What a great secret just North of Jacksonville. The home is gorgeous and you are treated "royally." We had a Christmas package and it was a delightful get away that nourished body and soul. We were greeted with a great tour of the house and a glass of champagne. The home was decorated with lights inside and out along with a beautiful Christmas tree that completes the Christmas Spirit. Myrta and Deb are fantastic owners. From the rooms to a 3 course menu for breakfast it is all fantastic. We are going to make a Christmas visit a family tradition.

I haven't even mentioned the pool, hot tub, carriage ride, "David's" and all the other extras that are offered. Plus, you are right next to the Historic District. It is like being welcomed into a very friendly family member's home. Put this one on your must do list.

Room Tip: We looked in several and it all depends on what you want. Nice pictures on the website.

This was our first visit to Amelia Island and staying at a B&B is our style. We decided to try Hoyt House after reading other reviews and just about memorizing their web site. We love old houses and the Inn met our expectations in all areas. Deborah and Myrta are the owners and they make every attempt to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They will mix with the guests or leave you alone however you like it to be.

The Inn is very well kept both inside and out. Superb location to the Historic District, local restaurants, shopping and just a few minutes drive to the beach.

The breakfast is all that it is advertised to be with a wide variety of choices, well prepared and we especially enjoyed the Sticky Buns that start off each morning the right way! Hey....you are on vacation! On Christmas Eve we went to David's Restaurant which is only a block away and enjoyed a delicious dinner in a beautiful setting with a jazz bar right off the dining room. Excellent food, service and entertainment. Deborah is the Chef at David's....named after her son I am told.

It was cool that weekend so we didn't use the pool or spa in the side yard but I am told others did. We met several nice couples during our stay and we always enjoy hearing where others have been and are going....part of the fun of a B&B we think.

We stayed in the Mizell room which is the largest room they have I believe. It was very nice, on the ground floor and well furnished. The bathroom has a jacuzzi tub. We also ordered in-room massages which Myrta arranged and the massage therapists who came were wonderful....a husband and wife team. Turns out the wife Heather graduated from the same univeristy as we did in Ohio.

Would we return again.....absolutely!

Room Tip: Mizell on the first floor was our choice and the best. There is a room upstairs with a fireplace I b...

From the time we stepped through the doors to the minute we left, my wife and I were well taken care of by Myrta and Deborah, the owners. The location of the property is convenient to local shops and restaurants, but once you get there, you'll find it hard to leave. The house was built in 1905 but has all the modern conveniences one would expect in a luxury accommodation. The room was spacious and the bedding was very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing and I will definitely be back for the eggs benedict. What a great place to get away from it all!!!

My husband and I celebrated his birthday with a week end stay at the Hoyt House. The house is beautiful and inviting and has a wonderful warmth about it. Our room (The Wells) had a huge king sized bed and was so comfortable and clean. The extras waiting in the room (apples, cookies & bottled water) were a nice treat! This inn is located in beautiful Historic Fernandina Beach, right on Center Street and you can walk to anywhere in town. The cooked to order breakfast was amazing, the fresh fruit & Eggs Benedict are a must!! Myrta and Deborah are wonderful Innkeepers and made us feel welcome. We will definitely be back again.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Hoyt House. I was concerned when we first arrived because the home is located on a busy corner, but once we entered the home the noise was not a problem. The location was actually great for walking to area restaurants and shops. We stayed in the Mizell room. The room was large and the bed was so comfortable! The pool area was so relaxing to sit at and just chill. I really wished I would have taken my bathing suit because even though the mornings were cool, the water in the afternoon was just right for a refreshing dip. Bikes are available to use and since the weather was beautiful, we rode down the road to Ft. Clinch and enjoyed riding around the grounds.
The breakfasts were phenomenal! It started with homemade sticky buns, then your choice of appetizer and main dish. Every thing we tried was delicious.
Myrta was very accommodating in helping us find restaurants and things to do. I would love to return someday and spend more time on that great porch swing!

We spent only one night at this bed and breakfast, unfortunately. If we are ever in this area again, we wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The owners, Myrta and Deborah, are the most gracious hostesses--they certainly know how to do things first class! The room we stayed in was lovely, the bed was beautifully appointed and, most important, comfortable.

We stayed in the master bedroom of the home which had a balcony which we enjoyed. The inn keepers have a talent and this b&b is there way of expressing it. I will go again to enjoy the experience. The breakfast by the way... don't think you can go somewhere else in town and get a better breakfast. Just stay put and enjoy. I guess if I had to wrap this up I would say I went to stay and enjoy the Hoyt house. Rather than i went and enjoyed Amelia island. Cheers
