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. The inn is just five miles from the Clay County Fairgrounds that hosts the Scottish Highland Games in February, the Clay County Fair in April and many other attractions throughout the year. Shoppers will enjoy the outlet malls just 20 minutes away on State Road 16 near I-95 exit #318 north of St. Augustine.
Across the street from the Inn, in Spring Park, the historic warm water 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. In addition to the spring and the pool, the park features a wonderful playground and numerous picnic pavilions. It hosts the Riverfest Memorial Day celebrtion in May as well as a variety of other community events.
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 fishing pier equipped with modern boat slips.
