Hidden Gem!

5 on November 08, 2016

What a treasure hidden away in Quincy, Florida! We loved everything about the McFarlin House and will definitely stay there again if we get down that way. Beautiful interior, finely detailed and the host couldn't be nicer.

My husband and I needed a break and always go away for our anniversary. This year he didn't want to go on a long trip and we had some local obligations, soo we stayed near hime. The McFarlin House in Quincy was the perfect answer. It was quite, beautiful and full of history. The owner made us feel at home and made our stay relaxing and pleasant. He went above and beyond to make us comfortable and was full of interesting facts. We would highly recommended it and would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful home!

We stayed in the 3rd floor room, Sunny's Charm and it was exactly that, charming. The house is gorgeous. The dining room is huge and the wood on the walls is stunning. The wrap around porch is the perfect place to sip some tea, enjoy the birds and squirrels and just unwind. We loved this bed and breakfast and it was by far the nicest one I've ever stayed in. Loved it.

This is your place to stay

We were looking for a place outside of Tallahassee for parents weekend at FSU and wow did we get lucky. Beautiful location, wonderful room, great food, awesome people we really enjoyed our stay. I would recommend you avoid the madness of Tallahassee and stay here, only 25 minutes to the campus. Trust me this place is special!

Wonderful stay at McFarlin House

We came to Quincy for a water ski tournament and decided on a B&B instead of a regular hotel. We have stayed at many B&B's and the McFarlin House surpassed them all! Richard and Tina are lovely and the breakfast was awesome. The rooms are absolutely beautiful! We will be back!

Great B&B in Quincy Fl

4.8 on July 06, 2016

Stayed over the 4th of July weekend. This was our 4th or 5th stay with Richard and Tina. Richard makes the best breakfast every morning. Very charming old house. Clean rooms and free wifi. Will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Ready to return!

One of my favorite Bed & Breakfast Inns ever! Richard & Tina have created a fabulous retreat in this gorgeous old mansion. You feel so welcome and all comforts are generously provided. I think they have thought of just about everything to make a guest delighted to stay. I loved staying in the sports room with all of the baseball memorabilia. Richard is a good cook and spirited story teller, so now I'm looking for an excuse to go sure is fun.

Great Mother Daughter Outing!

4.8 on January 27, 2016

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Richard and Tina. It was a very cold weekend and when we arrived our room was nice and toasty. We watched movies explored the house and had the most wonderful breakfast. I would definitely recommend the McFarlin House to anyone wanting to get away for a much needed rest. Thank you, Richard and Tina.

Wonderful stay!

Our room was beautiful and comfortable. We were fortunate to see the house decorated for Christmas. It was just beautiful! We had a delicious breakfast and we highly recommend staying here if you are passing through Quincy.

I always wanted to live in a Victorian type house.

Beautiful surroundings, good friends and food

A very good, but not great, experience

3.2 on July 31, 2015

My wife wanted something special to experience our 2nd anniversary. I also wanted to get away from the city. The result was a three day and two night trip to the northwest of Tallahassee, FL. It had been a long time since I stayed at a B&B, remembering that there were no TVs, phones, laundries, elevators, etc; but given that we now have cell phones, I gave it a try. What I found was atypically friendly hosts, but still the old house with creaky wooden floors, no counter space in the bathroom, too few electrical outlets, old shower equipment, very DARK rooms, and a very HOT room that we stayed in. Others there complained of being too cold, so we got the hottest room in the house. I cut my foot tripping twice on the black rocking chair between the bed and bathroom, due to the very dark room, with lighting too faint to light them well. The bathtub was unusual, leaking water out as you try to bathe. Yet this was the only B&B I have ever visited that offered a supper. And they allowed you to schedule the time up until 7 pm. I even called from a state park saying that I would be late, and they held supper for us. And the supper was huge and excellent. The breakfasts likewise were excellent. So, it was everything that people usually want from a B&B, including an old historical house with period furnishings. Lots of history for that small town northwest of Tallahassee. I guess you need to come with the appropriate B&B mentality. I had not been to one in years, feeling the strangeness of stepping back in time, like stepping into a Charles Dickens "Great Expectations" movie. There are many parks an hour away along the Gulf coast, but the many small towns that surround Tallahassee are pretty depressing. Maybe you would enjoy shopping for "antiques" in stores around the area, but it just seemed run down to me. I far prefer the area along the Gulf coast that we visited.

Lovely and Comfortable!

After many hours of driving on a dark, rainy, cold night...what a joy to see McFarlin House all lit up and waiting for us. A lovely and comfortable home! Breakfast was yummy!

30th anniversary

4.6 on August 20, 2014

Liked it so much that we stayed an extra night!! breakfasts were soooo good!! and I loved how the room was kept clean without even bothering us!! We'll be back!

Great Host

4.6 on May 20, 2014

very quiet and the host was great

The McFarlin House is a great place to stay.

4.6 on October 27, 2013

This was our 3rd stay. We always enjoy looking around and the breakfast is great.

