Food and Wine Magazine featured an article on the Top Ten B&B’s in America this summer and the Williams House was listed as the number two in on their list. Yahoo then picked up this article and put it on their website under travel and again listed the Williams House as one of the top ten Inns in America. Our internet traffic picked up considerably and we have had numerous people call to congratulate us, and others to book rooms at our Inn based on these rankings. It is always a pleasure for us to receive such an honor and we know we have to earn it with every guest and the way they experience the Williams House. A few weeks ago we were sitting on the front porch with a couple who were married at the Williams house one year ago, Ken and Joann. They were kind enough to share a bottle of very nice champagne as we relived their beautiful and memorable wedding. Like many couples they find that friends and family treasure the memories created by having their wedding at our B&B and enjoy the special interaction and experience of staying here. They said wedding guests not only remember where the wedding was held but also which room they stayed in. We really enjoy the personal relationships we develop with guests and it is perhaps the most rewarding part of our job. It’s always fun to see a returning guest knowing we will have the opportunity to catch up on their lives and share what’s been going on in the B&B and the area. We appreciate the honor bestowed on the Williams House by Food and Wine Magazine and Yahoo and look forward to providing an excellent experience to many new and returning guests in the near future.

It was a pleasure recently to receive an award certificate from Trip Advisor for having achieved a 4.5 star ( out of 5 ) rating from our guests. We consider it a challenge and part of our mission to both create the service and experience at a five star level and to please guests sufficiently to have them take time to provide a review. As we start our sixth year of owning and operating the Williams House, we have continued to focus on our guest experience and anticipating their needs and wants. Of course we don’t get it right every time, but we believe the 4.5 out of 5 rating is a signal that most of what we do works well for our guests. We appreciate all our previous guests who have provided feedback and for the favorable comments you gave us. We also appreciate the honesty of the occasional guest who has not been satisfied and we have used these opportunities to continue improving.
The Williams House also was listed by Florida Monthly Magazine’s October issue for where to “stay and play” in Florida’s unique hotels, resorts and Bed and Breakfast Inns. We are always delighted to represent a different experience for travelers and guests who are looking for something unique and enjoyable. Historic Fernandina Beach, the 1856 Williams House, historic tours, the museum, Fort Clinch and the numerous large live oaks help create a feeling of going back in time and experiencing a little bit of what it was like to live on this Island in the 1800′s. Of course, you can then slip into the modern amenities of the Inn and feel like 2010! We would love for you to come and join us at the Williams House.
