Thanks to Scott Moore for this shot of the Bailey tree (one block down from us here at the Williams House) and the infamous story that goes along with it! Kate Bailey left her mark in the historic pirate town of Fernandina Beach, Florida with her elegant Victorian home. She also made a mark on the adjoining street. The ancient, majestic live oak tree that still stands in the middle of Ash Street is a testament to Kate’s will. When she learned the tree was scheduled to be cut down in order for Ash Street to be paved, legend has it that Kate sat on her porch with shotgun in hand and dared any city worker to cut down the tree.

Ahhh! Who’s up for a relaxing evening in the jacuzzi tub with some bubbly in our “Island Getaway” suite?
Thanks for the photo Marcus Berg of Unique Angles Photography!
The Getaway room has just been re-decorated and she is a beauty besides being comfy and gives off that “private, warm, soft, romantic bungalow” vibe! We love it and hope you will too!

Well, the wind is blowin’ harder now
Fifty knots of there abouts,
There’s white caps on the ocean.
And I’m watching for water spouts
It’s time to close the shutters
It’s time to go inside.
Thanks to Paul Krom for the great shot of the squall tonight! And ,,, Thanks to Jimmy Buffett for the lyrics!
