About Us

         “ HERLONG MANSION HAS A SENSE OF PLACE…WITH THE CADENCE OF A LULLABY”   National Geographic   Amid the peace and quiet that is Micanopy, Florida’s oldest inland community, stands the gracious Herlong Mansion Historic Inn & Gardens. Surrounded by ancient oaks dripping in Spanish moss, the Herlong offers the serenity so often sought after these days but seldom found. The stresses of modern-day life fall away the moment you enter this elegant Inn built back in 1845. The Mansion retains the original 10 fireplaces, mahogany inlaid floors, mission oak woodwork, leaded glass windows and 12 beautifully decorated suites, rooms and cottages. Southern hospitality abounds with generous breakfasts served every morning as well as platters of home-baked cookies and wine presented in the evening. Come relax amidst this tranquil setting, settle into a swing bed on the veranda and unwind, let the stresses of everyday life melt away. The Herlong Mansion Inn is a small hotel with No One in Residence. We live a few blocks away and the Front Desk is closed at night.
