When God got around to making innkeepers, He created Monta and Peggy...and then He should have quit while He was ahead.
To be more specific and less ethereal, the grounds are gorgeous inside and out, the hosts are as welcoming as you can imagine from the first moment to the last, and everything about your stay is about comfort and convenience. You can pay a very fair rate, especially if you're willing to settle for a slightly smaller but still more than sufficient Library room, or for a modest increase you can stay in a bigger and even more well-equipped accommodation upstairs.
The breakfasts you're served might--literally--be the best breakfast anyone has ever placed before you in your entire life. Warm, wonderful cookies await you at any given moment. And comped alcohol at happy hour? Come on...that's almost too much!
Just because reviews seem inauthentic if there's not even a minor quibble, I did wish the window blinds were as wide as the windows themselves to keep out some more light. But that reduces my rating to 4.99999 out of 5.
If you think I'm exaggerating, I strongly encourage you to wander down to Gainesville and find out for yourself. You'll be thrilled you did.
