Extraordinary! Best B&B I have ever stayed in! The condition of the property is beautiful, the small details (like butterscotch bars waiting for you when you get home at night that were made that afternoon!) make this place a wonderful experience. The owners are SOOOO helpful and cultivate a friendly atmosphere. Cannot say enough about how incredible our stay was!

My wife (fiance when we got there!) were treated to one of those every-so-often experiences when expectations were so far exceeded that it was almost surreal. Theresa and Bill compliment each other wonderfully as hostess and host. The house is charming, clean as a whistle and the Kitchen Suite we stayed in was warm and cozy. Breakfasts were delicious and... More

The Fairbanks House is a wonderfully run and maintained B & B. Upon check-in, the friendly owner Theresa upgraded us to a larger room, which was not expected. She made our stay very pleasant, making sure we knew about the guest get-together in the late afternoon, and asking if we needed any recommendations for dinner or things to do. She... More

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

I booked the Kitchen Suite for my husband's birthday. It was simply gorgeous The view to the lovely pool and garden was breath taking. Bill and Theresa made us feel very comfortable. We will visit again

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...
