Circa 1885. The living and dining room fireplace tiles of this Italianate-style mansion bring to life scenes from Shakespeare's works and "Aesop's Fables." Other features include polished hardwood floors, intricately carved moldings and eight other fireplaces that grace spacious rooms. Each of the guest rooms is furnished with a four-poster or canopied king, queen or twin bed, Jacuzzi and clawfoot tubs or showers. Guests can step outside to enjoy an inviting courtyard, swimming pool and gardens bursting with roses, palms and magnolias. The Fairbanks House was named Florida's "Most Sophisticated and Romantic Bed & Breakfast" by The Best Romantic Escapes in Florida. The inn is a smoke-free property, which includes the grounds.
