Our cottage is just eight short miles, but a world-away, from I-95, within easy day tripping distance to the sights, shopping, dining and beaches of Savannah, St Simons and Cumberland Island in Georgia and St Augustine, Jacksonville, and Fernandina in Florida. "Slip Away" is the simple solution to escaping the stress of the outside world. It's a true sanctuary that's been designer decorated inside and out.
Only in St Marys can you settle in on a swing along the RiverFront as the sunset dips into the state's southern-most boundary, take in an evening concert under the stars, drink a cold beverage at one of several nearby cafes or eat just-caught sweet Georgia shrimp, all within walking distance of home. Watch the locals scoot by and wave from bikes and golf-carts, the kids play near the fountain in Gilman Park and everybody shows up for morning coffee at the shops along Osborne St. You'll find that life moves at an old-fashioned pace and with a vanishing grace that you swore no longer existed.
"Slip Away" is truly a spot you?ll love coming home to.
