The spotless period antiques and the host of well-chosen amenities 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 with fireplaces and saunas. 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. All have meticulous pioneer-period furnishings. Some rooms and cottages have whirlpool tubs and double steam showers. 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.
