Me and my wife just recently got married at the Fairbanks House and we loved every minute of it. Theresa is an amazing soul and her husband is very kind. Me and my wife would recommend the elopement package, Theresa took care of everything and even booked things for us in advanced. It will say that there is a chance... More

First time ever at a B&B and it was a great experience. Bill and Theresa go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your trip. They scheduled all of our activities, upgraded our room for free, and brought dessert to our room every night. Very helpful and do not push themselves on you. Thanks for a great stay! We... More

My mom and I went to Amelia Island for a girls getaway and decided to try out a B&B. Fairbanks house won us over before the trip with their fabulous rooms that include rooms and cottages with more than one bed and the most wonderful inn keepers around. I called to book one night and was so impressed that I... More

Bill and Theresa are amazing hosts who truly love what they do. I think they remember every guest who has walked through the door, why they were visiting, and their favorite breakfast. The history of the building, the grounds, the decor - they really care about the details and want to make sure the house is true to its origins... More

We 3 women friends stayed for 3 nights in a cottage behind the "big house" and found it charming, clean, and thoughtfully equipped. There were plugs for all our devices, all the kitchen equipment worked, and the AC was comfortable despite hot weather. The hosts are friendly, funny, and very helpful in finding local resources. And what great food! Fairbanks... More

This was by far one of the best B&Bs we ever stayed in! What made it so fantastic were the fun, helpful and dynamic Innkeepers Bill & Theresa. They brought energy & fun, making our stay a positively memorable adventure. Definitely book your stay with them at this lovely Inn!!

Before I begin my detailed review of the FAIRBANKS HOUSE, I simply must thank Teresa and Bill, for making our wedding so magical and memorable. I just think about our experience and get goosebumps remembering our special day! It was just like a fairy tale without reading an actual book... just as if I was a little girl, and dreamed... More

This was my first experience with a bed and breakfast, and I could not have been more impressed or pleased with the experience my wife and I received at Fairbanks House. We arrived later than we intended, and after talking with both inkeepers during the course of the day, felt very welcomed despite not seeing them face to face the... More
