We were here before a couple of years ago and had such a nice time we decided to stop back on our way through Gainesville. It showed that our first experience was not a fluke. Monta and Peggy have this right. Every detail is perfect, the house is beautiful, the work they've done on it is impressive, Breakfast is imaginative...

We enjoyed ourselves so much last year, we decided to return again this year on our drive to Florida. We had another wonderful experience! Monta & Peggy pay attention to every detail with their guests, from our dietary needs to recommendations for places to dine and attractions to visit. The rooms and the entire grounds are impeccable. They have done...

We loved everything about this place, from easy parking to easy access to our room. The owners are very pleasant and on site. The room was very nice, little gas fireplace, great bed...liked the bath products as well. They had a lovely garden and our breakfast was fresh and delicious. If we are ever in the area again we would...

We travel extensively and choose B & B properties whenever we can. The Laurel Oak Inn is exceptional in every way. The property, the breakfast, the innkeepers, their attention to detail.....everything. There are several B & B properties in the immediate area. All are quite good.....but the LOI is exceptional!!

The house is elegant and cozy, and our room was a perfect arrangement of comfort and beauty! Manta and Peggy are great hosts. Peggy started off our day with a lavish, delicious meal and even prepared fabulous gluten-free items for us! Manta knows the area well and directed us to fantastic restaurants and sight-seeing adventures!

Monta and Peggy were the most accommodating host/hostess that Pat and I have experienced.The amenities were excellent but the personal attention given to us by both Monta and Peggy was so much appreciated. We are planning to revisit them early next year when the circumstances are a little less hectic than when we were there the last time. Pat /...

We stayed a weekend to visit Gainesville and the surrounding springs. Monta and Peggy were very welcoming and had great recommendations for surrounding food and activities. Located within walking distance to downtown Gainesville restaurants and entertainment. The room we stayed in was beautiful and cozy and breakfast is delicious and homemade. Wonderful stay and hope to visit again sometime soon!

We stayed here for the first time in October, and it was absolutely lovely! The owners, the inn, the room, the food, the service - EVERYTHING was fantastic! We usually stay at another inn in High Springs, but that one was unavailable this year. We thought a different B & B would never measure up to those accommodations, but we...

I recently had my first stay at The Laurel Oak in, after multiple visits to Gainesville over the past decade (for a music festival, where the plan was typically "lets find the cheapest motel, and how many people we can cram in it." - this time I wanted something a little nicer/quiet). This was one of the best lodgings I've...

We have stayed at the Laurel Oak Inn about five times now and have enjoyed every stay. Monta and Peggy always make us feel at home and the breakfasts are always unique and delicious. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are the cleanest I have ever seen. The location is an easy walk to downtown Gainesville where there...
