After living in Gainesville for 10 years back in the 1980's, we returned for a short visit and were thrilled to find the Laurel Inn! The Inn has been beautifully restored, making for a delightful stay. Monta and Peggy went out of their way to anticipate and satisfy all of our needs. Our daughter had an early morning interview and... More

We have stayed in B&Bs for years, & this has to be THE friendliest place ever! The beautiful house & room was out-done only by the incredible hospitality & genuine friendship of the owners, Peggy & Monta. Every restaurant Monta recommended was excellent, but never as good as his & Peggy's amazing breakfasts...... I HIGHLY recommend The Laurel Oak Inn... More

Peggy and Monta are excellent hosts!! You do not feel in a hotel, you feel at home. The facilities are in perfect conditions, the garden and the house are very beautiful, the neighborhood is very quiet though close to the downtown. But most important is the relaxing atmosphere you can experience in that place. Monta, thanks for the ride to... More

My girlfriend and I had an absolutely love stay at The Laurel Oak Inn. Every aspect of our trip was incredible thanks to Peggy and Monta; he even drove us to the airport at 6:00 in the morning! I cannot recommend The Laurel Oak Inn highly enough. It is in a league of its own.

My husband and I were in Gainesville celebrating a friend's wedding. We had to make last minute plans because a family member was sick and we could not stay with them. Laurel Oak Inn was one of the few places with a room that weekend on that short of notice. I am soooo happy I booked it! Everything was perfect.... More

Tucked back into a quiet neighborhood just blocks from downtown Gainesville. The property is beautiful inside and out. The rooms have that B&B antique feel, but with modern updates (bathrooms stocked with Aveda products) and super comfortable bedding. Lots of porches and places to relax. Each room has a unique style and feel. Monta and Peggy treat you like family... More

This B&B is one of the best that I have stayed in and I am looking forward to bringing my wife back. Impressive and well restored 1885 house on a street of wonderfully restored homes, within easy walking distance of the downtown restaurants and bars. Amazing gourmet breakfast from a friendly and knowledgeable host. Wine in the afternoons and good... More

As Gainesville residents, my wife and I were looking for a Bed and Breakfast in our town to get away. This meticulously restored Victorian era home near downtown is very close to great dining and entertainment. Peggy and Monta paid attention to every detail and made us feel right at home. Our room was very comfortable and clean, with all... More
