We ended up finding this place while looking to stay closer to Sanford Airport versus staying in Orlando for our last night and having to drive up to the airport in the morning. Booking the room was a charm, with personal emails and phone calls from the owner. We had a quiet arrival and it was in walking distance to... More

The Inn's new owners, Patty and Mike Ribera provided a warm and welcoming environment for my one night stay at the Higgins House. I felt right at home. The Inn is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the restaurants in town. The property is lovely with wonderful details and has a great porch for rocking and resting. I was... More

We have stayed in many nice B&B's, but this one is the very best. The hosts, Patty & Mike are amazing people. Sitting on the porch talking with them was as wonderful as their tip to go to the Blues Bar just up the block (a MUST for music lovers on a Sunday afternoon/evening). We felt right at home and...

We stayed overnight at this wonderful B&B while in Sanford for the short film fest. Mike and Pat are very cordial and accommodating, taking excellent care of us from the moment we arrived. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, but close to downtown, it was perfect. Good night's rest and Pat-catered breakfast. Would definitely do it again.

From the minute we walked through the door, new owners Patty & Mike were extremely gracious hosts! We stayed in the Cedar room on the west side of the house & loved it. The bed was very comfortable & the room was spacious, & the entire house was decorated beautifully. Very short walk to downtown area. We were in town... More

We saw their ad in the Allegent magazine and decided to just try it out after returning from a cruise. What a great find. The B&B is just a short stroll from a charming little town with excellent walks along the lake and fun and entertaining restaurants. We asked for suggestions for lunch and dinner and both places they sent... More

Had a bridal shower here - it was gorgeous! Used the living room for the party and the deck for the drinks. Everyone really loved it. The inn keepers were fantastic hosts and were so nice about everything. Cannot say enough great things - thank you so much!

On every level Higgins house gets five stars from me. I am an artist who travels a lot and this was a nice surprise during a time of stress. Due to a last minute issue with my prearranged artist residence housing, I had to find a place to stay local for one night. Lou answered the phone and was the... More

Sharon & Lou are just outstanding "regular" folks who take you into their house like you're part of their family. Norma and I were extremely relaxed in their B & B because of their generous hospitality and friendliness, which we very much appreciate. Everything that B & B should be, the Higgins House is !!! It is charming, comfortable and... More
