While I would have liked a bigger and more varied breakfast the setting itself is wonderful. This is a big home, well decorated with well maintained grounds. Its in the middle of the small town of Micanopy so its a great basecamp for visits to close by state parks or the Majorie Rawlings home of Cross Creek or strolls around...

I stayed at the Herlong during a recent visit to the area looking at real estate. The Inn and grounds are beautiful and well-kept. My room was clean, comfortable, and very quiet. Breakfast was delicious and hearty and always included fresh fruit. Carolyn, the owner is a lovely woman and I enjoyed chatting with her over coffee. During my stay,...

What a delightful time I had meeting you...we had so much in common. Those tornado warnings can be pretty alarming but you're correct- the Herlong is about the Safest place I know, she is built like a Fortress. I love hearing that you enjoyed your breakfasts and your room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I certainly look forward to your...

The property was enchanting and the rooms were comfortable and clean. It was an unplanned stop which turned into a multi-night stay. Caroline was helpful and inviting especially as my friend was sick and needed medical attention. Route into Gainesville which lead to the Strand Medical Center - prompt and professional service.

It was rainy; the NFL playoffs were on tv; and my wife planned a short getaway to Micanopy. After a two hour drive, we arrived at this stately old house with huge Corinthian columns across the front porch. The arts and craft wood inside was warm and inviting. We were greeted at the covered side door by a friendly lady...

My sister and I had an unplanned, last minute trip to Micanopy to help a family member. Carolyn at the Herlong got us set up with a wonderful room in no time. The place is magnificent, breakfast is delicious, and we were very well-taken care of. We've stayed here numerous times and plan to return again and again.

I was so excited to stay at the Herlong Mansion with my mother and sisters earlier this month ~ but I was disappointed. The breakfasts (half of the B & B experience) we were served were just not good at all. I'm not a picky person ... but I couldn't eat the French toast because it was burned, dry &...

I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed my hospitality but am very perplexed by your other statements. I have actually never been to a Flea Market and all our antiques are of fine quality and were most definitely not purchased at an 80's flea market. To my knowledge we have never burned our food and then served it - the...

This property is the only option in the small town of Micanopy. It is for sale and it is obvious that the current owners are scrimping somewhat. It would also appear to not be run by business oriented owners. The property itself while somewhat tired and in need of sprucing up is a fine example of an old mansion. Wallpaper...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We enjoyed hosting you for our Annual Fall Festival weekend. Yes, the Herlong is for sale - however, it is being run with the same care and amenities as always. I have lovingly owned the Inn for 11 years and am hoping to give someone else the honor of continuing...

This historic landmark is full of charm and ambiance. The century plus house is well maintained with tasteful period furnishings without being drab.
