This peaceful, plant-filled room has a private bath with standing shower, private entrace access to screened back porch. The room is a modern addition to 1890 home with double bed and pull out couch. We are located in Gainesville's historic Duckpond neighborhood and love it. Its only a 10 minute walk to downtown restaurants and night life, or the historic Thomas Center and the playground at Roper Park. UF campus and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium are a short 2 miles away.

Hi Tina, Thank you for the feedback. We will look into getting a strip to place under the door for when guests stay with us, and I think you're right about doing a better job with the temperature control. We should have set it cooler for your arrival. We appreciate the honest feedback, we still haven't had a ton of guests and your response will make us better hosts. Thanks for staying with us!

Comfortable and a great location adorned with lovely gardens. Sound travels from the main house (kitchen/bath) to guest quarters.

Claire was incredibly warm and welcoming! We experienced some bad travel luck on our way in with cancelled flights, and she was accommodating and encouraging. After hours on the road, we were met by friendly dogs, a beautiful garden, and friendly faces. The room is very private, …
