Scale of 90-100
Stately white-pillared inn with 16 lodgings surrounded by expanses of green lawn and moss-draped oaks on Cumberland Island, once the retreat of the Carnegie family and now a national seashore. Many of the individually decorated rooms include features such as beadboard wainscoting, four-poster beds and period furnishings; old-fashioned baths provide claw-foot tub-showers. (Note: Six of the rooms in the main inn have shared baths; be sure to inquire.) No internet or TV; emergency phone only. Gracious living room. Exceptional food is served family-style at tables set with crystal, silver and china; picnic baskets prepared for lunch. Naturalist-led activities; pristine beaches. No cars permitted on the island. No children under age 5.

The atmosphere of complete relaxation; there is no pressure whatever to forsake a rocking chair on the front porch.
As charming as it is to have authentic plumbing fixtures, the encircling shower curtain around our combined tub/shower proved a challenge.
