We booked the "Smugglers Cove" room last Saturday. A beautiful historic house, but, alas, we arrived to discover that the room's bathroom had no door--only a transparent gauze curtain. The lack of a bathroom door seems like important information for a room booking for over $200/night, at least for those who don't fall in the category of smugglers, who may not concern themselves with such niceties. Luckily, another room was available, and we had a good stay in the "Santa Maria," in the building next door, with a nice upstairs front porch and a pleasant view of the shady street, and, as a sop to the conventional, a door to the bathroom.

The house is situated to provide a nice walk through the historic neighborhoods on the way to downtown Fernandina. Luigi's is nice place nearby to eat outside on a pleasant evening.

Another note for early risers and those who may prefer the option to have breakfast with "the one who brung them"---breakfast was served from 9-9:30 at each of two large tables. The breakfast and coffee were very good, but by the time it was served, we had already driven to the beach and been offered coffee and breakfast by two very friendly B and B innkeepers there, where breakfast was already available for guests, who were enjoying it on their own schedule and with the choice to eat in groups or on their own.

My wife and I spent 4 wonderful nights at the Williams House this month (at the same time as the honeymoon couple that just posted a review). We enjoyed our stay immensly.

We booked a beautifully appointed suite in the cottage, which was decorated in an Asian motiff. It was incredibly comfortable and relaxing. The 2nd floor porch off of our room overlooking the grand old live oak tree covered in Spanish moss was the perfect setting for our nightly happy hour.

The inn is beautifully kept and is decorated with an incredible collection of beautiful antiques. While the cottage we stayed in is charming, the main house is truly beautiful and impressive. The architecture is stunning and the building has been lovingly restored and maintained.

My wife and I operate a Victorian inn in Cape May, NJ (also a Select Registry inn), so we have a true appreciation for the beauty of this inn and quality of the accomodations that Byron and Deborah provide.

We recently stayed in the William's House on our honeymoon. The inn keepers were gracious and the home lovely. One of our favorite part was relaxing on the upper and lower porches. We took a nine mile bike ride out to a fort and over to the beach which is natural looking with dunes and all. Wear helmets if you want to ride on the trail while in the park. It was a nice change from the commercial beaches of South FL. At the inn keepers' recommendation we ate at the Beach Grill where we had a delicious and romantic dinner while listening to piano music. The carriage ride was a must, what a beautiful island! The city feels like a home not a tourist trap. You'll leave relaxed and yearning to return.

Fell in love with Amelia Island, thanks in large part to Deborah and Byron, owners/managers of this quaint, romantic getaway. Our accomodations were comfortable, clean, superbly furnished with fine antiques and a very, very comfortable King sized bed. The gas fireplace added warmth and ambience, the sitting room overlooking the gardens and fountain was delightful as was the quiet, private porch. Deborah proved to be a superb chef and each day at Five, she and Byron served up a most enjoyable "get together" with good wine, "eats", conversation and history about their unique home and Island. They recommended two fine restaurants for dinner (La Bodega & Espana) and then provided a couple of bicycles so we could work off a bit of what we packed on at supper. They're a wonderful couple, warm and helpful, and you can "feel" their commitment to making sure the Williams House maintains its standing as Amelia Island's premier Bed & Breakfast. Talk about good old "Southern Hospitality" . . . they seemed to have invented it. We'll likley be back later this year or early next and use it as our base of operations as we go hunting for our own little piece of paradise; a vacation home on the uncrowded beaches of Amelia Island. "Thanks Deborah and Byron - we'll see you again - real soon".
