Ricky and Tracey made our stay at their home most enjoyable. Location was excellent for walking to town for shopping, restaurants and live music at the local bars. Breakfast was superb especially the warm homemade blueberry scones and cold fresh fruit each morning. We also enjoyed taking a dip in the pool to cool off after site seeing during the day. Our room and the entire Inn, including the grounds, were exactly what the pictures showed. We intend to visit the Hoyt House again and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Amelia Island. Excellent stay because of Ricky and Tracey the owners and Inn Keepers!

Wonderful time. Rooms were neat and clean. Food was excellent. Owners very hands on and extremely friendly. We will be staying there again on our next trip. Wonderful amenities such as pool, spa, and bicycles For private use.

Best B&B in Florida!!! Ricky and Tracy were consummate hosts, seeing to our every need. Spot-on recommendation for dining, perfect for all occasions. We went here specifically to celebrate our 49th anniversary. So glad we spent it here at Hoyt House. Breakfast is amazing and sumptuous!! Loved it and we will be back.

We went to get away from the stress of our daily business, etc.. The Hoyt House B&B was perfect, nice rooms, service, pool, friendly staff and easy location for walking the historic down town of shops, pubs and food houses. Would recommend this to those to like B&B stays.
5 on August 15, 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Hoyt House!! Ricky and Tracey were the ultimate hosts. Superb breakfast offerings and a wine and cheese hour. They supply bikes to ride as well as towels for the beach. Definitely worth the visit and experience. We will be staying with them again.

I wanted some place special for my wife and I to celebrate our 3rd year anniversary and the Hoyt House Bed & Breakfast Inn on Amelia Island, Fl was just the place. A beautifully old home, richly restored. The rooms are beautiful with luxurious linens and cookies baked by the inn keeper- Tracey. The grounds of this home are beautiful. The pool area and hot tub were a wonderful end of the day treat under a stars and full moon night during our stay. Breakfasts are delicious and made to order from a menu of several selections. The prefect location within walking distance to several fine restaurants and many interesting shops. Ricky and Tracey were absolutely perfect hosts!! We look forward to one day returning soon.

Wonderful B&B. Close to everything. Fabulous breakfast. We will return soon.
5 on July 30, 2018
I can't say enough about Tracey & Ricky! I originally spoke with Tracey and told her we we're celebrating our anniversary and from there she did everything for us. Dinner reservations, cruise reservations, recommendations, spa information, and she new the area very well! The hospitality that we were shown was beyond amazing! And the food!!! Can't wait to visit again!

Over-sized bath towels, terry robes, overhead chandelier and a comfy bed!! From start to finish Hoyt House is a class act. Tracy and Randy are gracious hosts. I will return again and again to enjoy their hospitality!
5 on July 21, 2018
Tracey and Ricky were great hosts, the accommodations were superb and the breakfast hard to beat. The location is wonderful, right on Atlantic Avenue. We could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. And, the pool is a nice extra. Ricky, get some WD40. Your doors squeak!
5 on July 11, 2018
The Hoyt House lived up to our expectations with lovely accommodations in the Oliver Room. From our initial call to our sad goodbyes, Tracy and Ricky were gracious in every way! Our room was very spacious, beautifully decorated, well located away from the street noise and hugely convenient. Delicious warm cookies greeted us in our room at check-in with wine and cheese every night for cocktail hour. Tracy's culinary skills delighted us every morning and Ricky was as attentive as one could ask. This is so well located that you can walk to downtown AND be at the beach is just a few minutes. This was our first visit to Amelia Island from south Florida and we fell in love with the area. Large enough to give you options but small enough to be the quaint town of what most of Florida was in years gone by. We will return and will look forward to our next respite by the sea. Lots of belly rubs and kisses to Mr. B!

Great place, loved having the pool.
5 on June 16, 2018
The Hoyt House was a perfect getaway. Ricky and Tracey were excellent hosts who made us feel at home for our three night escape. The breakfast was wonderful. Their home was clean, up-to-date, spacious, and comfortable. An added bonus is that Hoyt House is easy walking distance from so many good restaurants. When we return to Amelia Island, we will definitely stay at Hoyt House again.
5 on June 14, 2018
Clean and good options for breakfast. Great decor.
5 on May 25, 2018
Stumbled onto this B&B on the internet looking for a layover to catch the ferry to Cumberland Island. Thrilled that we did. Outstanding beautiful old home, wonderfully restored. Perfect location on the edge of downtown with an easy walk to any restaurant or shop. Short bike ride to the beach or Fort Clinch State Park. And, just a few blocks from the Ferry. Enjoyed the hospitality and nicely shady front porch amongst stately old Live Oaks and Spanish moss.
4.2 on May 14, 2018
Classic front porch to relax and enjoy beautiful weather. Walking distance to fine restaurants and many unique shops. Roomy accommodations with in room baths. Fernandina Beach is a great area with Beach, fishing shopping, spas, dining, hiking and exploring.
5 on May 12, 2018
This trip was our second to this beautiful home located so conveniently and within walking distance to everything. The grounds of this home are so beautiful and serene. There’s a great pool area and a bubbling hot tub. We parked our car and forgot about it. Ricky and Tracey, the owners, are so warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. The furnishings in this home are from the period in which the home was built And there is a curiosity everywhere you look. The rooms are beautiful, with luxurious linens and cookies that Tracey bakes. This property is truly a gem and we will continue to go back. Ricky and Tracey really know hospitality.
4.6 on May 11, 2018
This B&B is a gorgeous, three story in the historical district of Fernandina Beach. Wrap around porch, pool and hot tub, and easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and the Marina. The rooms are finely appointed and very comfortable. Tracey and Ricky hold a happy hour nightly with cheese and wine in the pub area of the home. Your hosts are friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Breakfasts are delicious and made to order from a menu of several selections.
5 on May 07, 2018
We had to be out of our house a couple nights because of remodeling and decided to stay at the Hoyt House. Great decision. Our room was lovely, wine & cheese on the front porch very relaxing and the delicious breakfast (made to order) the best start to the day. Would recommend to those visiting as well as locals. Ricky & Tracy were perfect hosts!!
5 on May 04, 2018
We chose to reside at the Hoyt House for our daughter's weekend at the Ribault Club. Tracey and Rickey were the perfect hosts. The food, the rooms, etc were beyond expectations. The location is ideal for exploring downtown Fernandina.
5 on April 29, 2018
My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect. I really liked the close proximity to the downtown area...very easy walk.
5 on April 28, 2018
Our stay was awesome Ricky and Tracey made us feel like family they very gracious hosts,and Tracey can cook .
5 on April 17, 2018
Our stay was better than we could have expected, from the initial greeting and sign in, to our afternoon wine and cheese get together in the shared sitting areas, to our comfortable room, and then waking up to a pleasant and exceptional breakfast. We enjoyed the other guests, and our Host and Hostess helped us with decisions on what to do, and where to eat. Shops,restaraunts,walks through the Historic area, all within walking distance to the Historic Hoyt House. We enjoyed some quiet time by the pool. By far, the Hoyt House was one of the most beautifully decorated, furnished, and best Hosted B&Bs we have ever stayed at. We will return.
4.8 on April 17, 2018
Highly recommend this B&B. Tracy and Ricky were very accomodating. Short walk to historic homes, restaurants and riverfront.
5 on April 15, 2018
Took my parents here when visiting me in Savannah from the west coast. Had a great relaxing time. Ricky and Tracey were wonderful and accommodating hosts and the breakfasts were great. If Tracey serves the Lemon Pancakes be sure you try them! Wish I could recreate her recipe but after multiple failures I have given up and decided I'll just have to come visit them again.
5 on April 12, 2018
We had a great experience at the Hoyt House. Everything was perfect. It was walking distance to everything. Didn’t have to move the car once we arrived. I would recommend this place to anyone.
5 on April 08, 2018
Great experience with one exception: truck traffic at 3am carrying logs to the paper mill is really annoying
5 on April 07, 2018
Ricky and Tracy were so nice and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful and the bedroom was just beautiful! I will be back!
4.0 on April 06, 2018
We usually stay on the Plantation when visiting Amelia Island but with just my wife and I this visit we decided to stay at a B&B we've passed at least hundreds of times while coming to Fernandina. This was convenient since we spend a lot of time on Centre Street shopping and dining. The house was beautiful, our bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast every day was delicious. The hosts were very attentive and caring.
5 on March 14, 2018
HOYT HOUSE was charming. The owners were very personable and did everything they could to make us feel welcome. Our room had been totally redone and was lovely. Great shower with vanity area separate, which was equipped with a make-up mirror and antique stool. We were sorry we were only there for one night.
5 on March 13, 2018
We had the nicest stay at the Hoyt House and will definitely be going back; the breakfasts were amazing, and our room was beautiful with a brand new bathroom, totally renovated. We enjoyed talking to the hosts and have recommended this Inn to all of our friends and family. The bicycles on premises were convenient, and we went bicycling two days in the village, which is very quaint and has nice shops and a very good Coffee Shop. The Victorian homes on the side streets were historic and beautiful. We did not have a chance to enjoy the Hoyt House pool and hot tub yet they looked very inviting so we will check those out the next time? Double thumbs up!
5 on March 10, 2018
The Hoyt House was a lovely home. Unfortunately we could only stay 1 night. Ricky and Tracey are wonderful hosts. We had a very nice room, the breakfast was great, and they have a lovely pool area. We hope to return some day.
4.8 on March 03, 2018
I've been to nearly every B&B in the area and this place is just perfect. The beds are cozy, showers clean... the charm of the building just puts you at ease the moment you walk in. The owner knew us by name before checking in, he already had our keys ready and in the morning we had breakfast that was above and beyond any hotel or bed and breakfast I've been too. I visit the area often and have found the only B&B I'll be staying at from now on.
4.6 on March 03, 2018
We only stayed one night on our way to Savannah but were very happy that we chose the Hoyt House. Ricky and Tracey are very gracious hosts, providing great information on the area. Our room had just been renovated beautifully. The shower was especially nice with a hand held option. We enjoyed our breakfast, food was presented nicely and delicious. We would definitely recommend and were sorry we could not stay longer!
5 on March 02, 2018
You will be delighted at the fantastic hospitality and beauty of the B&B. The hosts are very welcoming and accommodating and the rooms are up class. We would stay anywhere else. No only is the home gorgeous but the location couldn't be better.
5 on February 26, 2018
We greatly enjoyed our visit to the Hoyt House lovely owners and lovely bed and breakfast you actually had a breakfast choice awesom House well done!
5 on February 26, 2018
Hoyt House is a quiet, relaxing B&B that is a perfect location for a weekend getaway! My husband and i could walk up and down the historic district, enjoy our coffee on the wrap around porch, and enjoyed a delicious breakfast prepared fresh for us! We will definitely be back to visit!
5 on February 14, 2018
Beautiful historic home with many interesting features displayed throughout. The owner went above & beyond to make us feel "at home". Would definitely stay again in warmer months when we can experience the pool and beautiful back yard!
5 on February 09, 2018
Tracey and her husband Ricky were the kindest, compastionate, and hospitable hosts. From the time I arrived till the time I left they were so very accommodating and gracious. They were very careful with my dietary needs, and made sure I was comfortbale during my entire stay. I arrived much earlier than check in but they were so very kind to take my luggage and put it in my room at the time of my arrival. I would never hesitate to stay there again, in fact I am now sort of hooked on B and B’s... Thank you both for a wonderful stay. And may I add that the sheets were the best ever. Never knew there could be a diffference in sheets. Risa
5 on February 06, 2018
I have always dreamed of staying at a B&B and the Hoyt House exceeded my dreams. The owners, Ricky & Tracey were very cordial and welcoming. The accommodations were superior. We will definitely spend more nights here!
5 on February 03, 2018
Hoyt House was a lovely place to stay. The accommodations were clean and inviting. The vintage character was well-maintained. It's difficult to find the right words to express how wonderful the owners were. From the greeting, to the late afternoon beverages in the beautiful bar room, to the most amazing breakfast, there is no better. Our daughter and her husband were originally going to stay, but the Army called and one went to Afghanistan while the other went to South Korea. We pray for the safety of our children, but are forever grateful to have stayed at the Hoyt House Bed & Breakfast Inn in their stead. We wish the owners the best and are truly grateful for a wonderful stay.

