Island State of Mind

An Oasis in the Heart of the Historic District

The mansion, private cottages and pool rest on an eco-friendly landscaped smoke-free acre featuring Adirondack chairs, native plants, soaring Oaks, fifty-foot Magnolias, fragrant jasmine arbors 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. Gourmet breakfasts, daily social hours, and freshly baked cookies are meant to impress. Your innkeepers’ 21 years of ownership will elicit expert Amelia Island advice.
