My husband and I moved to Florida this past week and needed a comfortable, safe, quiet place to stay on our long journey. The Jenks House proved all of those things and more. Tom and Ila Rae, the owners, were lovely and extremely accommodating. The rooms were clean, fresh and spacious and the entire home was a beautiful historic retreat.... More

Before a recent trip to Florida, I was challenged when trying to find accommodations for one night in Jacksonville. Not because there were few hotel rooms available but because I wanted a place that was charming, comfortable and a little bit different than the average hotel room. We booked a room at The Jenks House Bed and Breakfast and enjoyed... More

I really enjoyed my time at The Jenks House. I stayed there for 4 nights in mid-February on the first leg of a longer trip through northern Florida. The house is beautiful, my room was quite nice, and there was a lovely sunroom for reading. The house is about 3 miles from downtown Jacksonville and about 1 mile from the... More

The home is very charming! The details that Tom and Ila Rae maintained of the original features of the home were beautiful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Speaking of Tom and Ila Rae, they are a delight! Such quirky, kind hosts. And their attention to detail is impeccable. We asked for breakfast including fruit and veggies, and boy, did... More

Our evening at the Jenks House was one of our vacation highlights. Tom and Ila Rae are so warm and friendly. They joined us for breakfast and we learned a lot about the history of the area and the home that they have lovingly restored. Breakfast was tasty and included orange juice fresh squeezed from the garden and coffee made... More

We are currently staying here and this is a place that really makes you feel like your home away from home. Had freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh oranges from the back yard, home roasted coffee from Tom and amazing chocolate chip waffles. The room is HUGE and such unique antiques all throughout the house. Location is perfect for walking... More

Our hopes were quickly realized as we were warmly greeted, shown to our lovely looking and spotless room with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast at a beautifully set table was original and tasty. We would go to Jenks House again.

The best part about this place is a spacious room with all kinds of old-fashioned decor where you can relax, read a book, play one of the many board games, or "go modern" and connect to the internet. This was my favorite part of the house. I also liked our bedroom and the private bathroom. The location is central, about... More

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at this B&B several months ago. So much so, that enroute home I enthusiastically wrote a glowing review via iPhone. Alas, technology. As I submitted it, something went wrong and the entire thing disappeared(!) Regretfully, it's taken me awhile to get back to this, but I want to be sure to... More
