Fantastic Place to Stay

We had such a great time recently at the Amelia Island Williams House. The Inn is gorgeous and the food was fantastic. Deborah and Byron really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We loved that there was so much to do and great places to eat dinner within walking distance of the Inn. Also within a short drive we were able to go kayaking in the sound which was really fun. I highly recommend staying here.


Fabulous stay at Historic Williams House

5 on April 28, 2014

Wonderful hospitality by Byron and Deborah at Williams House. Every detail felt personal. We felt like we were guests in a friend's home. Our room was amazing - private with a large en-suite bathroom with a double Jacuzzi tub. We took the complimentary bikes out for a spin down to the nearby beach. The ride to the Fort was really beautiful and the picnic lunch Deborah prepared for us was delicious! Williams House is located in such a convenient spot - short walking distance from shops and wonderful restaurants in the historic district. Loved our stay - we will return!


Wonderful Girls' Weekend!

4.6 on April 04, 2014

My mom, sister and I had a wonderful weekend at the Williams House. Byron and Deborah were incredible hosts with a wealth of knowledge for us about the island, places to eat and things to do. They arranged a carriage ride for us through the historic district which was relaxing and extremely interesting! Aside from making dining recommendations for us, they made us a reservation at Le Clos, a French restaurant that is hard to get reservations for. We were hesitant as the food genre is not one we normally gravitate towards. After much discussion and assurance from both Deborah and Byron as to the quality of the food and variety of menu we went and enjoyed an incredible meal! The rooms were clean, larger than expected, and interesting to discover (all of the decor). The house as a whole was incredibly clean and well-maintained. Last, the breakfast, oh, the incredible home-cooked breakfasts....what more is there to say...I wanted EVERY recipe for every meal they made, just wonderful! Would HIGHLY recommend a stay, and hope to return again myself!


Very Nice B & B

Debrah & Byron were very hospitable. All you had to do was ask and they gave you insight into their Island. Byron suggested a nice restaurant and it was excellent. Will definitely stay with them again when we are in that area traveling to and from Florida.

We stayed in Emma's Suite and it was perfect. We really appreciated the extra space and the special attention to detail like extra pillows and towels, plenty of outlets for re-charging our electronics, good time window for breakfast. Our hosts were gracious. When we return to Amelia Island we will definitely return to Williams House.


a wonderful anniversary

4.2 on January 30, 2014

My husband and I came to celebrate our first anniversary. I loved the room. It was private, clean, nicely decorated, and had a wonderfully warm fireplace. It was a cold weekend. The owners were very hospitable and we enjoyed the wine hour hanging out in the parlor of the main house with them and other guests. The breakfasts were wonderful and I noticed they were willing to accommodate special diets easily. It was a great location. It was easy to walk to historic downtown where we enjoyed the farmers market, good restaurants and wandering around. It was close enough to ride our bikes to the beach. Definitely a wonderful place to stay!!


Visit was outstanding!

About the innkeepers

After many years in the corporate hospitality industry and in education, we decided to search for a different lifestyle. We think the property is a gorgeous property and feel very blessed that we have the opportunity and privilege to take care of such an enchanting place. Everything about it is magical... From the history of the house, to the small fishing village downtown, to the 13 miles of beaches and the beautiful trails.
