A lot of our clients are looking for smaller homes, whether its because of downsizing or a second home; and we have had a lot of requests for 2,000 square foot single story homes.
This single story home offers a 2,322 sq. ft. home with a two car garage at 523 sq. ft. It is an open floor plan with three bedrooms 2-1/2 baths and large covered porches on the front and back of the home.

We love the oversized family room and its angled placement in the home which utilizes every square inch of space.  We also like how the master bedroom is tucked away behind the family room so you have beautiful views outside to your backyard and have optimum privacy within the home.

Covington Cottage is another great home plan from Southern Living that blends traditional elements with comfortable family living.  This home would fit great on one of our Park Place homesites, but is also flexible enough to work on other sites within Cumberland Harbour as well.
This home comes in just under 2,000 sq. ft. with three bedrooms, 2 full baths on one level.  We love the “keeping room” at the back of the home adjacent to the kitchen.  “Keeping rooms” are a small sitting area where family and friends can relax and “keep” the cook company while they are preparing their delicious dinner!

This home could easily have a back screened in porch added to it!

Shopping in St. Marys, GA

We love to shop local!  Deborah Cottle opened Cottle & Gunn which is a store that sells and does a little of everything.  They have a line of products made in Georgia, they sell furniture, and they even sell church pews!  Here is Debbie’s bio taken from hre website:

“From an early age I loved all things vintage. I loved to take old things and bring new life to them. While some women were collecting shoes and handbags, I was collecting furniture. A few years ago I fell in love with the little town of St. Marys, Georgia and couldn’t imagine a better place to call home and to raise my daughter ~ Little Cottle.

A chance meeting with another talented lady and a few months later Cottle and Gunn was born. Together our love of paint, old things and furniture created a shop in downtown St. Marys unlike any other.  Our vision was simple…to create a local shop that featured local artists, crafters, and homemade goodness.

Although Gunn has retired from the business, I’ve been happy to carry on what we started together. It is so very important to me to continue to be the small shop that supports locals.  Little Cottle can often be found dancing on the sidewalk and handing out business cards in the summers and some Saturdays!”

“Do what you love. Love what you do.”

Cottle & Gunn offers paint classes where you bring in a small item of furniture to paint as well as craft classes.

Local artisans and makers sell their wares throughout the shop.  These talented creatives were hand picked to showcase their finest crafts and finds. Each and every day the shop has new goods in store!

~Handmade soap and  candles

~Pillows, wall hangings, aprons, socks…

~Locally built and craftfully painted signs

~Vintage hip jewelry and  purses

~Fresh picked salvage and flea market finds

~Just a whole bunch of really cool junk

Cottle & Gun carries the full range of products from Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint.  They also carry everything you need to get your DIY projects done!
We love going to browse and looking at the beautiful pieces of furniture that are transformed with a fresh coat of paint!
Check out Cottle & Gunn’s website or stop by their store when you’re in town!   You won’t be able to leave without buying some trinket or a large piece of furniture!

Fun Things to do in
Cumberland Harbour
Pickle Ball
Pickle ball seems to be sweeping the nation as an alternative to tennis.  Our pickle balls courts were installed several years ago as interest grew in our commuity. 
Cumberland Harbour has two courts which are put to good use throughout the year by our residents.  This is also a great time of year to be outside with the cooler temperatures and getting some much needed exercise and vitamin D!
Cumberland Harbour offers homesites on deep water, marsh front, lake views, nature and our cottages at Park Place.  We also offer assistance with home and design plans as well as access to our Signature Builders.
