Julie and David
We have been in Fernandina for 5 years now and just love to meet new guests, enjoy the conversations at Happy Hour and let you relax by the pool. There is so much to see and do on Amelia Island that we want you to come and see for yourself.
Julie is the chef and I manage the facilities, but also travel during the week. We love to go kayaking, sailing, walking on the beach in the morning and watching the sun set in the evening at one of the local restaurants.
Our inn is located just blocks from the heart of the historical district and minutes from the beach. On Saturday the is always the Farmer's Market to go to one block north. Shops are open everyday and we have seen 4 new restaurants open in the last 6 months.
