Cookie Tour Announcement


Change is hard

Our bed and breakfast association has decided to go in a different direction for community fundraising this year.  The association is made up of individual small inns with varying resources, funds, goals and business plans.  These elements change over time, and a regrouping is sometimes necessary.  Such is the case with our bed and breakfasts this year.  A few members have withdrawn from our association, and as such, after exploring many possibilities, we recognized that we would be unable to put on a tour about which we could both be proud and raise enough money for our community partners.  So, after an untold number of tours, thousands of visitors, many thousand cookies baked, and tens of thousands of dollars raise for local charities, the Tour is taking a pause.  May we suggest that you still join us that weekend (12/6-9) for the very festive and always excellent Dickens on Centre event.

We are no less dedicated to raising funds for community organizations, so we have created an online event that you won’t want to miss.  August 20 – 31, you will be able to purchase gift certificates on this website for a midweek stay for two at one of our three member-inns for $150.  Your stay will be in a room valued at $250 or higher.  The beneficiary of this sale will be Take Stock In Children, an amazing Nassau County organization that provides mentoring, scholarship and hope to children of low income families.  You can help change a life with your purchase.  The gift certificates will “go live” in our online gift shop August 20th at 10 a.m.  There will be 12 available from each member inn, Fairbanks House, Amelia Island Williams House, and Addision on Amelia.  They will be available until end of day August 31st or until they are sold out.  Thanks for continuing to support our community fundraising efforts.
