The Addison on Amelia is a tranquil 14-room boutique inn seamlessly blending the elegance of a bygone era with the modern amenities and conveniences the discriminating traveler expects. The inn is comprised of three antebellum style houses built around the perimeter of the property to enclose an enchanting courtyard. The meticulously restored main building was originally built for merchant Frank Simmons in 1876, while the other two homes were built in 1996 to compliment the architectural details of the main house. Private, semi-private and public porches overlooking Ash Street or our soothing fountain courtyard provide guests with a place to enjoy a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, al fresco dining or simply to relax amid the oasis of calm. Tranquil, romantic, evocative – hallmarks of the Bed and Breakfast experience and the Addison On Amelia. Understated hints of the tropics in the impeccably decorated guest rooms bring to mind Old Florida elegance with four-poster beds, rich hardwood floors and ceiling fans stirring a cool breeze. Just imagine yourself as a guest in an elegant turn-of-the-century home by the sea: warm, well-polished furnishings, tall ceilings, the rustle of silk draperies in the afternoon breeze and wicker chairs overlooking a quiet courtyard.
