This was the third time we have stayed at The Fairbanks House--14 years after the last time! And we must say that time has made it even better! Our hosts, Bill and Theresa, welcomed us like it had only been a week since they saw us last, which made us feel special right from the start. The Fairbanks House is... More

We stayed at the Fairbanks Hotel for a week in April for a girls get together. Bill and Theresa are fabulous hosts- it's almost as if you were their friends and not paying guests! They were helfpul, funny,knowledgeable, always available and great cooks. The hotel is a beautiful Victorian and so close to the downtown shopping and restaurants it takes... More

My husband and I just got back from an amazing weekend on Amelia Island. We loved how close this B&B is to the downtown area and some fantastic restaurants. Theresa and Bill both are very funny and kind. You must read the room information book just to see a hint of their sense of humor. Breakfast was amazing and delicious.... More

This is about as good as B & Bs get in Florida. It is a beautifully restored 1880s Victorian in the historic district of Fernandina Beach. Walking distance to a good choice of restaurants, shops and the waterfront where an excursion boat and charter boats are available. We had a large room with a sitting area and a king size... More

My stay started with a gracious welcome from Theresa. She did the paperwork and gave me a bit of an orientation since this was my first time at a B&B. The place was beautiful. The room was very nice. Comfy bed. You need to walk through the property during the day- so much to see- And if it's AM you... More

This made my first Bed and Breakfast experience and it was better than we had imagined. Lovely and polite staff, beautiful grounds, prime location to restaurants, beach and other attractions. If we come back to Amelia Island, we will definitely make it a priority to stay here again!

This was my 4th visit to Fairbanks. . . .and my 3rd with my sisters to celebrate a 40th birthday and this year it was my turn! As always we do the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun package, but this year I added the Make Me Over Package. Every single detail was taken care of to perfection. Fairbanks has chosen... More

Girls just wanna have fun, and that we did! Not only do the "girls that wanna have fun" go and stay at the Fairbanks House (FBH), the girls who live and work there like having fun too, just check out the picture posted. The FBH web-site is a great overview of the amenities you'll experience, however it can't compare to... More
