Not only the Victorian house itself, but Patty and Mike make the whole experience a "we'll be back" theme. Highly advise staying here after the Orlando/ Disney craziness. You won't find any better. And to top it off, the city of Sanford has a lot to offer for some "down time". Restaurants and great antique stores!

With 27 years experience in the Travel business and Customer Service management I pay close attention to the details. Higgins House is the best B&B I've ever stayed in! Patty's warm welcome made me feel instantly at home. The gourmet breakfast was an incredible treat, especially the home made Quiche Lorraine, home made scones, a choice of 2 home made... More

My husband and I chose this bed and breakfast to do something for a first for both of us. Neither of us have stayed at a bed and breakfast before. The owners were very kind and immediately made us feel like we were family visiting their home! They sat in the living room and shared stories with us while we... More

Mike and Patty were just so welcoming and their home is lovely. Make the time to relax and enjoy a sip of rum with Mike. Go for a stroll in the neighborhood and along the lake. We stayed in the wicker room. The bed was very comfy. The garden is just gorgeous. You will definitely want to sip your coffee... More

This is the best bed and breakfast I've ever stayed at. Quiet rooms, pleasant surroundings, and a very accommodating couple who own the place makes for a wonderful time. The perfect getaway for a romantic weekend. I highly recommend staying here!

beautiful quaint place right across the street from a beautiful park not far at all from downtown Sanford. Lots to go see and do in Sanford. Lots of nice restaurants, local micro breweries to check out. You really need to check it all out

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
