My husband and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary with a weekend getaway to the Jacksonville area. This B&B was the perfect little place for us to call home for a few days. The room was cute and the hospitality was superb. The inn is walking distance to the landing, a museum, a weekend arts market, and a quaint little... More

What a wonderful bed and breakfast with homemade goodies every morning plus the willingness to make poached eggs on request. High tea was wonderful on our second afternoon with an assortment of sandwiches and sweets. Location is only a few blocks from the Cummer Museum with Italian and English Gardens and a trolley is nearby to take you to the... More

Carolyn, Lisa and Eric are all amazing caretakers! Breakfast and High Tea were the best! Accommodations are very clean and bed very comfortable! We had the Oak Room on the back side was very quiet! Front rooms can be noisy from the street traffic if you are not use to that. Waking distance to the Cummer Museum and we rode... More

The location is good - downtown Jax two blocks from the river. However, if you are looking for the typical upscale quality of a bed and breakfast you may want to stay elsewhere. This is an old house that has been converted to a B&B. The window with old wooden sill IN the shower was a bit odd, and kind... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Carriage House with our young children. I had bought a voucher on Living Social for this inn, figuring it would be somewhere we could wind down after a trip to Disney. If I had known the lack of quality and unfriendliness of the innkeepers, I never would have wasted my money. The carriage house... More

My husband and I had a great time this past weekend at Riverdale Inn. We had a really nice room w/ a comfy bed and great A/C. The house smelled like candles and baked desserts morning, noon, and night! Breakfast was home cooked and delicious. The tea at noon was a really nice surprise...fresh baked scones, muffins, and cookies with... More

This is a top notch Bed and Breakfast Inn. The hosts were excellant and friendly. The dinner is suberp in taste and cooked home made. The peacefulness and quiet was wonderful to embrace. We will be coming back for another stay.