THis was our second visit and although it was freezing outside it was another really wonderful visit. Highly recommend.

Beautiful delicious breakfast close to downtown

Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful! The rooms and house were immaculate and cozy. The location was great, walking distance to most areas. Would definitely stay here again!
5 on December 25, 2017
Really enjoyed the Hoyt House. Apple cinnamon scones are with the price of stay but then you get full breakfast on top of the scones. Great location very easy walk all the way to the waterfront with loads of shopping in between. We will be back.
5 on December 13, 2017
My wife and I loved the Hoyt House from the time we arrived. The owners Rick and Tracy are very friendly and hospitable. They are true stewards of the Hoyt House. The rooms and house were very clean while being tastefully decorated for the holidays. The Hoyt House was a participant in the annual cookie tour and I'm proud to say that Tracy had the very best cookies on the tour. Every morning we were able to choose our breakfast which was very good! Make sure you meet up with Rick for the happy hour at the on site bar! The B&B is within walking distance to everything you need in the Historic District. We highly recommend the Hoyt House!
5 on December 01, 2017
We stayed at the Hoyt House for a week and found it to be exceptionally comfortable. Breakfast was delicious (especially loved those scones) Our room was beautiful and Tracy and Ricky met our every need! When we return to Amelia Island we will surely stay here again.
5 on November 15, 2017
Magnificent home, outstanding breakfast each morning, AND the delicious cookies in our room provided a wonderful late night snack!! Ricky and Tracey are phenomenal host - We look forward to planning another trip to the Hoyt House!!
5 on November 09, 2017
Perfect location for activities on the island. Of course, that's only important if you can push away from the breakfast table or get out of the comfortable beds! Gary & Annette
5 on November 06, 2017
The owners of the house are very friendly and welcoming. The location of this B&B is great for those wanting to see the sites the sites of Fernandina. The breakfast in the morning, is great.
4.4 on October 30, 2017
wonderful owners. very accommodating. Bikes are handy. Only thing we might suggest is a bit more presence of fresh fruit (My wife said, "after all it is in Florida"!) and better explanations and suggestion of what is "nearby". Thank you!
5 on October 27, 2017
Such a beautiful weekend! Tracey and Ricky are fantastic hosts and cooks, that also become friends during your stay. You are enveloped in warmth from the minute you step into their home!
5 on October 26, 2017
The Hoyt House was gorgeous and the service provided by Ricky and Tracey exceeded our expectations. The historic downtown area is steps away (lots of well maintained beautiful historic homes,fun shops and good restaurants) and the beach is within walking distance. Gives you a totally different perspective of Amelia Island. Can't wait to go back,
4.4 on October 19, 2017
very nice historic house. Complementary bar can be recommendet. Sorry for the traffic at the crossing besides the house.
5 on August 23, 2017
You know you've had a pleasant stay and enjoyed interacting with the B&B's owners when not even a power failure [FPL area issue--not HH's fault] at 2 a.m. and 90 degrees your first night puts a dent in your enjoyment. This lovely old manor conjures up welcome memories of other great B&Bs throughout the South; a little Old Florida here, a little low country there, even some Mississippi timelessness. Entering for the first time you whisper as there is an almost library feel to it. Furnishings are a collector's dream; the bath tub is so large & luxurious you wonder where all that hot water comes from. Trying to describe breakfast would need a spoiler alert. Location is good as it gets with pleasant walk distance to shops & best area restaurants. Our only regret is that our schedule did not allow for the English Tea experience, but suffice it to say we will not miss it when we return, gladly. Highest recommendation.
5 on August 21, 2017
We truly are looking forward to our next visit. There truly was so much to love. Amelia Island is a sleepy little beach town full of warm friendly people, fun things to do and great places to eat. The Hoyt House is the perfect home base from which to explore it all from. Our room couldn't have been more beautiful, the bed more comfortable, the breakfast are scrumptious. Ricky and Tracy welcomed us in, showed us around and made us feel at home from beginning to end. We left with wonderful memories and new friends.
4.8 on August 10, 2017
This is a beautiful B&B. Our room was decorated lovely, very clean, and with an extremely comfortable bed. The pool was a nice bonus that we don't usually find at B&B's. The owners were friendly and gracious hosts. The breakfast was delicious.
5 on August 07, 2017
We have stayed at many B&Bs. This one was special from the start. Ricky greeted us at the front door, showed us around the house and then to our room. The house, and rooms are beautiful. Every nook, wall and shelf display interesting treasures, many from the familie's world travels. Breakfast was delicious all 4 mornings and the sticky buns are beyond words. This bed and breakfast is located so that you can walk almost anywhere you will want to go. While the Hoyt House is everything one dreams of in a B&B the best part of the whole experience was getting to know Ricky and Tracy. They invite you into their home and treat you like a cherished guest. We relaxed, made great memories and went home having made new friends. We've already begun planning our next visit.
5 on August 04, 2017
My wife and I stayed one night and wished we had stayed one more. This was our first trip away from our son, and we are so glad we stayed here! We will be back!
5 on July 31, 2017
Tracey and Ricky were gracious hosts and attentive to detail. By the second morning, Ricky knew exactly how I take my tea and breakfast selections. Tracey was so helpful about the town and all the charm it has to offer. And the peach rose bouquet she chose (surprise gift from hubby) was so lovely! Thank you both for welcoming us into your gorgeous home! We can't wait to return!
4.8 on June 04, 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hoyt House and we would definitely recommend it. The location was great as we were able to walk everywhere. They also provided beach chairs and towels.. Each morning we were treated to the most delicious breakfast-especially loved the scones. On Sunday we really enjoyed High Tea. Our room was on the second floor, so I would recommend getting one on the first floor. Our room was very nice Gillis. Also look into booking into Cumberland Island when before you visit.
4.6 on May 28, 2017
Fantastic stay; the owners are so helpful and welcoming. They provided great recommendations for meals and made sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed spending an afternoon by the pool - not a soul around!
5 on May 17, 2017
Wonderful and relaxing.
5 on April 27, 2017
Everything from check in to check out, our hosts were outstanding. The home is beautiful, clean, quite and inviting. We had the most relaxing time. Being a care giver to my sister with stage 3C, I needed a peaceful weekend. Hoyt House Bed & Breakfast deliver this and more. I will recommend this B&B to everyone wanting to get away for the weekend to. Thank you for exceeding our expectations!!
5 on April 26, 2017
We were celebrating a friends 60th birthday. Tracey and Ricky went out of their way to make every perfect!! What a warm and loving couple!!! The breakfasts were delicious and we had the high tea which was amazing!! I would highly recommend staying at the inn and hope to be back again soon! Fernandina Beach is beautiful - quaint and peaceful. I had no idea that it had such a cute downtown - similar to Savannah - just smaller. I did a lot of research before deciding on the Hoyt House Inn and do not regret my decision. They have every amenity you need and then some!!!
5 on April 24, 2017
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hoyt House and would definitely recommend it. The location was great as we were able to walk everywhere. They also provided bikes and we road to Fort Clinch and had a fun day there. Each morning we were treated to the most delicious breakfast-especially loved the sticky buns and scones. Our room was on the side of the house away from the road which I would also recommend when booking.
5 on April 13, 2017
We had a most enjoyable stay here at the Hoyt House. Ricky and Tracey could not have been nicer. We loved our room, the Oliver, which is located on the first floor and away from traffic. Each morning we were treated to the most delicious breakfast. You cannot beat this location as we were able to walk everywhere and even took advantage of the bikes to ride to Fort Clinch and around town. If you are looking for a great escape we wold highly recommend your stay here!
4.8 on February 23, 2017
Wonderful and friendly hosts with welcoming demeanor. Many extras such as drinks during happy hour and scheduling of special events (carriage ride). Outdoor space is so inviting and the food was fabulous! Ricky and Tracey know how to make folks feel at home and pampered at the same time. Lovely time and we will go back when we have the opportunity. :-)
5 on February 06, 2017
What a lovely place to call home for a few days. Every detail is taken care of. Everywhere you look there is a surprise antique. We got lost in the luxurious king bed in the Hoyt room. The breakfast and English High Tea are scrumptious and prepared by Tracy with a mastered skill. Rickey and Tracy are the owners and the most caring, warm friendly people. We came as guests and left as friends.
4.4 on January 05, 2017
The Hoyt House B&B's location is perfect for exploring Amelia Island and being close to wonderful eateries. However, their breakfasts are 4-star.
4.8 on January 04, 2017
As soon as our eyes beheld the magnificence of this 3 story Historic BB, we knew chose the best stay for our 36the wedding anniversary! The new owners, Ricky & Tacie and their 10 year old son, Alex, added to the Christmas charm and personity of this 10 spacious room inn, including a beautiful heated pool and hot tub of which we took full advantage of! The English high tea at 1:30pm was a delicious highlight! The on-site open free bar from 4:30-5:30 was quaint, cozy and fun! The wrap around porch with cozy Victorian and antiques decore with fliers and ferns made our visit outside special! We will return! The owners know how to host a BB and the food is delicious!
5 on January 01, 2017
We came down for our honeymoon and absolutely loved staying here. The location is great. Rickey and Tracey were awesome!! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We plan on coming back every year until we've stayed in all the rooms.
5 on November 17, 2016
We stayed at the Hoyt House for a quick weekend trip to Amelia Island. We enjoyed our stay and will stay at the property again on our next trip. The room was nice and clean and the food was good. It is close to everything in Fernandina Beach and there is no need to drive unless you want to go to the beach. Overall an excellent experience.
4.6 on October 30, 2016
My bride and I spent our wedding night at the Hoyt House. We got in late and had to leave early so we weren't able to sample all the amenities but the room was charming and comfortable. The complimentary made-to-order breakfast was amazing! If you're looking for old-time charm on Amelia, look at the Hoyt House.
5 on September 07, 2016
Every detail was tended to. From the moment we pulled up to the time we departed, we were treated with warmth and were beyond content with our stay. This home is gorgeous, and the staff goes out of their way to please you. It's close to many shops and restaurants, and the breakfast is to die for.
5 on July 28, 2016
The entire experience was wonderful.
5 on July 19, 2016
What a great stay. Wonderful property with great management. Strongly recommend staying at the Hoyt House.
4.4 on July 13, 2016
Great time at the Hoyt House....it is a beautiful home. We were warmly welcomed and our room was very comfortable...the bed was great! Bath was a little small, but that is how it is in old homes. The pool is beautiful - and we enjoyed floating after dark on the floats and watching the stars. Myrta was beyond welcoming and friendly - and the breakfasts were amazing. We loved all the treat beforehand, and ordering off the menu was great. And...STICKY BUNS....wonderful! Will be sure to stay again if we find ourselves on Amelia Island. Oh...and the bikes were a plus...easy ride to the beach!
5 on July 11, 2016
We stayed over 4th of July. Everything perfect from our room (#6 Willis), to the pool,hot tub/grounds, the delicious, beautifully presented breakfast (oh, that sticky bun!!), happy hour with other guests and the nicest hostess ever, Myrta. We took advantage of the provided beach towels/chairs/umbrella/boogie boards for the beach one morning and were able to walk to the shops, restaurants and fireworks. Wonderful experience!!
3.4 on June 21, 2016
Had a lovely stay. Nice pool and breakfast but after researching a little further found there are many other places in the area that look just as nice at a lower price point. Location was withing walking distance to all shops and many nice restaurants.
5 on June 20, 2016
My husband and I stayed overnight at the Hoyt House for an impromptu celebration of our 11th wedding anniversary. This B&B completely exceeded our expectations. The entire property is quaint, historic, and central to the historic downtown of Fernandina Beach. Our room was spacious and clean. Cookies were waiting in our room as a welcome. The "happy hour" social gathering was a very cool way to meet other guests and talk with Innkeeper Myrta. Innkeeper Myrta was absolutely fantastic and very hospitable. The breakfast was a traditional B&B breakfast, very good, and is located in a very quaint dining room of the house. We loved our one night so much we came back a month later for 3 nights!
4.6 on June 13, 2016
We enjoyed everything about the Hoyt house. It was right there at the shopping/dinning . Breakfast was made to order,the sticky bun is to die for! They have bikes for guest as there are awesome bike trails on the island. The have a small private bar that opens in the afternoon and is a great way to meet the other guest. the pool area is so beautiful we chose to stay there over the beach!! We don't often go to the same place twice but we might just have to stay at the Hoyt house again! Ps As we are early risers we were never bothered by the trucks,it's just part of the town. But we never heard them after dark or before 7ish .
4.6 on May 19, 2016
The experience was one we will never forget. The house and gardens were beautiful. We exchanged wedding vows at the gazebo. The staff was very friendly and made all the wedding arrangements. Very glad we chose The Hoyt House to make our dreams come true. Debbie and William

