About Epping Forest Yacht & Country Club

As one of Jacksonville's properties on the National Register of Historic Places, Epping Forest Yacht Club has evolved from an historic estate into one of the most exquisite yacht clubs in the South. The original luxurious riverfront Mansion, built in late 1926, was home to industrialist Alfred I. duPont and his wife, Jessie Ball duPont. In 1984, Gate Petroleum Company purchased the property restoring its original splendor. Capable of hosting large corporate events such as Pepsi's Rookie of Year event during Super Bowl XXXIX, this 15,000-square-foot estate property boasts several venues for special events.

In addition to several medium-size dining rooms, the 4,00-square-foot second floor holds as many as 150 between three conjoining rooms. On the St.John's River, the property also features several scenic outdoor spaces. Easily tented, the courtyard adjacent to the marina and boathouse can accomodate 150 guests and the lower gardens can hold 300. We also offer on-site audiovisual support as well as an exclusive in-house executive chef and pastry chef, child-care services, and event coordinators!

Throughout the years, Epping Forest has seen many distinguished guests including the Vanderbilts, Carnegies, Presidents, world leaders and celebrities. The views of the lush formal English gardens, the scenic St. Johns River, award-winning cuisine and service continue to make Epping Forest Yacht Club one of the most sought after locations for private parties, corporate functions and weddings.

    Epping Forest made our wedding day perfect!

    The mansion and location is BEAUTIFUL and the staff was professional and efficient. During the planning, they answered all of our questions whether it was in person or promptly over email. They gave us their recommendations for the set up of the venue then customized it to fit our needs. They made everything easy from decorating the mansion with the items they had and the ones we brought in, picking what to serve, and recommending vendors. The day of, Epping staff kept everything running smoothly and on time at our brunch wedding. Long story short, Epping made everything easy so we could enjoy the day. Several of my guests have commented how professional and friendly they were. Ernestine was the coordinator we worked most closely with. She was wonderful throughout the planning process and was a positive energy and a smiling face on my wedding day. She made us feel comfortable from the start and seemed genuinely excited for us! I highly recommend Epping for your next big event.
