Visiting the Herlong Mansion has been a longtime wish that came true this past weekend. The charming turn of the century mansion is located in the sleepy Florida town of Micanopy, and staying there felt like stepping back in time to an era when life was more genteel and people took pleasure in talking with one another. The innkeeper went out of her way to make us feel welcome, and I admit to falling in love with her little dog, Pekoe! My husband and I stayed in the Dogwood room and our friends were just across the hall in the Herlong Suite. Both rooms were large and had direct access to the upstairs patio. Our bed with its super soft sheets and perfect pillow made for a good night's sleep, and breakfast was plentiful. We spent an afternoon on the upstairs verandah with its very impressive columns, swaying on the porch swing and rocking in the chairs, and one evening after the Gator game in the parlor, just hanging out while the TV was tuned to more college football. The town itself is beautiful with quaint cafes and antique shops, and the perfect place to take a Sunday stroll to enjoy the authenticity and peaceful ambiance of a small Florida town. Dinner the first night was at the nearby Yearling where the red fish, butter beans and greens were delicious. We also ordered a bottle of Chianti that was surprisingly good. For a two night getaway, this destination was perfection if your goal is to slow down, catch up with friends and immerse yourself in authentic Florida!