We stayed at the Hoyt House for 2 nights during the recent Shrimp Festival. This B&B is really wonderful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very clean and comfortable, including the snuggly cotton robes. There is a beautiful pool that we enjoyed as well. They have 3 pups who are immaculate and very well behaved, that you may get to enjoy. All in all a great weekend and great B&B.
4.4 on May 02, 2016
Absolutely wonderful B&B, it is so quiet and clean. The innkeeper Myrta was very helpful and the staff was very accommodating. If you are in Fernandian Beach Fl this is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are very spacious, quiet and clean. They have a wonderful pool and spa. The inn is very relaxing. Will stay there again in the future.
5 on April 28, 2016
Perfect stay!!! Thank you for everything. Will recommend and be back! Joan and Glenn
5 on April 22, 2016
My husband and I stayed at this fabulous B&B for one night. We enjoyed the bar area and the complimentary cocktails! The room and inn were very clean, bed linens soft and comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!
4.6 on April 21, 2016
We love going to Hoyt House and have been several times over the last 4 years. We always enjoy the guest cocktail reception hour- we would love it if they still had the cheese/ fruit available also. There is ample popcorn freshly popped and usually a fresh made cake always out and accessible- also a nice munchies basket. Arrival day cookies delish! Breakfasts are amazing! Like the new set up of fruit/ granola/ yogurt buffet in addition to made to order entrees. The delectable sticky bun never disappoints!

This was perhaps the best B & B we've ever stayed in! Everything was perfect! Joan and Glenn

Our second visit and both have been excellent .

Exceptional service in a beautiful B&B. The owners have paid great attention to detail. Wonderful breakfasts and cocktail hour included. Great location, walking distance to shops and restaurants, Stayed in the Charles room and it was perfect. Can make a small office space to work if you desire. Coffee maker outside the room. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc. available. Parking (which is a big plus). Top notch!
5 on March 19, 2016
This is a wonderful B & B. Myers and Deborah have made an inviting and welcoming home to overnight at. The amenities are fabulous and their breakfast, especially the sticky buns is delicious. A return visit will definitely be in our trip planning.

We stayed at The Hoyt House on Amelia Island,Florida for one week and wished it was longer. It was advertised as "A luxury Inn" and that it was. My wife and I have stayed at numerous B & B's throughout the US and Europe and have never had a better experience.Where do I begin: within a 2 minute walk to downtown featuring 25-30 restaurants and wonderful boutiques,a staff catering to the very smallest detail,amazing breakfast and cocktail hour in their English Pub,beautiful pool and spa not to mention the gorgeous restoration and furnishing of the Hoyt House. This is definitely a high recommendation site.

My only suggestion would be to add variety to the Keurig selections. I like strong coffee, so loved the French press offered at breakfast, however, one cup just doesn't do it!
4.2 on March 03, 2016
Very nice B&B. High Tea/English Tea was excellent. Room was very nice.....bathroom was very tiny! It is right on the edge of main street in town so location is perfect to walk to everything. Inn Keepers were very nice, friendly and even hosted a happy hour at their bar. Breakfast was great....much better than most B&B's we have experienced Many selections to choose from. I would go back again. If you do go, make a reservation for dinner...as restaurants are very busy.
5 on March 03, 2016
This was the perfect mix of luxury and laid back. The property and inn keepers went above and beyond to welcome and spoil us. I could have stayed forever and will be back! Glad I live close!
5 on February 29, 2016
Wonderful experience. Will recommend to friends and relatives and will consider coming back myself ( even though I live in Yulee )

Met several friends in Fernandina to celebrate my wife's Birthday. 3 of the 5 couples stayed at the Hoyt House. Our host helped make it a Birthday to remember!

I really enjoyed the Hoyt House. The hospitality was wonderful and the room and house were very clean. However, if I am being honest, I did think the prices were quite high.

Lovely B&B full of historic charm. Extremely comfortable bed with luxurious linens. Ask for room away from Main Street as truck traffic somewhat noisy.

outstanding service, comfortable accommodations, convenient to restaurants and beach.

unfortunately we could only spend a night in this lovely inn. Clean, comfortable and welcoming, the Hoyt House is set in the beautiful historic area of big trees and lush plantings. There are many good places to eat within four or give blocks and the villiage is very pleasing just to stroll around in. The Inn features beautiful spaces and porches for sitting and a nice little bar for conversations and a glass of wine in the evening. The inkeepers are warm, efficient, informative and friendly Rooms are adequite in size, warmly decorated and comfortable. Baths are about as good as you get in a Victorian structure. About the only drawback is the traffic on the nearby streets, but inkeepers have invested in many noise-reducing features. The breakfast was fantastic, We are looking forward to returning to this beautiful spot.

Great b&b experience

We enjoyed it. The only down side was the noise of the lumber trucks on the road right outside our window all night long.
3.6 on November 24, 2015
We enjoyed the stay. The only down side was the traffic. The lumber trucks going by all hours of the day & night. Would I stay again? Yes, but I would ask for a room on the pool side.

We had a fantastic time at the Hoyt House. We loved everything from the bikes to the pool and spa to the bar and happy hour. It made our short stay amazing. Thank you to the staff and owners!

We recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at the Hoyt House and the entire experience greatly exceeded all our expectations.This was our first visit to Amelia Island and it definitely will not be our last. The Hoyt House will be always be our first choice for accommodations.
5 on November 02, 2015
My wife and I were looking for a romantic place to celebrate our anniversary and I stumbled upon the Hoyt House in Amelia Island. We had never stayed at a B&B before, so we were a little nervous, but after reading the reviews we decided to give it a try. Let me tell you, we were THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED!!! As someone who works in the hotel industry, I can be pretty particular about were I stay. The staff and accommodations at the property well exceeded my expectations. The location was perfect and allowed us to take a quick walk to all of the fun downtown, but also be close enough to take a short bike ride to the beach. The room was perfect. We needed a room that was pet friendly and the one they had made our dog's visit as enjoyable as ours. The breakfast and complimentary drink were both much better than expected as well. But the one thing that truly made the stay special was the quality of the staff. Everyone was so nice and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely be going back!!!
5 on October 15, 2015
Even though we were only there for one night, it was excellent! Cannot wait to go back!
3.6 on October 11, 2015
The Hoyt House was a beautifully kept bed and breakfast. The staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating. The breakfast was one of the best at any bed and breakfast that we have stayed. We hope to go back soon!
4.2 on October 04, 2015
David's, Joe Bistro and Lulu's are all most go to restaurants. Convenient location to a lot of different activities. Staff was always friendly and extremely helpful. Happy hour is a must do.

We rented the entire house for the weekend. Staff was friendly and helpful. This is very old and beautiful house that is very cozy and my guest had marvelous time. Great location so we could walk everywhere we need to go. Thanks again Deb and Myrta.

True Southern hospitality. Warm, comfortable beyond words. Close to shops, dining, entertainment. This is a jewel in Northern Florida.
5 on September 08, 2015
Myta, Deborah and staff were so pleasant. Upon check in we had a nice tour of the property and they showed us to our room just like a luxury hotel. They have a nice happy hour from 4:30-5:00 with free popcorn. The breakfast was freat with nice choices of items. They have a lot of extra things like beach chairs, umbrellas and towels for your trip to the beach along with snacks. Theri pool area is awesome as we really relaxed and had a great time meeting other guests. They are pet friendly and people friendly as well. Couldn't have asked for a better 2 days and we will visit again. Wish these ladies all the luck in the world as they run a first class place.
5 on September 02, 2015
So many amenities: European 600 thread count sheets, a choice of six gourmet breakfasts, bicycles, 100! live oaks with Spanish moss dripping from them, onsite parking, extra bathroom items including special soaps, front porch with a romantic swing, large computer for public use, and most of all the young women who worked in the B&B were so friendly and helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Located in a very convenient location. You could walk to all the shops. Lots of restaurants were close by also. Enjoyed our breakfast with other guests. They served delicious fresh baked cookies. Provided snacks and drinks.

