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.
