Peaceful Epworth by the Sea

Reviewed 4 september, 2020

We took a trip to St. Simons Island for our first getaway after being cooped up from Covid. The island is an easy three-hour drive for us from Hilton Head Island. We have a particular interest in the St. Simon Trilogy books written by St. Simons historical novelist, Eugenia Price, and wanted to visit island locations she wrote about. We scored a 'two-fer" when we discovered Epworth By The Sea, a Methodist conference center, built on the grounds of the former Hamilton Plantation which Price writes about in the novel, "Lighthouse." Unfortunately, the free admission Moore Methodist Museum was closed because of Covid but we walked the peaceful beautiful grounds. Normally, the museum offers extensive information about Island History (St. Simons 360; Historical Video tour, Hamilton Plantation, Lovely Lane Chapel); Methodist History (John and Charles Wesley, Francis Asbury, Circuit Riders, Bishop Arthur J. Moore); Georgia History (Bishops, Missionaries, Women in Methodism); Nativities Collection (Over 85 international nativities); and, John Wesley Lecture (Free lecture on Thursdays at 2:00 p.m.). A Christian gift shop and book store complement the programs. A short drive leads to Gascoigne Bluff, location of the important saw mills on the Hamilton Plantation of the Lighthouse era. Two reconstructed tabby slave cabins adjacent to Epworth are worthy of a visit. They are maintained by the Cassina Garden Club. There is so much history on these grounds. The Epworth grounds are large including an auditorium, motel, historic buildings and a beautiful view of the water. Epworth was the name of the Wesley brothers', (founders of Methodism) home village in England. Members of the Methodist faith would find Epworth by the Sea a treasure trove of faith. I'm only sorry Covid prevented us from exploring the museum.

Boyfriend and I booked a room through hotels.com. The room was clean and comfortable,however it would have been helpful to know that it's a religious based camp. Pool closed at 7pm and you aren't allowed to bring in any alcoholic beverages.

A place of peace and serenity

Reviewed 13 february, 2020

If you are wanting a peaceful, safe and serene place to visit, I highly recommend Epworth By the Sea. When I enter through the gates, my stress level seems to go away. The grounds are beautiful and it is such a beautiful place to walk. I love going into the little chapel and meditating while there. There are several types of accommodations on the grounds. If you want a river view, I highly recommend the Roberson Inn or the Turner Lodge (this has balconies). You can purchase meals at the cafeteria that is onsite. I think the best thing about Epworth besides the beautiful grounds are the employees who are friendly and will help you with any questions you have! I highly recommend this place for church retreats or just getting away from it all!!! The only thing I don't like about Epworth is having to leave.

Beautiful Place!!

Just got home from a weekend Women’s retreat through my church. This place is so nice! The grounds are beautiful, the food was tasty, our hotel room was clean with a nice view of the water and the sunset was spectacular!! Already want to go back with hubby.

Dated, sugary food, nice scenery, SLOW internet a real killer

Reviewed 19 october, 2019

You can probably get what sort of place this is from other reviewers. If you're Christian, don't mind dated rooms and facilities and like a serene natural setting, this could be for you. I have been here more than once, and the fact that the Internet is frustratingly slow (last I checked 86kpps in Robertson building, and it's taken my about 10 minutes just to load this page) is really a deal-breaker for 2019 and the claim that they have "hi-speed internet."