Recently stayed the weekend at the Hoyt House. Everything exceeded our expectations. Great location, right next to the historic downtown district. Everything is within walking distance. The whole house was great and we really enjoyed our room. Breakfast was outstanding and the staff were all great. Would highly recommend staying here.

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at the Hoyt House. It was the perfect location for a very special day. Gina made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We will definitely make plans to return! Thank you Hoyt House staff and owners for a memorable stay.
5 on June 10, 2015
Myrta and Deborah, the owners, are friendly wonderful people. They and their staff insured all of our needs were met and exceeded. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious! We enjoyed coming home to such a beautiful interior and relaxing in their beautifully lush gardens by their immaculate pool and spa. This is a must if you're looking into Amelia Island.
5 on May 26, 2015
Wonderful B&B! Perfect in all areas - it far exceeded our expectations!
5 on May 21, 2015
This place and the staff left us wanting nothing. No detail no matter how small was missed. Comfy bed and bedding I large newly done room #6, large idyllic porch, clean clean clean. Luscious pool and grounds. And a breakfast that, well, was just amazing. Friendly owner who is having a lot of fun making us comfortable. This place is a destination in and of itself. Well done!!!!
4.6 on May 13, 2015
Despite being an old victorian house in many respects, the bedroom we chose had modern decor and bath with a rain-shower. What a delight. Also, delightful was the private outside pool and hot tub It was very accommodating on a warm summer night (May in Florida is summer!). We loved having a special order breakfast with a few of the other guests. Also, sipping our drinks on the wrapped porch was relaxing and enhanced by the large landscaped front yard which led to the main street of Fernandina Breach where you could easily walk to shops. . But what was most delightful was the attention and service of the owner/manager of the House. Besides having a happy and playful demeanor, she ensured our stay exceeded our expectations including getting a refund from a restaurant which she recommended but did not perform to our and her expectations.
5 on April 22, 2015
The bed was comfy…the home was beautiful and my favorite parts were cocktail hour getting to know the inn keeper Marta and breakfast in a beautiful dining room, while eating off fine china in a sun filled room…so relaxing!
5 on April 20, 2015
Looking for a relaxing getaway? Amelia Island is a small town with great shopping, food, and beautiful historic sites. Most everything is w/in walking distance of the Hoyt House. The only time we had to drive was for the beach which was 5-10 minutes away. Now...the home. My word could it be any more beautiful. The staff was fabulous and the owners treated you as if they have known you forever. Their dogs are always at the house and are absolutely lovely. I did not want to leave. It was like a home away from home BUT better!
3.2 on April 08, 2015
Our stay was a gift from one of children and we chose to stay on my birthday. I selected the Katie study after reviewing all the rooms on the website. When we arrived to check in I was informed I had gotten an "upgrade". I am not sure I truly got an upgrade and my heart was set on the room I had selected. The room I received was nice but I was disappointed I was not notified before I arrived. Also if you are not comfortable with pets in the home be aware the owners have 3 dogs who did bark some. Breakfast was very nice and served well. I would recommend the Hoyt House.
Thank you for taking the time to review our B & B. I was not aware you were unhappy with the room. I would have been more than happy to place you in the original room you selected. It was an upgrade from a queen size bed and a bathroom with a stand-up shower to our largest, (twice the size) and our most expensive room, at no additional charge with a king bed, corner room, overlooking the outdoor pool & hot tub, full size couch, desk, chair with ottoman, 40" flat screen TV on the wall and an oversized jetted tub & shower combination. We upgraded you to a king room that day since it was mid-week and we had the availability and thought it would be a nice birthday surprise. We thought you might enjoy the extra space and I do apologize we did not exceed your expectation.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to get a room at the Hoyt House for the 2015 Concours de Elegance after someone cancelled! I must admit tit wasn't my top choice but I was so wrong! This was by far the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. The personal touches, the treatment of all guests like they were VIPs, the food, the accommodations...everything was outstanding! We loved it so much we reserved a room for 2016 already! We highly recommend Hoyt House!
4.8 on April 06, 2015
Owners are wonderful, the 110 year old inn is gorgeous and maintained in great traditonal style. Breakfasts are made-to-order and are delicious. Shopping in the historic district of Fernandina Beach is right next door. Nearby beaches are fabulous.
5 on April 02, 2015
We really enjoyed our time at the Hoyt House. The house is immaculate and the service is tops. I would love to stay in the rest of the rooms. They have done an excellent job.
5 on March 25, 2015
The property is beautiful and the innkeepers are very helpful. They recommended very good activities that we could do with our dog around, and when I asked them to place chocolate covered strawberries in our room at a specific time, the timing was perfect and the strawberries were delicious. The only criticism I have is that while they allow dogs in two or three of their rooms, dogs are not allowed in the swimming pool area. While I understand why they might want to do that, it was disappointing nonetheless! I highly recommend this bnb. Just bring a crate with you if you have a pet and want to enjoy the hot tub and the swimming pool.
5 on March 23, 2015
My best friend and I stayed at the Hoyt House for a girls weekend. Neither of us have ever stayed at a Bed and Breakfast but were excited after reading great reviews! Everyone was very welcoming and the house was amazing. They truly have thought of everything. From the umbrella by the door to the sound dohm in our room, everything (and more) that we needed was there. Breakfast was amazing as well. Our stay was a great experience and I can't wait to go back with my husband!
5 on March 16, 2015
Our stay at Hoyt House was far better than our expectations. Deborah and Myrta are very personable hostesses and promptly and happily attended to all of our needs. We loved our time spent with them over a glass of wine. The breakfast was delicious! Lots of information was passed on to us about sightseeing activities in town, but lounging around the pool or one of the beautiful sitting rooms was an excellent way to spend our time at Hoyt House. We definitely will visit again.
5 on February 24, 2015
Excellent B & B; can't wait to go back! Everything has been thought of, including snacks, complimentary glass of wine, bottled water, use of the refrigerator, coffee 24/7, and more! Very comfortable bedding and wonderful breakfasts. Owners are great!

The home is beautiful and the pool area is an oasis. The innkeepers are very friendly and helpful and happy hour is a great way to meet other guests. Our room was very pretty and comfortable with excellent bedding. Breakfast provided more options than you would normally get at a B&B and we appreciated the extras at the side bar. Loved the porch and the easy walk to some great restaurants.Would definitely stay here again.
5 on January 26, 2015
I was planning a girls trip for me & my friend. The Hoyt House exceeded our expectations. We had such a great time. Myrta was such a gracious host. She gave us lots of pointers on what to do & where to eat. I would definitely recommend staying in this beautiful home.

Best kept secret for those seeking slower pace and "old Florida" style. Very personable owners/staff, who make every effort to keep you coming back! We' have been returning for several years now; something new to experience each time.

The Hoyt House was an exceptional B&B. I have stayed at many other hotels and this one ranks among the best. The breakfast was outstanding. The bed was cozy and the location was unbeatable.
5 on November 10, 2014
I have to say when reading the reviews of The Hoyt House, I was excited for our stay, and it exceeded all of our expectations. The staff was attentive, sweet, and accommodating. The rooms were perfect, as well as the amenities (Pool, hot tub, bikes) ect. Every little detail went into making sure each guest felt welcomed and relaxed. The location was perfect as well, as you could walk or bike to the downtown area, and it was a short car trip to the beach. We will definitely be coming back!
5 on October 30, 2014
The house is beautiful and just a short walk from restaurants. The room was fantastic and the service impeccable. We were very pleased with the extras we asked for. One word about breakfast: AWESOME!
5 on October 30, 2014
Had a wonderful time. Restaurant recommendations were fantastic. Breakfast was to die for. Would definitely stay again.
5 on October 27, 2014
We went for a one night get-a-way and had a wonderful time at The Hoyt House. We were immediately welcomed into the beautiful home. The ambiance is wonderful and so relaxing. The porch is gorgeous, the rooms were beautifully decorated, with comfy beds and linens. Tremendous attention to detail. We were treated like welcomed and long lost friends. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
5 on September 18, 2014
What a lovely stay a the Hoyt House! We have stayed in B&Bs in Beaufort, Savannah, Charleston and St. Augustine, and this is by far the best. Clean, cool, updated, great location and delicious cookies, breakfast and coffee. We biked around the beautiful town and to the beach. Enjoyed the large veranda to sit and enjoy the complimentary glass of wine, while watching a wedding take place at the beautiful church across the street! I can't wait to come back!
5 on September 15, 2014
My husband and I stayed for one night for a mini vacation. We loved the house, it was so cute and cozy. There were so many activities-we wished we were there longer to enjoy them (bicycles, pool, DVD library). The breakfast was very good also. The location couldn't have been better, walking distance to the downtown area. We loved our stay!
4.8 on September 04, 2014
The owners Myrta and Deb were so extremely inviting. The room was pictured, though they moved us from the particular one that I would have wanted to stay in, the Alden, to Lara's room. I was a little disappointed at the last change in plans because I really wanted to stay in the Alden. Lara's room was beautiful in its own way. The products in the bathroom were very luxurious. The only frustrating thing is that there seemed to be an electronic alarm clock going on continuously. The only reason I heard it because I turned off this white noise machine that was in the room. The breakfast was A+ with everything fresh and flavorful. The grapefruit juice was fresh squeezed, who does that anymore?? LOVED the pool area and the privacy, plus the close proximity to all Fernandina has to offer. We will definitely stay here again, esp if my parents come to visit.
3.8 on August 27, 2014
I really enjoyed the Hoyt House. There were somemonor things I would have liked a little different but that is not about the B & B but more of my desires. The pool was the greatest.
5 on July 31, 2014
Myrta and Deborah are great hostesses. We felt as though we were at home and felt guilty having them wait on us. Our room was really comfortable and cozy. The Hoyt House is clean, the service is great and it is on the edge of downtown Fernandina with its shopping and great restaurants. Only minutes from the beach.
5 on July 17, 2014
We had an absolutely wonderful weekend getaway at the Hoyt House. Myrta and Deborah are fantastic people. Very attentive to detail, cordial, helpful, and a wealth of information. The room was beautiful and the breakfasts were amazing. They spoiled me of ever staying at a conventional hotel again. Erin and Zane
4.8 on July 15, 2014
We had an amazing time at the Hoyt House! It was a very charming bed and breakfast. The service was impeccable, the house was clean and quiet, and the breakfast was outstanding! I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to others.

A wonderful stay in an architecturally beautiful B&B with impeccable service, perfect atmosphere, marvelous tea and breakfast. Will definitely go again.
5 on June 29, 2014
Home away from home is the way I can sum up our stay. We make annual trips to Fernandina and have stayed at a different B&B. We are already planning our next visit and we are set to return to Hoyt house. Breakfasts are great a good selection from fresh fruit to the chefs special. Need insight on a place to eat Myrta will gladly fill you in and take care of the reservations. This past trip was my wife's birthday and Myrta took the time from her busy schedule to go to the local bakery and pick up a small cake that we got to enjoy with candles and all. The pool area is very relaxing as was sitting on the front porch drinking a glass of wine. The nightly happy hour gave us an opportunity to mingle with some of the guest and share stories of our day. It also was fun coming up with different Rum drink recipes. We are looking forward to coming back and would definitely recommend the Hoyt house.

