Amelia Island is made for leisurely walking or biking--at just 13 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, you can explore our Historic District, our beautiful parks, and our wide stretches of open sandy beaches-park that car and return to a more leisurely mode of transportation. Enjoy our many amenities-sit and rest or read a good book on our wrap-around verandah, sip cool beverages to refresh yourself after a bicycle tour, munch fresh-baked goodies to cure that sweet-tooth craving (you deserve it after a good healthy walk or ride, don't you?).
And remember our wine/social hour from 4-6 pm each afternoon, where you can meet other guests and plan your evening activities-get suggestions on where to dine (we have over 25 restaurants within a few moments walk), take that carriage ride through the Historic "Silk-Stocking" District, simply watch the world go by from our grand wrap-around verandah, or take a leisurely soak in our large Pool and Jacuzzi Spa.
You can request a picnic lunch and explore with a self-guided bike tour around the island. Catch some of our beautiful wildlife and learn a little history while you visit Fort Clinch State Park, staffed with park rangers in period Civil War costume, or travel the byways of our Amelia Island historic seaport, where you can see lovingly restored Victorian Era homes and buildings. Don't forget to take an afternoon boat tour with Amelia River Cruise or their ever-popular evening Sunset Cruise.
Venture further to the Talbot Island State Park, just south of Amelia Island. Stop by Kayak Amelia to participate in an up-close paddling adventure on the Intra-coastal Waterway, or for something truly unforgettable - take a fun tour, on electric-powered Segway Scooters, of the area, including historic Kingsley Plantation which dates back to 1814 (offered by Eco Motion Tours).
All this awaits you when you spend a few Memorable Days at Hoyt House. Golf, world class tennis, classic car shows, music festivals, antiques, turn of the century architecture, a lighthouse, national parks and beaches, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing, boating and bird watching await you on Amelia Island...all the good things in life!
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.
Hoyt House offers 10 spacious guest rooms, a heated swimming pool and hot tub, 4 public salons with original hand-tiled fireplaces, afternoon refreshments, bikes, a fully stocked video library and gently rocking porch swings. Luxurious leather sofas in front of the fireplace invite you to sit awhile and relax with a glass of your favorite beverage or listen to a piano serenade offered by a fellow guest.
The beautiful gardens include a heated pool with hot tub. Lounge chairs, umbrella shaded tables and an old fashioned gazebo complete the relaxing picture. What better place to spend a lazy afternoon. After a day at the beach, you can walk to 25 restaurants in The Historic District of Fernandina Beach. All just a short way from our front door.
The garden and Gazebo are often decorated for weddings and other special events hosted on the landscaped grounds of Hoyt House. The view from our front wrap-around veranda is of the historic St. Peter's Episcopal Church, built in 1861, and the site of many beautiful celebrations and gatherings. Come enjoy this charming home as much as we do.
