 Millington, Tenn. – Relaxation, recreation and revitalization are three of the “R’s” that pertain to Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s (MWR) Heritage Cottages. Another “R” is reservations, as in make yours now!
 
These 16 cottages, located on Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville’s golf course, are the newest addition to the family of cottages available at Navy installations throughout the United States.

“The cottages provide a low cost vacation option. They allow a great opportunity to spend quality time with the family and use the reasonably priced MWR activities on base,” said Capt. Charlie King, executive officer, NAS Jacksonville. “I would recommend it as a stopping point for those returning from the highly stimulating Orlando parks as a means to decompress, relax and have a good night’s sleep before getting back on the highway to return home.”
 
Recreation
 
NAS Jacksonville is a popular duty station with a vast amount of tourist destinations in the surrounding area, including golf resorts, historic cities, family attractions, and a large number of beaches. Visitors may also take advantage of the wonderful MWR facilities available on base. The Heritage Cottages were built to offset the higher prices of local hotels and resorts, while offering amenities and access not normally found in Navy visitor’s quarters, lodges and inns.
 
Revitalization
 
“I was totally impressed with the cottages. Even though I was on temporary additional duty (TAD), I couldn't wait to get back to my cottage in the evenings to sit out on the screened porch overlooking the golf course and enjoy the sounds of nature,” said Tammy Olenski, MWR Program Analyst, Commander, U. S. Atlantic Fleet. “I have raved about the cabins to my fellow co-workers who often travel to NAS Jacksonville for TAD. I plan to use the cottages for all my future visits to the Jacksonville area,” she concluded.
 
Opened in February 2003, 16 fully furnished and equipped two-bedroom cottages are available; two are Americans with Disabilities Act compliant. Cooks will enjoy the kitchen amenities that include dishes, utensils, microwave, stove, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, pots and pans. Couch potatoes will appreciate the two 27-inch color televisions and the DVD/VCR.
 
Year-round rates for the cottages are $60.00 per night. Each two-bedroom cottage can sleep up to six adults and offers 800 square feet of living space with a 150 square foot screened patio.
 
A clothes washer and dryer are located in each cottage. Pets and smoking are not allowed in the cottages.
 
For more information about the cottages or to make reservations, call (904) 542-3138 or (904) 542-3139.
 
Eligible patrons may make reservations one year in advance. The patron list includes active duty and family; retired and family; reservist and family; Department of Defense personnel and family; and NAS Jacksonville government contractors. Since the cottages are located on base, the ability to gain base access is required.
 
NAS Jacksonville’s MWR department also has an RV Park with 28 sites overlooking St. John’s River. New shower and restroom facilities have been recently added to the park. Reservations are accepted 60 days in advance via the Auto Hobby Shop on base. Auto Hobby can be reached by calling (904) 542-3227.
