As a former Innkeeper of three Bed and Breakfasts I am no stranger to the hospitality field. I currently work in that field in a local restaurant. I enjoy entertaining guests and making them feel at home! I have lived in Jacksonville since 1983, migrating from Connecticut to escape the snow and ice. I enjoy living in the San Marco area because it is surrounded by water ( the St. John's River) and close to the interstate and downtown. I have many interests and hobbies that keep me busy and I love to cook, so that may definately be in your favor !
I would love to help you enjoy your stay in Jacksonville, whether it be business or pleasure. Some of the best friends I have made have been former guests from my innkeeping days at The San Marco Point House, Sabal Palm Inn and The Old City House.... so come on .let's make you one !
