We spent one night at this delightful B&B recently and would recommend it highly to others. The facility is very comfortable and inviting; while maintaining a nice meld between modern and period features. The only thing that exceeds the facility are your hosts. They make certain to assist you in any way during your stay. Breakfast was early, very tasty,... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Jenks House. Unfortunately, it was only for one evening, but I hope to return for a longer stay sometime soon. The house is absolutely beautiful, and Tom and Ila Rae were delightful hosts. If you are vegan, do yourself a favor and stay here. I have had countless bland or downright awful meals... More

We are happy to soon be able to call these folks neighbors. We decided to stay "in the neighborhood" on a house hunting venture, and while we didn't settle on the exact neighborhood, we've found wonderful local friends. Tom and Ila Rae are wonderful hosts, and their home is simply lovely. It's in a great neighborhood to explore the restaurants... More

One of the nicest B&Bs I've stayed at. The hosts, food, and home are wonderful. Home is super clean and nicely renovated. The sheets are ironed, there was fresh squeezed orange juice from the oranges grown in the garden, and lovely quilts, tableclothes and other touches.

If you want to experience warm Southern hospitality this is the place to go. We were made most welcome from the moment we arrived, Tom and Ila Rae could not have been more helpful. Delicious varied breakfasts, lovely room, plenty of hot water, and the run of the house. The neighbourhood in also interesting, and we were very happy to... More

The home is lovely, furnished tastefully with just a touch of whimsy. Our hosts went way out of their way to give us requested advice at JAX, help us mail items home, and provide directions as we left. I really enjoyed their interesting, well informed conversation, too. The gourmet breakfast sets a standard I doubt any of our other accommodations... More

We live in Jacksonville, but wanted a special celebration for our wedding anniversary, so decided to spend the night at Jenks B&B. Lovely and convenient B&B in a beautiful area of our city. Wonderful accomodations and inn-keepers! Highly recommned Jenks for any vacation or "stay-cation".

After 3 nights a week here I almost hate coming home. Tom and Ila Rae seem to love running this B and B in their beautifully restored home. You just never know with whom you will be sharing the fabulous breakfast table. To think my company wanted me to stay at hotel with powdered eggs for breakfast. So pleased I... More

Spending 3 nights at the Jenks House was one of the best decisions of our recent Fla. vacation. We left this delightful B&B feeling like we were leaving family.

Fresh squeezed orange juice, delicious vegetarian breakfast, warm and welcoming hosts - we didn't just have a nice B&B stay, we made new friends. Ila Rae and Tom couldn't have been more our type of people; we liked them so much, we lingered over breakfast for hours chatting and getting to know one another. Not only are they wonderful human...
