My husband and I have been visiting the Herlong for many years . We remember it's various stages of disrepair while we were Students at UF in the early 80s and began overnight stays there in the early 90s in celebration of our anniversary . We've been through several owners starting with Sonny Howard who brought the house to its... More

Thank you for your review and we are so pleased you chose to celebrate your Anniversary with us here at the Herlong. We so appreciate our guests who return time and again and who have witnessed the care we all have invested in the upkeep of the Herlong. The Decor from the 80's was tired and worn after 30 years...

We're so pleased you enjoyed the friendliness, beauty and decor of the Herlong. We appreciate your suggestion and would love to put a ceiling fan in the Music Room but it would be a shame to take down the original chandelier in order to do so. We do have central A/C so at least the rooms are cool. We always... More

What a lovely B&B! My 83 year old mother & I stayed here for a family wedding over a long weekend. We stayed in a perfectly appointed suite on the second floor that opened onto a wonderful second floor balcony. My mother was an interior designer during her career, and she commented that the decor was just the right touch... More

The rooms were quaint and lovely, as are the grounds in this sleepy little town near Gainesville, FL. Their collection of walking sticks and antiques are amazing, and the rooms are very comfortable, as is the balcony with swings and seating on the upper floor of the mansion. Self-service check in was clearly explained and directions given for our late... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know that you enjoyed your stay at the Herlong.

This experience was very strange. The first night there, my party of 4 were the only folks in the place. A little creepy. Then, the next morning, the breakfast was simply not good. The quiche was bland, coffee not hot, etc... Rachel, the gal who worked there was pleasant however. I wish I could say the same about the owner.... More

This Review is a Complete Misrepresentation of their actual stay - This group of 4 ladies arrived WITH A DOG- without ever notifying us for prior approval. We were able to accommodate them only asking that they keep the dog in a crate in the room and with them at all times which they assured me they would. However, they... More

Stepping back in time with style... Our trip to North Florida brought us to Micanopy, a small, magic place near Gainesville that time forgot. We chose to stay at this historic mansion as we'd heard only good things about it and weren't disappointed - on the contrary. Stepping out of the car we found a beautiful house full of character,...

Our family gathered here last weekend to celebrate our nephew's graduation from the University of Florida in nearby Gainesville and what a welcome haven it was!
