I stayed at The Grady House this past weekend and had the best time! Lucie and Paul show the best hospitality and make your stay at this gorgeous house unforgettable! I stayed in Skeet's Cottage along with my mother, aunt, and cousin for our second annual Mother/ Daughter trip. The house is wonderful for a family or a group of people. The rooms are a great size and the beds are very comfortable. The bathroom is adorable, especially the claw foot bathtub. I also liked having a kitchen as well because we were able to keep food and drinks for our stay. We were able to spread out within the house, which is wonderful when 4 ladies are staying together!
When we first arrived, Lucie showed us around the place and we met their lovely Grady Bunch! Their dalmations are precious and if you have time, take a minute to ask if you can meet them. Lucie then showed us to the area where she keeps fresh baked cookies, along with coffee, water, and sodas. These are accessible to all guests and it was a great afternoon treat! We also saw the sitting room, complete with excellent information about the house, and the library full of books and DVDs you can watch in your room.
Now that I have taken the time to talk about the house, I MUST tell you about the breakfast! We stayed 4 nights and had something different for breakfast every morning. Each day's meal was to die for! Lucie fixes a two course breakfast every morning. The first course consisted of fresh fruit and some kind of muffin or bread and the second course was something either sweet based or salty based. Each day was great! Oh, and Lucie asked us at the beginning of our stay about food allergies and told us she could fix it accordingly. Lucie and Paul also ask that you take the time to relax and enjoy the food and the talking after you are finished eating. We got to know several people while we were there and it was nice to just relax and have a nice breakfast.This was also a great time to ask Paul and Lucie about things to do in High Springs. They gave the best suggestions and it was just fun talking with them.
I could keep going on, but you MUST visit this bed and breakfast. I am already trying to plan a trip for my husband and I to go. I know he would love the house and hospitality! You really should take a trip and stay at The Grady House. It is located in a small town, but they have things to do there if you want to just get away and relax for a few days!
