The Historic Bed and Breakfast Inn of Crescent City, FL

Few homes in the United States have the stature to be known by their name, not address. The Sprague House Bed and Breakfast Inn of Crescent City, Florida is a magnificent steamboat gothic Bed & Breakfast Inn built in 1892.

Sprague House; a Bed and Breakfast located in the quaint small town of Crescent City, Florida, the land time has forgotten and where memories are made. Secluded in the southern end of Putnam County and boarded by 2 lakes, Lake Crescent and Lake Stella.  The Sprague House has served as a lodging establishment since 1902 when the wife of Dr. Guilford Sprague a physician and the town’s first mayor purchased the home for his wife Catherine. History tells us the home was opened as a rooming house to the sea captains and sailors from the steam ships. Guests have been known to include Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Booker T. Washington and William Jennings Bryan.
 
The Sprague House is located 80 miles south of Jacksonville, 70 miles north east of Orlando and only 50 miles north of Daytona Beach. Providing an easy trip to escape from the busy city life back to a town where life is much more simple.
 
As you enter the Inn you have an almost perceptible feeling of the people and times that have gone by.

The beautiful two-story Victorian house (circa 1892) built for James Morrow, a wealthy citrus baron, has been tastefully renovated to capture the spirit of an earlier time and is one of the most luxurious Bed & Breakfast homes in the South.

A most unique feature of the Bed & Breakfast is that it is furnished with fine antiques and beaming with the glow of stained glass windows giving you the feel of stepping back into time. Whether sitting on the veranda in the summer with tea or in front of one of the two fireplaces in winter for coffee you can place yourself back in time when life was simple.

Guestrooms, which are located on the second floor, all  have their own private bath, and have been exquisitely decorated with period antiques, precious heirlooms and stained glass windows. Our rooms offer luxurious queen-sized bed, DVD-T.V. combos. Sorry no telephones in the rooms to provide you with some much needed rest and relaxation. Bring your favorite book, or browse through the selection of dvd's in the butlerís pantry. All guest rooms have their own private bath.

Innkeepers know what urban professionals look for and want in a retreat and they have created it in their B&B. They have cultivated high standards and Sprague House is the realization of them. Every guest benefits from this vision and is welcomed.

Enjoy strolls down the beautiful tree lined streets in this Historical district of town. We have bicycles on site if you would prefer to cruise around town in old style and capture the early architecture of some of the older buildings. Donít forget the fishing pole so you can enjoy beautiful Lake Crescent. The public boat ramp and fishing dock are just 300 feet away.

In the evenings relax in “Sprague’s Hall” our game room with a complimentary cold beer or glass of wine and play a game darts or any of the assorted table or card games that are provided. If you prefer to take it easy, find a niche and enjoy a good book away from everyone, but within reach if you care to join in.
