As most people do, they read a review while waiting for the dreaded BUT…it was great, but…it was clean, but…. so let’s get that out of the way immediately. There are no BUT’S, this place is perfection. The Inn is charming and meticulously maintained, the enclosed gardens are beautifully landscaped, and the rooms are bright, modern and immaculately clean. They lack for nothing – you couldn't find anything wrong if you tried. Our hosts, Bob and Shannon, were down to earth and genuinely nice - the perfect Inn Keepers! Breakfasts were just wonderful – the food was delicious, plentiful, offered a good variety, and was nicely presented. Being setup on an outside veranda with all the greenery and flowers, it was a nice way to wake up and enjoy the morning. Drinks and snacks are available at all times plus Shannon’s homemade cookies were always in the jar! Happy Hour each evening was great bonus – good wine, appetizers and conversation; it was fun having the chance to chat with some of the other guests from all over the world. Bob could do stand-up and his knowledge of the island and suggestions about what to do and where to eat were right-on. There are so many great restaurants and things to do on the Island – most within walking distance. I would not hesitate one minute on choosing the Addison – treat yourself and make your trip to Amelia Island a great one by staying here. I hope my travels bring me back soon.
