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

This was our 3rd stay with Bill and Theresa at the Fairbanks House. Again, we were not disappointed!! Bill and Theresa really treat their guests like family (but in a good way! LOL!) and provide every possible amenity/convenience. Breakfast, 5:00 pm social hour, and evening treats are all included and are all delicious! Parking is free and the house is... More

I recommend this B&B to everyone. It was a beautiful home. We stayed in the "kitchen" suite. It had a private entrance as well an entrance into the house. It had a private balcony as well. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the balcony in the evenings. The only noise was nature and a train off in the distance. It was... More

The Fairbanks House is a delightful B&B with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. We enjoyed excellent breakfasts and very nice rooms. This trip was our second time staying at the Fairbanks and my wife and I needed a "go with the flow" couple of days. There were many options and opportunities offered of things to do on the island. But... More

I close my annual vacation to Amelia Island for Shrimp Fest within a day, sadly, so, I need to express my appreciation to the owners and staff here at this wonderful bed and breakfast. Arriving here brings an escape back into the quiet lifestyle of the traditional South with moss laden trees and equisite gardens and majestic old homes. One... More

My husband and I have visited Fenandina but never stayed in the area. We found the Fairbanks House Bed and Breakfast online and spent two nights there to celebrate our 29th anniversary. It was wonderful! Bill and Theresa were fantastic hosts, the food was fabulous, the historic home is pristine, and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the other... More
