“Blessings on State was a wonderful experience! This Bed and Breakfast was beautiful and the food was delicious, but what I loved most was how welcome I felt. Gwenn and Glenn are such gracious hosts and really went out of their way at every opportunity to make sure that I was comfortable and happy. I was traveling alone and they made sure I didn’t feel that way for one second. I will definitely stay here and only here for any of my future travels to the Jacksonville area.”  – from Yelp
