Florida House Inn

22 S. 3rd St., Fernandina Beach, Florida, 32034, USA

This charming inn, which dates to the late 19th century, was once used by guests of the Vanderbilt, DuPont, and Carnegie families, whose "cottages" sat nearby on Cumberland and Jekyll islands. It's been fully restored, with a rambling two-story clapboard main building full of character. Rooms have handmade quilts and hooked rugs, king-size beds, and whirlpool tubs. The on-site restaurant, Leddy's Porch, serves biscuits and gravy, along with fried chicken and other Southern favorites, for lunch and weekend brunch. The Mermaid Bar, a lively first-floor pub, can be a blessing or a curse, depending on whether you're trying to catch up on your social skills or your sleep. Request a room in the south wing if you're attempting the latter.