Myrta the hostess was awesome. Such a neat place to stay. The room was very nice the linen was pristine. It was nice to recieve individual attention from Myrta. The Inn made me feel at home and the decor was antique. By far one of the best places that I have stayed. It was a very enjoyable stay and I will stay there again.
3.6 on June 09, 2014
The house and grounds were beautiful, and beautifully maintained. The location was within walking distance to a great deal of shops, dining, etc, however, that made from some street noise. They did have a white noise machine, which was very helpful. The food was plentiful and good, but not spectacular. The service and cleanliness was outstanding. Overall, for the price, I think with taxes around $260/night, I would have expected a better quality bed. I was not able to sleep much at all, because it was very soft and clearly old. I would have expected better food for the price of a night's stay, as well. Excellent for under $200, okay for the price paid.
5 on June 02, 2014
My husband and I recently took a quick trip up to Amelia Island to decompress for a few days. We chose the Hoyt House because it just seemed like our style and boy, were we right on the money! It is a beautiful home in the historic area, close to everything. We were so comfortable there we felt we should have planned to stay much longer! (The bed was heavenly too.)
4.6 on May 23, 2014
Wonderful experience. Friendly staff, beautiful rooms and house as a whole, very homey feel and within walking distance to old town. Will be staying there again.

Great location, nice grounds, very pleasant staff, very nice stay and breakfast.
5 on April 28, 2014
This is one of the nicest B&B Inns we have stayed in. The innkeepers go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and have thought of all the extras. From the cozy bar to the well-decorated rooms to the pool and porch swing, this is an inn well worth visiting. We have visited three times and will be returning.
4.4 on April 18, 2014
The house, the feel, the breakfasts, the hospitality, the pool area and most of all Myrta and Deborah made our time at the Hoyt House memorable, relaxing and the perfect place to rest, relax and enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. Thank you for opening your home and your lives to us and reminding us frequently to "Relax, you are on vacation."
3.2 on April 18, 2014
The food was good and well prepared. It was nice to have choices at breakfast. The location of the house was very convenient to shops and restaurants and the beach. The pool area was a pleasant place to relax in the nice spring weather. The rooms were nicely decorated; the front porch was wonderful to sit and read. Several times we were surprised at the tone of a response to a guest--being told to wait until later for breakfast for a space to open up. There were many open spaces (4 of 8 in use) at a large table--just no place settings and it was only 9am. We had been told breakfast would be from 8:30 until 10 with no aforementioned restrictions such as not being seated by other people.
5 on April 05, 2014
Incredible staff, great food, more than accommodating! They made our wedding truly special. Would recommend them to anyone looking for outstanding service at a tremendous value.
4.6 on March 14, 2014
My wife and I have stayed at Hoyt house on three occasions and enjoyed all of them. The effort to please and make you stay is commendable and above average. Would highly recommend the Hoyt House on any visit to Amelia Island

This is the best b &b we have ever stay in! Everything work just the way it should. You get what you paid for.

Very friendly staff that made our two night stay at the Hoyt House unforgettable! Located in the heart of Fernadina beach, within walking distance from small art galleries and little, tasteful restaurants. The cosy rooms, the lovely yard with pool & hot tub, and the delicious breakfast all make the Hoyt House a very special place to stay!
5 on February 22, 2014
This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and we absolutely loved it! Myrtra and Deb made our stay very enjoyable! Everything was great from the beautiful room and luxurious linens to the the delicious breakfast with warm hand towels! We will definitely return in the future!
5 on February 20, 2014
My husband and I enjoyed one perfect night at the Hoyt House Inn. The Inn's decor was beautiful as was the room. The champagne and chocolate covered strawberries were waiting for us in the room and were just what we had hoped for. The room was spotless, the linens were of fine quality and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and began with warm cloths to wipe our hands. The china pattern was beautiful and the crystal was sparkling. Myrta was a warm and friendly host who gave us tips on the best place to find shark teeth on the beach. We look forward to our next visit !
4.8 on February 12, 2014
Hoyt House is an excellent choice for a stay on Amelia Island. Although the weather was pretty chilly, the walk down to the harbor was easy from this location, and the house was warm. We were the only guests the nights we stayed, so we missed the fellowship which is such a large part of the B&B experience. Our hostess, however, was very pleasant, and mine of useful information, as I became ill just before our departure, and she helped us find medical help, and also introduced us to the store next door which has just about anything one could want or need whilst visiting this lovely island.
4.6 on February 01, 2014
Lovely home and great location
4.8 on January 03, 2014
Great service, friendly staff, excellent food and lots of pampering. A warm and friendly place where you are really welcomed in the parlours and porches. Excellent advice on the area, feel like we've know Myrta all of our lives!
5 on November 11, 2013
You feel as though you are staying at a private residence while visiting the Hoyt House. From the freshly prepared breakfast in the morning to evenings on the porch swing sipping wine, you feel right at home. The grounds are lovely and well kept and the location is perfectly placed at the top of Centre Street with all the downtown shops and restaurants within walking distance. I definitely plan to return hopefully during the Holidays while the Christmas decor is up and to join in on the cookie tour in the neighborhood! I also have two small dogs that came with my husband and I and it was a perfect set up for them. All in all, a fabulous stay!

On a spur of the moment my wife and I decided to stay at a Bed and Breakfast in Fernandina Beach. Initially this was our third choice when we started looking. Our third choice turned out to be a very good choice. Very beautifully restored home. Very clean and comfortable. Very good full breakfast. Many amenities and conveniences provided. Clean pool and hot tub in a very beautiful yard. Walking distance to historic district, restaurants, and shopping, My wife and I will be making a return trip to Fernandina and this time the Hoyt House will be our first choice
5 on September 02, 2013
Our visit was outstanding in every way: authentic historic decor; warm greeting and hospitality, gorgeous grounds and pool, outstanding breakfasts. It is one of the finest places we have ever stayed. We were there 4 days to experience Fernandina Beach and found all of our host's recommendations to be right on.

Excellent value. A lovely facility great management and hospitality.

My husband and I came here to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and what a perfect place we chose! My husband and I are in our late 20s and we really really enjoyed Amelia island and the Hoyt House. There's not a whole lot of active things to do in Amelia island but that's just the point we were able to get away and relax, walk around the shops, go to the beach, the pool, eat a wonderful restaurants, and even take a horse and carriage ride. At the Hoyt House you feel like royalty...you are so well taken care of and that beautiful mansion is like it's your beautiful mansion for the days you're there. Truly an experience you should try : ) Thank you Myrta for the great service and nice chats : )
5 on June 13, 2013
Loved the house and grounds, and the food. Staff is really helpful. Chairs towels and toys are provided for the beech. Close to the beach, walking distance to resturants and shops. Great old house and town, loved the Island history.
5 on May 23, 2013
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at The Hoyt House for a friend's wedding. Having never stayed at a B&B before- only hotels- I had my personal reservations. Well, those reservations went to pot the second we arrived! Myrta gave us the grand tour of this charming estate before checking into our room. The grounds were stunning in bloom & the Inn itself simply breathtaking. The old world charm is in every detail- from the turned barley twist furniture to the beautiful original wood accents. After checking into room #4- we indulged in the delicious homemade cookies in our room & then went to the barroom for a glass of wine. At the bar we met Deborah- who was just as friendly & welcoming as Myrta. We felt right at home from the start! After the wedding rehearsal & rehearsal dinner- we retired to bed- & Oh what comfort that was! The sheets & bedding were DIVINE! I haven't slept that well in ages! The next morning, we woke to the most delicious breakfast that would give any 5 star hotel/venue a run for it's money- delicious Banana Pancakes- fresh fruit- bacon,sausage & so much more! The french press coffee was in a league of it's own! Each room also came equipped with a lovely bath line for showering- that was heavenly. I truly can not say enough about this Gem of a B&B! If we ever return to the area, we will absolutely only return to The Hoyt House- no doubt about it! Hoping everyone who visits has the pleasure of staying at this little slice of heaven! Much thanks to both Myrta & Deborah for the best stay we've had anywhere. Blessings!

"Luxury Inn" definitely describes this B&B. From the time you check in with Myrta and Deborah everyone is so accommodating and pleasant you feel just like home immediately. Rooms are immaculate, beds are divine and service very prompt. Breakfasts are homemade to your liking. Nothing like waking up to the aroma of hot cinnamon sticky buns. This definitely is a place to return to for more R&R. Also one must go to David's Restaurant. This should be top of your list for a delicious gourmet romantic fine dining experience one block from this B&B. There just aren't enough words to praise this Inn.

This place is amazing. Deborah and Myrta have gone out of their way to make the guest experience one of the best ever. They have thought of everything to make their guests welcome and well cared for. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and tranquil. The breakfasts are amazing with a new and scrumptious choice every day. We stayed in the Master Suite (#9) and it was well appoint and spacious. The pool was well landscaped and heated to the perfect temperature.

Romantic, relaxing, felt pampered. Location was perfect. Owners were helpful and super nice. Food was delicious. Loved the house, the room, the pub, the porch. We hope to make this a yearly event!!

Hoyt House is a very special place with wonderful, comfortable accommodations (great bed), delicious food and a great location in Fernandina Beach. We will definitely return!
4.6 on April 28, 2013
We stayed in several B & B's on this vacation and this was our favorite breakfast by far. This was the first time that we ever had a choice of breakfast items, and loved the sticky bun. Myrta & Deborah were fantastic hosts and we loved the private pub (very cool). This was a nice, comfortable place to stay that was convenient and within walking distance to everything.
4.6 on April 25, 2013
The stay was for our 40th wedding anniversary and we could not have chosen a better place. Myrta one of the owners made our stay. She could not have been more helpful with suggestions and making arrangements. The accommodations were beautiful and full of charm. Check out the website. Easy to use and navigate and full of pictures. We're definitely going back! Richard & Lynn Karlitskie

We could not have picked a more special place to enjoy four days at Fernandina Beach! The owners are the most friendly, accommodating, professional women,yet warm like family. Their motto is to treat you like they want to be treated and that is 100% true! The elegantly presented, delicious breakfast is beyond what you would expect! Loved the porch for reading, or just relaxing. The spa & pool were spotless and the enclosed area lovely and private so you felt like you were in your own backyard. The amenities in your room and in the rest of the historic home were exceptional. We loved the convenience of being within walking distance of the historic district and wonderful restaurants. We felt like we were in someone's home rather than in a hotel. The room was so cozy, comfortable and well-decorated. We will certainly stay at the Hoyt House again when we visit Fernandina!!
5 on April 09, 2013
The experience was first class all the way. The Inn Keepers, Deborah and Myrta were the coolest! They truly go above and beyond to make your stay so special. The breakfasts were delicious and the grounds were so lovely. They have a pool and hot tub and are at the beginning of downtown. You can walk to the shops or ride bikes around town and to the beach.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Hoyt House in room #9, the master bedroom. Very nice room and very comfortable. We enjoyed visiting with the staff and service was excellent. We plan to return to Hoyt House on our next visit to Amelia Island

