“Wonderful hosts, Lovely area”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

I'm not writing about a recent trip, though I could! My husband and I have stayed here over 10 times over the years. We're awfully close to Jacksonville, and don't have call to stay overnight much, or we'd have stayed here more!

Joan and Dan are delightful people and enjoy sharing their home with guests. Breakfast is always amazing - and they have lots of recommendations about where to go for dinner and anything you might want to do or know about Jacksonville.

The B&B is just steps away from the St. Johns and is a beautiful area for walking - with lots of little shops and interesting restaurants nearby.

We love the St. Johns House and recommend highly!!

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms - carriage house has its own entrance which is nice if you don't want to be in...

The owners are very gracious and Kingsley, the dog welcomes everyone. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Flexible times for breakfast were offered. The food was excellent. The room was comfortably furnished with the bath in the room. Coffee and tea were available in the room. You will enjoy your visit.

A true B&B...with owners who actually reside on the premises and actually use the house as their home. Guests are made to feel welcome. Rooms are depicted accurately in photos. We were in the Governor's. Joan was very helpful with dining suggestions...although our Thanksgiving meal at the Chart House was not very good. Breakfasts were good with a flair to the presentation. If traveling to Jacksonville, this would be a good choice. We were a bit concerned about the neighborhood when approaching the address, but the Avondale section really is quite lovely, with many places to walk/bike ride along the St. John river. We had wanted to stay in St. Augustine but the rates were so high, especially for the weekend part of Thanksgiving. This was a good alternative...about a 40 min. ride. Joan's recomendation for dinner in St. Augustine was top notch! La Pentola...wonderful!

Terrific option when visiting Jax. The hosts were accomodating and open but not obtrusive. The home is incredibly lovely--like staying in a well-furnished, historic period home. The room and bath was better than any hotel room. But the highlight has to be breakfast in the sun room--superb. We had a great and relaxing time. Highly recommend.

The downstairs is spacious. Breakfast was served in the charming sunroom and was fresh and delicious. The room was large and comfortable with nicely furnished bathroom and good plumbing. The hosts were very friendly. Good restauants are available locally. We would like to return.

We stayed here during our job hunt. The house is furnished elegantly, but comfortably. We visited during the Christmas season and the holiday decor was lovely. This house is located in the Historic district and is surrounded by wonderful old homes. The owners are friendly and the proprietess makes a wonderful breakfast in the morning. (In season, with citrus fruit from her own trees.) We would highly recommend this location for someone who wants to see the prettiest part of Jacksonville, short of driving to the beach. Close to downtown, shopping and great dining.
