Featured in The Best Romantic Escapes in Florida and awarded membership in Select Registry for thirteen consecutive years, Fairbanks House aims to please. This 8000 square foot 1885 Italianate villa is located in the historic district of Fernandina Beach, home of Amelia Island’s tours, attractions, shops and restaurants, and an easy bike ride to 13 miles of pristine beach. The mansion, three cottages and pool rest on an eco-friendly landscaped smoke-free acre featuring native plants and a butterfly garden.

Oversized rooms and suites – some with kitchens and multiple beds - are furnished with a blend of today’s comforts and yesterday’s beauty: king beds, flat panel televisions, coffee makers and antiques. Guest baths (all private ensuite) of this Amelia Island bed and breakfast offer showers and Jacuzzi or Victorian soaking tubs as well as earth-friendly amenities. Gourmet breakfasts and daily social hours with beverages and hot hors d’oeuvres can be enjoyed in our historic public rooms or piazzas by the garden where you’ll want to linger.
