Wonderful and well maintained B&B. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were visiting a good friend. The room was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Veronica the innkeeper was very welcoming and well versed in recommending dining and things to do. The breakfasts were outstanding. All dietary requirements were met. The fresh baked cookies were delicious and the wine in the parlor from 5-6 was a nice social time.
We loved everything about our stay. Veronica is a wonderful host. She was quick with suggestions, offered to help with reservations for dinner and just made our stay effortless. .The Inn is beautiful, room was clean and well appointed. The location is perfect -walking distance to historic area and short drive to anywhere else you want to go. Breakfast was delicious each day-creative and tasty. Everything just oozed southern charm, we’ll be back again for sure.
We wanted to explore Amelia Island on the way to our February destination in Florida and found Williams House on Trip Advisor. Fortunately a room was available and we spent the night there in King Ferdinand’s Royal Hideaway room. This house is beautifully preserved. The public areas are inviting and comfortable. The wine social hour complete with good wine and homemade cookies set things off to a comfortable stay. Veronica the host was so helpful throughout and included a list of her recommended restaurants. We chose David’s right next door and had a perfect dinner. Breakfast in the morning was outstanding and Veronica was kind to share the recipe of her cream eggs! Our only regret was not having another day or two to stay!
Great two night stay in this well appointed home: The breakfasts served on different china each day were exceptional; every detail was attended to i.e. tiny marshmallow packets for your hot chocolate with cookies always available; comfortable King and spacious room; inviting porch with a garden of labeled trees and herb planters. Veronica's energy is contagious with information about whatever your interest might be. David's down the street was a perfect dinner recommendation. The Williams House guests we chatted with were an unexpected plus. Amelia Island's history museum, Clinch Fort, a drive through Plantation, were perfectly wedded with staying at the Williams House.
My wife and I stayed for six nights at the Williams House in Amelia Island in early January, just after people visiting for the holidays had left. The weather was nice (we’re from the north) and there weren’t crowds. Plenty to do and see, absolutely outstanding restaurants, and an excellent chamber music concert. Good places to hike, museums and old civil war forts. Boat tours. You name it Probably the best part of our stay was the Williams House. We had a room in the newer building ("Memories"); spacious, light, super clean, well equipped, with a private and a public patio. The house was superbly decorated for the holidays. Everything you could want was there. Books, music, wine between 5 and 6 (and not the cheap stuff). Veronica is an excellent owner. Well organized, friendly but not intrusive and her breakfasts are really great. We highly recommend it, and can’t say enough good things about this place. If anyone is complaining, and wants to know what’s wrong, they need to look in the mirror.…
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Amelia Island Williams House. It is a very pleasant B&B and Veronica is a gracious excellent hostess. She and her staff definitely have the ticket for making her guests feel welcomed and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic and a wonderful way to start the day.
What an amazing piece of history, we had such a comfortable stay. The Williams House is a great spot. We were able to walk downtown and to a local brewery. Our room was the Egmont which had a ton of space and a courtyard view. The breakfast was so delicious, the manager was so welcoming, and she had great suggestions for dinner.
Was supposed to stay at this property for our anniversary on 11/10 into 11/11y. Hurricane came through and our flights were cancelled. We did not know until 11/9 flight was cancelled. Contacted Veronica who informed us we will still be charged for the room because the cancellation was less than 2 weeks. Asked if we could move our reservation to December and was told absolutely NOT. Veronica, who is the owner, was not at all concerned about how she made us feel about us missing our entire trip. Granted the storm was not her fault, nor ours; therefore, I feel as though a compromise should/could have been made. I suggested to that is she could find a slower time that would could possibly visit. The answer was NO . It was my hope we could come to an agreement; however, her responses, “I have a business to run, I own it, and I can make my own decisions. I agree with her on all of these statements. This is one of the reasons she should be more flexible, for HER BUSINESS!…
As this was my first Bed & Breakfast stay I had nothing to go on. Every other B&B now has to compete with The Williams House. We stayed in Chloes room..it is so pretty and charming. The local made hand soap and foot scrubs In the bath were wonderful...the location is perfect for walking into town for shopping and dining. Speaking of dinning, Veronica prepares the most delicious 5 star quality gourmet breakfast. It will rival the most expensive restaurants worldwide... I highly recommend this Inn. We will definitely return.
We have stayed at others in Fernandina Beach, but those days are gone, we have have found a home. Veronica, her son and her staff made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived on property. My wife and I were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary and we were greeted with champagne and treated to staying one of the finest houses on the island. You felt like you stepped back in time! We stayed in “Smugglers Cove” reflecting all of the charm and decor of the 1800’s but then also a huge screened in porch that you could have slept on! The House is epic, the service and amenities are top notch and you can just tell that there is a real connection between the House and its owner. Not just a business, it is a commitment based on the love and appreciation that Veronica has for the Williams House. And finally, not only does she make sure that you enjoy your stay in the home, but doubles down with the finest food that we have had on the island….what can I say? My wife and I honeymooned at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island and we were taken back to the food and the feeling of that fine establishment! Thank you so much Veronica!!!You have made us Williams House devotees!!!!!…
