For a bed and breakfast inn, this is one of the most charming and delightful places I have ever stayed. Our cottage had a formal sitting room which we never used because the sun room was so perfect and cozy. Of course, there was a kitchen but because we were visiting my college daughter, we ate out all meals other than the delicious morning breakfast at the summer kitchen. (Cindy even made sure that my gluten free diet was taken care of, even though I cheated on one of the small yummy muffins.)
Joe and Cindy make everyone feel like family and part of the experience is just talking with them and hearing Gainesville lore.
The cottage is perfect for two couples, families or a bunch of friends getting together as long as you are not too rowdy. This is an inside joke that you can learn about by reading their interesting notebook in the cottage.
