Even on a rainy day, it was still a beautiful little stop. The library and Victorian homes were lovely. Stop by if you are interested in seeing what some parts of Florida looked like many years ago. There aren't many places to eat, but it's a nice walk or drive around the lake.

This was a fine boutique hotel/ B&B but has closed. The hotel and its adjoining restaurant are vacant and striped of all furnishings. We had hoped it would reopen under new ownership but since it is striped to the bare walls that does not look likely.

Rooms very well done, some Retro but all clean, quaint and well done. Staff great, food/bar wonderful. Free wifi. Hotel pretty much in the heart of things. Enjoy your stay in a very old hotel that does Not smell like mildew.

Received a very unprofessional letter today canceling a confirmed reservation at this hotel. Rather sad that the sale of this hotel and transition is going extremely poorly. They obviously are in serious trouble and poorly planned this transition. Questions should be asked to Florida state hotel regulators. Are they a viable hotel? Is canceling confirmed reservations a sound strategy? Is... More

For less than the cost of a decent room elsewhere, my wife and I spent two nights in this historic hotel where we received personalized service and had a tasty breakfast served each morning. We enjoyed a bottle of wine one night in the cozy lobby area and chatted with another couple who were doing the same. We also enjoyed... More

We stopped here for the night on our way to Seaside. This hotel is a gem! The owners welcome you with true Southern Hospitality. The room was comfortable and breakfast was excellent! I'm only sad that we have just found this hotel. Hopefully, the new owners will take some hospitality lessons from Tom & Pam before they retire.

such a sweet bed and breakfast. I stay here two nights a week. The breakfast is awesome, the only problem is breakfast doesn't start until 7:00 but they are each a culinary experience. The hotel has history and a certain relaxed atmosphere to it that can't be duplicated. It's being auctioned off at the end of August and I just... More

My wife surprised me when I walked in the door on Friday afternoon. She said, "Here's our bags, let's get going." The trip led us to the Hotel Defuniak in Defuniak Springs, FL. The first impression as I walked thru the front doors was, "I've just stepped back in time." The music playing was one by Frank Sinatra. The antique... More

If you find yourself in need of a Tesla charge or perhaps a wonderful night's sleep, you MUST stop in the the most charming B&B, tucked away between Tallahassee and Pensacola. My husband and I had NO idea where we were. We walked a bit down the main street and found this amazing, historic "beacon. Tom and Pam, the Propietors... More
