My husband myself and our three children ages 17, 15 and 12 decided to stay here on our way to Walt Disney World. Regular hotels are nice, but The Daffodale House offers a true B&B experience unlike any other. When we travel, we like to surprise our children with new & fun experiences that are outside of the norm. Driving up to a Haunted 100+ year old Victorian Home and announcing to the kids that this is where we were going to all spend the night definitely shocked all three of our kiddos. It was so much fun! Kathy, the lady of the house, is very responsive online, and she was extremely accommodating and easy to work with in preparing for our stay. We made reservations in advance for Kathy to cook dinner the evening of our arrival and for her husband, Scott, to give us a ghost tour afterwards. I highly recommend travelers do both. Kathy is a marvelous cook and served us a delicious dinner complete with a lovely desert and her famous peach sweet tea. My children are the pickiest of eaters and do have food allergy. Kathy was graciously accommodating and her food was so delicious! (My husband had the mahi-mahi, daughter ordered the ribeye, youngest son had the chicken and myself and my oldest son ordered the ravioli.) Everyone in the family cleaned their plate--a true rare event indeed! Scott is a natural and genuine entertainer with his fabulous stories about the artifacts throughout the property. The entire family enjoyed our conversations with him. My youngest child, in particular, loved hanging out with Mr. Scott as the two walked around the home taking photos and videos "hunting" to try to catch some of the "long term residents" on camera. As a Realtor, I enter a lot of homes. I don't like to see dust anywhere and if I am going to stay the night somewhere, cleanliness is a top priority. The Daffodale was absolutely spotless, 5 stars all the way. The sheets were clean and soft and the beds comfortable. The set up made it easy for us to adjust the temperature of the room to our liking and the bathroom with oversized shower was more than sufficient. Our entire family had a good night's sleep. The grounds in general are unique with beautiful flowers and a peaceful bamboo forest that seems to quietly sing as the wind blows through the leaves. Kathy and Scott treat their guests like family. I hope our children have as much fun at Disney as they did at The Daffodale House. We will definitely be back.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Daffodale House for two nights for my husband's work trip. What a lovely place to stay! When we arrived that night, Scott met us outside to show us where to park and to escort us into the huge, welcoming house. We enjoyed Cathy's delicious cooking that night as we savored the perfectly cooked ribeye which was smothered in mushrooms and onions, garlic smashed potatoes, lobster bisque, and Cathy's famous peach tea. We wrapped up our meal with delicious desserts and the best coffee we've ever had. We had the joy of staying in the Safari room which is perfectly decorated and super cozy - and the king size bed in there is incredibly comfortable. We awoke the next two morning to a flavorful breakfast. Scott and Cathy welcome you in and are so accommodating and super friendly. We cannot recommend this place enough! Do yourself a favor and go enjoy a few nights there!

We had a very late arrival and Scott let us in and was extremely welcoming. Our bedroom was great! My husband and I had a very comfortable bed and my son slept on a very comfortable roll away as well. The shower had great pressure and the room had so many cool antiques and special touches. We had to eat and leave quickly and the breakfast was amazing and Scott and Cathy could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Very cool house with lots of great stories to go along with it. Would love to come back again! .

I am from Tallahassee, FL and had no idea something so charming was so close. My friend took me here for the dinner and a show and it was fantastic. Cathy and Scott are so warm, welcoming, and tons of fun! Cathy made the dinner and there wasn't a single thing we didn't love. The fresh, homemade rosemary bread was my favorite. No wait, the homemade sweet peach tea. No, the coffee. The coffee was so good I had to buy some! Really, all of the food was exceptional and the best part, is tat she has a cookbook, so you can make everything she made. The house is absolutely beautiful and charming. As soon as you walk up, you can hear the wind chimes blowing and we were immediately transported to a simpler time. There's tons of cozy seating outside ad even games to play. But when you walk in, WOW!! So many fun things to see, and "It's all for sale" to quote Scott. :-) He has so many fun and unique items that he has collected, bargain, and traded for over the years and great stories to go with each item. We toured the outside of the home and learned about the history of not only the home but the many older plants and trees. The grounds are wonderful and even a few movies have been filmed there. At the end of our meal, we were able to do a ghost hunt and explore the rest of the home and see all of the fun and beautiful rooms. This dinner and a show was completely worth it and exceeded our expectations. We can't wait to go back and stay the night as well as eat more meals there. In fact, they even do an authentic high tea. I can't believe how easy it was to get there, they are located right off of Highway 90 which leads straight into the heart of Tallahassee. Had I known this was here years ago, I would've made this my go to place long ago!

Our first time stay and visit to this charming, old South area! The owners, Cathy and Scott were quite fun, interesting and made our stay very enjoyable. They went out of their way to may us feel very comfortable and gain us as a returning , future customer. Their collection of artwork, antiques and many additional unique collectibles on every wall, was very impressive and remarkable! ( Even the Bee Gee's suitcase). We had two rooms and enjoyed the solitude, but would recommend staying in a room with either double beds or a queen. The standard bed would be great for newlyweds, but not so much for grandparents. The park like grounds are totally incredible! Scotty was very knowledgeable of all of the beautiful plants, trees and history of the property. Amazing beauty in this natural, old South setting! A real keeper for us, and very enjoyable! Would highly recommend! Thank you Gary and Claudia.

Cathy and her husband are amazing host. Very kind, bubbly, and nurturing hosts. Cathy made delicious meals both breakfast and dinner. We got picks with Santa and they always have good tips on what to do while in town. We stayed in the carriage house and it was cozy and warm. This was our third annual trip and will be beach. Ext year.

We loved staying here this past weekend. This place is pet friendly. The owners and staff wnet out of their way to make our stay better than imagined. Friendly and such a peaceful place to stay. The restaurant had wonderful food. Really awesome food, not your average fare. Something for everyone's likes, served timely with a smile. Loved our talks with Scot. Our room was the Carriage House. It is huge! lots of room, large bathroom, kitchen and king sized raised bed. Our room is like a mini Mid-west themed mini museum. Lots of original paintings that are really beautifully painted. Every turn was something more fascinating to catch my attention. The bathtub is large and deep, with shower. I think you will enjoy staying there, too. Worth the short drive even if you just come for tea or dinner. Pet Friendly.
