About the Inn and Gardens

Beautiful Historic Architecture and Park-like Lawn and Gardens

Full of charm and character, Blessings on State Bed & Breakfast was built in the late 1880’s and is nestled among other homes in the heart of Jacksonville’s historic district. With architectural details reminiscent of days gone by, Blessings on State Bed & Breakfast is easily recognizable with its grand front wraparound porch, perfect for rest and relaxation. Lush lawns and gardens surround the bed and breakfast and include park benches and swings. The backyard gazebo is a great place for guests to enjoy breakfast.

Double doors welcome guests to Blessings on State Bed & Breakfast where they are invited to enjoy the front parlor with its baby grand player piano and have breakfast in the formal dining room. A carved Victorian staircase leads to the luxurious second-floor guest suites in this historic property graced with modern amenities.

Interior architectural details include stunning woodwork, beautiful dark quarter sawn oak floors, carved wood fireplace mantels, and chandeliers in every suite. Close your eyes and feel transported to another era, where gracious living was the standard.

“If the kitchen is the heart of the home, the porch is its soul” (unknown). Soothe your soul with some good old-fashioned porch sitting at Blessings on State Bed & Breakfast. Relax on a garden bench or swing. Dine in the formal dining room or in the beautifully landscaped backyard gazebo. We’ve planned our landscaping and gardens for all seasons. It’s been said that our gardens have “good bones.” We begin with late winter blooms and continue through the fall, with a structural foundation and continues the show, even when covered with snow.
