Located a block off away from downtown. Is well furnished and wonderfully kept. Quite and private, yet within walking distance of downtown Jacksonville, with plenty of shops and restaurants to wonder thru. Definitely plan on going back.

A perfect place to stay in Jacksonville! It is beautifully and tastefully decorated with more than enough room for a couple to stay, along with all of the amenities you would like – refrigerator, coffee machine etc. perfect location as well – off the main street but only two blocks away to everything. The hosts are attentive but allow your... More

Elan was recommended by a friend who lives in the area. We were thrilled from the minute we arrived. Exceeded every expectation-beautiful decor, spotless, every amenity a person could desire, great bedding, very spacious, and a perfect location. The photos do not do it justice. The hosts are friendly, helpful and welcoming. We visited Carmel, Napa and San Francisco in... More

We have visited USA many times and to celebrate our Golden Wedding we decided on one last 'road trip' wending our way from Seattle through Oregon, Napa Valley and finishing in San Francisco.

In town for the wedding of close friends who know my taste and recommended Elan. It's a small property (3 suites), but it has everything you could ever hope for and it's walking distance to all the high points in J-ville.

Wanted to stay in Jacksonville for a concert at the Brit and couldn't have picked a better place to stay! Walked just 2 blocks to the concert with a Deer and her Fond!

Thanks for choosing Elan! The deer are certainly Jacksonville nomads. They roam from yard to yard or accompany guests to the nearby Britt music venue, as they did with you.

My only regret was only staying one evening! The suite was modern immaculate warm and inviting. Jacksonville couldn't be more charming. Our host made dinner reservations at the restaurant Gogi's which was also sensational. I can't wait to visit again and stay at Elan!!!

Artistically appointed with original paintings from Cherie's son, Gabriel, Elan Guest Suites is a masterpiece. The decor could be a photo shoot for Architecture Digest. While Jacksonville has a plethora of turn of the century farmhouse B&B, there are no contemporary boutique hotels like Elan. The 3 rooms all have a balcony, full kitchen, comfy bed, and full bath.

Greetings from Elan! Thank you for your artistic description of the Guest Suites. We pay the deer big 'bucks' (no pun intended :-) to strut their stuff for guests lounging on the balconies. Elan is perfect for celebrations, staycations, business or retreats. We look forward to your next visit - whatever the reason. See you soon! More
