Tree Inn B&B in Jacksonville Florida
Fig Tree Inn B&B Jacksonville Florida Bed and Breakfast Beach House Lodgings Accommodations
Hosts: Dawn & Kevin Eggleston
Address: 185 4th Avenue South, Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250 USA
Activities/Attractions: Jacksonville Beach is located east of Jacksonville, Florida, an island in NE Florida. Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intra-Coastal Waterway, you'll find miles of un-crowded white sandy beaches. Jacksonville Beach is a solid business, resort and residential community of over 21,000 offering full services: electric, water, fire, police, streets, and recreation facilities.
Jacksonville Beach offers some of the best sport fishing, boating and water sport opportunities in the country. Play in the ocean, walk or collect seashells along the beach, or stroll along the Sea Walk and watch for porpoise year-round or the northern right-whales that winter off our coast.
"Wonderful, our first experience with a bed and breakfast we were very pleased. Will try and stay at B&B's rather than motels in the future."
"We were lucky enough to have my son reserve the whole house for our family, we came from Hawaii, Alabama, California and Florida. We all found the Fig Tree Inn charming and had a wonderful time! The rooms are comfortable and delightfully decorated, everything that you could possibly need is provided, and although antiques are featured throughout the house you'll be happy to know that the appliances are up-to-date. Only a short walk to the ocean and to antique and gift stores - what more could anyone ask for!!"
"Have stayed in B&B's before and this one rates at the top. Gracious hosts; quiet environment; very close to beach; give them a serious look."

"If you really enjoy Southern hospitality, you'll enjoy being at the Fig Tree Inn. Kevin and Dawn, the owners of Fig Tree Inn are wonderful hosts. Although you will never lack for anything at this graceful home a block from the beach, Kevin and Dawn are gracious enough to be there for conversation when you are in the mood but are just as capable of "leaving you be" on the front porch to read, talk or daydream. As I told Dawn, the photos on the Internet do not do this wonderful place justice. We stayed in the Bird Room and when it says "view of the ocean," you don't have to crane your neck to find the sea! This place was on the verge of extinction but their loving care has brought it back. If you are looking for a room with a view, this is it."
