This Green Cove Springs Bed and Breakfast Inn is centrally located in Northeast Florida near St. Augustine, minutes from World Golf Village, and convenient to Orange Park, Jacksonville FL and the Atlantic Ocean. On the west bank of the St. Johns River waterfront, with its boat slips, fishing pier and scenic picnic areas, the inn offers a less complicated, more genuine experience allowing you to enjoy the slower pace of Green Cove Springs and small-town America.
Relax comfortably in the porch swing, rock in the double rocker, or perch on the second story verandah and enjoy the gentle river breeze. Observe festivities at Spring Park, take the historic walking tour and visit local eateries, or one of the outlet malls.
As a contributing site on the National Register of Historic Places, the Inn's restored 1880's accommodations are tastefully decorated throughout with antiques. Unlike hotel and motel rooms, each room in this lodging establishment is home-like with a unique character or memorable theme. You will truly feel you came as a guest and left as a friend at this charming home where "memories are made"...a perfect "get away" isolated in a storybook place from a time when grand hotels and paddle wheelers flourished.
Formerly Cottage A for the more "retiring guests" of the famous Clarendon Hotel, our restored 1880's lodging and accommodations continue in that fine tradition offering five clean, comfortable guest rooms all furnished in that bygone era but each with its own private bathroom and modern amenities. Reminisce amidst the vintage decor, high ceilings and heart of pine flooring. Meanwhile, enjoy cable TV, wireless internet access, ceiling fans, central heat and air, delicious hot breakfasts and refreshing afternoons in the riverfront park. Better yet, reserve the spacious Master Suite with its own sitting room and two person whirlpool. On cold days relax in the warmth from the gas log fire in the parlor or when it's a little warmer, catch a river breeze on the casual second story verandah.
Across the street, in Spring Park, the historic medicinal spring still flows at a reported 3,000 gallons/minute supplying the chemical free community pool which feeds a gentle stream as it winds through the riverfront park before emptying into the broad and breathtaking St. Johns River.
Within easy walking distance to the business district for dining, guests may alternately take a self guided historic walking tour or stroll the banks of the mighty St. Johns River where visitors enjoy picnics in the park and fish from the new fishing pier equipped with modern boat slips.
- "A welcome retreat, (say Marie and Mike from Boyton Beach,) from the chaos and proof there is still some sanity left."
- Bob and Carolyn write: "We've been coming here for 5 years. Thanks for your warmth, great breakfasts and hospitality. River Park Inn is our favorite 'away from home spot'."
- Gail from Fernandina Beach reminisced: "Staying here brought back many memories of my childhood home - such wonderful memories."
So if you are weary of contrived experiences and looking for something more genuine, slow down and include the River Park Inn Bed and Breakfast in your personal "get away" or special event plans.
River Park Inn, where wonderful memories are made or even recalled!
