This totally renovated bed and breakfast inn includes several rooms along with secluded cottages. It is in the heart of downtown Gainesville and close to many shops and restaurants and is a brief hop to the University of Florida.
Joe and Cindy Montalto purchased what was then known as the Baird Mansion and transformed the 1885 French Second Empire Victorian structure into the completely restored inn you will enjoy today.
The inn has received many honors including "Most Romantic Bed and Breakfast in Florida" by Most Romantic Escapes; "Best Bed and Breakfast in Florida" by Florida Living Magazine. The inn has also been featured in Southern Living Magazine.
You should know that the inn is usually booked solid for University of Florida football game weekends.