Our experience staying at the "The Hoyt House" Bed and Breakfast was awesome! One we will always remember... My fiance and I had gone to Fernindina to meet with a Wedding Coordinator to discuss our upcoming wedding in June. It had been raining all day and we decided at the last minute to try to find a place to stay. We past the "Hoyt House" and my fiance decided to turn around and see if they had anything available, and they did.. This was our first time ever staying at a "Bed and Breakfast" and we are now hooked... The warmth of the Home and Hospitality that we received from the owners we will always remember.. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have reserved the "Hoyt House" for our family to stay the entire week-end of our wedding. We highly recommend anyone to stay here:)
5 on March 13, 2013
The Hoyt House Inn was a 5 star quality Bed and Breakfast. Deborah and Myrta, the Innkeepers, made sure our stay was perfection, and it was. Select one of 13 bedrooms, each of which is exceptionally clean and has charm. The good news was that our dogs, Toby and Teddy, we're able to join us and were welcomed by the staff. Every morning we enjoyed a cooked to order breakfast, from a menu! The sticky buns are outrageous as well as the scone and fresher baked cookie trays in the afternoon. Happy hour in the quaint bar is complimentary (beer or wine) and freshly made hors d'oeurves were present every evening. Be sure and eat at David's restaurant across the street for 5 star quality dining. It is amazing, see you next year guys...can't wait!
4.2 on March 03, 2013
We enjoyed staying at Hoyt House. We had room 'Wells' with a huge bed, you only could get in by steps! Very comfortable and with all the old-fashioned furniture we felt like being back in the good old times. The hospitality was outstanding, Deborah made all the reservations for us for dinner and cruises. The pool was perfect for a swim the day we arrived, and we enjoyed the hot tub very much. We will highly recommend this destination and are looking forward to coming back one day.
5 on February 26, 2013
We really enjoyed our visit at the Hoyt House Bed & Breakfast Inn. The rooms were really comfortable and they were very accomodating. We are looking forward to returning to Amelia Island and the Hoyt House.

Hadn't stayed at a B&B in a very long time. The service, surroundings, location and experience were outstanding. Conveniently located and an outstanding breakfast. Will definitely go back.

We spent a fabulous Christmas get away at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. The home was decorated for the holidays and as you enter you hear a player piano playing Christmas music. The parlors and room complete the 1905 picture. It was like being welcomed into a home by a family member. Myrta and Deb were gracious in the hospitality. The food was soooo good and I'm not even going to say much about their "sticky buns" but let you find out. You will be surprised by the offerings as part of their 3 course breakfast. One block from the historic district so there are lots of things to do. We are making this a family tradition. Put this on your must do list.
5 on December 29, 2012
This was our first visit to Amelia Island and staying at a B&B is our style. We decided to try Hoyt House after reading other reviews and just about memorizing their web site. We love old houses and the Inn met our expectations in all areas. Deborah and Myrta are the owners and they make every attempt to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They will mix with the guests or leave you alone however you like it to be. The Inn is very well kept both inside and out. Superb location to the Historic District, local restaurants, shopping and just a few minutes drive to the beach. The breakfast is all that it is advertised to be with a wide variety of choices, well prepared and we especially enjoyed the Sticky Buns that start off each morning the right way! Hey....you are on vacation! On Christmas Eve we went to David's Restaurant which is only a block away and enjoyed a delicious dinner in a beautiful setting with a jazz bar right off the dining room. Excellent food, service and entertainment. Deborah is the Chef at David's....named after her son I am told. It was cool that weekend so we didn't use the pool or spa in the side yard but I am told others did. We met several nice couples during our stay and we always enjoy hearing where others have been and are going....part of the fun of a B&B we think. We stayed in the Mizell room which is the largest room they have I believe. It was very nice, on the ground floor and well furnished. The bathroom has a jacuzzi tub. We also ordered in-room massages which Myrta arranged and the massage therapists who came were wonderful....a husband and wife team. Turns out the wife Heather graduated from the same univeristy as we did in Ohio. Would we return again.....absolutely!

My husband and I celebrated his birthday with a week end stay at the Hoyt House. The house is beautiful and inviting and has a wonderful warmth about it. Our room (The Wells) had a huge king sized bed and was so comfortable and clean. The extras waiting in the room (apples, cookies & bottled water) were a nice treat! This inn is located in beautiful Historic Fernandina Beach, right on Center Street and you can walk to anywhere in town. The cooked to order breakfast was amazing, the fresh fruit & Eggs Benedict are a must!! Myrta and Deborah are wonderful Innkeepers and made us feel welcome. We will definitely be back again.

Best relaxing vacation ever!! Myrta, Deborah and the staff made everything easy, fun and delicious!

fantastic hosts, amazing breakfast, beautiful room, and a great location near center of town, easy walk to pretty much anything. Couldnt ask for a better place to stay and relax.
5 on September 29, 2012
The nicest place I've ever stayed! The owners love to pamper; the home is gorgeous; the food is outstanding; the bar opens when you're thirsty; and the view of the pool at night is amazing. It's located within blocks of great restaurants and it's an easy hike to a sparsely populated beach. If a laid back vacation is what you're looking for, you can't go wrong with the Hoyt House in Amelia Island.
4.8 on September 27, 2012
Had a wonderful 2 days at the Hoyt House. I think the location is wonderful for walking to restaurants and to the shops. Would stay there again.
5 on September 20, 2012
What a charming place! Great accommodations, amenities and service. Both the owners and staff really understand what excellent customer service entails.
5 on September 12, 2012
One of the nicest B&Bs we have ever stayed at. They pay attention to every little detail. Close to everything in the area. Nice touch of a cocktail hour with great items to snack on. Very nicely maintained pool area with new lounge furniture.
5 on September 06, 2012
Wonderful hosts Myrta and Debbie will spoil you at this luxurious B&B complete with gourmet 3 course breakfast, wonderful linens on the beds, a fun and generous Happy Hour with lots of goodies and a relaxing pool, jacuzzi and hammock to enjoy. We had a great time and can't wait to return. This is a must visit B&B! Enjoy!

This was our first trip to Amelia Island and to Hoyt House. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay here. Hoyt House is an absolutely beautiful historic property. The innkeepers, Deborah and Myrta, have done an outstanding job of restoring the inn and appointing it with such fine amenities. We were greeted warmly by Myrta and Deborah, and you would have thought we were long lost family. Our room (Kate's Study) was lovely and very comfortable. There were even fresh-baked cookies (heaven), apples and water waiting for us. The bed was very comfortable with some of the finest linen I have ever touched. You feel pampered every time you turn around. Your stay includes a cooked-to-order, two-course breakfast and an evening reception with marvelous appetizers. Our server for breakfast, Missi, was simply delightful and took excellent care of us. Part of your breakfast includes homemade sticky buns that were delicious and french press coffee which made waking up perfect! The evening reception includes ever changing appetizers, the company of your innkeepers and other guests, and a bar area that feels like a classic lounge. Myrta and Deborah are excellent hosts and provide great company and fantastic recommendations. We dined in the historic district at two restaurants recommended by our hosts -- spot on perfect. The inn's location made it easy for us to walk most places, and bikes are available if you want to venture further (compliments of the inn). Myrta also gave us suggestions on some out-of-the-way sights, and we had a wonderful time exploring the island and further down the coast. This had to be one of our top experiences. We definitely plan to return and will only stay at Hoyt House. I would highly recommend Hoyt House to anyone planning a trip to Amelia Island!
5 on September 02, 2012
We had a great time and everything was absolutely perfect. Myrta and Deborah are gracious hosts and pay attention to every detail.

Exceptional in every way.
5 on July 01, 2012
This was my first visit to the Hoyt House, but I can't wait to return, as this truly was my best experience at a B&B. I actually stayed an extra day because I enjoyed it so much. I truly felt welcomed and appreciated as a guest. The home is absolutely beautiful, retaining the charm of yesteryear but having the comforts of today, including quality linens, delicious menu ordered three-course breakfasts, and an on-site full bar with some great specialty martinis and great hors d'oeuvres during social hour. Perhaps my favorite aspect was the English Tea Experience in the afternoon, with finger sandwiches, sweet treats, and choice of tea (try the fruit sangria!) Room service occurs while you are at breakfast, so as not to interfere with your day, which was an unexpected delight! Amenities include pool and spa as well as necessities for a beach trip. Myrta and Deborah think of everything here so you don't have to! The location is great, wihin walking distance of shops, restuarants, and the marina, but still a quiet oasis to relax and unwind.
5 on June 20, 2012
This experience exceeded expectations. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Hoyt House. We plan on returning many times in the future. We found it difficult to leave the grounds to do activities on this Florida island! When we did venture off property, we looked forward to coming back home. That's what Hoyt House has figured out - how to make folks feel at home while sway from home. All aspects of the stay are well managed.
5 on June 13, 2012
The Inn is within a block of shopping and resturants and a pleasant stroll to the marina.
5 on June 01, 2012
The Hoyt House was the perfect place for a long weekend getaway. The service was great - perfect restaurant recommendations, delicious breakfast, awesome bar - we had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return!
5 on June 01, 2012
We loved the Hoyt House! The bar, pool and porch are great places to hang out and Myrta and Deborah are great hosts. We felt relaxed the whole time. This B&B is close to restaurants and nightlife and only a mile from the beach. you can easily ride one of their bikes to the beach. We recommend the Hoyt House for a romantic weekend or a great week long vacation
4.4 on May 29, 2012
a great place to unwind. the breakfast was excellent and we really enjoyed visiting with other guests during happy hour. Myrta and Deborah were wonderful!
4.8 on May 25, 2012
We had one night to get away for a "Babymoon" and we are so glad that we chose the Hoyt House. From the first phone call with questions to the time we checked out, Myrta and the staff were so polite and friendly. The pool was wonderful. The breakfast was INCREDIBLE. My only tip would be in you book the corner room, Kate's Study, I recommend earplugs to help with the street traffic.
4.2 on May 23, 2012
Fantastic get away, great location, superb breakfast, friendly, involved innkeepers - overall - a lovely experience.