Charming house and inn keepers

4.6 on October 22, 2013

Richard was there to greet us when we arrived at 10:30 pm, having been delayed. We opted for late breakfast the next morning and it was served at large dining room table with china, crystal and silver. Lovely setting with poinsettia placemats under the glass protecting the huge table, which would seat 12. Two other small tables seating four are in the more than spacious dining room. Antiques and parts of the owners collections of china, crystal and silver fill the other common and bedrooms. We stayed in the ground floor sports memorabilia room, devoted to old time baseball - not my thing, but comfortable and interesting. Enjoyed reading about the house in the book in the room. Will visit again when we go to Tallahassee. Beats a cookie cutter hotel any day.

Pleasant surprise

5 on October 18, 2013

We had to travel from Tampa to Alabama for a wedding and I had asked my husband to find a bed & breakfast not wanting to travel all day. He stumbled on the McFarlin House. We stayed again on our return trip and immensely enjoyed and appreciated the peaceful and richly decorated environment. The mansion is filled with antiques and nothing seems to be left to coincidence, but everything chosen with care and attention. Richard's breakfast was delicious and sinful for people who watch their waistline. Having family in Tallahassee, we plan to return for a future happy stay and highly recommend McFarlin House for a break from the ordinary.

A lovely stay

5 on September 29, 2013

We only stayed one night, but we will be back for more. Richard and Tina were gracious and accommodating, and the Gentlemen's Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was wonderful as well. I was not able to eat the waffles Richard prepared (although my husband said they were delicious), so he graciously prepared some toast (my request) and, of course, there was plenty of fruit. Can't wait for our next visit.

Wonderful weekend!

Our expectations were exceeded with the accommodations and services offered at this B&B. The breakfasts were outstanding and the rooms clean and well-furnished. We felt welcomed and appreciated in a warm and friendly environment.

Best Weekend for some Romance

5 on September 12, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and it was beautiful. We got a nice romantic meal, 2 great breakfasts, lots of great talks with the owners, and a very relaxing time. The owners are very nice and make you feel at home.

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

5 on August 06, 2013

Owners very helpful and willing to do anything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We really enjoyed the house and bedroom which was the gentlemen's quarter's. Bed was very comfortable and nice bathroom. Had the opportunity to check the other rooms and would recommend any of them. Breakfast was excellent. Owners are flexible with the serving times which was nice.

What a wonderful stay at McFarlin House!

5 on August 06, 2013

We chose McFarlin House for a two night's stay for my daughter's graduation (Ph.D.) at FSU. We all felt right at home in McFarlin House. The place is 11,000 square feet of nostalgia, and packed full with antiques We all enjoyed being a part of this environment (exploring was so much fun), and the neighborhood with its large 1890ish homes and oak trees with hanging moss, was so peaceful and serene. Most of all, we enjoyed sitting on the huge wrap around porch drinking up the serenity of the place. Richard and Tina were wonderful innkeepers, and very comfortable and nice to be around. The breakfasts were wonderful in the beautiful dinning room, and Richard was very flexible as to the timing of them. I would definitely recommend a stay at McFarlin House, so much so that my family plans on returning there in the near future.

Surprisingly delightful B&B

3.4 on June 24, 2013

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day stay at this lovely B&B tucked away in a quiet community just a short drive from the Tallahassee capital area. The host was most gracious, knowledgeable and happy to converse. We would definitely stay here again when we next visit the area.

Awesome B&B

4.4 on June 19, 2013

Our family traveled from all over the US for our nieces wedding and we all stayed at McFarlin House. Great service, great food, great decor, and great antiques. Richard and Tina were so accommodating . Quincy does not have much to offer at all but 9 miles away is a small town full of shops, restaurants and antiques. We definitely would stay again.

Best in the South

My Wife, Son and I just spent the 2012 FSU Parent's Weekend at the McFarlin House and what a wonderful experience. This was our first stay and it most certainly will not be our last...even after our son graduates FSU. Richard and Tina and their family have done a marvelous job of not only restoring this grand old House they have made it come alive again. Richard makes you feel at home immediately with his engaging personality. He also makes a mean breakfast out his awesome Kitchen..ask to take a peek it's a treat. Richard and Tina are truly amazing people to do what they do and they run the best B&B we have stayed in to date. We cannot wait to do it all again.

Our stay at the McFarlin House

We've stayed at the McFarlin House many times. Outstanding every time. It's our favorite place in the Tallahassee area.

Great stay

Nice place. Real hospitable; good food; and flexible when we needed it. Thanks

Great Stay

5 on July 28, 2012

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the McFarlin House. The first floor Gentleman's Quarters Room was very nice and entertaining. I am a baseball fan and the room was filled with baseball paraphernalia. The second floor galley was an unexpected plus. We had a long travel day and the cold cherry coke hit the spot. The breakfast that Richard prepared was delicious. Staying at the McFarlin House was a plus in our trip. I would highly recommend a stay there.

Much Better Than The Chain Hotels

4.4 on June 05, 2012

We stopped at McFarlin House while traveling back home. The property is oustanding and very peaceful. Just wish there were better restaurants in town.

Wonderful B&B

4.8 on May 08, 2012

My husband and I had a fabulous stay at the McFarlin House B & B. The atmosphere was very relaxing and inviting, the staff was very friendly and warming and the food was to delicious! We highly recommend staying at the McFarlin House! Thank you to Richard and Tina for the excellent hospitality, we will be back very soon.

