This was our first time here, but we'll be back. It's a great Inn with wonderful Innkeepers that make you feel at home. The Breakfast was outstanding and I loved the little wine and cheese hour as well. The rooms were quaintly decorated and very comfortable. You won't be disappointed staying here.

We stay at this B&B several times a year, and each time is like we are coming home. As soon as you meet Peg and Monta, you'll know why. Great hosts, warm, welcoming. You'll feel like family in no time. The bonus is that food is fantastic. The location is just a couple of blocks from the heart of downtown,...

I was in town this past August for interviews and was given a ground floor room at the Laurel. It was perfect. After a long day's drive to Gainesville I was able to really relax and rest up for the next day. The owner Monta called me as I drove to Florida and made sure I had a good path...

The Laurel Oak Inn is a great B&B with amazing hospitality, and gourmet breakfasts! My husband and I recently stayed at this beautiful B&B since we had tickets to the UF football season opener.

A truly excellent B&B with the perfect location in Gainesville. The hosts could not have been any more accommodating, loaning me his bike and helmet, extending their gym membership to my wife and me as well as accommodating our dietary needs. In addition to the comfortable accommodations, the lively discussions made me feel right at home?

Our stay at the Laurel Oak Inn the weekend of 8/16 and 8/17/13 was simply lovely. The Victorian antiques and architecture, the garden and two fountains, the hummingbird feeder, (with a visit from a ruby throated hummingbird), the food and our hosts were wonderful. Thank you Monta and Peggy for giving us a window on Gainesville and the Victorians.

As we entered through the kitchen door, we knew we were in the right place. We were greeted by our hosts, Peggy and Monta, who provided gracious, professional service throughout our stay. We stayed in the Lavender room and enjoyed the porch, where we drank a glass of wine while we watched the moon and then sipped our coffee in...

Oh My! We have stayed in a lot of different bed and breakfast inns and I can honestly say this one has been the best!! We were just getting away for a break from the farm and found Laurel Oak Inn. From the time we were met at the door, we were shown south Georgia style hospitality at its best!...

We were visiting friends nearby and stayed here for4 nights a while back. I am glad I found it on here because we had really fond memories and would really recommend it to friends. Lovely old setting, great typical American open hearted welcome and food that was well above the usual standard.
