Fodor's Review

Once described as a "Tara by the sea," this turn-of-the-last-century Carnegie family home is Cumberland Island's only accommodation. Built in 1900 for Lucy Ricketson, Thomas and Lucy Carnegie's daughter, the inn is filled with period antiques, family portraits, and original furniture that evoke the country elegance of a bygone era. And the solitude offered by this 1,000-acre private compound also seems a luxury from the past. Prices include all meals, transportation by private boat from Fernandina Beach, FL, tours led by a naturalist, and bikes.
