Greyfield Inn

The Greyfield Inn--the only hotel on the island--was built by Thomas and Lucy Carnegie in 1900, as a home for their daughter, Margaret Ricketson.  It was later converted to an inn in 1962 by Margaret’s daughter, Lucy R. Ferguson, and her family. The Carnegie family still oversees the Inn, which exudes the romance and luxury of a grand hotel with the hospitality and charm of a family home.

For those planning to stay at the Greyfield for the weekend, please call (904) 261-6408 to reserve your room.  The Inn requires a two-night minimum stay, and all meals are included.  During that time, guests can take full advantage of everything that Cumberland Island offers: biking under the oaks, exploring the untouched beaches, nature hikes, kayaking along the river, communing with the wild horses, exploring the ruins, birding, fishing, and more.

In order to access the island, guests must arrive by ferry.  The address for the Greyfield ferry's launching dock is 1 N Front Street / Fernandina Beach, FL 32034.  The Inn will provide further information, including the ferry's departure times, when you call to book your reservation.
