The Hoyt House

blue-floral-design.jpg
Constructed on Atlantic Avenue in 1905 by builder John Mann, the house is modeled after the Rockefeller Cottage on Jekyll Island. Banker Fred W. Hoyt, his wife Kate, and their three boys, Charles, Willis & Wadleigh, resided here until Mr. Hoyt's death in 1927. The Everett Mizell family enjoyed a comfortable life in this grand home for the next half-century–and now it welcomes you to enjoy what they so loved.

The elegant Amelia Island Inn at Hoyt House offers 10 spacious guest rooms, a swimming pool and hot tub, public salons with original hand-tiled fireplaces, the  English Pub and full liquor license to service all of your libations.
Awards and Testimonials


"Better than 5 stars ....10 Stars Words cannot describe how amazing our experience was at the Hoyt House Bed and Breakfast /Amelia Island. This is truly a world class gem. We went for a belated birthday and left with lifelong friends. Rick and Tracy are one of a kind and truly put their heart and soul into their home and making your experience beyond 5 stars. The breakfast is better than any European cafe. The house is decorated with the finest furniture and world class bedding and toiletries. Every amenity is thought of and the grounds are stunning. The gardens and pool and hot tub is truly period piece resort but in 2020. Do not hesitate for a moment the Hoyt house is an escape and magical. The authentic inn keepers and robust breakfast and afternoon spirits made our trip as if we were visiting family."

"Can't say enough positives about our stay at Hoyt House My wife and I spent our anniversary in Fernandina Beach and stayed at the Hoyt House. The Inn was fantastic, very conscientious about Covid and had the most genuine and hospitable hostess--Tracey. She couldn't have been more accommodating, even picking up a bottle of Champagne I wanted, to surprise my wife on arrival. She made 2 excellent recommendations for dinners, but her breakfasts are truly not to be missed. Thank you very much for helping to make our weekend special. We will definitely be back."

Fantastic! Everything was wonderful about the Hoy House. The room was comfortable, the location great, and the food was the best we've ever had at a Bed and Breakfast. The pool area looks like a beautiful garden and was super comfortable and convenient. The Inn Keepers, Tracey and Ricky were the nicest folks and great hosts. We will definitely be back."

Our new favorite B&B! "We had an absolutely fabulous stay at the Hoyt House! Ricky and Tracy were wonderful hosts. The food was delicious, the room was clean and comfortable, the pool area was beautiful and well-tended. We loved the art and antiques in the house and learning more of the history from Tracy. We can't wait to come back again sometime soon!"

Disclaimer: this review is not based on our most recent stay. We HAVE stayed here 3 times and loved it every time! This weekend we were in town and stopped by just to buy a set of the amazing sheets the Hoyt House uses on their beds. We also stopped by to visit with the owners Ricky and Tracy because they are such wonderful people. We enjoyed our last stay so much, we came back the next year just to buy sheets and see the owners! I think this tells you what a top quality B&B this place is. We will be back again in November for our yearly stay?"

"Enjoyed our stay immensely. We had a wonderful stay at the Hoyt House celebrating our 30th anniversary. Rick and Tracy are exceptional hosts. The home is immaculate and beautiful. They've been able to find a nice balance handling the Covid-19 safety conditions. The fresh scones and breakfasts were wonderful too. We highly recommend this bed & breakfast."

First Class B&B with the Best Proprietors For our 28th anniversary, we wanted an upscale B&B on Amelia island. We have been virtually everywhere in Florida, and Amelia does a beautiful job with its beach access. You can read the history of this inn on their website and see all The pictures, but we asked our travel agent to help us since she has been spot on with every recommendation she has made on our behalf. She called after researching and said, “If you don’t go, I will!” Ricky and Tracey, the proprietors, are the perfect managers and owners. They know exactly what you need, have it ready, whether it is a reliable bicycle, a libation, a towel or just restaurant guidance. We care nothing for resorts for a plethora of reasons. Going to Hoyt House is like visiting friends who are genuinely glad to see you and want to make sure that you love the place they call home as much as they do. The happy hour at five, six days a week must not be missed. The stories that are exchanged amongst Ricky, Tracey and all the guests further confirm just how great the experience is. Everyone practices social distancing but there is never a loss for the feeling of intimacy that persists. That is a tall order, but it works and works very well. If you are looking for luxurious accommodations and gourmet breakfasts you will absolutely love this place. It is not pretentious but it is nicely upscale without feeling over the top. If there is such a thing as a B&B circuit in Florida, this would be my choice for the number one slot. Go, enjoy and relax. We will be back for certain!
