Bed and Breakfast, pets welcome, and 1 block to the ocean, it doesn't get much better than the Fig Tree Inn! Spouse and I spent two nights at the Fig Tree Inn on the recommendation of a friend. Our expectations were met and exceeded by our stay at this charming little inn by the sea. Lori was friendly and helpful on the phone prior to our visit, when we had to change dates at the last minute, and welcomed us at the door. She is the best with caring and guest hospitality. The inn is infused with Old Florida charm, with every room (about 7 or 8) a different theme, in a truly unique house. We stayed downstairs in the Seaside room, which was roomy and comfortable, and the decor in our room and throughout the entire house was impeccable. The upstairs rooms have a separate outside entrance for added privacy, and a large patio upstairs, though we made friends with our upstairs neighbors. Breakfast was most pleasant, in a separate protected patio area with large fans overhead. Fresh coffee, pastries or biscuits greeted us in the mornings, along with yogurt, granola, fresh fruit and OJ, and home made blueberry and fig compotes to choose from. Included is a small bowl of fresh figs from the ancient fig tree out back. It was delicious. The inn being pet-friendly was an added bonus. Colorful flowers adorn the outside of the building, all planted by Lori, with a large front porch and comfortable rocking chairs and a swing. We enjoyed sitting out front in the early evening, and walking our dog at the beach in the mornings. It is in a working class neighborhood, and there were some walkers, stragglers and bicycles and skateboards around. Despite the distractions, we felt safe at all times while there. Thank you Lori, for a wonderful experience. We look forward to returning, and I highly recommend the Fig Tree Inn when visiting Jacksonville beach.
