My husband and I spent one night at the Higgins House while on a bicycle tour of Central Florida. Our hostess, Lisa, was delightful and served an absolutely delicious breakfast. We loved hearing about the history of the B&B and the long term family connections. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The entire B&B is beautifully decorated, but not overdone. We were within walking distance to the nighttime activity in downtown Sanford, including good restaurants and brew pubs. I highly recommend Higgins House, and we will definitely return!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! It was equally delightful to hear of your cycling adventures... they were very inspiring!
We welcome cyclists and other adventurers to visit our lovely area, and to make Sanford and the Higgins House a delightful base or respite stop for exploration and relaxation.

Regards, Lisa

This lovely well-maintained home was built by the owner's great grandfather. The house is on the National Register, of Historic Places, circa 1894. There are three beautifully appointed bedrooms with private baths with showers. Guests are welcome to use the living area, the sitting room with TV, the spacious front porch, or the lovely back yard. Our host Lisa Hurt was very gracious and prepared the best breakfast, so much more than we could eat. She started with fresh strawberries and mini-blueberry muffins. Then followed with slices of canteloupe, blueberries and blackberries beautifully presented. The breakfast continued with Baked Eggs, fresh tomatoes broiled with cheese, fresh home fries, and English Muffin. All served in the beautiful Victorian dining room. This was a lovely, relaxing experience. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Each room has a theme. The downstairs room has a walk-in shower; the upstairs rooms have claw foot tubs with showers.

We stayed here for the night after flying into the Orlando airport from Scotland.This B&B was so elegant. The owners were so nice and offered us a whiskey and sat and chatted with us for a while when we got in. The breakfast the next morning was home cooked and so delicious, we really appreciated all of the work that they put into it. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and cozy. I will definitely come back should we stay a weekend in Sanford.

This is a pretty old house.

As we were driving into down, we travelled through an area that was rundown and were wondering about the neighborhood.

The house next door has a no trespassing sign on it.

The B&B was nice though and the area it was in looked ok. There are several restaurants in a cute downtown area very close by.

We enjoyed our stay here.

The area in Sanford is historic and beautiful and Higgins House itself is just gorgeous! It's an easy walk to a good selection of dinner places. And Patty, the proprietress, was friendly and so sweet. We will definitely stay there again!
