Never in my 63 years have I experienced such a fabulous vacation. The home, filled with current and historical love, embraces you from arrival to departure. Exquisite food and accommodations. The history, shared by Maria, captivates your heart and mind forever.
I can pick a few things to pick on but I'm going to start by saying that it doesn't get better than this for travel during COVID. This. Place. Was. Immaculate. And Safe. The inn keepers were incredibly attentive to detail. WOW!! Our room was spotless. The distancing was perfect. The weekend was a sum of delightful moments: sipping a glass of happy hour wine on the front porch was divine. Biking to the Fort was incredible. The meal presentations were outstanding. The hot tub was such a luxury but the chemicals were strong and hard to take. There was a bit of street noise in our room. Those are the worst things i can say. Stay here.
The Williams House is a wonderful B&B located within walking distance of everything in the Fernandina Beach historic district. Parking is on a quiet street immediately in front of the inn. We chose the Princess Suite located on the 2nd floor at the front of the main house. It was spacious and quiet and had a private bathroom with a walk in shower. We especially enjoyed the outdoor balcony where we could enjoy the view and breezes while sitting on comfortable whicker furniture. There is complimentary wine from 5:00pm - 6:00pm where we met some new friends from the Orlando area. Chris and Maria provide not just great breakfasts, which were both very special, but a friendly and welcoming inn. The two breakfasts both included a choice of juices, coffee or tea, fresh fruit and delicious main courses. Everyone was socially distanced during the breakfast meal and masks are required. We walked to both of our dinner spots, David's which is a white tablecloth fine dining experience. Truly amazing and worth every penny. We also thought the thin crust pizza baked immediately across the street at First Love Brewing was top notch! We look forward to stopping by again soon.…
my husband surprised me for a long birthday weekend... chris and maria made everything so special... from champagne in our room when we arrived... the amazing homemade breakfasts each morning... the historical background about the house...the bikes at your disposal... recommendations on restaurants, shopping, and sight seeing.... even a legendary ghost story....to a personal conversation in the parlor when we departed... they made us feel so welcome ... we highly recommend you staying with them on your next trip to fernadina beach/amelia island!
Chris and Maria are amazing in all aspects. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave they take care of all your needs. The breakfast were meticulously home made and just delicious. No need for Lunch !! The house is charming and full of history "Ask Maria she will give an interesting history of the house and area" We stayed in the King size Master on the 2nd floor of the main house, the bathroom is across the hall and both were comfortable and well appointed. No need for a car everything is within walking or biking distance. Try the Decantery for great cocktails, and David's restaurant was impressive. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway ! Great Job to Chris and Maria, wish you both many blessings.
