Charming...

Magical... Unforgettable...


Specifically chosen for its natural beauty, the location of The Club Continental is the most romantic setting in Northeast Florida for your wedding and reception. Imagine your ceremony taking place under a 300-year-old Live Oak tree draped in Spanish moss on the banks of the serene St. Johns River. Your guests will delight in the cool breeze off the water and the occasional sailboat gently passing by. An outdoor patio, overlooking manicured gardens, the pools and Cabana, and of course the majestic river, is available for drinks and hors d’oeuvres following your ceremony. With its distinctive marble floors, stucco arches and wrought iron, the historic mansion will impress your guests throughout your reception. Nothing makes for a more successful event than working with a professional team. The vendors showcased within this brochure have repeatedly demonstrated their skills and commitment to excellence. We feel confident in recommending them and encourage you to contact them for your individual needs.

Historical...

The Club Continental mansion was built as the winter retirement home of Caleb Johnson, son of the founder of the Palmolive Soap Company. He and his wife, Elinor, commissioned an architectural firm in Milwaukee to design a Mediterranean structure they named Mira Rio. Building began in early 1922 and the family took up residence in May 1923. In order to maintain his family home, Caleb (Jon) Johnson Massee, their grandson, founded the Club Continental in 1966. Nestled on the banks of the St. Johns River, The Club Continental is now a romantic and intimate Resort and Private Club. Over the years, The Club has expanded its facilities to include 7 tennis courts, 3 swimming pools and 22 overnight guest rooms.

Jon and Fredrica Massee

Towering, 300-year old Live Oak trees draped with Spanish moss, flowering hibiscus trees, flower beds and gurgling fountains surround the centerpiece, a grand Mediterranean style mansion with arches, stucco walls, and a red-tiled roof. The existing lawns and formal gardens are carefully and lovingly maintained by the Massee family. Old World Florida still exists at The Club Continental. Natalie and Margaret Johnson
