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.

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

We celebrated our 32nd anniversary at the Fairbanks. We are rather new to FL and found it to be especially relaxing in the Kitchen Suite. Loved the decor, balcony/pool side, the comfy bed et all. The breakfasts were delightful. We managed to find the Four Seasons/quality restaurant (recommended by Bill and Theresa), off the Island for our Sat. evening dinner... More

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