We had a wonderful stay at The Hoyt House. It's a wonderful home, the grounds are beautiful, rooms are nice and comfortable, Myrta and Deborah make you feel like family from the time you arrive and the food was outstanding. We can't wait to go back again this year.
5 on May 16, 2012
My wife and I spent a weekend at the Hoyt House. We do not stay at a bed and breakfast often, but what an outstanding vacation. The proprietors, Myrta and Deborah were gracious hostesses. Our every need was met. The property is well maintained, appointed and has all of the extras. These gals sure know how to make you feel at home. The location is fantastic- it is close to all the fun things to do and eat in Fernandina Beach. We highly recommend the Hoyt House and definitely plan to stay there again soon.
4.6 on May 14, 2012
My husband and I were looking for a quiet getaway after our busy business season and Hoyt House and Amelia Island did not disappoint. The only disappointing part was our stay was too short. Hope to return soon and continue our adventures.
4.6 on May 11, 2012
My husband and I decided to take a last minute trip up to Fernandina Beach for the night and wanted to try one of the B&Bs we'd seen during our day trips. We didn't realize it was "Shrimp Boat Festival" weekend and there were only 2 rooms left in the entire city. One was at the Hoyt House and we snapped it up. The Hoyt was just outside the barricades of the festival area so we were concerned about the noise and parking. While the on-site parking was tight, with a little creative maneuvering everyone was able to get their cars parked. We stayed in "Kate's Study", which has an octagon bay window (and which faces the festival area). It was a lovely room with a pretty sleigh bed and was surprisingly quiet! The bath was tiny, but what do you expect from an 1809 house? We got a drink from the beautiful bar and sat on the porch in rockers and watched the festival goers. There was a nice sized swimming pool and a hot tub. We enjoyed both. The breakfast was truly fantastic and the young lady who served it was charming and sweet. Everything about our stay was lovely and we would stay at the Hoyt again!
4.2 on May 06, 2012
My partner and I had a great 2 night stay in Lara's Room in March. Great, warm welcome; lovely linens and towels etc. Breakfast was amazing! Enjoyed free nibbles and wine in the afternoon and some fabulous belinis on the front porch in the evening. Borrowed an umbrella and chairs fro the 1 mile drive to the beach. Shopping and restaurants very near in the historic district. Overall a great place to stay - we will return!!
5 on April 20, 2012
Had a wonderful time. Great service, gourmet breakfast, very clean and wonderful pool. An easy walk to all the restaurants and shopping. I highly recommend the Hoyt House.
4.2 on April 17, 2012
We stayed at the Hoyt House for five nights and enjoyed the breakfasts and the location which is near the downtown area and allowed us to walk to many various restaurants.
5 on April 15, 2012
My husband and I enjoyed a most perfect four night stay at the Hoyt House. The inn was within walking distance of anything/everything in downtown Amelia and there were bikes available if you didn't feel like walking. The breakfast was fantastic, lots to choices and all of them delicious. Myrta and Deborah's attention to detail and "over the top" service was far beyond our expectations. They have a terrific social hour that no guest wants to miss. We feel as though we have found our home-away-from-home at the Hoyt House and will choose to stay here for all future visits
5 on April 12, 2012
Great hosts and amenities. location is perfect as we didn't have to use our car the entire stay.
5 on April 11, 2012
Wish we could have stayed 2 nights instead of just one. We enjoyed the weather, bike riding, special breakfast, accomodations were fabulous and especially enjoyed visiting other guests at the commplimentary wine and cheese social. This was our second visit and plan to make it a tradition each year.
4.0 on March 16, 2012
The hospitality at Hoyt House was wonderful. Our room was spacious and we enjoyed the jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The breakfasts were delicious and we were happy to receive made-to-order meals from a menu. Likewise, the 5 o'clock get togethers with complimentary cocktail and tasty appetizers were a treat. We sat outside by the pool which was a very beautiful setting. The outdoor whirlpool looked enticing but we didn't use it. All in all, Hoyt House made our three nights in Amelia Island memorable.
4.8 on March 15, 2012
This was an amazing place to stay. Deborah and Myrta have this down pat. Breakfast is a culinary treat starting with homemade sticky buns! The room was perfectly appointed with everything you could need. The bed was so comfortable we did not want to leave. We would recommend this place to anyone and already booked for next year.
5 on March 11, 2012
If you want to truly EXPERIENCE Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island Hoyt House B & B is a MUST. To the first point of contact, to our final goodbye's, Myrta and Deborah, the Innkeepers, went above and beyond to make us feel special and cared for. The 3 course breakfast was beyond anything I have ever experienced, and I travelled the world for a living. The comfort of the beds and the appointments of the rooms is more than you would expect at any 5 star resort. This was not just an ordinary vacation, this was a treasured memory that I will share with anyone that asks. Thank you Myrta and Deborah I will be back.
5 on March 05, 2012
I took my husband to Amelia Island and Hoyt House as a surprise for his birthday. Myrta was extremely helpful in taking the reservation and in making reservations for me for several things - meals, a carriage ride, and a boat ride. And Deborah is a truly amazing chef.....breakfast was just elegant. The house itself is really beautifully maintained and furnished and very clean. We loved all of the extra touches - cheese, crackers and fruit in the afternoon, umbrellas in case of rain, cookies and fruit in our room when we arrived...and perhaps the most comfortable bed in the universe. It is very conveniently located - we were able to walk everywhere during our stay. Myrta, Deborah and their staff deserve very, very high marks for creating a lovely warm and welcoming place to stay. I feel so lucky to have chosen their home for our birthday "getaway" weekend. They made the difference between us having a good weekend.....and having a GREAT one. Our thanks to Myrta, Deborah and their staff along with our sincere hope to be a guest there again in the not too distant future.

The yacht, 'Nice Aft', was a fantastic and unusal place to take my husband for his birthday. Extremely roomy and comfortable 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with living, kitchen and dining areas inside and open deck spaces outside. The gourmet breakfast at the main house was worthy of 5 Michelin stars. The inkeepers attention to detail and hospitality is unparalleled. Great place to stay!

Very pleasant experience. Our needs were met without someone being intrusive. Room size was very nice and beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Looking forward to going back

Although my experience with Bed & Breakfasts in Florida is very limited, I think I've found the place that surely sets the standard. It's the Hoyt House on Amelia Island. This lovely home stands on the corners of 8th Street and Centre Street in downtown Amelia Island, in the heart of the town's historic district. And we can thank the newest innkeepers, Myrta and Deborah, for creating what I consider more than your average bed and breakfast. Their motto is "To Exceed Your Expectations" and indeed they do with extras that you don't get from other B&Bs in the area, or probably anywhere else: concierge service, DVD players in the rooms with an extensive DVD library, white noise machines to soothe you to sleep, complimentary popcorn at 4pm, complimentary beer and wine at Happy Hour in the new pub-style bar, and of course, the made to order breakfast which is second to none. Being on the main street unfortunately has its downside. 8th Street leads directly a nearby paper mill and trucks do drive by often and can be quite loud. The Hoyt House does seem to be quieter inside and the white noise machines help tremendously to keep the truck sounds to a minimum at night. We stayed in the Oliver Room which is downstairs and on the side of the house farthest from the street. We didn't hear very much street noise at night. Thank you Myrta and Deborah for your hospitality. We hope to come see you again soon.

Deborah and Myrta have raised the bar in hospitality service to new heights. We and our daughter booked our 2011 Christmas holiday at the Hoyt House and our stay exceeded our every expectation. From the delicious breakfast menu cooked to perfection and wine, hors d'oeuvres and that special Malibu Black from their bar, to the new friendships created while enjoying the evening on the front porch, all combined to make our stay memorable. We have stayed in many B&B's across the country and by far, none can hold a candle to the ambiance and friendly service provided by Deborah, Myrta and their staff. A stay at the Hoyt House will not be forgotten. Sam And Brenda.

The new proprietors Myrta & Deborah have collaborated together to make the Hoyt House a wonderful and friendly experience. A beautiful Victorian mansion with all the modern amenities, yet still cozy. The owners are very friendly, kind and extremely talented. The complimentary breakfast meal is absolutely the best . We wish them continued success as we know they will always try to outdo themselves. Best Regards Dominique & Lisa Huret

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of being guests at the Hoyt House. What a lovely experience. The breakfast prepared by Chef Deborah was amazing. Be sure and try those wonderful sticky buns, what a treat. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. Myrta and Deborah were exceptional hosts and very personable and always available to answer questions or make reservations for dinner. We are looking forward to our next visit at the Hoyt House. Make your reservations, you won't be disappointed.
4.6 on November 08, 2011
We just had a destination wedding at the Hoyt house. Neither us nor our guests had been to Amelia Island before, so we planned everything remotely through internet and phone. Myrta and Deborah were both very helpful and had answers for all the questions or concerns we had. We were so glad we picked this place, not only because the historic mansion is full of antique favors, big and clean rooms, huge backyard area and hot tub, but also the hosts were so accommodating! Despite its age, the house is absolutely beautiful and can accommodate every modern convenience. The breakfasts were delicious, and I'm already missing their French press coffee~!
4.8 on November 03, 2011
Both Deborah and Myrta were so friendly and accomodating. We couldn't have been more pleased with their personal touch during our weekend stay. It by the way, included a murder mystery and they added to the fun everyone had. Looking forward to my next trip. Oh, and the food was great, not only breakfast but dinner too.

Thoroughly enjoyed sneaking away to Amelia Island and finding this "jewel". This place was first-class. From the private, fully stocked lounge, to the relaxing wrap-around porch with swings and rocking chairs, it was a getaway dream. Great gourmet breakfast made to order with French-pressed coffee. Overall, great B & B with warm and friendly staff. We'll be back!!!

This is our third time staying here over the years. We've been impressed each and every time we have stayed. The new addition of the "Bar" is a great addition and allows those that want, to socialize and talk to other visitors. The breakfast is amazing and well prepared and served. I would suggest planning your dining time in advance if you like to eat at a specific time since the starting times are staggered and fill up. Their system works well and allows you to have personalized service. I loved the new Keurig coffee makers and used them both a lot! We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and were upgraded to a nicer room. The rooms are all clean and the amenities cover everything you could possibly ask for. The location is within walking distance to the town and shopping, with lots of great dining choices!

The grounds were well taken care of and large enough for a leisurly walk. The pool and spa are awesome. My wife and I enjoyed the breakfast. Everything was so good that we could not finish it. We will be back.

Hoyt House was the perfect getaway weekend destination. Close to the beach and the shopping area we were provided with perfect attention to every detail and wonderful inkeepers! A beautiful pool and hottub provided the perfect way to end the day and the added bar created a friendly social gathering place. The breakfast was sinfully delicious!! We cannot wait to return!!
5 on September 16, 2011
First time at a B&B and throughly enjoyed my stay! Deb & Myrta have awesome personalities and made my boyfriend and I feel right at home! Breakfast was absolutely delicious. We stayed on the yacht which was a memorable event! If you haven't stayed on a yacht, I highly recommend it here, at the Hoyt House!
5 on September 08, 2011
Myrta and Deborah run a fantastic B&B! They are friendly but not intrusive. The food is fantastic, and the complimentary happy hour is a wonderful way to cap off the day and kick off the night! Definitely take advantage of the private pool and two person hammock, and ask to get one of Deborah's phenomenal margaritas! Go and go often!

Food was excellent! Exceeded my expectations. Beautiful parlor and bar area was classy and quaint. Complimentary cocktail and appetizers at 5pm with the owners and other guests. Bicycles provided to guests for a short ride to the beach. One of the few bed and breakfast in the area with it's own parking lot. The only negative comment is that is sits next to a busy street with lots of truck traffic. But the staff was friendly and courteous and I would definately stay there again!

