Guest Reviews for the Sweetwater Branch Inn

“Oh my! My wife and I stayed there for the Road Scholar Kayaking North Florida adventure. Arriving a few days early, we stayed in the Windsor cottage, moving into the Cornelia room for the adventure. Every detail was so thoughtful: from the perfectly restored Victorian homes to the sumptuous food.
Artwork and furnishings are appropriate to the 1890’s period in which the main houses were built. Updating, while preserving as much of this charm as possible, includes comfortable beds, quite adequate private bathrooms, accommodation of the needs of the digital age, and amenities such as filtered water and coffee machines in common areas.
The grounds are beautiful, and it’s a short walk through a beautiful park full of ancient oak trees to an active downtown area full of good restaurants; quite walkable.
The staff is attentive. The owner, Cornelia, seems to have superpowers: Always there to attend to every detail and support the adventure, which she is involved with, and may have initiated herself. There’s an obvious interest in, and active support of, historical and environmental concerns.
Such a refreshing change from anything a corporate-owned property can offer, and a joy in experiencing the personal touches expressed in such a well-designed and run, privately owned venue.”

“This inn was the perfect spot for a romantic weekend! The buildings and grounds are beautiful and kept up perfectly. Everything was extremely clean. Our room was very cute. Breakfast had lots of options, cooked in front of you, and it was great! They also offer complimentary wine and cheese in the evening. The staff were very helpful and patient. Downtown Gainesville is within a 10 min walk.”

“Fantastic! I felt so much at home, except better because they fed me so well. The staff, all the way up to the owner, were extremely conscious of making the customer feel comfortable. Besides being gorgeous, the environment is clean and feels very safe. Be sure to look at the history of the houses. The amount of work that the owner has (and continues to) put into the property is inspirational. I highly recommend staying at Sweetwater Branch.”
