If you are looking for a bed and breakfast, then you can't do better than the Laurel Oak Inn. The old house has been marvelously restored to its original grandeur. The owner/operators, Monta and Peggy Burt, go to great lengths to be the most gracious hosts you could desire. Our room (The Lily) had a comfortable king bed and a... More

We stayed at The Laurel Oak Inn while passing through Gainesville and felt so lucky! The house is beautiful, an easy walk into town, with off-street parking. Our room was beautifully done with a modern bathroom and comfortable bed. But what made our stay most special was the wonderful hosts. Whether it was restaurant suggestions, a glass of wine at...

Wonderful wonderful hosts and food! I truly enjoyed my stay. The breakfasts are out of this world! The coffee is top notch and I'm a bit of a coffee snob. The rooms, grounds and house are gorgeous and tastefully decorated in this beautifully restored antique home. The innkeepers go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.... More

Monta and Peggy are great hosts. They make you feel like you are in part of the family. The Lilac room has a great patio and is roomy. Breakfasts are great plus there is happy hour with wine and beer. Easy to walk to downtown and many restaurants...

You always hear that there is no such thing as perfect. But contrary to that thought, the Laurel Oak Inn in Gainesville, FL, is perfect -- the essence of perfection. My wife and I first stayed at the Laurel Oak Inn in 2007. We have been back every year since. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Gainesville. Innkeepers, Monta and... More

We have stayed at several bed and breakfasts and this was the best by far. It is super super clean and a beautiful home. The owners treat you like family and are extremely organized and gracious. The food was delicious and it is in a great location close to downtown. We will return anytime it is available when visiting Gainesville.... More

As written by every other review, you simply can not go wrong by choosing to stay at The Laurel Oak Inn. You are first welcomed by the smell of something wonderful baking. Then Monte and Peggy wrap you in their cocoon of comfort, care and endless kindness. The house is spit shine spotless. Period pieces not overdone to be stuffy.... More

The Laurel Oak Inn has redefined our expectations of a B&B. Monta and Peggy make you feel like family the moment you walk in, and make you feel as though you are the ONLY guest in their home. Amazing balance of attention to detail while creating a relaxed ambiance.We will definitely be back, and will recommed to everyone we know!... More
