My husband and I recently spent a night at Herlong Mansion in Micanopy, Florida. Although, the owner was pleasant, we found our stay disappointing. The entire house had a musty smell and lacked the little extras one expects with a quality B & B. The biggest disappointment was the food. The afternoon cookies were stale grocery store sprinkle sugar cookies... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review- We are, however, a bit surprised as you both appeared to have enjoyed our Homemade Breakfast Quiche, creamy grits and sausages as your plates were empty when you finished your breakfast. We also Do Not buy store bought cookies, we bake them here ourselves but we are pleased you thought... More

We too were in the Pump house which smelled of mildew and gave the appearance of neglect rather than charm--water stains on the ceiling, ancient TV that didn't work, cobbled together furnishings, and why did the drawers look like room had just been ransacked? Don't believe the pictures. The grounds were unkempt including limbs and debris thrown on bushes outside... More

This guest made a reservation for our Pump House and asked for a Late Check-In (as this is an Inn with no one in residence the keys are left for after hours check-ins- all this was explained to her and she agreed that this was perfect for her). Later that evening I received a phone call at my home from... More

Stayed in a room outside the main house which had a very overwhelming musty smell and felt extremely damp. It had been raining quite a bit but perhaps during such times this room should not be used. We had a couple of uninvited "guests" (large roaches) in the room as well which could also be from the rain. Breakfast was... More

We are disappointed you didn't fully enjoy what the Herlong has to offer. The Cottage is located under a huge magnolia where after the recent severe storms the ground and leaves remain damp and cast off that wet smell you experienced. We do have an exterminator that services our property but occasionally a palmetto bug will come inside, especially after... More

I've always wanted to find a beautiful, turn-of-the century house to stay in that hadn't been so modernized that all the historic elements were reduced to hiding in the background. I finally found what I was looking for in the Herlong Mansion: a wonderful structure, true to its time period but very comfortable and elegant. Located in little Micanopy, Florida,... More

We couldn't be happier that that town suggested the Herlong to you and that you came to us after your unattractive experience at the "Bates Hotel" as you call it. Micanopy is a gentle, lovely place to visit but where you spend the night can sometimes make or break your experience. We really enjoyed meeting you two and love that... More

My granddaughter and I just spent two unforgettable nights in Micanopy at the Herlong Mansion over the Fourth of July weekend. Our room, The Azalea, was spacious, extremely clean and comfortable and we had a great working Jacuzzi in the large bathroom. ( The bathroom even included a magnified make-up mirror for me!) The staff keeps hot coffee and hot... More

The Herlong Mansion in MIcanopy has been a destination spot for years because of the history and southern charm. There is not a lot in "downtown" Micanopy but several antique and collectible shops, an ice cream and sandwich café which roll up at 5pm, and a few small art galleries, yet people come to stroll this main street under the...

We are so pleased you found the Herlong Beautiful and that you enjoyed our unobtrusiveness so you could enjoy your Lazy Hideaway in peace. All the Ceiling Fixtures are Original to the 1910 structure and a few of the bathrooms have old fashioned fixtures as well. We do have orchids in the front rooms which are blooming at this time...
