The Allison House Inn was built in 1843 and converted to an award winning bed and breakfast in 1990 is located in Quincy, FL, 20 miles west of Tallahassee, FL. Located in the center of a thirty-six square block historic district, the Inn is steeped in history. It was built by A.K. Allison, who in 1865, became Governor of the State of Florida and signed the peace treaty with the Union, thus ending Florida's role in the Civil War. Earlier, A.K. Allison distinguished himself in the Indian Wars. The Inn is within walking distance to the town square of Quincy, where there are numerous shops. The Inn is a gracious, Georgian double-parloured structure. All guestrooms have their own private baths, individual climate controls, remote controlled cable TV, and hair dryers. Mindful of an English country manor, the inn is filled with many antiques from the British Isles. The grounds and gardens of the Allison House Inn are lush with crepe myrtle, azaleas, camellias, bamboo, fig, pear, and pecan trees. The climate is very pleasant throughout the year. The area is noted for its art and antiques. Many notable artists live in the area, whose works now hang in premier galleries around the country. Numerous antique shops can be found nearby with wares from Europe, Asia, and Early America. Festivals and community celebrations abound throughout the year in the area.

Our stay occurred over the July 4th holiday and it turned out to be a quiet and welcomed respite. Our host was outstanding and the breakfast and fellowship with other quests was great. If you're seeking a quiet get away in the Florida panhandle, the Allison House Inn is a great choice.

I went to Quincy to pick up an airplane I'd bought and just needed a bunk for the night. I was beat after a long day of air travel. Although it was just me, a rather rugged looking traveling dude, I got the full B&B service! Stuart picked me up at the Quincy airport and set me up with the nicest room I've ever stayed in. Tea and sherry for a night cap. A great breakfast of whatever you want (I ate light-a few butterflys before a flight in a new plane). After all that, he dropped me off at the airport in the morning. All this service and treatment for $80!!!! My wife is very jealous and I've had to promise her a stay at the Allison House Inn! I'll gladly oblige her. I'm not one for frivality, but if you need a place to stay, the Allison House is the best there is. Stuart and Eileen, you're the best and I'll see you again!

Loved the Garden Room... pretty florals & antiques, was impressed w/the large room! And breakfast was delicious & delightful! Would definitely stay here again!

This B&B exceeded our expectations. The host shared the interesting history of the historic home and met all our needs, including help with an impromptu birthday celebration.
The focal point of this romantic room is the queen-size bed graced with a white lace canopy. The room is accented in floral tones of deep reds and forest greens. This room is one of the original parlors of Gov. A.K. Allison’s home and is appointed with stately furnishings of old world charm. It is the perfect place for a Honeymoon Night, Anniversary or any very Special Occasion. Full bath ensuite.
Flowers abound in every part of this charming room. Highlighted by the canopied old-fashioned white cast iron double bed, it is reminiscent of days gone by. This cozy room features one of the many beautiful armoires in the Inn from the British Isles. Three quarter bath ensuite.
The decor of the Wicker Room is a cottage design of blues and greens with a white bread-board wainscot. This first floor room has a queen bed and is decorated with wicker furniture, old fashioned quilts and country charm.A three - quarter bath ensuite.
