My husband & I stayed at The Laurel Oak Inn for 2 nights in May. Monta & Peggy couldn't have been more gracious, the B&B just beautiful, the attention to detail in the rooms made the stay very comfortable, & the yummy breakfasts in the morning fueled our day! They provided great recommendations for lunches & dinners as well as... More

Monta and Peggy run a beautifully remodeled Victorian with 5 guest suites that are true to the original time period of the home with timeless antiques yet modern amenities. Multiple course breakfast served including fruit, juice, coffee, main course and break/muffin, etc; often times even using items from their own organic garden. Beds are extremely comfortable and at least our... More

My wife and I have been frequent guests at the Laurel Oak Inn for about 10 years. We are B&B people, but no matter where we go or how beautiful the accommodations, we are always comparing it to the Laurel Oak. Monta and Petty's place is our favorite inn ANYWHERE.

We stayed a night in the Library and were more than comfortable. Despite being on the first floor, we never heard anyone else in the house. The linens and robes were very nice, and every detail was well appointed. Rising early for breakfast, we were greeted by Monta, a friendly host with exceptional cooking skills. As our journey north was... More

Monta & Peggy are gracious innkeepers! The breakfast was delicious, the conversation even better. Clean, comfortable room on the first floor. The ride to downtown was greatly appreciated! (It would have been a beautiful walk, but the rain compelled us to take Peggy up on her offer.)

While exploring the Gulf Coast for potential retirement places, I decided to stay at B&B's rather than chain hotels along I75. Laurel Oak Inn was a fantastic choice! The extremely comfortable bed and luxurious linens in the Lilac room were probably the best I ever experienced (and I've traveled a lot!). Waking up under centuries-old live oak trees with the...

As always, our stay at the Laurel Oak Inn was exceptional. Peggy and Monta really do everything to make your stay relaxing, enjoyable, and memorable. You can count on them for advice on the best things to do in town, for personal attentive hospitality, and for a genuine "hello" when you walk in the door (and even a glass of... More

The Inn Keepers Monta and Peggy were friendly, attentive and extraordinarily helpful. The breakfasts were superb, and they were most patient with my food restrictions. The house and grounds were beautiful and immaculate, like right out of a magazine cover. The view outside our room was spectacular, especially in the morning when the sun was shining thru a majestic tree... More

We have just arrived home after two nights at this beautiful B&B. I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. We made our trip to Gainesville for my mother’s surgery. Monta made accommodations for us to check in a little late as needed for our travel. We came and went at odd hours but were able to do this without... More

My wife and I loved everything about the The Laurel Oak Inn. Our room was large,comfortable yet with a cozy feel. Loved the Tempurpedic Bed! Monte and Peggy, the Inn Keepers, were always available to answer questions and showed genuine concern about out trip. Delicious Food began each day, and the chocolate cookies at night were wonderful.
