My wife and I stayed in one of The Fairbanks House's private cottages for our honeymoon. Neither of us had been to a bed and breakfast before, nor to Amelia Island. Let me tell you - you will NOT regret your decision to stay at The Fairbanks House. The owners, Bill & Theresa, are the nicest, most welcoming couple ever.... More

When my husband and I decided to elope, I made some initial calls to other B&B's in the area to see which was a better fit for us. As pretty as other locations were, my attention kept going back to the Fairbanks House so I reached out and I am glad I did. Theresa was absolutely fantastic to deal with... More

Goodness! After reading some of the other reviews, how could we add anything more than what has already been expressed about the wonderful Fairbanks House and it's owners' Theresa and Bill Hamilton! Ok, well we'll try! Our elopement was beyond perfect! Theresa is a master at every detail imaginable and unbelievably talented. We didn't have to worry about a thing.... More

My husband and I needed a place to stay for one night on a trip from North Carolina to Florida and chose the Fairbanks House based on reviews from TripAdviser. It was an excellent choice! Theresa greeted us, gave us some wine, and some suggestions for dinner - Le Clos (perfect!). Breakfast was delicious! Great discussion with Bill during breakfast.... More

Simply lots of fun. This is a fabulous old home within easy walking distance of historic downtown Fernandina Beach. Lots of good restaurants and shopping. We tend to look for places close to everything so we can walk to dinner. The innkeepers are some of the best I have ever encountered and their enjoyment in running their house and dealing... More

My Husband and I are so amazed at how Theresa & Bill took care of everything for us.... We didn't have to think about all of the details. Theresa had it all covered... it could not have went any better. It was more than we had thought it would be. We are so very happy we went to the Fairbanks... More

As you read the reviews for this B&B, what else can I add to what has not been written by others. "You just can't find anything negative to say about our experience here". So I will simply share my thoughts on traveling with a disabled person who are wheelchair bound, or with walker or bad knee's, the stairs leading to... More

Me and my wife stay here every Christmas and usually one weekend a year. We love this place and the area around here. Today is checkout day and we will be booking next year on the way out. Bill and Theresa are amazing and treat everyone like family. They are accommodating to special needs and diets as well. Hope they... More

Spent the weekend and couldn't have asked for better accommodations. Room was beautifully decorated, clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast both days was excellent, not your typical continental breakfast, we were served a full hot meal. Theresa and Bill were so warm and welcoming, and I have to say we enjoyed Theresa's sense of humor...and she is a great... More
