“Excellent Weekend Get Away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I really cannot add anything to the countless positive posters before me, as all of them were spot on. We just came back from a weekend at the Addision, and it was Super Clean, had an excellent location, superb breakfast, accomodating and enertaining hosts, great bikes that are always available for guest use, and quality restaurants and the harbor all within walking distance.

Room Tip: Room #5 is very quiet, and has no balcony, but it is in the upstairs of the main house and directly...

We have been to several B&B's in different cities but this is our favorite B&B. We loved the fact that the Innkeepers Bob and Shannon live on the property. They make you feel welcome from the minute you walk in the Addison. We loved everything about the Addison from the afternoon happy hours, delicous breakfast, and the comfortable beds. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Room 5 in the Main House is quiet and away from Ash Street. If you are a light sleeper, this is a g...

This was the most beautiful and relaxing bed and breakfast! The bed was super comfy, the owners/staff were very nice, it was clean, and breakfast was delicious! They had bikes, movies, games, snacks, bath salts...you get the picture. Anything to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable! My husband said, he was as comfortable as staying with family- in a good way! The Addison was a fantastic treat!

Room Tip: Room 4 had a great tub and a fireplace!

This B&B is a genuine rare gem. Spotless rooms, top-notch housekeeping and genuinely welcoming and warm innkeepers Bob and Shannon make your stay a pleasure. The breakfasts are extraordinarily delicious….no need for lunch! You can fall asleep to the pleasant drop of the fountain in the square and don’t miss the Happy Hour-- you are likely to meet a lively and interesting set of fellow guests. Bob is a wealth of information about sites and timetables and directions and all those annoying detailed questions that he has likely answered on thousand times by now. Shannon is a cook extraordinaire—a talent only eclipsed by her interior decorating abilities. I am a very picky person and I would stay there again in a nanosecond. Don’t miss it!

Room Tip: Our room (#6) is excellent if you have mobility problems. However, it is near the porch and if you...

We just returned from Amelia Island and six wonderful days at The Addison. While the description and testimonials on line influenced our decision to stay there, The Addison surpassed our expectations. Perfect is the adjective that describes our experience. The gourmet breakfasts that changed daily, the lovely room, the daily happy hour and the charming inn keepers were all part of our enjoyable stay. We extended our stay for one night before we sadly had to leave. We can't wait to return, and we will. Thank you Bob, Shannon and Lee.
Gary and Beverly

Room Tip: We requested and received a first floor room with a walk-in shower.

I needed a quiet getaway for a few days and had visited the Island many times in the past, however, always staying in a nearby hotel. I decided a B&B would best fit the stay this time and wow, did I find a gem! There is nothing about this gem being in the rough. It is truly polished and brilliant from the warm and kind owners, Bob and Shannon, to the fantastic staff. If you want to feel welcomed, pampered, and special on your excursion to this beautiful Island, this is the place to stay. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

The Addison is truly special--it is a very well maintained, lovely, friendly place to spend a few days in darling Fernandina Beach. Bob and Shannon are excellent hosts and the afternoon happy hour and morning breakfasts are worth the visit alone!
