How to Get There
I wanted potential guests to know about my experience. I booked 2 rooms for a visit with my husband and myself, and my mother-in-law and cousin over Thanksgiving. I called the B&B directly so I could make sure the room for my mother-in-law was easily accessible and that they could accommodate my gluten-free diet. All was well, so I put down $900 deposit as requested. We were all looking forward to this trip but during the last week of October I was contacted by the Mayo Clinic informing me of an opening to see some doctors I had been waiting to see. I jumped at the chance and went there the beginning of November. Unfortunately these doctor visits included a lot of testing and I ended up staying in Rochester, MN for over 2 weeks. This timeframe would not let us visit Florida as planned. As soon as I knew the situation I called and emailed the B&B giving them 10 days' notice to fill the rooms. They emailed me back saying if they filled the rooms, they would reimburse me or let me rebook at another time. I checked frequently during my stay in MN and each time I checked their website was informed they had no vacancies for the timeframe. I also had my sister-in-law call to ask for a reservation during the timeframe and she was told there were no vacancies. When I returned I asked for the reimbursement (our trip to the Mayo Clinic included a lot of unexpected out-of-pocket expenses). I was told they didn't rebook the rooms and so there would be no refund. I asked if I could rebook the dates using the $900 deposit and was told this wasn't possible. I know this is a small business, but I did give them 10 days' notice during a busy holiday period. They told me I should have bought travel insurance. I told them I had no idea these doctor appointments would be available so soon (I was told to expect them in the New Year). I offered time and time again to use the deposit at their convenience when they had rooms free, but they said they had been lied to before and how did they know I was telling them the truth. I sent them copies of all the Mayo Clinic documentation showing the times and dates of the tests, doctors' appts., etc. Still they wouldn't compromise. I truly think that the owners of this B&B are not compassionate, honest or trustworthy. They only are interested in your money. I do not like leaving bad reviews but feel everyone should know what will happen if they need to cancel.
Hoyt House is a fantastic Bed and Breakfast. Ricky and Tracey are very nice people and Tracey cooks amazing breakfasts every morning. I would highly recommend this place when you visit Fernandina Beach.
Beautiful home right on the corner of the historic district, so you can walk to restaurants and shopping. Well decorated, clean, and the Sterns and Foster bed was so comfortable. I am a very light sleeper and noticed there was some road noise due to the location and historic nature of the building, but a white noise machine was provided and the traffic dies down at bedtime, so it was not an issue. We stayed in the Hoyt Suite and enjoyed the balcony. It was too cold to go swimming, but the pool area is well maintained and as other reviewers have noted breakfast was delicious. Owners were on site and very friendly.
We stayed at the Hoyt house for two nights in November. We were welcomed by the innkeepers Rick and Tracy. We had the good fortune of staying in room #1 located on the first floor. This house was built in the early 1900's our room was decorated with furniture from the same period, a wonderful four poster bed that you had to climb into. A fun experience, with a great breakfast that included homemade scones.
The location is great, within walking distance of town.
I loved the Hoyt House! The house and property are beautiful, the innkeepers, Ricky and Tracy, are warm and welcoming and the breakfast - oh my goodness - is a gourmet treat! The Inn is first class in every respect. Great location on the main street that makes it an easy walk (or bike ride) to the downtown shops and restaurants in one direction and the beach in the other. I stayed 3 nights and will stay longer next time.
