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.

Overbite stay at Club Continental

4.8 on May 14, 2017

My wife and Iand both of our daughters, along with my sister all visited the Orange Park, Florida area this week. We really enjoyed staying at Club Continental. The food service was excellent, and the rooms were very clean. We liked that it seemed more like a home and not a hotel. We will stay there again if our travels take us back to that area.


BEST REST IN FLORIDA

Very peaceful and a wonderful place to relax. Breakfast was a plus each morning. The staff was friendly and made you feel at home. We will return and hope it is soon. Very convenient and just far enough away from the hustle.Unique in so many ways. Beds are comfortable with heavenly sheets. What a lovely trip! Judy S.

The courtyard is beautiful. Our room was nicely decorated with hardwood floors. It is a lovely place that I think would be fantastic for weddings or special events.


Great !

Beautiful Riverfront Mansion to celebrate Mother's 100th birthday!

4.6 on April 16, 2017

All the family from all parts of the country gathered for several days at the Club Continental in Orange Park to celebrate Mother's 100th Birthday. Special events were handled by the staff superbly. Hats off and many thanks to Jacob, Bonnie, and Carrie for their excellent attention and professionalism! The setting is fantastic and it's right on the St. John's River with dozens and dozens of Live Oaks scatterred through the property. Thanks to all.
