Charming and comfortablePosted Aug 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
We really enjoyed our two nights. Breakfast and then afternoon wine and cheese were super.

Outstanding Bed & BreakfastPosted Aug 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
Sweetwater Branch Inn is an oasis nestled not far from downtown Gainesville. The accommodations were outstanding, the staff very courteous and helpful and the breakfasts were scrumptious.

Wonderful and very close to UF campus.Posted Aug 12, 2013
Pros: The king sized bed was so comfortable. The pillows were plentiful, plump down/feather pillows. The kitchen and bathrooms spotless, with ample supplies
Cons: I can't think of a thing. We were all very happy.
Location: Less than five minutes from UF campus and downtown Gainesville. Located in a quiet, pleasant neighborhood. Shade helped with heat.
I would highly recommend this B&B to parents of graduates, or anyone coming for any length of stay. The breakfast was outstanding. We stayed in the Norabell cabin, very roomy, comfortable and high quality. I wish we could have stayed longer. The grounds were beautiful. Staff helped us with campus maps. I needed a computer in a hurry and the proprietor was just a gem!

Beautiful Lodgings and GroundsPosted Jul 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The building was beautiful and well-maintained. We loved the beautiful garden and fish pond, and old-fashioned outdoor porches. Enjoyed having wine and cheese in the parlor with a lovely young couple from Switzerland. Would have rated everything as a 5 except the bed was uncomfortable, but I guess that isn't unusual in a bed-and-breakfast. We traded off the comfort of a king-size bed in a cookie cutter hotel room for the charm of this lodging and overall were very glad that we did. I would stay here again.

Getaway B & BPosted Jun 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a great time relaxing, enjoying new pool, swings, rocking chairs & night time string lights in garden. Good chocolate brownies & candies on arrival, plentiful & hardy breakfast. Quaint room decor & patio jacuzzi.

Had to movePosted Feb 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Had to change rooms as desk said I was booked in two different rooms. I'm pretty sure that wasn't true. Room was an old house with unknown other guests in same house and although they were nice, it was still very noisy. Old house, creaky floors, poor insulation. Wouldn't go back.
Lovely placePosted Jan 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great place to stay. Our room was small, however it was clean and nice. The service was excellent. We arrived late for the evening wine and cheese, yet the staff made a cheese plate and wine just for us! I would definitely recommend this place. The gardens are lovely and peaceful. It's a short walk downtown and convenient to everything downtown.

A Relaxing Stay in a College HubPosted Aug 21, 2012
A lovely bed and breakfast The furnishings are beautiful without being stuffy. I happened to stay at a low travel time, and I found the environment to be peaceful and relaxing; The breakfast was delicious with many choices available. This is vastly different from a Holiday Inn and I would not bring young children as it is not designed for their needs.

A home away from homePosted May 15, 2012
My daughter and I had a most delightful stay in the renovated home turned into a B&B. It was so much more than we expected. We have stayed at B&Bs in the past, but this one went above and beyond what we had expected in the past. The staff and owner were very gracious, the home-made breakfast, the wine and cheese and the recommendation for a dinner spot. For anyone looking for a home away from home, this is it.
