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

How kind of you to take the time to write such a lovely review and I'm so pleased you enjoyed all that the Herlong had to offer. I will let Ruby and Jim know that you loved her Fabulous Breakfasts and his attentive service. I agree with you that the size of prepackaged Hotel soap is rather small but we... More

We have stayed at the Herlong many times over the years. We found it soon after we married and came up here every chance we had. We have come back almost every anniversary and we just celebrated our 22nd here at Herlong. We have spent more than a few late nights eating take-out in the kitchen. Yes, the Herlong has... More

To start off this weekend took a lot of time, planning and decorating and everything turned out perfect.

My husband and I stayed at the Herlong for 2 nights. We wanted some extra privacy so we selected the Pump House out back of the mansion. We loved it! Very quiet and relaxing! We were able to have full use of the mansion as well and enjoyed the living room and 2nd floor balcony. Breakfast was great! The upside... More

My husband and I were treated by a friend to a one night stay in the Herlong Mansion, we occupied the main suite which opened on to the verandah. We arrived around 4pm and was greeted by a receptionist who told us the property was unmanned after 5pm. The owners lived elsewhere. This is a large house that has three... More

How lovely of your friend to treat you to a night at The Herlong Mansion Inn. I am sorry that you were not made aware that we are an Inn/hotel and not your typical BandB where someone actually lives on site (although we all live within a few blocks and are available at all times).

My wife and I decided to try the mansion as our first time staying in a B&B, and it was fantastic! The grounds were well-manicured, the building in fantastic shape for the age, and the staff were wonderful. Carolyn treated everyone as if they were old friends, is well-versed in the history of the property and the local area, and... More
