We stayed there a few months ago and loved it so much we are making plans to go back this July.

A hidden Gem.

8-16-2014 My husband and I stayed at the Hampton Lake B&B and found it to be in every aspect delightful. Rooms were comfortable, snacks were very nice with cold drinks and breakfast was good with a beautiful lake view. We would stay here again on our next trip to Hampton FL. (Starke)

Family weekend

A wonderful spot for our family reunion. The weather was gorgeous so we were out on the lake, the rooms (beds in particular) were very comfy, and the breakfasts were excellent. Paula is a warm and welcoming hostess. We all highly recommend this spot and hope to be back soon.

Absolutely Loved our visit

My wife and I, my brother and his wife, and my Mother all stayed at the Hampton Lake B&B over the 4th of July weekend to attend a family reunion in Lake Butler. What a wonderful time we had at the B&B. Paula is a fantastic host, her breakfast was outstanding. She kept plenty of homemade snacks on the Kitchen bar and plenty of beer and soda in the guest fridge. We were all very comfortable. The view over the lake is wonderful. If you are ever in the area, stay at Hampton Lake B&B. You will LOVE it. We will staying there again next year for our family reunion. Rick and Heidi

Perfect for small weddings!

I stayed here and attended a small wedding (70 people) that was outside by the lake. It was a lovely and relaxing setting! The grounds were beautiful, the rooms were cozy, the food was excellent. Paula, Kim and Lisa's hospitality helped make our weekend a special celebration that will be cherished forever. Thank you!!

Peaceful retreat!

Caring owner and staff, beautiful sunsets, and serene setting on the lake. Perfect place for kicking back and relaxing. Traveled for business, wished my husband were there to share the sunsets and wonderful breakfast. Southern hospitality and cooking.

Very satisfied!!

This was our third year staying at Hampton Lake B&B. Once again, the staff exceeded our expectations. We bring a group of about 25 and stay for 2 nights. We have them prepare all our meals. The food is very good. The two homes are very comfortable. Plenty of room for out group to all gather as one. Already looking forward to next year.

Great Place to stay

The atmosphere at this inn really make us feel at home with the added bonus of a charming, gracious hostess who invited us to grab a cup of coffee, sit at the long bar and watch her magic in the kitchen. The breakfasts were the best we have ever had in a B&B and we have sampled many. Hampton Lake is beautiful and the sunset view is spectacular from the pier.

My first B&B was great

This was my first B&B and I am not sure those to follow can match it. Thank you Ms. Paula for making me feel at home and safe.
