This property is the only option in the small town of Micanopy. It is for sale and it is obvious that the current owners are scrimping somewhat. It would also appear to not be run by business oriented owners. The property itself while somewhat tired and in need of sprucing up is a fine example of an old mansion. Wallpaper...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We enjoyed hosting you for our Annual Fall Festival weekend. Yes, the Herlong is for sale - however, it is being run with the same care and amenities as always. I have lovingly owned the Inn for 11 years and am hoping to give someone else the honor of continuing...

Vintage photographs and contemporary artwork enhance this stately residence. Our second floor, front corner room was well appointed, clean and amply updated. The restoration is superb and the house has a cozy comfort level oftentimes not found...

Met my daughter and her family there for a weekend get-a-way and it was wonderful. My husband and I were in the Magnolia Room and it was beautiful and spacious. The mattress was perfect. Antique furnishings throughout the house were beautiful. It is right in the middle of town so you can stroll to most of the stores and restaurants....

Should I start with the noisy kids across the street? Or how about the lemon yellow tub water? How about the undusted bottom of a shelf? Well the noisy kids were college kids having fun. The yellow tub water was just a reflection from my robe. They had dusted hundreds of other furniture items which probably exhausted them. Carolyn and...

We're so pleased you enjoyed the friendliness, beauty and decor of the Herlong. We appreciate your suggestion and would love to put a ceiling fan in the Music Room but it would be a shame to take down the original chandelier in order to do so. We do have central A/C so at least the rooms are cool. We always...
