This bed and breakfast is in a quiet area walking distance to all that the historic area of Fernandina Beach has to offer. The island is always friendly and laid back.
The Addison came highly recommended by friends in the Florida area. They had nothing but glowing comments so we thought we would give it a try.
The Addison did not disappoint. The rooms are very, very clean and have all the amenities one would expect but even better. The staff pays great attention to detail. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quite at night.
We had all the privacy we wanted or needed. It is a very quite inn even though they were full the entire weekend.
The food is wonderful. The owners pride themselves in their culinary skills. Breakfast is two courses and more than I could eat. Every morning is a taste bud's delight as is happy hour. Happy hour offers a nice light appetizer and wine or beer.
The owners and staff go to great lengths to make each guest feel welcome and relaxed. They have a concierge service available to help with reservations, beach items...etc... They are up on all the local attractions and make good suggestions for day and evening activities.
The only ding I will give them is the email after check out is obviously a standard form letter.The staff goes to such lengths to make you feel relaxed and welcome, like you are visiting friends but the email sent after check out is a form letter. The larger part of the letter asking for good reviews (which I would give them anyway). Sort of not in keeping with the rest of the atmosphere but, I brush this off as the busy life they have trying to run a successful B&B.
I would stay here on my next visit to the area and have already recommended it to friends.
