This house is typical of the Prairie Style of the 20's/30's. It is immaculately maintained by the owners, Tom and Ila Rae. Upon arrival, I was met by Ila Rae who offered several suggestions of things to do/restaurants in the area. Although I am a long time resident of the area, I was unfamiliar with Riverside/Five Points so this was... More

This gem is just like a walk back in time. A beautiful home with clean and quaint rooms. The owners are wonderful people! The food is outstanding and the coffee is brewed fresh each and every day. I would highly recommend this B&B for anyone who is looking for accommodations in the Jacksonville area.

One of the best things about this B&B is the location. It was just minutes drive away from downtown where I needed to go. Other than that, I was quite disappointed. The street it's on is a thoroughfare being very busy and loud. Late at night, cars raced loudly on nearby streets. The bathroom was okay but really needed updating... More

I've never had more pleasant accomodations at any B&B or hotel in my years of traveling. IIa Rae and Tom are knowledgeable with Florida history, water conservation, gardening and more. The Jenks House itself is beautiful preserved and the room was perfect. The breakfast both mornings contained fruit from their personal garden (which is a must see!) and not a... More

We loved this Bed and Breakfast. We have family very close by and it was wonderful to walk to their home. Tom and Ila Rae were most gracious and extremely delightful. They invited our children to breakfast on our last day there, which was a very thoughtful gesture. The inn is comfortable and full of charm. Both are willing and... More

We booked to stay at The Jenks House quite late, but we weren't disappointed. We were made to feel very welcome. Would recommend staying here to anyone, great breakfast where the hosts joined us, which was a nice touch. Close to local amenites for dinner in the evening. Nice and comfy bed.

Seriously, when have you ever slept on ironed sheets? Who would have known it makes such a difference? The Jenks House is a lovely property: immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, spacious. Tom and Ila Rae are sweet and helpful, clearly committed to ensuring you are comfortable and enjoy your stay. The rates were reasonable, and the accommodations quite comfortable. Breakfast, while...

We had a nice one night stand and enjoyed talking with Tom and having breakfast with him and Ila Rae in the morning. There are only two rooms and both have window air conditioning. If you like heavy coffee ask Tom to make it extra strong.

We stayed here last week on our return from a Mediterranean cruise. The flight was late and we're glad it was! We stayed in the Mission room (with vintage Mission chairs original to the house). I love the little touches of the past, from scrapbooks, an original tablecloth from the namesake 1930's restaurant, vintage barkcloth on the loungers, and so... More
