The Inn

About Our Amelia Island Inn

Featured in The Best Romantic Escapes in Florida and awarded membership in Select Registry for over twenty-five years, Fairbanks House aims to please.

The Property & Grounds

This 8,000 square feet 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 acre featuring native plants, palm trees, large oaks and a butterfly garden.


At our Amelia Island inn, it’s the scent of cinnamon orange pecan French toast with a caramel topping making its way through the mansion that will entice you out of our comfy beds each morning. Gourmet complimentary breakfasts can be enjoyed in our inn’s grand formal dining room or out on breezy piazzas by the pool garden where you’ll want to linger. We’re happy to accommodate special diets – just notify us when making your reservation.


Complimentary bikes, wifi, off-street parking, beach equipment, docking stations, games, reading materials, and many more top-notch amenities are always available but we are also at your service to make recommendations and reservations for a great Amelia Island experience.

Our Commitment to the Environment

Rob and Yvonne, the owners of The Fairbanks House go to great lengths to make sure that their practices are in keeping with what’s best for the environment without sacrificing an ounce of pampering for their guests.  Our most recent step is the addition of two electric car charging stations featuring both Tesla and universal chargers. We’ve detailed our approach if you’d like to see how we do things here at our Amelia Island inn.
