Élan Guest Suites and Gallery was created by Cherie Reneau and Duane Sturm in 2006. Built in the Italianate design of historic Jacksonville’s 1860’s archectecture, the name ‘Élan’ was inspired by definition - flair, elegance and grace.

Gabriel Mark Lipper’s paintings enhance the second story guest suites and first floor gallery. Always open to guests, anyone can view the gallery paintings by appointment, by chance, or a spontaneous phone call. The sophisticated, modular space is also available for special events which benefit from Cherie’s creative planning and the fine art on display.
