What a great B&B! Suite was really. Ice, all the expected amenities & services there. The breakfasts were stellar. Service during breakfast really well done. The B&B is quiet, in a quiet area, and a very short walk to 4 nice sidewalk cafés / restaurants. We consider the Casa de Solana to now be a destination - we will return just to stay at the B&B.
The experience was one we will never forget. The house and gardens were beautiful. We exchanged wedding vows at the gazebo. The staff was very friendly and made all the wedding arrangements. Very glad we chose The Hoyt House to make our dreams come true. Debbie and William
My fiance and I recently stayed here during our visit to Jacksonville where we went to Rockville. During our stay the Jenks were more than accommodating. The room was gorgeous and the adjoining bathroom was clean and well-stocked. It even had a huge bathtub which sadly we never got around to enjoying. In addition to the cozy bedroom spacious bathroom they also had a mini fridge for us to use downstairs. On top of all of that they made a gourmet breakfast each morning which in my opinion is much better than any hotel food you'll ever have. I have and will continue to recommend this house to everyone I know.
They had so much to offer ,from the pool and hot tub to a wonderful breakfast ,and the rooms are the best and oh so clean,,,David ,may of 2016
We stayed at the Hoyt House for 2 nights during the recent Shrimp Festival. This B&B is really wonderful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very clean and comfortable, including the snuggly cotton robes. There is a beautiful pool that we enjoyed as well. They have 3 pups who are immaculate and very well behaved, that you may get to enjoy. All in all a great weekend and great B&B.
Absolutely wonderful B&B, it is so quiet and clean. The innkeeper Myrta was very helpful and the staff was very accommodating. If you are in Fernandian Beach Fl this is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are very spacious, quiet and clean. They have a wonderful pool and spa. The inn is very relaxing. Will stay there again in the future.
Club Continental is one of the hidden treasures that the Jacksonville area of Florida offers. Club Continental is a wonderful old estate that is tucked away in Orange Park. It is situated on the St. John river and has fantastic views of the river.
The Jenks House is in a lovely area of Jacksonville, the hosts Tom and Ila Rae Merten were cordial and helpful, and the breakfasts were delicious. The Trade Fair coffee was good and just right for someone used to German coffee. I enjoy visiting Jacksonville in the spring and the fall the most. There is a lovely zoo, a fantastic privately owned bookstore called Chamblins, the beaches are a bit further away and there are lovely places to walk along St. John's River. I will definitely consider the Jenks House on my next trip to Florida. B.M.G.
My husband and I stayed at this fabulous B&B for one night. We enjoyed the bar area and the complimentary cocktails! The room and inn were very clean, bed linens soft and comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!
We love going to Hoyt House and have been several times over the last 4 years. We always enjoy the guest cocktail reception hour- we would love it if they still had the cheese/ fruit available also. There is ample popcorn freshly popped and usually a fresh made cake always out and accessible- also a nice munchies basket. Arrival day cookies delish! Breakfasts are amazing! Like the new set up of fruit/ granola/ yogurt buffet in addition to made to order entrees. The delectable sticky bun never disappoints!
Located close to the harbor and just a short walk from great restaurants and shops, the Blue Heron Inn is the perfect home away from home for enjoying Fernandina Beach. We appreciated David & Julie's good cooking and friendly service. And we relished parking the car when we arrived and getting back in two days later. Lots to do and see. Our favorite was a day outing on Cumberland Island via the Lucy Ferguson ferry. The Blue Heron is a special Inn, in a special place.
We enjoyed our stay very much, beautyful house, delicius breakfast with fresh juice, roasted coffee, very good location and Tom and Ila is amazing people :-) We can indeed recommend this B&B to all.
This B&B is located on the oldest street in the United States. It has a beautiful garden in which one can sit. The inside is opulently furnished and decorated, and the dining room as beautiful murals painted on the wall befitting the old Spanish heritage of the city. We asked for a room on the main floor and were given a suite, with bed and living room. The bedroom was the main room of the original structure from the 18th century and the elegant shower stall was built into a niche in the bedroom which we were told was originally the kitchen of the old home. Breakfast was delicious. It was a perfect stay. We highly recommend Casa de Solana.
Fantastic! My husband and I spent 3 nights at The Jenks House. The room was fabulous, the food great and the hosts were the best. We would highly recommend The Jenks House as a very comfortable place. We took a chance on this B & B, just choosing from a website. We were very happy that we did. Don't past it up. Gordon & Kathy
Exceptional service in a beautiful B&B. The owners have paid great attention to detail. Wonderful breakfasts and cocktail hour included. Great location, walking distance to shops and restaurants, Stayed in the Charles room and it was perfect. Can make a small office space to work if you desire. Coffee maker outside the room. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc. available. Parking (which is a big plus). Top notch!
The Jenks House In Jacksonville is a gem. The Jenks House is located right by a wonderful part of Jacksonville...the charming neighborhoods of Riverside and Avondale which are known for historic residential architecture, cool shops, and popular restaurants. It is a convenient drive to downtown Jacksonville, I-95, and the airport, and it is a very nice area just for strolling. The property maintains its vintage Arts & Crafts / Mission / Craftsman-era features and details. It is spotlessly clean. The queen-sized bed in my room was memorably comfortable with a great shower in my bathroom. My hosts were friendly during the delicious breakfast, and gave me independence and privacy at all other times. Highly recommended. I will stay there again.
