I booked an overnight stay as a birthday present for my son who was turning 14. He is a budding parapsychologist and we enjoy traveling and staying in inns that are reported to be haunted. The inn is beautiful - we loved the extensive wood work and detailed craftmanship. We stayed in the Iris Suite on the third floor and... More

There is such attention to art and architectural detail at Herlong. You never run out of things for your eyes and brain to enjoy, such as the Herlong Family Tree on the second floor wall, or the unusual collections of canes in several places. The second floor veranda is a gem at 4 pm when a daily glass of wine... More

Spent a night here with two other couples on way to Disney. Wonderful staff. Enjoyed a glass of wine on the front porch surrounded by huge moss covered oaks. A real taste of days gone by. Good breakfast. Only negative was no sports channels on tv. That's hard for football fans during bowl season.

We really enjoyed meeting you all and we are so pleased you had a terrific time. We have Dish Tv and apologize that it didn't provide the game you wished to watch but that you were able to find an alternative football game. We hope you come again. More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this amazing B&B. Everyone associated with this B&B are wonderful and truly pleasant. We stayed in the Herlong Suite again, which I think is the best room there. It opens out to the amazing, quiet (And HUGE) second story porch. We spent the evening out there, drinking wine... More

I booked a one-night personal birthday get away and stayed in the Magnolia Room on the 2nd floor. I felt as if I had stepped back in time the moment I entered the Inn. The house was built in 1845, beautiful details and furnished top to bottom in lovely antiques with intriguing photos and memorabilia of a time gone by.... More

My family of 20 just spent the best Thanksgiving ever at the Herlong Mansion. It is an Old South style Bed and Breakfast.The bedrooms retained their Victorian beauty, each one different, spacious, clean, neat and very comfortable as was the bathrooms. There were no complaints, just a minor one which was handled immediately. Each morning we came down to a... More

Stayed in the Carriage House for several days while visiting relatives in the area. A nicely converted comfortable room (though it is due for some minor sprucing up). The main house is lovely, and the owner is friendly and very gracious. Delicious breakfast served everyday in the Main house dining room.

Because my friend could not make it I ended up staying alone in the room I'd booked months in advance. The room was clean and well furnished. Spacious bathroom (but the claw foot tub did not have a plug, so no soaking in a hot bath-it's showers only) You are allowed to help yourself to one glass of wine beginning... More

The Herlong Mansion is a great Bed and Breakfast. The rooms where big and spacious. The staff where very friendly. The Breakfast was delicious. The veranda was a great place to relax and enjoy the small town atmosphere. The town was quaint and friendly. Be sure to stop into the Florida Cafe for a Rebecca sandwich.
