Staying here was a completely different and worth while experience. We have been on tours of historic homes before, but had never stayed in one. The first night we stayed in Isadora. While it looked clean and was comfortable, it had a rather funky old home smell involved. However, the room was very unique with vaulted ceilings and a gorgeous sitting room complete with a window bench. The next night, we were scheduled to stay in Luisa, but she was leaking water from a pipe somewhere. Elyse was very helpful in relocating us to the Tea Rose room, and she made sure we were completely satisfied with the switch. You MUST understand that this home is probably over 100 years old and it WILL have its old home issues.
Our favorite parts of the stay were the complementary wine and cheese hour and breakfast! They served that most delicious french toast casserole and frittatas each morning. Property was walking distance to downtown. Linens were soft and cozy. Also, water and coffee are provided in both of the houses for whenever you want it. When we come back to visit Gainesville, we would definitely stay again!
