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...

Had a very warm welcome. The little touches of wine & cookies and the wonderful breakfast were great. Are definitely planning another visit. Very quiet... More

Our interest is historic mansion tours, and we have seen many. Herlong rates as one of the best we have ever seen, and for a nominal fee, the owner will tell you the history of the place and will let you walk through it, including touring any vacant rooms. The highlight for us was the interior design of the rooms,... More

My husband and I had a fabulous night at the Herlong Mansion. The mansion and grounds are gorgeous. Our stay was just way too short to enjoy all this little town has to offer. We plan on returning soon and will definitely stay at the Herlong!

Wonderfully relaxing! Staying in this town was like taking a step back in time and certainly getting off the "hamster wheel" of life. The Inn was lovely, quiet, clean, comfortable and welcoming. The breakfast was filling, the wine and cookies in late afternoon were wonderful and the coffee was delicious, too. We enjoyed the second floor porch after dark and... More

This is a beautiful house with a lot of history in a quaint, interesting little town- the trees all dripping with spanish moss creates an-other-worly feeling. Definitely one of the high points of staying is the very courteous, accomodating nature of the woman owner. The breakfast was a little disappointing- pretty standard scrambled eggs, nothing special.

Thank you for the lovely compliment- I'm so pleased to hear you enjoyed staying at The Herlong and visiting Micanopy. I am disappointed that our breakfast didn't appeal to you, perhaps on your return visit our chef will prepare something more to your liking. It was a pleasure having you and thank you again for your kind words. More

Herlong Mansion is a stately bed and breakfast in a quaint community. The mansion, the town, and the surrounding area are steeped in history. My stay was to connect with family and revisit Micanopy, Cross Creek, and the outlying area. If you love antiques you won't be disappointed. Micanopy, the Antique Emporium, and Smiley's are all nearby and full of... More

After a great recommendation, we spent two nights at this beautiful mansion. We were made to feel welcome right away as we received a tour and checked in. The rooms were beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. The location is lovely, nestled on a beautifully-treed lot, and within walking distance of quaint cafes and fabulous antique shops. The breakfasts were fabulous,... More
