About the Inn

CENTRALLY LOCATED

ALIVE WITH HISTORY

Nestled in Green Cove Springs between Jacksonville and St. Augustine on the West bank of the St. Johns River you will find peace and tranquillity at River Park Inn. Laced with lots of local history about the area and completely furnished with beautiful antiques, you will feel like you really came home; yet there are all the modern amenities that you have come to expect in modern hotels including high speed internet.

All of the rooms have a private in-suite bathroom and access to the guest refrigerator and microwave. A full hot breakfast and free refreshments are always included. River Park Inn is a perfect home-base whether you are staying in town for a quiet escape or branching out to explore points of local interest in Jacksonville, Middleburg, Fleming Island, Orange Park, Palatka, Penny Farms or The World Golf Village and the beaches of historic St. Augustine.

The inn offers a less complicated, more genuine experience and a home-like hotel alternative where you will enjoy the slower pace of small town America in “Old Florida” with its waterfront, boat slips, fishing pier, pool and picnic areas.

Relax comfortably in the porch swing, rock in the double rocker, or perch on the second story verandah and enjoy the gentle river breeze. Pick up a free self-guided historic walking tour brochure from our front porch and explore the living history of small town America and find out why it once called the “Saratoga of the South”. Observe festivities at Spring Park and visit local shops and eateries, or spend the afternoon at one of the outlet malls nearby.

Pat and Dale are resident Owners/Innkeepers who live on the third floor of property. There are 5 guest rooms each with a private in suite bathroom. The building entrance is elevated and off grade with four steps and a welcoming porch. Two of the guest rooms are on the first floor and three are on the second floor accessed by a lovely staircase.

The inn does not offer mobility accessibility, accessible roll-in showers or hearing accessibility in any of the common areas or guest rooms.

Recognized by the Florida Department of State as a Florida Heritage Site and 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.

Innkeepers Pat and Dale by River Park Inn sign

“A welcome retreat from the chaos and proof there is still some sanity left.”

– Marie and Mike from Boyton Beach

“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’.”

– Bob and Carolyn

“Staying here brought back many memories of my childhood home – such wonderful memories.”

– Gail from Fernandina Beach

The inn is within easy walking distance to the public spring fed pool or the business district for dining and shopping. Guests may alternately take a self guided historic walking tour or stroll the banks of the mighty St. Johns River where visitors may swim in the pool {during season}, enjoy picnics in the park and fish from the fishing pier equipped with modern boat slips.

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!
