I stayed here twice this spring for over a week both times. I combined pleasure with work. I stayed at both Spats and an apartment (Hodges?). The Inn is very quiet and peaceful. Pat is a great cook (over the top brownies and breakfast). The Inn is a 5-10 min walk to downtown and too many restaurants as well as the farmer's market. Since I had a small kitchen, I enjoyed making a couple of dinners in and having fantastic FL blueberries with a bit of cerial for breakfast a few days.
Much better and quieter than the Hampton Inn downtown. Fine WiFi. Pat had super suggestions to solve all my problems including great restaurants! Place even came with a friendly outdoor cat.
