Gorgeous Bed & Breakfast! Bill and Theresa are the nicest people and extremely helpful in planning activities, making reservations, and recommending things to do. We will definitely be back to the Fairbanks House soon!

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

After having eloped to The Fairbanks House a year ago, we returned for our one year anniversary. The Hamilton's (Bill and Theresa) once again did not disappoint. I am in awe of the talents of these two. There was excellent detail to all that we could've needed or wanted during our stay. Theresa is an excellent chef and we looked... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway at this AMAZING Bed & Breakfast. The whole weekend was a dream, the most gorgeous B&B I've ever stayed in. Bill and Theresa made us feel so at home, welcomed, and special for our very special weekend. We will definitely be back!

People were really discouraging us from eloping. They kept telling us that it would not be as special if we did not have friends and family. WELL, LET ME TELL YOU.. That this was everything and more that we could have imagined. Bill and Theresa are the kindest, funniest couple, not to mention, amazing cook! The mansion is BEAUTIFUL and... More

My husband & I decided to make a memory instead of exchanging Christmas gifts this past year. So after Christmas & after researching online, we spent three amazing days at the Fairbanks House at Amelia Island. It is absolutely gorgeous and the owners, Theresa & Bill, were outstanding. They are so accommodating, friendly, warm, kind, & very funny. Every breakfast... More

First, I'm usually the one reading reviews, so I assure you, no one has coaxed me into writing this nor am receiving any freebies to do so as many places do. I can NOT say enough about this place and cannot wait to go back for our anniversary if not sooner. This B&B was amazing - Clean, comfortable and beautiful.... More

We stayed at the Fairbanks House 10 years ago and had always wanted to return. My daughter and I stayed there recently and as we did before, had an amazing stay. The owners, Bill and Theresa see to every detail. They are so nice, knowledgeable, and fun and that carries through all that they do. The cocktail hour is a... More

Our stay at Fairbanks House was a pleasant change from our usual hotel/motel stay. Accommodations were nice, B&B owners and staff were attentive, and the food was tasty. We highly recommend staying here.
