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.

Great Weekend

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.

Best Kept Secret in the Panhandle!!

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.

Great Stay!

Gretchen is the perfect hostess

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.
