About

Nestled on the banks of the St. Johns River in Orange Park, Florida is this extraordinary resort and private club. Built in 1923 as the winter home of Caleb Johnson, heir to the Palmolive Soap Company, The Club Continental is now a romantic and intimate Hotel, Private Club, and Special Events Venue. Towering, 300 year old Live Oaks draped with Spanish moss, flowering hibiscus trees, sweeping green lawns, flower beds and gurgling fountains surround the centerpiece, a grand Mediterranean style mansion with stucco walls, arches, and red-tiled roof. Twenty-two guest rooms offer a reprieve from the hustle and bustle. Seven tennis courts and three pools await your playful side. Enjoy a gourmet lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch in the Restaurant. The Club is also a perfect venue for your next private event, whether an intimate party for eight or a lavish affair for three hundred.

This was an such a treat. Service was outstanding and the room were exceptional. We had a wonderful breakfast. The view from the river suites made you feel like you were floating on the water.


The only place to stay in Orange Park

4.8 on December 02, 2014

My wife and I travel monthly to Orange Park to check in on her elderly parents. We have stayed in all of the chain hotels plus Club Continental, and Club Continental has become our permanent choice for lodging. The rooms are gracious and spacious -- I especially like the River Suites for their balconies right on the St. Johns, a lovely place for morning coffee, though the rooms in the Mansion all have individual charm. Breakfast is rather basic by B&B standards, but the setting is attractive and the coffee, fresh fruit, juices, cereals, and breads serve just fine. In all, highly recommended, and thoroughly unique for the area.


Great play to stay and eat.

A great getaway

5 on November 24, 2014

This was a lovely place to get away for a day with a beautiful view and friendly staff. The rooms were clean and on a cold night it was a warm, cozy place to be. A wonderful view when eating and some great food too!


Love Club Continental ! Won't consider anywhere else ! ( Unless there isn't a vacancy !)

5 on November 22, 2014

I absolutely love evrything about the Club Continental. Each room -- and I have stayed in several over the past year --- is so beautifully and uniquely appointed, it is difficult to choose a favorite! I do love waking up to the sunrise on the river. The grounds are beautiful and serene - perfect for relaxation! The service is warm, and quickly responsive. The dining room offers a varied and deicious menu in an elegant setting. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else--- unless they are completely booked -- so it is a good idea to plan ahead in order to not be disappointed.


Beautiful Place!

4.2 on November 17, 2014

The Club Continental was beautiful. All the staff were extrnely friendly and very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.


A Florida Jewel

4.0 on November 16, 2014

It was our 49th Anniversary and what a lovely place to celebrate. The property, from our room to the grounds, were picture perfect. Everyone we had contact with could not have been nicer or more helpful. Would love to go back again and again.


Best choice for weddings!

5 on November 15, 2014

Where do I begin?? We stayed upstairs in the Winterbourne Inn. It's a gorgeous Victorian home and is preserved immaculately. I walked in the room after check in to the fragrantly clean smell of fabuloso. Everything I needed to get ready was there. They truly thought of everything. From the mini fridge, to the old timey full length mirror, (excellent photo prop) down to the special hook over the door to photograph your wedding dress hanging on its own. The food was to die for! We even talked about becoming wedding crashers just to eat there! :-) The service was super friendly and had everything to do with the evening running smoothly and guests totally enjoying themselves. We are regular people, we have 5 children between the two of us, so price was an important factor. Winterbourne was very reasonable and worth so much more than they charge. We recommend it 100 times infinity!
