Note  ABOUT STAFFORD & GLAMPING: Stafford Place was built c.1900 for the Carnegie family. The family stewards of Stafford have worked hard for years to maintain the original charm and provenance of this estate. There are many challenges presented for historic preservation in a wilderness such as Cumberland Island.  Lucy and her family have lovingly done an amazing job and graciously allow a select few into this private retreat for wellness, art, etc. The house has period and modern furnishings, most are family heirlooms. Accommodations are shared, comfortable rooms with quality linens. There are 4 working toilets in the house and a shower house for bathing outdoors.
