Emma's Cottage House is situated on four acres in historical downtown St. Marys, Georgia. It was on this property that Sam Bealey, a superintendent for Dungeness on Cumberland Island, brought his bride "Miss Emma", as she became lovingly known in St. Marys, to live in 1911. The house his father, Richard Bealey, built in the late 1800s no longer stands. But if you close your eyes and breathe deeply you can take in the scents of the South that Miss Emma loved and cared for.
The grounds host many Southern favorites such as magnolias, gardenias, jasmine, azaleas, hydrangeas, and camellias. Many are left over from Miss Emma's own nursery on the property. Enjoy your breakfast on the deck and watch the numerous birds that make their habitat at Emma's.
The cottage located directly behind the main house has five guest rooms, all with private baths. Each room has cable TV, wireless DSL, hair dryer, ironing board and iron, luxury linens and towels, and wonderful bath products by Gilchrist & Soames. All rooms include access to the cottage den which features comfortable sofas, kitchenette and game tables. This is a great place for friends and family to gather. There is also a spacious deck with fire pit for added enjoyment.
