Stayed January 2007. What a special place. It's old, but very beautiful with great quarter sawed oak all over the place! It looks like a southern mansion you'd see in a movie about the old south. It's actually been in a few movies. Lots of goodies, coffee, tea,wine & soda to partake in when you're lounging around the house. No TV in room, which I thought Hubby might not like but he availed himself to the TV in one of the pretty sitting rooms and was very satisfied. Was not too crowded on the Friday night we were there but had the place to ourselves almost on the weeknite. Breakfast was fancy & plentiful,but my egg dish was cold. Other than that, the food was good. Stayed in the Brothers Room thinking we'd use the little sitting area right outside the room on the back porch but it was too cold out. Plus, it was very cold in our room even with the heat on. But that was cured by blankets. The bathroom was cute; had to step up into the claw foot bathtub to take a shower, but the water pressure was fine and water stayed warm, although it takes a while for the hot water to come out since the house is huge and it's gotta travel a ways to get up to the second floor. Is within walking distance to the shops in Micanopy. Staff was nice although I never figured out who was the owner. What a magical place -everyone should try it out. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
