Selecting an inn from a website is always a gamble. Clever camera angles and cagy descriptions can be deceptive. The Hoyt House, however, far exceeds the pictures and descriptions from its website. The internet does not do justice to the beautiful front entrance with the canopy of spanish moss-draped trees and landscaped walkway leading to the covered wrap-around porch. The inside of the Inn was equally appealing.
The owners were even more inviting than the property. Deborah and Myrta hosted the evening wine and cheese hour as if we were old friends who had dropped by and the breakfasts were extraordinary.
The Hoyt House is on the busiest street of the historic district of Fernandina Beach, which some might consider a drawback but we found it to be an ideal location. (Busy is a relative term since this is a small town.) The house was just a few minutes' walk from the shopping area and was an easy bicycle ride to the state park and public beaches on the complimentary bicycles they provided. Our room was extremely clean, quiet, and well decorated. The pool and hot tub area were quiet, private, and relaxing.
We travel frequently, both in the United States and abroad and have stayed in a variety of places, ranging from five star hotels to budget motels. Our favorite places are those that provide top end amenities with a relaxed and casual atmosphere. That describes the Hoyt House perfectly. We highly recommend staying there.
