Our friends were visiting from Virginia for a couple of days and we arranged for their stay at Avera-Clarke in the cottage. They were very happy with the spacious and comfortable accommodations, the friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts, the lovely grounds, and the delicious breakfasts. If you are expecting overnight visitors and are unable to have them stay in your home, treat them to a stay at Avera-Clarke. You won't be sorry because Gretchen and Troy will make sure that your guests have everything they need for a pleasant stay.

I've stayed at the Avera Clarke B&B many times. It is one of my absolute favorite getaway spots in Florida. All around great experience. Beautiful grounds and obviously a lovely historical home.

My wife, family and I stayed 2 nights. We were in town to celebrate our niece's birthday party which happened to be on the grounds of the inn. We found Gretchen and Troy to be friendly and accommodating. Gretchen is a great hostess and surprised us with her gourmet cuisine. Troy was great also. The rooms were clean and in good condition and very comfortable. The grounds were perfect for a party and they made every accommodation to make it they way the party planner wanted. All in all a great place to stay or host an event at.

My wife and I stayed in the cottage the second weekend in September. This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast and we must say that this place is above and beyond any expectations I had. The cottage is the way to go, although we want ot stay in the main house on our next visit, well maybe not. Troy and Gretchen are wonderful people and they make some of the best breakfast I have had. Their hospitality is second to none and so is there B & B. If you have never stayed here, I highly recommend it. We will be back sooner than later. Thanks again Troy and Gretchen for a wonderful time. Gretchen went the extra mile for me. It was my wifes birthday on the night we arrived. She had picked up a cake and bottle of wine, and had it waiting in the refrigerator, with all untensils and cold wine glasses.

We brought our granddaughter to attend my high school reunion and Gretchen put us in the cottage ... it was wonderful !!! We look forward to staying with her anytime we're in the Tallahassee area. Oh and I forget to say how incredible is her cooking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My husband & I stayed one night to see Fiddler on the Roof at the nearby Opera house. Gretchen and Troy made us feel very welcome but gave us the privacy we needed. We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to come back to visit again. Gretchen's breakfast was wonderful!

The Avera-Clarke B&B provided a wonderful vacation setting. Troy helped with our bicycling maps and Gretchen always went above and beyond. Besides cooking beautiful breakfasts she made us coffee at night and fed us fresh fruit in the afternoon. The accomodations were just right and the house very peaceful.

I found it to be very clean and well maintained. I was disappointed with the fact that the fireplace in the room was not functioning. Everything else about my room was very nice. The breakfast was delicious. I am allergic to dogs and did not know there were dogs living in the house. This caused me some discomfort so I wish I had known this. Overall, the inn is a great choice. Gretchen and Troy were great hosts!
I am so sorry that I had a guest stay with us that was allergic to dogs. If that had been mentioned during the booking, I would have stated that yes, we do have dogs and our B&B is advertised as pet friendly. Our dogs are contained in our living area, but other guest might be staying with their pets and I could give out that information also.
