Everybody came through in a pinch. There were no rooms available during hurricane Irma for miles around, yet they bent over backwards and found us space. Heather was all smiles and made sure we had all the comforts of home. I can't get over how...More

Was in town for a week long MBTI class-the Piccadilly Room has a wonderful desk/work space; the parlors and outside areas were great contemplation and collaboration spaces.

Stayed here for two nights with my husband and son. It's like staying with a friend who has lovely accommodations, provides a nice breakfast, wine in the evening and leaves you alone. The breakfast is lovely - pastries, toast, pancakes, coffee, omelettes, bacon, fruit, preserves,...More

Thank you for the kind words, Katy. It was a pleasure having you and your family on our property and we hope to see you the next time you are in Gainesville!

We stay over night at Sweetwater Inn in one of the beautiful houses. All the bedrooms are different. Some with balconies. The breakfast is included. It is very well located by the University, but look like you are in the past in the country.

I also stayed in a cottage which had a full kitchen, but just like another reviewer said, it's like staying with family. They will no doubt figure out a way to accommodate you.
