Club Continental

2143 Astor Street , Orange Park, FL 32073 USA (Show map)

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.

Beautiful setting

4.6 on February 01, 2017

We lived in the Club continental Villas over 40 years ago. Was great to return and see everything as beautiful as it was then and better. Great place to stay in all respects except room coffee. I would expect much better in an establishment of this caliber. Other than than service would be a 5.


Military Friendly

5 on January 30, 2017

This was the first time that I have stayed here and I can say that I look forward to coming back. I stayed in one of the River Suites and the view from the balcony was amazing especially at night. The room was very spacious and well kept. The grounds were absolutely beautiful with the live oaks and Spanish moss. There is a small tavern on site which sits on the river as well. As stated in the title, they are military friendly which is always very appreciated my veterans such as myself.


Charming

4.0 on January 24, 2017

If you love antiques and understand that the quirks and slight imperfections are part of the charm, this is your kind of place. The property is beautiful, the rooms are spacious. We were in the French room looking out at the St John's. I grew up in the area and we stayed here while in town visiting. We loved it and would definitely stay here again. We didn't get the chance to have dinner, but enjoyed the breakfast options and the bar.


First time stay

4.6 on January 21, 2017

Property was very nice and we enjoyed the awesome view from our room. Breakfast was 5 star rating along with the service. Would for sure recommend to out of town guest and family.


Always a pleasant stay

My wife and I have stayed in several B&B's. This is our favorite one to stay at. It has always been so relaxing to stay here. The property is so beautiful and so well taken care of. The two pools are nice to lay around and soak up some sun. If you stay in one of the river suites you have a wonderful view of beautiful St. John's river. The complimery breakfast is always hot and fresh. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to have a nice relaxing stay.


Unique and very nice

A CHRISTMAS GET-A-WAY

Lovely holiday decorations and majestic 300-year-old oaks were the highlights of this Christmas get-a-way. Rich in history and reasonable in price, this property has great value.

Visiting Family at Christmas

5 on December 29, 2016

Great room. Dinner was very good in the dining room. Could not have asked for a better stay unless we could have changed the weather. Beautifully decorated for the season and the grounds are breathtaking. Very peaceful and soothing escape from the hustle and bustle of the 'outside' world.

Innkeeper Response
We enjoyed having you at Club Continental and we hope you enjoyed your stay! We’d love for you to share your experience with other travelers. Happy New Year!


A perfect stay for a wedding.

4.4 on December 27, 2016

My husband and I (along with many family members) stayed at the Club Continental the night before and night after our wedding. We stayed at the river suites and they were beautiful! The view over the St. John's river was amazing! My bridal party and I got ready in the Continental Suite and Mexican Room which was perfect because there is a door connecting the two rooms so we had plenty of space for hair and makeup. The bathroom in the Continental Suite was incredibly beautiful and the terrace that overlooks the ceremony area was also perfect! All of the rooms were charming and and definitely romantic. I would highly recommend staying here (especially for a wedding!)

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review, we are very pleased to add to your special day. Consider coming back on your anniversary! We would love to see you again. Congratulations!!!!!
