After an extensive search of the Tampa area I happened upon OFH and the rest is just miraculous. Between the hospitable greeting to the friendly farewell we experience the most miraculous level of hospitality we have ever encountered in our travels in the US, Mexico, and Canada. The genuine personal warmth exceeds even the outstanding accommodations. While we imagined a room we found a full suite with living, sleeping, bathing, and cooking available in a spacious two room arrangement. The comfort level exceeded any B & B we have ever stay in. The other amenities including laundry, game room, grounds, and stables added to the enjoyment of our stay. The quiet and picturesque setting only a short drive from the hustle of Tampa added relaxation and pleasure to our stay. Breakfast is an experience of its own. You will never leave breakfast hungry or unsatisfied after the luxury of an abundant and well prepared southern meal. OFH is indeed a haven away from the fast track tourist haunts dotting I-75 but oh so short a trip for such a pleasant time. This experience exceeded our expectations to such a degree that it is impossible to put it all into words other than to say that it was a miracle that we found, it was a miracle that we enjoyed and will always remember, and one that we would love to share with you.
