Perfect place for a weekend getaway!

Our stay in the Williams House was absolutely phenomenal. From formal breakfast in the elegant dining room to soothing music in the parlor, Chris and Maria have superb attention to detail. I’m astonished that they manage to maintain the home to perfection without being overbearing hosts. Despite the opulence of the mansion, we always felt so at-home.

If you visit without taking advantage of the in-depth tour Maria offers, you’ve truly missed out as it was the most enthralling part of our stay. Maria is such a fantastic storyteller, as even after a two-hour oration, I still wanted to hear more of the home’s incredible history.

Since we visited as photographers for a wedding that took place in the courtyard, I must also mention that the Williams House is truly an exquisite venue for elopement weddings. Within walking distance of so many shops, restaurants, and bars, there really are no caveats.

Lovely Inn

Maria and Chris are perfect hosts! They treat their guests with every level of care and hospitality. The Williams House is so beautiful. It’s obvious their hearts are in every detail, from the clean and beautiful guest rooms, the grounds, and delicious breakfasts. We recommend the Amelia Island Williams House to everyone who wants to be pampered and fully enjoy Amelia Island. You can park you car right out front and walk downtown to the shops and delicious restaurants - so convenient! Enjoy a glass of wine on the porch outside of your room. All the amenities are there for you. Can’t wait to return!

A wonderful place to stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful historic home. Chris and Maria are wonderful hosts who make you feel at home, joyfully share the rich history of this meticulously maintained historic home, and offer a fabulous breakfast and evening social hour. Also, the bed was comfortable and the linens and towels were thick and high quality. We will return.

Warm and wonderful

This was our second stay and will likely stay here every time we visit the area. Maria and Chris are outstanding innkeepers and literally make you feel like part of the family. Maria knocks it out of the park each morning with innovative and fresh breakfast recipes and graciously addresses special diet preferences. Both Chris and Maria have plenty of suggestions for local meal and events. The evening wine social provided more suggestions from the other guests. If you are in the area this is the place to stay. Do not miss this one.

The Williams House is our favorite place to stay when visiting Fernandina Beach. The owners, Chris and Maria are very attentive, friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome, even though we arrived quite late on a Friday evening.

The home has been meticulously maintained and has an extraordinary history that you most definitely want to hear from Maria.

Rooms are very clean, beautifully decorated as well as spacious.
Breakfast each morning in the dining room offered a chance to get to know other guests as well as enjoy a lovely two course meal with coffee and juices.
The evening gathering, with wine, cheese and crackers offered yet another time to get to know other guests, which was quite entertaining.

Chris and Maria always keep chocolate chip cookies in the dining room so make sure you try one, they were yummy.

We decided to take 2 of the 4 bikes they offer for a long lovely ride to the fort. Chris and Maria provide helmets, if you would like as well.

The home is located right near all the shopping and restaurants so there is no need to drive anywhere, just walk around and enjoy.
