The Riverdale Inn went far and above to be helpful to us! They worked diligently to accommodate us during a recent trip to Jacksonville. My husband and daughter traveled to go with me to a medical visit at the Mayo Clinic, and we had a travel dilemma: our sweet little 12 year old chihuahua had surgery the same week we... More

This is our second time to this historic bed & breakfast. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The beds are comfortable, the environment charming, and the hospitality most welcome. You won't even need to drive to enjoy the surrounding area so bring some walking shoes. There are historic parks and architecture, a wonderful museum, and a few blocks of... More

We stayed one night in the St John room. Great experience. Room was large and comfortable. Great king sized mattress. The whole Inn was nicely decorated and the employees were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

One of two fabled homes remaining, providing a wonderful ambiance. We arrived around 3pm and were greeted in a warm and welcoming way. We stayed in Unit 1, Deluxe King Room with walk-in shower. The room was very clean, nicely furnished and in the beginning a little noisy till I figured out the air condition fan has a quiet mode.... More

Cozy and comfortable is this converted Mansion that is now a fabulous Inn with ten unique guest rooms. Proprietors are friendly and knowledgeable on the area. Great place to take an early morning walk in the park next door to the property. Night life is in walking distance with great choices for dining.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riverdale Inn. Linda is very personable; easy smile, warm personality, you kinda wished she would be your next door neighbor, a friend. The breakfast was delicious; very crisp bacon, delicious omelet! The location of the Inn is great!....close to the River and within walking distance of neighborhood restaurants and shops. Very impressed with... More

This was our second visit to the Riverdale Inn. The Inn is spotless, the staff most helpful and the location is great (about a 100 yards from the huge and beautiful St. Johns River). It is located in cosmopolitan neighborhood with shops and great restaurants and it is quite and peaceful. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Riverdale.

We had a wonderful time getting to know the city of Jacksonville. Riverdale Inn is a beautiful B&B. Linda & her family are a treasure to that area. You can see pride of ownership in every detail through out the house. We will be back!

We stayed in room #6, and were very pleased with its comfort and amenities. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the air conditioning was very effective. There was a nice love seat in the room, along with a small desk for a computer, and a small table with two chairs. Be aware that it is a 3 story... More
