We had to make last-minute plans to the Tampa area for a funeral. Rather than stay in a forgettable hotel, I called Behind the Fence and hoped they had availability. Carolyn's hospitality carried through the phone line and I knew we had made a right choice. Arriving at the property we noticed all the fun details that made you feel... More

A group of friends and family members stayed at Behind the Fence B&B, in late January 2014, as it was close to a family event. We stayed for 5 days and I didn't want to leave. The care in recreating a saltbox house, staying true to New England history, was fascinating. The owners, Carolyn & Larry Voss, could not have... More

We booked the Behind the Fence B&B because it was close and looked so interesting, but we'll be back because it more than lived up to our expectations. Gorgeous antiques, charming, relaxed atmosphere, and very reasonable prices combine for lovely, different-than-your-ordinary B&B experience. Larry and Caroyln couldn't be more friendly and knowledgeable. We're already looking forward to our next stay.

What a great find! I found myself with a free night without the kids and was looking for a bed and breakfast in the Tampa area. I stumbled upon "Behind the Fence" and am glad I did. The history buff in me loved looking at all of the antiques and 19th centure replicated architecture. The bed and breakfast goer in... More

We were visiting relatives in Florida and needed to catch an early flight from Tampa home. We wanted to be close enough to the airport to be able to drop off the rental and have time to check in. In searching towns near Tampa we found this B & B in Brandon, about 45 minutes to the airport. The idea... More

I would agree with other reviewers - if you need modern amenities, give this a miss. If you need peace and quiet and a home away from home, you cannot do any better. Larry and Carolyn are simply the best. We have already stayed there twice and if we need to get back to Brandon, we will stay there again.

for those who are into modern accommodation, I would say: give this place a miss. If however, you are looking for something of the beaten path, then this is the place to book. A stay in "Behind the fence" is more than a B&B experience: it is an encounter with a different lifestyle all together. The accommodation is basic but... More

We booked based on rustic style in newer construction. The cabin was hot when we arrived and we were told there is no way tenants can control room/cabin temperatures. The owner said they would set the unit for cool while we were at dinner with relatives. Upon returning later that night there was no improvement and no air movement or... More

When we entered Behind the Fence Bed and Breakfast Inn it was like stepping back in time to the early 1800's in New England. I've been to museums furnished just like this wonderful place and I wasn't allowed to touch anything. Here, I was actually encouraged to touch anything I wanted to! Carolyn, our hostess, was so gracious, answered any... More

We immediately felt transported in time. So relaxing, just what we needed. We have already reserved a return getaway! We plan to bring books, relax, and hike nearby (Alafia River State Park). However, what we look forward to most, is just staying "home" at the inn, soaking up the atmosphere of another time. We stayed in one of the rooms... More
