The Amelia Island Williams House is an elegant bed and breakfast inn located in the historic seaside village of Fernandina Beach. Situated in a quiet neighborhood of beautiful restored Victorian homes, our Fernandina Beach, Florida inn is made up of three buildings.
The Williams House, circa 1856, is an antebellum mansion owned and occupied for 100 years by the family of Marcellus Williams, and offers five elegant guest rooms. Our second building, The Hearthstone House, circa 1859, was built by Mr. Plotts as a wedding present for his daughter and contains four luxurious guest suites.

The property was restored in 1993, and opened as a Fernandina Beach, Florida inn in 1994. The Williams House has won numerous awards for its excellence in elegance and hospitality.
