“Instead of "busy" Gainesville”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

we've stayed here a number of times over the years. usually it's in conjunction with a Gator football game so the rates are higher than usual. it's more like an Inn than a B&B. it's a lovely setting about 10 miles south of gainesville. the rooms are very comfortable especially if you can afford the larger ones. you can shop for antiques or collectibles on the very short main street in Micanopy. there not much choice (if any) for dinner in "town." the breakfast is pretty good if you're a breakfast person; i'm not. at least there is no "ghost story" at breakfast anymore. we've always had a good time here.

Room Tip: the more you pay, the better the room. check out the pictures carefully. a porch room can be good...

April 2012 - Our first stay at the incredible Herlong Mansion for a short two-night stay will not be our last...this place was INCREDIBLE! The mansion, itself, is a fabulous step back in time - both in architectural design and ambiance - yet very comfortably appointed with modern features (like the jacuzzi in our quarters). For the complete romantic getaway effect, we chose to stay in the Pump House cottage...go ahead and treat yourself to something real special. The town, Micanopy, itself is unique in historical character and conveniently located near Gainesville, Paynes Prairie, the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings homesite, The Yearling restaurant, and more. Special kudos & thanks to Herlong's co-owner Carolyn and staff member Rachel for wonderful hospitality and outstanding efficiency making for a completely hassle-free visit. This is the kind of place where fond memories for life are made. Our stay was too short...we will be back! Lou & Linda

The best place I have ever stayed at! It is like home. I can't tell everyone how nice and cozy this place is you have to just go and check it out for yourself. It is so relaxing and the true old florida. The rooms are clean and give you a feeling of living back in the 1800's I LOVE IT! I will always stay there while I go shopping in the great antique shops within walking distance from the mansion. The porch swings are very nice too. If you don't love this place then you must be from mars. Great, Great, Great, place! 100%

Having stayed at the Herlong twice now has been nothing short of a great experience. This particular stay was to introduce my girlfriends parents to the Herlong, and the surrounding area. Micanopy and Cross Creek are town's in Florida where time has slowed and you feel like you have gone back to a previous era. The Herlong is the perfect fit for that type of trip as the rooms are beautifully accented to a theme that reflects a uniqueness to each room, and to a time gone past. We've stayed in 4 different rooms now (5 if you count seeing the room our folks stayed in) and have thoroughly enjoyed them, they are very comfortable from the beds, to the furniture to the bathtubs and bathrooms. The first and second floor balconies / patios are equally comfortable and they afford an awesome view of 'Main Street' Micanopy. The staff and folks running the Mansion are wonderfully accommodating and motivated to provide customer service in an 'old school' fashion, always looking to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. We will be going back to enjoy their rooms and service again...and again.

Room Tip: Go to the website and narrow your choice to a few rooms you'd like to stay in and then find out...

My fiancé and I were looking for a romantic and relaxing mini-vacation, and spontaneously decided to visit Herlong Mansion. From the moment we booked, the staff here was nothing but attentive and accommodating, getting us in on short notice, and even allowing us to bring our dog. We stayed in the Carriage House,which was lovely and very clean. The upper porch swings in the mansion itself were perfect to enjoy a glass of wine and relax. the owners instantly made us feel at home.Everyone both at the mansion itself, and in the town, was just so pleasant and welcoming. The shop Delectable Collectables is a must see! The shop owner there is very knowledgeable and helped us pick out gifts for our family with thoughtfulness and care. Our one regret was not staying longer, so we are booked to go back again in October!

Room Tip: Carriage House is Pet Friendly!
