We came here for a
Wedding and we stayed in the Victoria Cottage... It was the perfect venue for a medium size evening wedding, it has indoor/outdoor space which was truly Decorated amazing!
The grounds are really pretty and the buildings have that victorian feel. The cottages are across the street from the back of the property and it was perfect for those wanting a little more space than just a bedroom. We had a private parking lot in the cottage area also which was convenient.
Our cottage had a living room, full kitchen, patio out front with rocking chairs, patio out back with a hot tub, internet was included. The furnishings are all antiques so if your expecting brand new or modern, this will not be for you... It was
Very spotless!!

We enjoyed the breakfast every morning, nice variety and plenty of seating. There is also an evening wine and cheese hour which was a
Nice touch.
I will say the staff was very friendly, helpful and hardworking... Very accomodating!
There is some great restaurants very nearby downtown, we enjoyed Paramount Grille and Harrys and the University of Florida campus is a 5 minute drive down the street!

Initially, The neighborhood around the area had us a bit concerned at first glance, but we felt secure and safe the whole visit.
I would highly recommend this property!

My son had his wedding at the Sweetwater Inn in October. This is just one really nice place and the staff is outstanding. The staff and the Inn have a true southern charm!

Our friends and family rented around 10 rooms and we stayed in the cottages in the back.

The cottages have kitchens so you can make some meals and no always run out to restaurants to eat. The rooms are old style decorated and my wife described them as cozy... made you feel at home. The beds were very comfortable.

The cottages have these nice porches that we sat outside in the evening enjoying our wine with friends.

Their family style country breakfast was really nice and wine / cheese happy hours were a nice way to end the day.

They installed a pool this past year and my family enjoyed it. They even rent bikes for $5 to ride around town.

We made many requests of the staff during our several day stay and they never disappointed us!

Room Tip: Get a cottage in the back if you have a family

My youngest daughter decided to have her wedding at Sweetwater Branch Inn,(Bed & Breakfast) in Gainesville, Florida. We met with Lauren and Sarah through the planning process and they were exceptional.. The day of the wedding was perfect. Sarah L. was the planner that was in charge of all the Sweetwater task that day and she was absolutely on top of everything. The bride and groom said that she was always there asking if she could do anything for them and if they needed anything. Me and Jan (father of the bride, Beka) said the same thing. Sarah L. was there for us also, asking if we needed anything. We wondered how she was so available to all of us, like there were 4 of her instead of just one. The grounds were beautiful and the wedding was at the colonnade, which was the perfect setting for us. The food, heavy hors d'oeuvres never ran out. Our guest were well fed and well served. I highly recommend Sweetwater for wedding events.

Had a wonderful birthday visit with my daughter, so the Inn was the best place to stay. We enjoyed the whole house, especially the porch! Everyone was very thoughtful and considerate. I have dietary restrictions and special attention was given to my breakfast. We will return.
