Originally built in 1886, the Amelia Schoolhouse Inn was the original school for Amelia Island. Operating as a school for nearly 50 years, the building, despite its prime location in the downtown area, floundered as a multi use property for decades. In 2018, the building was completely restored into a 17 room boutique inn complete with an upscale bar. With meticulous restoration of much of the original aspects of the building - including wood floors, the brick, and windows, the completely renovated Amelia Schoolhouse Inn will make you want to come back to the island time after time.

We love staying at boutique hotels, and ASI tops the list! It is a charming, inviting, and simply outstanding! From the floors to the incredibly high ceilings the renovation of this old schoolhouse is exquisite. Nothing was missed in its restoration and the theme is carried throughout the property with impeccable class. The warm and friendly, yet unobtrusive staff set a private as you want to be tone. The evening live music on the patio or in the lobby bar area, cleverly named the Principal’s Office, offer a relaxed cool vibe. It’s location was perfect for downtown access, and driving anywhere you want to be on the island is easy. If you’re visiting Amelia Island for any reason, stop looking and start booking with ASI. You won’t be disappointed!

Hotel's Favourite
When we decided to head to Fernandina Beach for a long weekend, people recommended staying further down the island on the water. But then I found photos and reviews for Amelia Schoolhouse Inn and knew right away that we had to stay here. Loved the history behind the building and it's in a perfect location to walk to everything we wanted. The staff was great and friendly every day. Room was spotless and picture perfect. Love the schoolhouse touches and details. Borrowed bikes one day to ride around the island, explored Fort Cinch, and just enjoyed the day. The Principal's Office was a great place to grab a quick drink and snack before heading out to dinner. Thank you for a great stay, we'll definitely be back!

Beautifully restored schoolhouse with exceptionally clean and well appointed rooms. Nice bar too. And walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Fernandina Beach. This is our new go to place to stay on the island.

My husband and I booked a long weekend stay after the beach house air b&b was canceled last minute by the owner. We were so disappointed that we weren’t staying right on the beach. To our surprise the Schoolhouse Inn turned out to be the perfect location! Just a 7 minute bicycle ride to the beach and a very short walk to all the best restaurants the island has to offer. The schoolhouse Inn was a beautiful place to stay, very clean, a lovely outdoor courtyard and the weather was perfect for enjoying the pool. Thank you Schoolhouse Inn for a wonderful stay.

My wife Wendy and I visited—-we cannot say enough good things about this outstanding establishment. Amanda, Tina and Taylor who shared greeting duties were unfailingly gracious and helpful. Historic touches throughout including a huge American flag on the second floor. Five stars doesn’t do Schoolhouse Inn justice. We rate it 10-stars!
