We absolutely loved our too short stay at the Williams Houses. Veronica makes such an enormous effort to make sure that your stay is absolutely perfect. Her breakfast is top-notch, and the bed was one of the most comfortable we’ve ever slept in. We really enjoyed getting to know the area, and we had a wonderful dinner at Burlingame, which Veronica recommended. Our stay was so much more interesting because we stayed at the Williams houses and not at ordinary hotel down by the beach. Thank you, Veronica.

Drawn to the Amelia Island Concourse, we discovered Williams House. From the gourmet breakfasts to the soft, fluffy robes, you cannot find a more elegant and hospitable place to stay. Veronica, the owner, takes great pride and care in making your stay gracious and welcoming. Every room has been recently renovated to the highest standards. -J and S Lewis

The Amelia Island Williams House is this gorgeous Stick Victorian, meticulously maintained by Veronica and her amazing staff. You open the door to the smell of freshly baked cookies. The credenza is filled with the cookies under glass along with the overflowing candy jar. Veronica is clearly the captain of this ship and she will answer any questions and pays close attention to all of your preferences and needs. The breakfast is absolutely delicious and you will stay full well into the afternoon… Her overnight oats are the best I have ever eaten. Our room was very comfortable.

We spent two marvelous night in the Williams House. The weather was cold and rainy, but the atmosphere inside this historic house was warm and welcoming. The house is very clean, well appointed and decorated by its owner Veronica. Everything, to the smallest detail, is perfect. Breakfast time is a feast. Each dish is delicately prepared and served by Veronica and her attentive staff... a delice.

Absolutely Perfect! Stayed at the Williams House with friends for Christmas 2023 (Dec 23-26). Veronica, the Innkeeper had thought of every detail to make our holiday as delightful and stress free imaginable. Just amazing..... The Christmas package included a local boat ride, a tour of the historic district given by a docent from the history museum in town, an incredible picnic lunch, and two dinners withing walking distance for Dec 24 & 25 so we didn't even have to worry about making reservations. It's located a block from the Fernandina's main street and you can walk everywhere. I parked my car the day I arrived and didn't move it until I was ready to leave. The Williams House is tastefully decorated with attention to making sure you have everything you need--even had more than enough outlets and charging available for electronics which is sometimes lacking. My room was charming, immaculate, quiet and the bed was very, very comfortable. Breakfasts were home made and served by Veronica and her delightful staff--absolutely delicious! Of course if you were hungry during the day there were always freshly baked cookies, hot coffee & hot chocolate too. Already thinking of next year.......

We immensely enjoyed the Christmas Package at Williams House! Our hostess, Veronica, went above and beyond making certain that everything was as near perfect as possible. The location in the Historic District is excellent, our room was impeccable and the breakfasts mouthwateringly delicious!

Another stellar experience. We came over the summer and loved it. We decided to book the Christmas package and again had a terrific experience. The Christmas package included tours and several evening meals at excellent restaurants. Veronica, as always, was a gracious and enjoyable hostess. She makes killer cookies! The staff was excellent. The rooms are safe, clean, and well-appointed. There are many B&B's in the area, but we see no reason to go anywhere else. We'll be returning......again.

Thank you so much for the great review. I so enjoyed being a part of your Christmas celebration this year and already looking forward to your next visit. I am thinking about adding an option for a van tour for the guests who struggle with mobility. So glad you loved the cookies! See you next time :)

The Williams House B&B, circa 1856 is a lovely house on a quiet street. The owner Veronica told us the fascinating history of the house. And how through the years it has been rebuilt to the lovely house it is now. Veronica has done much of the updating and her love for this is shown in every room. We were there only overnight to be at the jazz festival. It is centrally located and everything is close by, It’s a lovely area. The room we had was large and comfortable. Unfortunately we booked by accident the only room with its bathroom across the hall which was not a problem…. If you go, inquire as to en-suite bathroom…. Veronica served an amazing breakfast in the lovely dining room. I would high,y recommend this lovely B&B.

My wife and I recently visited the Williams House at Fernandina Beach FL and had a wonderful 3-day vacation. The Williams House is absolutely the best B&B I have stayed in throughout the world. Veronica made us feel very much at home and served unbelievable breakfast each morning. The house is conveniently located two blocks from downtown so walking everywhere is simply a pleasure. We really enjoyed spending both the mornings and evenings out on their delightful front porch. We cannot wait to return to see Veronica and family.

We had a wonderful experience at Williams House. The owner and hostess, Veronica, was gracious, personable, and informative. Her breakfast servings were outstanding and the presentations exceptional. We had three meals and they were different (and delicious) each time. Bravo !! She also always has fresh homemade cookies available right inside the front door of the main house. They were excellent. She also sits out a couple bottles of wine every evening to sip in the main house sitting room and mingle with other guests. Or you can take it out to the porch swing !! The room was clean and well-appointed. The staff serviced the room while we were at breakfast, so we always came back to a made bed, with any trash emptied. The Williams House is well located and within easy walking distance to the historic district. Many shops and restaraunts to choose from. Right across the street is the First Love microbrewery and besides good beer, they have outstanding pizza! Highly recommended. We will be back !!!
