While trying to book a hotel room for a business appointment and discovering a major convention was going to be held in Gainesville, I desperately searched for alternatives and discovered a place far above a hotel room: Sweetwater Branch Inn.
My husband and I have stayed at bed and breakfasts before, but always as a vacation or celebration, due to location, costs, and time elements. As it turned out, the Sweetwater Branch Inn is conveniently located to downtown Gainesville (walking distance of fewer than eight blocks), Shands, and UF. The cost was competitive, if not less, than some of the hotels. The homemade breakfast was one of the best that we have had (hope that you get there when Cornelia makes cheese grits!). The room was charming with firm bed, warm quilts, updated plumbing, enchanting gardens and lively conversation if you desire!
For dinner, we walked downtown through a lovely city park, found a variety of restaurants, enjoyed a sumptious meal, and meandered back to our room.
One of the best business weekends we have enjoyed!
