GREYFIELD INN, CUMBERLAND ISLAND by Jonathan Hall
The sole commercial establishment on Cumberland Island, an alluring landscape of protected beaches and maritime forest off Georgia's southeastern coast, the Greyfield estate was built by the Carnegie family 1901-1905.
The house became an Inn in 1962 and is still operated by the Carnegie family. It features no wifi, television or cell service, encouraging visitors to detach from modern life and experience the Islands secluded and tranquil setting. Framed by moss-draped ancient live oaks, the elegant Colonial-style mansion remains almost identical aesthetically to when it was first built.
Wild horses run wild throughout the Island's miles long beaches and hundreds of acres of forest.
