I took my hubby for a surprise pre-anniversary stay. The Inn was very nice and clean. The details were great! The food was great! Thank you so much Theresa for being so accommodating, helpful and fun! We will definitely be back.

The Fairbanks Inn is 5 stars in all ways. We spent a week enjoying the inn and the area. Great breakfasts, beautiful comfortable room, gracious inn keepers who assist with plans, immaculate house situated within walking distance to a quaint town filled with quality restaurants, boat tours, carriage rides, and shops. Everything about our experience was perfect. The Innkeepers accommodated... More

Just the nicest people, full of humor, information, and hospitality. Happy Hour every evening was a lot of fun and a great chance to meet others with interesting stories and advice on where to go. Packages are great and the hosts/food couldn't be better.

We could not have had a better experience. We eloped on Dec 21 and stayed 3 nights in the Emerald Suite in the main house. Theresa handled everything. Our wedding pictures are awesome and the entire thing was completely stress free. We met interesting people at the happy hours and breakfasts. This was our first time at a bed and... More

My husband and I just got back from our anniversary/ babymoon weekend and we did not want to leave. Theresa and Bill were wonderful and a delight. The breakfast was wonderful and Theresa asked us at check in if there was anything we didn't eat so she could accommodate us. Social hour was great and we met great people, including... More

The owners are wonderful! The Inn is beautiful. The people you meet are interesting. This was a great experience. The only complaint we had was the food was minimal (cocktail hour) and odd (breakfast). I wish we would have asked about breakfast ahead of time, as maybe they would have fixed us something different (neither of us like hard-poached eggs).... More

girls weekend, stayed in a cottage which was beautifully decorated. visits to the jaw-dropping main house for meals or happy hour felt like visiting that great friend who you don't see often enough. Theresa and bill are the fabulous hosts, if Theresa ever gives up the B&B job, she would do well on the stand-up circuit!

Another year at Fairbanks House Bed & Breakfast (Fernandina Beach) and another precious memory made. As always, Bill, Theresa and staff took very good care of us - they always make us feel so special. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I can think of no other way to spend it! The pajama party/contest at the inn is a hoot... More

The food was AMAZING and we could never say enough about the hospitality of the host and hostess, Theresa and Bill. They made our wedding a special and wonderful memory we will have forever.

Theresa and Bill make staying at The Fairbanks House seem like a visit with friends or family members (ones you actually like). Theresa is a bundle of energy who frequently cracked us up with her one-liners, and Bill, while more sedate, is equally pleasant. Their personalities make staying at their B&B a truly wonderful experience. (Make sure you read the... More
