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...

Had a wonderful stay at the mansion. It was very interesting to be able to visit each of the rooms that were not occupied. It is very beautiful - inside and out. Very friendly staff. 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
