“Road trip with my mother!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

I'm taking my 83 yr. old mother on a road trip to visit with friends and family and we decided to make a stop at the Camellia Rose Inn in Gainesville, FL. What a wonderful choice. The room was beautifully appointed, clean and comfortable. Our breakfast was delicious and the host and hostess, Tom & Pat McCants could not have been more helpful with restaurant & local information. I plan on coming back through here with my husband very soon! Thanks for the lovely evening. Mother and I will not soon forget it.

We love to stay in B&B's and Spat's Hideaway was perfect for our family of 4. With a queen bed and a trundle for my teenage boys there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved the jacuzzi tub and being able to walk to the town restaurants was great. Most of all we loved the innkeeper who was hospitable and knowledgeable about the area and cooked a great breakfast...

What a beautiful place to stay. Pat has a knack for decorating and an eye for details. Her place is immaculate. We enjoyed the breakfast, mornings sitting on the top porch and a yummy late night snack. She has done a wonderful job creating a warm and relaxing place to stay. She was flexible with our schedule changes and even dropping in early to check in. My sister, her husband and my husband stayed 2 nights as we moved our son into the university. She gave us lots of pointers (shopping/restaurants/directions) for getting around and we enjoyed getting to know her. We will most definitely be back. Lovely place and a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: great website

We were welcomed by Pat despite showing up unannounced and without reservations. It's a nice walk to downtown Gainesville. The breakfasts were yummy and we enjoyed using the upper porch in the evenings. Elegant and good value @ $300 for 2 nights.

What a wonderful time my sister and I had! Very relaxing and such charm. The beds are extremly comfortable and perfect for naps during rain storms! Breakfast each morning was sooo goooood! The entire property is wonderfully maintained and decorated in the period of the age of the inn. Pat and Tom are wonderful inn keepers and we have plans for another trip already.

I chose this wonderful B and B to stay at while our dog Nellie was seen at the U of F veterinary school. I immediately felt at home when I walked in the spacious and cozy cottage. The bed is soooo comfortable and the pretty views out the windows, of the giant oak trees is spectacular! The decor is done so nicely!! pretty dishes, wonderful meals and happy hour snacks. Not to mention the awesome brownies!! Pat and Tom are really great hosts and know how to make you feel comfy!!When traveling alone, it's nice to stay where there will be other people to visit with. And the beautiful wraparound porch is my dream porch. I could sit there for hours!!
This is also a great location to walk to town from. No car needed!! Great food in town and seems like there is a lot to do.
I felt very rested staying here!!

Room Tip: Cottage is quiet and peaceful. And pet friendly

It was our first B and B experience and we loved it! The home is beautiful and exquisitely decorated. The food was great and so were the hostesses! It was a warm and inviting environment. There was nothing that we would have changed about the weekend.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lady Clare room on the first floor. Would choose it again without a doubt!
