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

We have not tried a B&B for years, so it was great to be back. Theresa and Bill are great hosts, with a knack for stunning breakfasts. The place is a mansion - historically important to Fernandina Beach. It is sited beautifully, in the historic district, with a garden, and pool, and easy parking. My only hesitation is the age...

First off, the owners are honestly 2 of the most genuine, nice, beautiful people I have ever met! Thank you Bill & Teresa for taking such good care of us. My 3 girlfriends and I visited the Fairbanks house just this past weekend. What a cozy, homey place, decorated to the nine's and just plain perfect. Wish we could have... More

We stayed here in May for 5 nights after a road trip from Washington to here. We mostly stayed around the pool for the period and really enjoyed our stay. Especially the wine hour each evening where we loved chatting to all the guests. The breakfasts were lovely and very filling! We will return to Amelia island in a few... More

This was our first trip to Amelia Island. The owners, Bill & Theresa, are amazing as they go out of their way to ensure that each day is perfect. With recommendations of what to do and where to eat, and then making sure you have everything you need to enjoy yourself, there is not a detail that goes unattended. It... More