What a wonderful experience in Historic Fernandina Beach! A weekend get-a-way for my wife's birthday turned into a new appreciation for B&Bs as we have now stayed in one that got everything right. Room, social areas (including a pub room), pool, spa and every detail you could want or need. Can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed the entire experience at the Hoyt house. The Inn keepers are friendly and warm. They go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and enjoy your stay. Great location in Amelia Island. A short walk to shopping and dining.

My husband and I stayed at Hoyt House on our 8th Anniversary. Our room was "Lara's Room" and it was lovely. The gourmet breakfast was delicious and very generous. We were able to take advantage of the spa and pool on both nights we stayed and enjoyed them very much. Myrta and Deborah are wonderful hosts and made sure everything was great for our stay. We would highly recommend Hoyt House when staying in Amelia Island.

The Inn is absolutely gorgeous. From the moment you step foot on the property, you are greeted by beautiful old trees draped with moss, with a wrap around porch to enjoy the beautiful sights of this amazing property. Inside was just as beautiful with the antique furnishings and sweet chirps from Kiwi (the lovebird). The Inn is spotless, and very comfortable and inviting. Deborah and Myrta make you feel as if you are at home.They have by far exceeded my expectations in every way possible. They truly love what they do and it is evident in every way, from the Wine and Cheese social, to the best breakfasts we have EVER eaten. Deborah really know how to cook to perfection and Myrta serves it with a beautiful smile on her face. We stayed in the Wells room, with fresh baked cookies and water on our arrival. The bed was very comfortable, and nice view of the lovely pool and Jacuzzi. We could not have chosen a better place to spend or 25th anniversary. Thank you Deborah and Myrta can't wait until we can visit again.

I decided at the last minute to go away on the July 4th holiday weekend. With limited flights out of the DC area, I ended up finding a direct flight to Jacksonville and wanted to stay on Amelia Island. I first called the inn with a few questions, which Myrta happily answered and off I went. I was thrilled with the inn, accommodations, the breakfasts, the cocktail hour, the beach, the pool, the area - it was all so lovely. I stayed in a basic room but I could not have enjoyed myself more. Thank you to Myrta and Deborah, Hoyt House Innkeepers, for such attention to detail and superb service. LB

This is a beautifully restored 1905 house in the middle of Fernandina Beach. The owners Martya and Deborah are warm and loving women. As relatively new innkeepers, they provide many amenities including great breakfasts, afternoon cocktails, a pool and of course well appointed rooms. I highly recommend this B & B if you are looking for a respite in this very laid back area of North Florida. Stayed June 2011, traveled as a couple

My husband and I spent 5 wonderful nights last week at the charming Hoyt House with the incomparable innkeepers Deborah and Myrta. They are both very warm and welcoming and exceeded our expectations to make sure we had a great vacation (They succeeded!) Our room (Willis) had a very comfortable bed and a spacious, clean bathroom. We were greeted with fresh baked cookies and apples in our room. My husband and I are still talking about the yummy, large breakfast portions (fresh fruit and especially the fritattas and the poached egg over the fried potato slices) We spent a wonderful afternoon relaxing in the fabulous backyard pool. Deborah and Myrta thought of everything--we enjoyed borrowing their bikes, beach chairs, towels, and boogie boards! We loved hanging out with the other guests at the afternoon "happy hour" complete with complimentary refreshments. they were full of wonderful advice for the area. It was a quick walk to the rest of the historic district. You'll love staying here, too!

My wife and I spent our 1-week honeymoon at the Hoyt house. Deborah & Myrta gave an extra shot of warmth that no B&B could offer on it's own as well of a list of amenities that made our stay one we'll remember for the rest of our lives. We purchased the Romance Package which included out of this world chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of champagne, a picnic basket lunch, 2 massages, and a fruit/shrimp platter. This was on top of their standard amenities which exceeded our expectations, such as 1) the daily complimentary cocktail hour (generous pour of 1 beverage of your choice) and an arrangement of fruits, meats, cheeses, olives, and hummus, 2) the complimentary bicycle rentals, 3) the assortment of newspapers and books to read, 4) the extensive DVD library, 5) the beach gear, 6) and discounts on some local activities. We most definitely will return to the Hoyt House and recommend it to our friends and family.

I use to live in Fernandina and know this is the best B&B on the island. My stay there was thoroughly enjoyable. The staff is awesome, the house is lovely and the porch is magic.

We had our 25th annual gathering of college sorority sisters at Hoyt House and it was great. Myrta and Deborah were so accommodating and helped to make it a great 4 days. The location near the historic town of Fernandina Beach provided lots of great shopping and opportunities to enjoy the history of the area. I recommend it highly.

It was the best reunion we've ever had at a B&B. Myrta and Deborah could not have been more accomodating for needs and requests. The food was so comforting and delicious!. We all enjoyed the porch for chatting and laughing. The location is A-one for the downtown stroll and shopping. The perfect place!!

this beautiful B&B. The service, meals, pool, and lovely rooms far exceeded our expectations. Wonderful care by all, would highly recommend this B&B. I would come back and recommend without hestitation.

Excellent 3-course gourmet breakfast (and loved the French press coffee). Gorgeous, historic home, a foot-friendly location at doorstep to Fernandina's main corridor of boutiques, restaurants, pubs, very attentive innkeepers Myrta and Deborah, and fun social hour for cocktails and mingling in the "English pub room." My inclination is that those who stay once at Hoyt House will be back again next time they visit Amelia Island, we'd stay again here. The innkeepers are aiming to please (and doing a very good job of it, in my opinion). These gals are really nice and made us feel welcome and at ease. If you’re a porch person, you’re going to enjoy Hoyt’s wonderful wrap around verandah. I tried Deborah's Amelia Martini (or "Hoytie Toytie") and sipped it while sitting on the porch swing (yummy). My husband and I slept in the Mizell room with bay window overlooking the rear pool garden. It’s the largest guest suite at the inn. We arrived in our room to find chocolate chip cookies (and they really were still warm), along with welcome tray offering fruit, water, and wine. We liked having robes in our room to slip into, plus there's also terry wraps (nice for back and forth to the pool/hot spa) -- they've got a hammock out there, too, and gazebo, lots of lounges. You can hop on bicycles and ride across the island about 2 miles on Atlantic Ave. (sidewalks all the way) to arrive at the beach (and Hoyt House offers complimentary bicycles for guests). I recommend getting up early, bike riding to the beach to watch the sunrise over the Atlantic which is spectacular, and then pedal back for the wonderful breakfast. We ended up skipping lunch and just enjoyed the complimentary wine with fruit & cheese at the social hour, and then ventured out into historic district for dinner. The sun sets over the river in the historic district (just walk from Hoyt 8 blocks down to the Fernandina marina area, a great spot to watch a sunset).

We just returned home from a weeks stay at the Hoyt House on Amelia Island and absolutely loved it? This B&B has it all. The owners are warm and friendly and are always available to answer questions or just chat about the local area. The mansion is decorated with period antiques and is large enough for you to find a quiet corner to read a book alone, but also just small enough where you can find company if you want it. This lovely historic home provides everything you need for a fun and relaxing vacation (even bikes are available at no additional charge to use during your stay). The beach is only a mile away and the historic district, which is full of unique restaurants and great boutiques, is literally steps away. If you don't feel like going anywhere, you can just relax on a float in the heated pool or read a juicy novel in the shade under one of the umbrellas next to the pool. We really enjoyed the social hour every day as well and met some wonderful new people and got to know the owners better. Myrta and Deborah are the hardest working innkeepers I have ever met. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and keep the inn running smoothly. We will definitely be returning to the Hoyt House and highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates old world charm and good southern hospitality.

Innkeepers Myrta and Deborah provided us with advice and services that took all the searching out of our vacation. The breakfasts were exciting and the evening wine and cheese relaxing.

Great Inn,location,service, room, everything was just great. The ladies are a hoot as well! Best breakfast I have ever had!!

Charming could describe the Hoyt House but a better word would be GOURMET. When you relax and enjoy such delightful surroundings and warm and welcoming owners it's delightful and even somewhat expected. When you sit down to breakfast and are treated and pampered like royalty well, lets just say they had me hooked. The morning breakfast has been memorized by my tastebuds and sense of smell. Really if I was a greedy person I wouldn't tell anyone about my discovery, I have travelled on luxury vacations to many locations, I can say this rates with the best and is going into my book of favorite places to bring all my special friends and family for a memorable stay.

We really enjoyed our one night at the Hoyt House B&B Inn, and wish we didn't have to move to the hotel when my husband's conference started. The Ritz is nice and luxurioius, but doesn't make you feel as welcome as Mryta and Deborah do at their Inn. It is so relaxing, and we met some wonderful people even in such a short time. We will be going back as soon as we can get away again!

We stayed last week at Hoyt House B&B on Amelia Island, and a more delightful stay could not be had. The house and rooms were beautiful, comfortable, and scrupulously clean, and Deborah and Myrta made us feel right at home from the minute we walked in. The breakfasts were sublime -- far exceeding the usual fare of muffins and fruit we have received at other B&B's. The service provided by Deborah, Myrta, and the Hoyt House staff was impeccable. Just one example of the exemplary service was when the air conditioning had a glitch (likely related to strong overnight storms), and it was handled quickly, courteously and professionally, and fixed within a couple hours of our noticing anything was wrong. We were offered the alternative of changing rooms if the problem couldn't be fixed quickly, but that proved unnecessary. Still, the immediate attention to the a/c was greatly appreciated. The location is perfect, as you are walking distance to all the shops and restaurants of downtown Fernandina Beach, and a short drive or bike ride from the beach on the ocean side of the island. (It's walkable, too, if you don't mind carrying your stuff, but the drive is a straight shot to the beach parking lot.) Fort Clinch State Park is nearby, too, and well worth a visit. The cocktail hour at Hoyt House was relaxing and enjoyable, and we loved getting to know some of the other guests and chatting with Deborah and Myrta. They also have extensive knowledge of the local restaurants, and can recommend the best places to go, and the tourist traps to avoid! Hoyt House is truly a gem. I'm not sure a better B&B experience can be found, and we can't wait to return next year!

It was a beautiful home and great location (walking distance to down town shops and restaurants). The only bad thing was it was off a mian street and it was very noisy (lots of trucks). The food was okay, but the service was great.

What a wonderful find in a small and charming North Florida town. The Hoyt House was authentically decorated, the service was excellent and the food exceptional!

My husband & I spent two nights, for my birthday, with Myrta & Deborah and had a wonderful time. We felt as if we were staying with friends! They were wonderful hostesses and have made their house beautiful & inviting. Breakfast was wonderful and along with the cookies and wine and cheese in the evening we were never hungry. The town is lovely and the Inn is located within walking distance to all the restaurants and shops. We hope to be able to visit there again soon.

My husband and I just returned from a week-end get away to the Hoyt House. Myrta and Debra were the perfect hostesses. They go above and beyond to make their guests feel comfortable. The breakfasts were great and varied every morning.The house was beautiful and our room was very comfortable. We will be back!
