“Perfect Beach Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Small, private place to stay right on the beach. We stayed on a small building next to the main house. The property had four units, two on the bottom and two on the top. We stayed in the top floor, facing the beach, with a huge sun deck. The room and bath are large, with sturdy furniture which brings to mind the west indies. Breakfast is served in the main house. While the breakfast is served buffet style it is very, very good. It is possible to get sandwiches and small snacks throughout the day and the sandwiches were good as well. There are umbrellas and lounge chairs provided beach side. The location of this b&b can't be beat. The property is located on the northern part of Fernandina Beach. It is a short drive away from all the restaurants and a short walk from a wonderful State Park, Fort Clinch. One thing I will say is that housekeeping is iffy.

Room Tip: If you can swing it, The Tradewinds is the best room

My wife and I knew we would be travelling through Amelia Island and we only had one night to stay. Boy did we pick the right place!

Elizabeth Point is amazing. They have a beautiful view of a dune and the ocean. They have comfortable, friendly-feeling rooms. They have a ridiculously-scrumptious breakfast (maybe the best French toast ever). But best of all, they have impeccable customer service.

During our stay, we were able to check in early. They provided us with complimentary lemonade and homemade cookies. They provided us with complimentary beach towels so we didn't have to use ours and worry about the wet, sandy mess on the way home. They set up and took down the complimentary beach umbrellas and chairs for us. They even came out and warned us when a storm was coming. No resort can possibly offer that degree of service! We had dinner plans, but it is worth noting that they have 24-hour food service in addition to a complimentary wine/beer hour.

My only slightly negative comments are that a pool would be nice and a little less late night music from somewhere next door would have been icing on the cake.

I'm not a big B&B guy, and I was concerned going into our trip. Now I'm certain my wife and I will be back to Amelia Island and will definitely stay at the serene, yet completely-capable Elizabeth Pointe Lodge!

Perfect small place to stay right on the beach! We had an oceanfront king room and kept our windows opened to see and hear the ocean all night long! The staff is wonderful - cannot do enough for you. Room service 24/7. Fantastic breakfast buffet every morning with different choices every day - biscuits and gravy, grits, eggs, meats. potatoes, fruits, cereals, bagels, breads, etc. Owners David and Susan and manager Olivia always around talking to and greeeting their guests. Happy hour every evening with wines, lemonade, cheese and fruit trays, hot appetizers, etc. Staff always ready to help with activity suugestions, will book reservations for you and will print out boarding passes. Couldn't recommend this place enough! Met some great people there.

We just spent one night here on our way back to Naples from Charleston. The staff were great, very friendly and went out of their way to be accommodating. We had an oceanfront queen room, and it was great leaving the windows open and listening to the surf all night. The wine happy hour was great, with everyone congregating on the lovely back porch. The breakfast was also awesome. I would have loved to extend our visit, but they were booked. However they were more than accommodating with us wanting to stay and spend some extra time on the beach, offering to store the luggage and offering a changing room. I will definitely be planning a return visit.

At the Elizabeth Pointe Lodge we checked into one of the Oceanfront King rooms. The room was small, but nicely appointed. I always have to remind myself that a B&B is not a hotel.

They have a hotel-style breakfast with juices, coffee, cereal, eggs, sausage, pancakes, etc, but the quality of the food is much better. They also have evening hors devours with wine or beer. Again the food was very good and the selection of wines excellent.

In general we were impressed with the staff here. They seemed a little slow in responding at the front desk at check in as the person there was answering the phone and no one else was paying any attention. We were told to ask anyone about things to do on the island, but when we did the person didn’t know anything about what we asked. Very confusing, but overall they do an excellent job. There were three weddings while we were there, all on the beach, which is very nice. As a plus the public beach is adjacent so there were life guards close.

This small hotel/large bed and breakfast has great reviews and it lived up to most of the hype. I knew we might not get beach weather in March and I was right! It was down right cold on the beach but we had a great time going into Fernandina to shop and to eat at the many great restaurants. We also visited Fort Clinch state park on a beautiful sunny day and shielded from the wind by the old fort, I actually felt warm for a few hours.

Our room was located in the Ocean house on the lower floor. It smelled a bit musty and did not have a lot of light but it was the only room available when I booked. The breakfast was great and we enjoyed talking to some other couples both younger (20's) and older (60's). My husband and I had just turned 50. Both couples were from the south and we are from New Jersey so it was interesting.

The location of the hotel was not what I expected. Other homes on both sides were very close and although the lodge is beautiful, most of the other homes, condos and hotels along the beach are not. It was not aesthetically pleasing to walk along the beach and see such ugly architecture but the town of Fernandina, a very short ride away, is historic and pretty and so is Fort Clinch State Park.

We recently spent 4 nights at this wonderful B&B in Amelia Island, FL. The small inn exceeded our expectations. From the time of check in until check out, the staff made us feel special, they were helpful in every way possible. A bottle of champagne was delivered to our room to acknowledge that we were celebrating our anniversary (must have mentioned it when making the reservation). Nice surprise! Breakfast each morning presented a wonderful assortment of food choices with amazing ocean views. Each evening from 6-7 was wine and appetizers in the library. Beach umbrellas and beach towels are provided for all of their guests. They offer 24/7 room service and have a small menu of sandwiches and homemade desserts. The owners also make a point to meet each of their guest either at breakfast or wine hour. We really enjoyed out time here and definitely plan to return!
