About Amelia Island Williams House
The Amelia Island Williams House is an elegant Select Registry bed and breakfast located in the historic village of Fernandina Beach, Florida. Situated in a quiet neighborhood of beautiful Victorian homes, our inn is exquisite in its design and has been awarded the distinction of Historical Landmark.
Our luxurious B&B is comprised of three buildings with 10 guest rooms. The Williams House, circa 1856, an Antebellum Victorian mansion owned and occupied for over 100 years by the family of Marcellus and Emma Williams, offers five elegant guest rooms. The second building, Hearthstone House, circa 1880’s, is a frame vernacular building with Greek Revival influence and contains four classic guest suites. And lastly, the Carriage House, rebuilt in 2004 on the site of the original carriage house, offers one guest room. An ornately wrought iron fence topped with gold fleur-de-lis ushers guests into a mansion with a unique gingerbread design by famed New York architect Robert Sands Schuyler. Guests are greeted by sweeping verandas, lush gardens, beautiful moldings, massive pocket doors of heart pine and mahogany. Heart pine and mahogany floors and gorgeous hand-carved mantles surround original tiled fireplaces. Crystal chandeliers, stained glass windows, and beautiful furniture remind one of the 1800’s and life as it might have been for the Williams family.
