My husband and I enjoy B&B inns and have stayed in numerous ones across the country. This was our first time to Amelia Island, and Fairbanks House is conveniently located to the historical district and not far from the beach. The House is clean and well-maintained. All of the rooms are decorated beautifully. The House has quite a history and... More

My husband and I got married at the Fairbanks House in March. The cottage we stayed in was beautiful, but we toured the house and ALL of the rooms were large and stunning. The breakfasts were the best I have had at a bed and breakfast, and I could not wait to see what was on the menu each day.... More

My wife and I chose this B&B as our base to explore Amelia Island and we are glad we did. Theresa and Bill were wonderful hosts and a great source of information on the area as well. Fairbanks is a beautiful old home. Breakfasts were scrumptious and the pool refreshing on hot July weekend. You can't go wrong at this... More

My wife and I stayed at the Fairbanks House over July 4th weekend and absolutely loved every second of our stay! Bill and Theresa are as welcoming and friendly of hosts as you could want at a B&B. We attended social hour each night which gave us great opportunity to meet other guests and Bill/Theresa during that time would also... More

We had a wonderful experience at Bill and Theresa's historic Fairbanks House. The old Victorian house is beautiful inside and out on well maintained grounds. Our room was large with a living room, little kitchen and huge master with king size bed. Here is the best part about our stay.......in the evening over wine Theresa gives you wonderful advise on...

What a great place! We stayed in the School House Cottage which is set apart from the main house. It has a king bedroom, living room, a dinette table for 2 and a kitchenette with a full size fridge, microwave and coffee maker. It also has its own thermostat and central air unit. The cottage has many windows and is... More

My new wife and I had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before and were skeptical at first, but now we are full time b&b'ers! Bill and Theresa were the epitome of hospitality. They made everything so personal and by the end of our stay i felt like they were family. The rooms are perfect, breakfast was delicious, location... More

Bill and Theresa rolled out the red carpet for us. From the moment we arrived early (and they let us get in a nap) to totally taking care of all the details of our elopement, we couldn't have asked for anything better. The Fairbanks is lovely, warm,and inviting. We met some great people at the delicious breakfast every morning. Theresa... More
