The place is an excellent location near the best part of Amelia Island. The breakfast was to die for and the service was excellent.

My room was next to the busy pub next door with live music on a Saturday night. I didn't mind the noise but if you want a quiet night request a room away from the pub.

We were told about this B and B by several people. We knew that the rooms would be rustic and small but the room we stayed in was a bit too small to even fit our 2 suitcases. Our main concern was the noise from the tavern next door. The breakfast was fabulous and the service friendly.

This charming Inn is in perfect walking distance to all of historic downtown. The mermaid bar in onsite and breakfast in included in your stay. The twin bedroom is extremely tiny but was fine for our girls trip. The Green Turtle Taven is literally next door and is #1 on TripAdvisor for local bars. It is noisy at night however but didn't keep us up. I recommend this Inn for location and charm.

My daughter and now son-in-law chose The Florida House Inn as the venue for their January 17th wedding, yes it was a Tuesday night! I cannot say enough wonderful comments about the courteous, helpful staff who went out of their way to assist us as we prepared for the big event. The dining area was set up as we expected and the room was perfectly intimate for a post wedding dinner. The food was exceptional, servers gracious, and several of the party paid respect to the chef! Outstanding fare! The rooms were quaint, well stocked with nice toiletries and towels, and perfect for the venue. The Florida House Inn is located in beautiful Fernandina Beach, walking distance to many eclectic shops, restaurants, an Amelia River. If you do not make reservations at the Inn on your next trip to North Florida, or have dinner you have made a mistake! Outstanding all around and I never give raves such as this review, but The Florida House Inn earned it!!
