We want to thank  you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding weekend. We had an amazing time and everyone loved the wedding. It wouldn't have gone as smoothly without you. Also, t hank you for the wonderful Easter buffet and allowing us to do an Easter egg hunt. We all had a blast! I'm sure we'll be back!! --The Nasts

To Sachi -- Precious pet know that you are loved and you were a BIG hit at the Power's March 10th wedding. The roses were lovely, but you were beautiful!! Thank all your "keepers" especially your mom for helping all the Powers have a wonderful wedding. Perhaps we can return and hug you again!

Thank you for a wonderful stay! We had a wonderful time! The getaway was just what we wanted. I can hardly wait until we come back! The Herlong Suite was absolutely fabulous. I would love to stay once in all the rooms....Thank you for bringing up our breakfast to the room. It was totally unexpected. We appreciate the little things. The little things are what made our stay there so wonderful. Thanks again for all the hospitality and the beautiful accommodations--Your devoted guests.

A wonderful flashback to my youth in Scotland--but better!

By far the loveliest B&B in the United States! We stayed in Mae's and Dorothy's rooms. The staff is very warm and friendly making our stay as homey as possible. This is our second visit and hope to make many more. -- The Wheelers.

What a wonderful night! We enjoyed thinking about the past and talking about the future. This place is an inspiration and reminds us to enjoy the present!!

A beautiful room, wedding and just a lovely stay. What a pleasure to step back in time. We shall return!!

We had a wonderful two days at this beautiful mansion. We enjoyed everything from the delicious cinnamon rolls to the singing birdie outside our window...!

Very efficient--a real change from Orlando. We enjoyed our stay very much!

What a perfect time and place to spend our 28th wedding anniversary. We've been coming here since we met in 1986 where we've spent countless nights with and without our three beautiful children! The memories will always stay near to our hearts. The mansion has a peace about it that I hope pleases the countless spirits that created this home. May everyone that has created such a place be blessed in body, mind and spirit!

We want to thank you for making our first anniversary a memorable time. The Pump House was everything and more that your website said. And any five-star place could take some lessons from  your staff, they were grand!

Just a nice home to visit! Spending time here with my wife of sixty years was like a honeymoon. It was wonderful that the hosts have maintained this home for the pleasure of all!!

In the Dorothy room, Charlie asked this "Dorothy" to be his wife! We enjoyed our time together here, thank you!

Thank you for our stay. It was a little bit of heaven....

Thank you for everything you did to make our daughter's wedding a joyful and stress free occasion. I don't know what we would have done without you to answer questions and make arrangements during an already busy season. Your smiles and good cheer throughout our stay made the wedding a delight. We are also grateful for the incomparable accommodations. All of our guests were extremely complimentary. The rooms were both well decorated and comfortable. I am so glad we were able to rent the whole mansion. We couldn't have picked a better place. Breakfast with our guests was an added touch of class to an already wonderful wedding occasion. In addition, your recommendations for photographer, caterer, and carriage ride were superb. Again, many thanks for making the wedding an occasion to remember. --Betty and Elden Jackson , Palatka, Florida

Thank you for your hospitality.  My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Herlong Mansion. The accommodations and meals were outstanding.  It was great to explore the Mansion and spend time just relaxing on the porch with some very fine red wine.  Please pass our sincere appreciation to your staff for taking such good care of us!

We had an excellent stay and enjoyed such a great time!  It was a comfortable and enjoyable vacation. Thank you for a great time.  We enjoyed your quaint town, as the people were so warm and friendly.  Looking forward to another stay!

On behalf of [our group], I would like to thank you for the lovely time we had at the Herlong Mansion! Everyone was so enthusiastic that we are planning another visit when the ladies are back in town.  Thank you for your graciousness and the friendliness of your staff.  It is a lovely old mansion! 

Thank you so much!!  My team had a great time and had the experience of a lifetime.  This sleepover brought us a lot closer and was an awesome bonding experience.  Everyone thought the house was so beautiful and we all loved it and had a SUPER time! 

Thank you again for the lovely accommodations, excellent service and outstanding presentation you provided for [our] wedding festivities! You and your staff are to be commended for your pleasant, efficient service and cooperative nature. The rooms were immaculate and were kept that way throughout the event despite the presence of almost 40 guests and their children.  The mansion and grounds were pristine in appearance and were further enhanced by the additional flowers and special touches you added to make the wedding day such a fairy tale event!  Numerous guests commented on the magnificent accommodations and how your facility lent itself to "the most beautiful wedding" they had ever attended.  We are so grateful to you for helping to make this special day so memorable for our family and friends.

Thank you for making our wedding day so perfect!  You attended to our needs both big and small and your attention to detail was outstanding. You and your staff are commended for your hospitality!!  Thank you again and we will see you in a year for our anniversary!
