How do you even try to describe perfect? From the moment we arrived on the grounds we couldn’t stop smiling at just how gorgeous everything was. We stayed three nights for our secret elopement! Theresa and Bill made it so easy that all we really had to do is show up; every little thing was taken care of for us....

We had a sublime experience at the Fairbanks House. The beautiful historic house has many spaces to relax quietly or gather with other guests. Our stay in one of the cottages was warm and inviting, comfortably set in quiet historic district in walking distance to all the best and varied activities in our first trip to Fernandina Beach. Our hosts...

Very comfortable accommodations and everything was quiet enough in the morning to sleep in a little which almost never happens anywhere. The breakfast (included) was just wonderful and presented beautifully. The whole property was very very...

This was our first time staying at Fairbanks House- we've been retreating on Amelia Island for several years now- can't believe we've missed such a wonderful experience in staying with Theresa and Bill until now! The Library room was a good choice- first floor, corner room, comfy bed, roomy, fireplace. The hospitality is wonderful as you're welcomed warmly into this...

Extremely knowledgeable about the area. Always quick to be of service & make dinner or excursion reservations. The house & property are exquisite....

I can’t begin to explain how much my husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Fairbanks House. Theresa and Bill are absolutely wonderful hosts.

The personal touch abounds. 3. Spotlessly clean, well-appointed rooms offer comfort and convenience. 4. The innkeepers offer concierge services for diner reservations, tours, shopping ideas, and more. 5. Cozy robes are...
