“Encore Visit”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

We just completed an encore stay at this bed and breakfast. It is a fantastic place in High Springs, a small Florida town north of Ocala. The inn keepers are terrific people, the breakfast fantastic and the ambiance second to none. All the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with a different theme for each. I highly recommend the Grady House and will stay again for a get-away or if we are passing through to another destination.

What a find. This place is wonderful & a particular treat for art deco fansl.Comfortable and quirky with superb huge breakfastsPretty garden,full of robins and waxwings when we visited.Not only that Lucie who runs the place has rescued dalmatians and hints of the lovely dogs(I used to own one) are about the place in terms of cute jugs and so on. Also close to some fantastic Springs...we loved Itchetucknee which we had to ourselves.We had a suite for just 2 nights and would go back next time in Florida...its worth a detour. High Springs itself is small but an interesting and friendly little town.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back would be quietest as away from the road but if noise is not a problem all we looke...

We recently spent 3 nights here & can attest to wonderful breakfasts, which eliminated the need for lunch! The rooms are quite nice, clean & spacious. The garden is beautiful although we were a little too early for the flowers.
Would definitely stay here again if we're in the area.

Spent two nights at the Grady House on route to do some work in North Florida. The house itself is beautiful; the room was top notch and the the large garden area was a pleasure to walk. Plenty of bird watching as well. Paul and Lucie are both terrrific and Lucie makes some of the best breakfast we have ever had! Even the Dalmatians were a pleasure to be around. Will definitely go back without hesitation.

This was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and didn't know how things worked. Paul and Lucy (the owners) are delightful people, and put at ease very quickly. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas, the room was very large with it's own bathroom (a concern of mine). I was so afraid of missing breakfast that I had dreams about it. In the morning when we came down (early) for breakfast, I shared that dream with Lucy and later Paul was joking with me about it, again making me feel at ease and very comfortable. Breakfast was shared with two other couples, the conversation was easy and Paul shared his knowledge of Maple syrup with us. The food was absolutely delicious, and the people were even better. I would definitely go again and I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

From the minute our group of four arrived at the inn, Paul welcomed us and made us feel quite at home with his charming banter. We arrived late (11 pm), but had called to inform Paul and Lucy, and they were very accommodating (thanks!). The Grady House is easy to locate on one of the main streets in High Springs, and is a convenient short walk from downtown and the Great Outdoors Restaurant. The attention given to the inn's decor is noticeable even from the street - this is the sort of guest house you drive by and wish you had made reservations at - even if you only live an hour away. The house is perfect - old with just the right amount of character, but none of the annoyances (at least for the guests!). The tasteful decor continues from the front porch, through the living and dining areas, into each different bedroom. I stayed in the navy room for two nights with a friend and absolutely loved it. The other two in our party stayed in the peach room the first night and the yellow room the last night.

The navy room was superb. I loved the clawfoot bathtub in the bathroom. This room is actually two rooms - the front room has a daybed, coffee table, and armoire - more of a living/ visiting area, but worked great for us, as we were two friends sharing a room. The second of the two rooms is the main bedroom, with a very comfortable queen bed - the kind you sink into and never want to leave. This turned out to be a major plus - I actually wound up spending the second day at the inn with a bit of a cold - the cleaning staff was exceptional, and so sweet - when they offered to make up the room, and I told them I was sick, they brought up a tray of tea for me, and even offered soup.

In the morning, breakfast is served by Lucy with flourish - the herb baked eggs were my absolute favorite, and the lemon pancakes were no less fabulous. A wonderful way to start your day! Other small touches include separate beach towels provided for taking down to the river/ springs (wonderful!), wine/ beer, tea, hot chocolate, etc. available in the dining areas. We took advantage of the different outdoor seating areas to have a nightcap, but also gathered in the fireplace room and chatted with the other guests.

The inn is close to all the rivers and springs in the High Springs area - a great home base for diving, kayaking/ canoeing adventures. Parking at the inn is located off the main street, but you can park right in front to move your luggage. There is a large, beautiful garden area to enjoy the outdoors during your stay, and a great selection of books and movies available.

Really, there were so many other small things I enjoyed about our short stay with Paul and Lucy, and I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: The navy room was perfect, I loved it. The sitting room/ spare bedroom in the navy and peach rooms...
