The previous owners declared bankruptcy and this has been a private residence since June 1, 2013. No longer available as a bed and breakfast. Quite a shame since it was a beautiful structure and once had a tasty tea room.

We were visiting the parks in Orlando and decided to drive over to Bartow and spend a night in the Stanford. The reason for this is because the place was used for the filming of 'My Girl'. Many parts of the house including the hallway and staircase were instantly recognisable from the film. We stayed in the Stanford room which... More

We are parents of 2 small kids and unexpectedly had a night to ourselves. We booked a stay here with just an hour's notice to the inn-keepers and they easily accommodated us. Once we arrived at the Inn, we got a discount (for some reason) which was a pleasant surprise. The home is very well kept and was beautifully decorated... More

I wouldn't call Bartow a destination city but the Stanford Inn is an elegant 1920's mansion that is clean and well appointed with period antiques. The owners also own or run two small restaurants in Bartow and offer you complimentary breakfast at the Stanford on Main. We biked the Fraser Farm bike trail and visited Bok Tower Gardens, a must...

My husband and I decided to use the voucher to celebrate his birthday, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our choice. The owners and staff were hospitable, accommodating, and went out of their way to make our stay extra special. Everyone we ran into was friendly and provided wonderful suggestions and tips about the home and area. The house... More

We stayed at this B&B last week, for five nights. We had a uniformly positive experience. It was recommended to us by someone in the area who had not stayed there, only seen the outside. As a result, I read the reviews on this site before staying. In review, I'll refer to some of those reviews. First, some people said... More

Sometimes, when life gets hectic, you just need to find a place that makes you feel pampered and relaxed. The Stanford Inn meets these needs. We arrived at Stanford Inn after a harrowing flight, arriving 2-3 hours late and were welcomed and put at ease right away. Our room was beautiful and clean, lunch was fantastic, and the wine very...

Presentation of room was exceptional. Has a tv/DVD player in the room, which a lot of b&b's do not offer, and a good selection of DVD's available in the sitting room. Watched "My Girl", which was filmed there. We were not aware of that at the time of our booking. As others have said, the owners and staff go out... More

Let's start with the good stuff: The area and the inn itself were very quiet at night. The bed was extremely comfortable. Service excellent, expecially the young girls who work here. Room was very clean and spacious; TV reception good. Cost was reasonable. Parking convenient; area is safe. Snacks, water, and soft drinks provided at no charge. Now the NOT... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted as though we were family. The help was vsibly pleased to assist in easing the registration process and ensuring a pleasant introduction to the exqiusitely appointed early 20th century, circa1906, home. The rooms and Inn were delightfully arranged to capture the holiday spirit. The ambiance was replete wtih a 1906 upper scale home .Fireplaces and... More
