Florida House is in a great location in the historical district within walking distance to everything. Very low key. There are a lot of great eateries around. The room was clean, and the inn was quaint. The breakfast was very tasty but get there early or later to avoid the crowd! This is the spot for a relaxing weekend getaway!

My wife and I stayed in room #9 for the weekend of the Fernandina Beach historic homes tour. The location of the Florida House is amazing - one block off Centre Street and well within walking distance of the homes on the tour and everything else we wanted to see within the historic district. Breakfast was included with the room...

Let me start by saying the locale, the grounds, the food and even the people at the Florida House in are all very charming and would have been worthy of Uber high marks. However, our room (room 12) was literally SO dirty and grungy it was hard to get past. The room itself was musky, literally had cob webs hanging...

We stayed at The Florida House Inn 23 and 24 years ago, had a great room and an awesome time. Returned this past week-end, 10/29 & 10/30/2016. The only room left when we booked was The Bridal Suite, Room 17. When we arrived we noticed an odor coming from the bathroom area. That odor continued the entire week-end. The odor...

We booked the room for a get away to celebrate our anniversary. The Florida House Inn was centrally located to things we wanted to do and see, Plus there were numerous dining options nearby. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and filling! Over all a very nice place to stay.

Originally we reserved this place for our daughter and soon to be son-in-law and we booked a beach front property for ourselves. Since they are young, they decided they wanted our beach place and we took the bed and breakfast.. (which we prefer the bed and breakfast) We got in around 7pm and our room keys were in an envelope...

We moved down south a year ago and had heard so much about Amelia Island that we took a weekend to see what it was like. We made reservations at the Florida House. The staff was very friendly. The room was spacious and clean. We stayed on the second floor overlooking the courtyard. The courtyard was very private and pretty....

My husband, daughter, and I recently stayed at Florida House Inn on a Saturday night. We found the building to be charming. Our room had a huge, very nice shower. Parking was convenient right behind the inn. The breakfast was great - biscuits with homemade jam, quiche, crispy sausage, fruit. But, the main drawback for us was the very loud...

We arrived on a Friday, parked directly in front of the inn and went in to register. Third Street is one-way, so you will have to come in from Centre Street vice Ash Street. After registration, we moved to the parking area behind the inn on 4th street. The building is lovely, historic, and charming. Registration was quick and easy....
