My husband and I stayed here last year, in August 2013, for our 10 year wedding anniversary. (sorry so late with this review!) The place is gorgeous, quiet, comfortable beds, beautiful, old furniture, and our room had a claw foot tub. We didn't mind the walk to the main street area as it was nice stroll and helped us work...

My husband and I decided to elope using Fairbanks House's Elopement Package and it was the best decision we could have made. Bill and Theresa took care of every single detail and we did not have to worry about a thing. The house is beautiful and all of the amenities were top notch. Breakfast was delicious and fresh each morning,... More

My Partner and I wanted a quick weekend getaway to Amelia Island and the Fairbank House was just the place to do so! The Inn in and of itself is beautiful however, partner that with the hospitality of the innkeepers (Theresa and Bill) and the rich history of the area there is no way this weekend could have been any...

My Mom & I had the privilege of staying 2 nights @ the Fairbanks House recently, in a word AMAZING! We stayed in the Magnolia Suite which was very roomy & had lots of character. Breakfast both mornings was delicious, so much so that I had to purchase a cookbook so I could duplicate the recipes at home. However, the... More

We absolutely LOVE the Fairbanks House!

This weekend was our second visit to the Fairbanks House and it was just as wonderful and memorable as our first!! Bill and Theresa truly go above and beyond to make everyone comfortable. Theresa handled our dinner arrangements in advance and even accommodated my husband's special breakfast request. We felt like family more than returning guests! The food is top-notch... More

Celebrated out wedding anniversary at this wonderful B&B. Attention to every detail, courteous, and attentive. Hosts truly enjoy what they do and it shows in the way they interact with all guests. Helpful in selecting day activities, as well as suggesting great restaurants. Truly made our stay extra special. Thanks, will be back.

The inn is beautiful, the meals were delicious, and the location was perfect. Perfect, perfect, perfect. I can not say it enough!

We just spent 3 nights at this wonderful B&B. We wanted someplace where we could relax and unwind in preparation of our upcoming new arrival. Fairbanks House met and surpassed our expectations. The property is clean and well kept. Our room was tastefully decorated, keeping in theme with the grandeur of the house, while not being overwhelmingly busy. Theresa and... More

We cannot recommend this place highly enough! Excellent accommodations, food and hospitality. It has everything you would expect in a top quality B&B, but it is the extras like the cocktail hour, the evening snack baked goods and the genuineness of the hosts that make it truly special.
