We had a lovely stay in the Lady Clare room downstairs. The room was beautifully appointed, very comfortable bed, super soft towels and a great shower. Pat and Tom were very wonderful and our breakfast was absolutely delicious! Would definitely stay here again if I go to Gainesville. I highly recommend it!

I planned to stay with family in Gainesville, but at the last-minute allergies sent me looking for alternate accommodations. I was so happy that Pat had a room available, and she was welcoming and gracious both at check-in and at breakfast. The room had a lovely private porch overlooking the garden, and everything was clean and beautifully decorated. I needed...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

After a very long flight from Kenai, Alaska, the Inn was a perfect place to gather my thoughts and relax. I stayed in the little (very spacious) cottage. Unfortunately business took me to Gainesville so I didn't get to mingle as I had planned; so I'll do another trip so I can make it to "happy hour" in the evening....
