A Unique Boutique Hotel Experience

Located in a prime location in downtown Fernandina Beach on historic Amelia Island, the Amelia Schoolhouse Inn was originally built as the first school on the island in 1886. Designed by acclaimed architect Robert Sands Schuyler and known to all as "Schoolhouse No. 1", it ceased being a school later in the 20th century. After languishing around being a mix-used property for many decades, the dream was cast in 2017 to turn the "Old Schoolhouse" back into something the island could be proud of. By doing a complete restoration of much of the original items such as the windows, heart of pine floors, and brick, the Amelia Schoolhouse Inn brought back the original luster of the past and combined it with the modern amenities of today.

With 17 guest rooms, a pool, a courtyard with a putting green, and an upscale bar named "The Principal's Office", the Amelia Schoolhouse Inn promises to provide all the amenities a boutique inn should have along with being in a superb location within walking distance to over 30 restaurants and many more shops.
