Wonderful Inn with beautiful grounds!
First time to Gainesville en route to Georgia. Nice city, lots of restaurants. Inn was so pretty with gorgeous decor and gardens. Breakfast was wonderful and wine and cheese was available at 5. Staff were helpful and very friendly. Definitely will be back!

6/10 Good

Old and quaint
The cottage is very old but is clean and maintained. With that said noise can be an issue. You can clearly hear people next door and outside. The front door is not private and can be clearly seen from the inside and the outside. There is no shade or covering over the front door glass. Breakfast was delicious.
