The spotless pioneer period antiques and the wealth of well-chosen amenities (fireplaces, saunas. whirlpool tubs, double steam showers) at this 1861-vintage inn evoke what the Wild West might have been had Martha Stewart been in charge. In addition to the main building, the inn includes four larger and more luxurious cottages. One of the eight rooms in the main inn is named in honor of ubiquitous Jacksonville founding father Peter Britt, while another, the Blanchet Room,
honors one of the area's earliest Catholic priests. Complimentary full breakfast is served in the elegant restaurant, which also serves lunch and dinner both to guests and nonguests. The Jacksonville Mercantile gourmet store and wine shop are on the ground floor.
