I saw this listed here on Trip Advisor like a B and B and decided to do some research. The website looked legit with different options, so I called to reserve a room. My husband and I are going to the botanical gardens for a concert and wanted to stay nearby. Carolyn and DeeDee were very friendly and said there was an availability, so I booked it. We arrived today and were greeted by Carolyn, who directed us to the hose next door. It was completely unfurnished except for an air mattress and a wooden TV tray in the bedroom, and a couple of canvas camping chairs in another room. We were advised that the water may appear rusty in the tub, but wouldn’t come from the faucet that way. I thought she was kidding when she showed us the room with the air mattress, but that was the only option. If I had been advised of this, I wouldn’t have booked our stay here at all. It’s a funny story now and I ended up booking at a hotel instead. Make sure you know what you’re getting when you book a reservation here.

We have stayed at Heron Cove a number of times and each time we have had a delightful experience. Carolyn and DeeDee are gracious hosts and provide a scrumptious breakfast. The suites (we have stayed in both) are spacious and well- maintained. A great value in a beautiful locale! We look forward to our next visit!!

My husband and I have stayed at Heron Cove for a weekend in September for the past four years and look forward to this special getaway! From communications to arrival, DeeDee and Carolyn are wonderful hosts! Love the suite but the highlight is having breakfast upstairs in their dining room which overlooks the lake. The breakfast is so special served on beautiful oriental china and their decor is like a relaxing spa getaway. You will want to stay here on your next visit to the area.

We stayed 2 nights. The lake is beautiful and the food was superb. Carolyn and Dee Dee were both very accommodating to us. Thank you for a wonderful visit to Gainesville. The town of Gainesville was very quaint. Loved the market on the square.

When we arrived at the Heron, the hosts greeted us and gave us a tour of their spacious guest suite. We walked out to the lake and enjoyed their dock. Next time we'll bring kayaks or rent them from an outfit nearby. Breakfast was made from scratch with an exquisite marmalade. Served on fine china, our fresh laid eggs were enjoyed in the relaxing dining room as we viewed deer and many different birds from our host's deck. After eating, we visited the owners' vegetable gardens, very cute chickens and fitted in a 30 minute walk. We plan on returning to the Heron and inviting other family members to join us. This is a jewel not to be missed!
