“Gorgeous 1st time B&B Experience”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Upon rolling into Fernandina Beach I was instantly captivated by the beautifully kept historic houses. The Addison House being one of them. Some of the charm of this place came from the original hardwood floors from the 1800's, the gorgeous courtyard, and the excellent landscaping and some of the charm came from the Innkeepers themselves. I will be choosing this place again instead of going with a standard chain hotel. You can't beat the food! Coming back in a couple months!

Room Tip: I stayed in room number 2 of the old main house. There are pictures on the website. loved it!

Price is $240-$260 a night. Rooms are nice, but not nearly as nice as comparable inns we have stayed at for the same price. Breakfast is OK. Heavy on sweets and carbs. OJ and grapefruit juice from the bottle - and not even good quality. Limited parking. Bob, one of the innkeepers is very nice.

Room Tip: Shop around. If you stay there, ask for a second story room away from Ash Street.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our room rates range from $185.00 to $290.00 per night and our main priority is to make your stay at the Addison an amazing experience. We have ample free and safe street-parking right in front of our inn as well as a driveway for guests to use. We squeeze fresh, beautiful oranges every day to offer the best orange juice you can get, and for those who don’t like orange juice, we offer a selection of cranberry, grapefruit, and apple juice. Our delicious breakfasts consist of fresh-baked goods, fruit, and a main entrée – alternating daily between savory and sweet. We always offer lighter choices and will customize your breakfast to meet any dietary requirements, food allergies, or anything that you don’t like to eat. We sincerely hope that you will try us again and take advantage of all of the complimentary extras that we offer like bicycles, beach gear, all-day baked goods, snacks, and beverages.

The Addison is a great facility in a great location in a great little town. The innkeepers are friendly. The breakfast is wonderful. The Addison can serve as your base to checkout both the town and the beach. Fort Clinch State Park is perfect for history (the fort), the beach, mountain biking, biking, and kayaking. The Inn has bicycles or bring your own. Bring or rent a kayak or paddleboard, the bay is great for both.

We had a wonderful stay at the Addison in early January. We loved the location, available bikes, delicious breakfasts and happy hour! Everyone is always willing to help in any way. We will definitely visit again!

There is not a lot more to be said. We stayed 2 nights in Jan. and found the location to be
very convenient, the rooms to be immaculate, the breakfast to be outstanding and the hosts
to be gracious. The old town main street and several excellent restaurants are within walking
distance. Get away from the hustle and bustle of I-95 and visit the Addison House. You will
be glad you did.

The Addison on Amelia Island offers absolutely every ingredient required to equal perfection: elegant yet cozy rooms, gourmet breakfasts, congenial hosts who become friends after first meeting, and 5pm happy hour guaranteed to generate stimulating conversation with fellow travellers.
I can't recommend the Inn highly enough!

Room Tip: Based on my several stays at the Inn, both alone and with my husband, every room is gorgeous!

We only live about 120 miles away, so this makes for a great weekend getaway. The town of Fernandina Beach is terrific, with great restaurants, fun shops, and a great selection of after dinner bars (most with live music), but the Addison makes it the perfect destination. The Inn is in a great location, and Bob and Shannon are the perfect hosts. The Inn and rooms are always immaculate, the breakfasts spectacular, and the Happy Hours a great way to enjoy time with Bob, Shannon and the other guests. If you are looking to try the Addison, you can rely on all of the information on the website, with its detailed description of rooms and locations within the property. There is much to do around town, and Bob and Shannon will assist you in making the most of your time there. Cannot imagine any way to make it a better experience - so we plan on coming back regularly!
