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.
This is a wonderful B & B. Myers and Deborah have made an inviting and welcoming home to overnight at. The amenities are fabulous and their breakfast, especially the sticky buns is delicious. A return visit will definitely be in our trip planning.
We had an outstanding stay. Julie is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us good advice for each day of our stay. What a terrific cook she is. Each breakfast was better than the last. Our room was immaculate. The setting for the inn is lovely and very close to the downtown area.
I really enjoyed my time at The Jenks House. I stayed there for 4 nights in mid-February on the first leg of a longer trip through northern Florida. The house is beautiful, my room was quite nice, and there was a lovely sunroom for reading. The house is about 3 miles from downtown Jacksonville and about 1 mile from the Cummer I walked to most of my destinations, but there also is decent bus service within a few blocks of the house. The Mertons are lovely people and I really enjoyed talking to them in the morning over the imaginative breakfasts that Ila Rae prepared.
We stayed at The Hoyt House on Amelia Island,Florida for one week and wished it was longer. It was advertised as "A luxury Inn" and that it was. My wife and I have stayed at numerous B & B's throughout the US and Europe and have never had a better experience.Where do I begin: within a 2 minute walk to downtown featuring 25-30 restaurants and wonderful boutiques,a staff catering to the very smallest detail,amazing breakfast and cocktail hour in their English Pub,beautiful pool and spa not to mention the gorgeous restoration and furnishing of the Hoyt House. This is definitely a high recommendation site.
The home is very charming! The details that Tom and Ila Rae maintained of the original features of the home were beautiful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Speaking of Tom and Ila Rae, they are a delight! Such quirky, kind hosts. And their attention to detail is impeccable. We asked for breakfast including fruit and veggies, and boy, did they aim to please! Both days we had fresh squeezed tangelo and grapefruit juices and delicious veggie breakfast creations. It's also wonderful because it's in a historic neighborhood with lots of places to walk! From restaurants and bars, to museums and parks. It can't be beat!
Very nice B&B. High Tea/English Tea was excellent. Room was very nice.....bathroom was very tiny! It is right on the edge of main street in town so location is perfect to walk to everything. Inn Keepers were very nice, friendly and even hosted a happy hour at their bar. Breakfast was great....much better than most B&B's we have experienced Many selections to choose from. I would go back again. If you do go, make a reservation for dinner...as restaurants are very busy.
Beautiful, quiet, and peaceful stay. Great location allows for a walk along the St. John River. Enjoyed the beautiful restaurant and a very good full breakfast. We stayed in the Winchester room which has a beautiful view of the river through three hundred year old oak trees. We will be back some day.
