  • Stunning place to be and stay

    by thedanmetzler on 2019-04-13 06:40 am

    Went with a group of 14 friends for my 70th. Staff were on top of all things while making it look effortless and elegant with a touch of professional warmth.
    You are staying in an island wonderland of natural beauty while living in a historic house. The inn includes many low key tours of this historic, undeveloped paradise. A few historic houses, amazing nature tours by truck or feet as well as the inn itself. Just sitting there brings peace to your soul. Eating there bring a smile to your face.
    Everyone of our group left feeling fresh and wonderful. This is an experience you must have during your lifetime.
    Costly, yes. Well worth it indeed.

  • Treasure

    by VT71innkeeper on 2019-03-17 02:17 pm

    In addition to the qualities noted by other reviewers, there are treasures throughout the main house: a priceless Tiffany lamp here, a block of amber there, bronzes and well-worn antiques throughout. Miraculously, there is always the current issue of The New Yorker. Staying here is elevating, like being a friend of the Carnegie family.

  • A true experience

    After a relaxing 40 minute boat ride we arriver Cumberland island and the Greyfield Inn. This is much more than Inn. Both individual cottages as well as rooms in the inn. Grounds and national park are made for exploring, hiking an provided bicycling. Food is included in price and it is 5 Star. Basket lunch is provide to support your fishing, kayaking, hiking or just relaxing on the beach or your lodging. This is an experience not tobe missed.

  • Cancellation policy

    Make sure you do not have any possibility of any reason to cancellation your reservation after 30 days. My sister was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital less than a week before iI was supposed to be at the Inn. She was in the intensive care unit and passed away. I tried to change the reservation for a future date or even cancel, but they were unwilling to make any exception. I lost the entire deposit.

  • An experience

    The Greyfield is an older hotel from a bygone era. Much of the furniture, decor, and fixtures are authentic/original to the Carnegie family home. We loved the experience of staying in a classic home, the food was delicious and top notch, the beds & bed linens were wonderfully luxurious (the towels not so much), and mostly the service was impeccable. We did have one service snafu: our room was never serviced or made up on our last full day (until it was tidied up when the normal turn-down service occurred)...not sure what happened...and we did not bring to the attention of anybody...BUT should not happen for the price of this hotel. You should know that this hotel is historic and authentic....that means that not every thing is modern luxury or updated. Some things are just old (luxury at time they were installed), and if you are not 'into' the history and the experience, then you might be disappointed. The naturalists on staff were fabulous, and provided outstanding service, tours, and information. They were one of the highlights of our visit. Bicycles are provided and are very well maintained. We rode to plum orchard one day with our picnic lunch, and road to the beach every day we were there!!! The beach is fabulous...and because the US gov't was shutdown during our visit, we felt as though we had the island to ourselves!!! The evening meals were an event (men wearing jackets), and on Thursday-Sunday (I believe, but check to be sure) a wine pairing is prepared for each course of the meal. The charge is hefty for the pairing but absolutely worth it in our book!! We loved the pairings, they were perfect with the food, and one included an older cellared German Riesling that you just don't find very often. We did not realize that the pairings are on limited days so it was a disappointment to not have one on Monday (it was a birthday). Lastly, I would encourage you to 'not stress' over the dress-for-dinner policy. It is not a formal thing, and everyone is comfortable and friendly. We met lots of folks...some were wealthy nationwide business owners..others were retired professionals, but in all cases they were friendly and genial. It was a delight to chat with many different folks while we were there. It was an amazing special place, and we highly recommend the Inn and Cumberland Island (hope that we are able to return soon).
