed in the Little Cabin which was very nice..My suitcase was misplaced but Mary quickly located it and brought it to me...Housekeeping took the used towels and washcloths after our first night but never brought us any fresh ones. I ended up using one of the beach towels that they had in a basket in the living room. Dinner is served at 7:30 and lasts until around 9:15..There is only one choice for the entr?e which was fish over pureed broccoli that neither of us cared for...I think offering an alternate entr?e would be nice...The tours are informative and you ride in the back of a pickup truck..I was unable to to do this having had a recent hip replacement so I rode inside the truck..If you have mobility issues it is difficult climbing in and out of the truck...Also if you are in the back of the truck you have to duck to avoid getting hit by branches...I think they could improve on the tour transportation...Overall it was a nice experience, the beauty of the place is so peaceful and calming..

    What a fantastic experience! Enjoyed every minute. They truly strive to make your visit comfortable and fun. Excellent food (except the coffee) and the family style seating was much more enjoyable than anticipated. The packed lunches were fun, so many spots to wander to for a picnic, or inside if the weather did not cooperate. The pre-planned activities were delightful! Recommend that you do not kiss them. Something for everyone. Or it is just as easy and comfortable to sit and read or "vegetate". Hope to return again and again.

    My family had another wonderful Thanksgiving at Greyfield Inn, the old Carnegie Mansion turned into a beautiful inn. It is by far the most extravagant travel experience we have and I start saving up for our Thanksgiving vacation in January. It always seems like it is worth every penny. Each visit is memorable and my family from 20 to 60 years all love it. This year I used a Greyfield kayak and paddled up to Plum Orchard, the other old Carnegie Mansion on the island. The Greyfield experts helped me plan my trip, following the tides through the inland waterway past huge sea fowl, rolling dolphins and oyster beds. Other days we biked for miles on the hard packed beach at low tides and took trail hikes past grazing wild horses. The huge private garden run by friendly gardeners services the inn's diners. The gardeners take the time to share their knowledge with visitors. Bikes were in good shape and the rides were amazing. The food prepared by Chef Whitney of TV show Top Chef were sensational. More private baths have been added to Greyfield making it even more desirable. Its kind of fun after a full days of nature walks and tours and biking and kayaking, to dress up and pretend you are a Carnegie in their old dining room by a roaring fireplace... and during the day, if you don't want to expend energy, the porch swings are big enough to support a whole family's nap - mine did just that one day! In the end, it's the staff that makes this place. Mr and Mrs Ferguson, Carnegie heirs but salt of the earth folks make this happen every single day. It's unreal how they find beautiful young staffers who are so nice and helpful to guests. Does Tripadvisor offer 6 stars? Greyfield is off the charts. Make a reservation today for a year away, and start saving for it after Christmas like me! It's worth it.

  • Amazing magical experience

    Staying at Greyfield Inn is like staying at an English country house at the turn of the century. Beautiful house full of antiques, incredibly helpful and gracious staff, kudos to Lana, Jason, Alex and the incomparable Christopher. Apologies to all the wonderful people whose names I didn't catch. Delicious food, actually delicious doesn't cover it, divine. Incredible excursions through the other worldly Cumberland Island. Lovely naps on the front porch.
    Yes, the bathrooms are not shiny and modern but they're charming, clean and perfectly functional. I am mystified by any criticism of Greyfield. It was torture leaving this morning. Cannot wait to return! If you're reading this do not hesitate to go! Go now!

    Great spot for retired couples looking to relax and connect with nature. This is a historical, well preserved, private piece of heaven. The rooms are pretty (but FYI the beds not very comfortable) and the staff is phenomenal, specially Christopher.
