I just returned from a 3 week bicycle ride which took me from NJ to Cape Coral, Fl. Along the way I stayed at mainly hotels. In a pinch they work...no need to say more. However, I also stayed at 3 bed & breakfasts and they are far and away the better choice if you are fortunate to have one along your route. Palms & Roses in Summerfield, Fl was absolutely a treat. The property is as beautiful as it is secluded. If you are just looking to get out of a cramped, cold, barren, hotel room then any B&B would probably work, but Palms & Roses offers so much more. Innkeepers Jenny & Don were not simply hosts or proprietors...meeting them was more like coming home to your family. By the time I arrived at Palms & Roses I was more than a little road weary and was still facing many more difficult miles. My stay with Jenny & Don was just what I needed to get recharged both physically and mentally. Between sitting on the porch talking with Don, and enjoying Jenny's enormous and delicious breakfast I had exactly what I needed to finish pedaling down to SW Florida. I don't know how you can beat the value Jenny & Don offer here when they give you all this at the cost of a hotel room. I can't wait to go back...next time in a car.

Our whole family enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at Palms and Roses. Don and Jenny are so gracious and welcoming - It was truly home away from home. Our boys really enjoyed the gorgeous grounds, playing with the dogs and cat, and feeding the cows! Breakfast by the pool was a treat before heading to the bike trails of Ocala or canoeing in the Rainbow River.. We are looking forward to our next visit! The Lorente Family, Melbourne FL

My wife and I enjoyed our stay and the Palms and Roses. We and friends stayed here while enjoying the Leesburg Bike Fest this year. Don and Jen are VERY hospitable host. Pam and I enjoyed our conversations with them while relaxing at our poolside breakfast. A very safe, peaceful, and secluded area that will see us back again in the future - maybe next years bike fest. Harold and Pam

A lovely,relaxing.country atmoshere, with Very Charming people running it, who helped us feel very at home. We found the location suited us well, as it was easy to drive around the area on the motorcycle, to sightsee. Also felt safe leaving motorcycle trailer, or motorcycle, if we took pickup to sightsee. Host & Hostess gave us many good ideas of places to go, with good directions or maps if needed. GREAT BREAKFASTS!! Thanks again, would love to come back soon!! IOWA BIKERS

Palms and Roses has a secluded and tranquil location providing above average accomodation, good service and most friendly and helpful hosts. No better a place to stay when away from home and nothing is too much to make your stay enjoyable.

My husband and I spent two (not long enough) days at Palms and Roses on a recent road trip from Maine to Florida. We found the Kehl's home to be so inviting, clean, comfortable and just perfect. Breakfast by the pool was a treat, as was a super comfortable room. Jen & Don are so friendly and helpful, we'll be back!

We have stayed at many B & B's, and this one ranks at the top. It's clean, beautiful, and quiet, and we were welcomed as family. We ate delicious breakfasts on the lanai each morning with Jen ready to be our concierge in helping plan our day.We had many interesting conversations with she and Don and hope to return.

My wife and I were looking for a peaceful retreat from the BUSYness of life and found rest at Palms & Roses. My wife lived in England for a few years and loved the conversations with Jenni. She and Don are wonderful and gracious hosts. The covered pool is delightful, the room was very clean and the shower was huge! If you are traveling in Central Florida and want to escape to some serenity (and eat an awesome British breakfast), you've found the BEST B&B. Tom & Melissa, Colorado

My husband David and I spent a week with Don and Jenny and had a wonderful vacation - the accomodations are clean and beautiful. Summerfield is an easy drive to the beach and the airport too so it is very convenient. We will definitely stay at Palms and Roses again!

We had a wonderful time with Jen & Don in their beautiful home. It far exceeded our expectations - and what a lovely spot! We cannot recommend Palms & Roses highly enough.

We stayed for a few days with Jan & Don and wish we could have stayed longer. Their home was beautiful and they were very friendly and helpful. It was like a home away from home! We'll be back!

We were so graciously welcomed even though we had arrived 2 days prior to our expected date. This place is absolutely beautiful., comfortable and exceptionally clean. Jen and Don took us under their wings. Each morning, along with a wonderful breakfast to get us started, Jen would have the printed forecast for the day, as well as info regarding different tourist attractions in the area. We enjoyed every minute of our 9 day stay, so much so, we hope to go back for another stay with our new friends, and we hope in Jen and Don's travels they'll come see us.