A Great Stay

5 on May 01, 2012

Last weekend was our second stay at McFarlin House B&B. Both times we stayed there when an event at FSU in Tallahassee filled up the hotels in Tallahassee (at very high prices). While we didn't really want to stay in Quincy because all we were doing was in Tally, once we got there we enjoyed the choice we made. The town and McFarlin house are very unique. The room was clean and quiet and the bed very comfortable. We loved the little touches like bottled water and snacks for the taking on little kitchen off the second floor. Breakfasts were amazing and the only challenge was not to eat so much of the great food being offered. The second morning we had sort of a baked peach french toast and country good. We would like to go again just to hang out and explore quincy and maybe try out the hot tub with a glass of wine or two. All good!

No other word or rating but OUTSTANDING!!

5 on April 10, 2012

Not only is the home absolutely gorgeous, but the service was wonderful! I can't remember the last time I felt so special and pampered. The breakfast each morning was delicious and it was so nice getting to know others as we shared a meal together. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I'm in the area. Thank you again for the wonderful hospitality!

A great place to stay!

4.8 on November 15, 2011

I have been to McFarlin House six times now and can't wait to go back! It is so clean and elegant. Richard and Tina are great hosts and you won't leave the table hungry after eating one of their breakfasts! I have stayed in almost all of their rooms and never had a bad experience in any of them.

Furnished as if it was 1895

5 on November 03, 2011

Wonderful decor. The whole house and every room is furnished in they style of late 1800's which is amazing considering it was abandoned for 27 years before Richard and Tina bought it in 1993. Our Louise's Loft on the third floor was wonderful. Richard was very informative about the Quincy area. Breakfast was top notch. We did make use of the microwave and fridge that was available for guest use.

A wonderfully charming surprise

4.6 on September 22, 2011

Clean, friendly, and very comfortable accommodations. Our host cooked a fabulous breakfast for us. This is a real find.

Great as usual!!

Rick and Tina are very special inn keepers.

Most Elegant B&B

4.6 on February 28, 2011

We have stayed in several B&Bs on a few different states. We stayed at McFarlin House for our 18th anniversary and Richard and Tina provided a great atmosphere for our special weekend. They are a friendly couple and they truly love their house and the ability to provide the services that they provide. We highly recommend this lovely home for a romantic getaway.

WONDERFUL little gem!!!

5 on February 21, 2011

My better half booked us one night for my bday (we're from nearby Tallahassee) and it was WONDERFUL. Got away from kids, work, etc and just relaxed and folks, it was BEAUTIFUL. Richard, the innkeeper, was awesome-- so talkative, funny, helpful -- and a GREAT cook! :) We've stayed at much more expensive B&Bs-- you can't beat this one though!!! Everything was so pristine and clean and working!!! It was amazing! We'll be back... soon!

This was OUR house for one night! Woo-hoo!

4.6 on January 12, 2011

Hosts were young and interesting, relaxed, casual and amiable. Once you're in, they will show you around and tell you about the place, the history. Wow - it's a livable museum. Then they give you some keys, and unless you need them, they go about their own busy lives in their quarters and the place is yours to enjoy like it's your own mansion and no amount of money necessarily buys you that experience, which was an unanticipated pleasure for us.

Enjoyed our stay

4.4 on November 02, 2010

What a wonderful experience. Our stay at the McFarlin House felt like being at home. Loved our first visit so much that we came back for a second time, and received the same welcome. Richard & Tina are the best. Richard has plenty of enjoyable conversation and lots of humorous jokes to share. Thank You.

We had a nice relaxing stay. Everything was awesome. Richard was excellent! Unfortunately we didn't meet Tina. My wife and I are both coffee drinkers. Richard had a fresh caraffe of coffee waiting every morning for us on the counter in the upstairs guest kitchen. The refrigerator was always stocked with several type soda's, bottle water and coffee creamer. The room we stayed in was Sunny's Charm. It was like a secret hidaway that was peaceful and secluded. We loved it! Breakfast's were excellent! Plenty of conversation with Richard and other guests added to the fun. Thank you for a memorable stay!

Memorable Stay

The house is great! I stayed there with my husband on our wedding night- great food, great service-everything was perfect! Location, house, and grounds are gorgeous!

Football Weekend in Quincy, FL

4.8 on October 31, 2008

My wife and I were lucky to book a room at the McFarlin House in Quincy over a recent Florida State Football weekend. Most of the guests were parents of students at FSU. Some of the guests had come back to the McFarlin House for the past ten years. Why not? Very reasonable rates, clean rooms and nice soft comfortable beds and a great wakeup breakfast cooked by Richard and Tina. If you are even close to Quincy you should stay at this extremely nice bed and breakfast. Great innkeepers too !! Try the Mockingbird Cafe in Havana for dinner and entertainment.

Beautiful house

4.6 on April 20, 2007

Very nicely decorated - gourmet kitchen and cooks - the house is very cozy despite of its size - our favorite place: the wrap-around front porch. We will get back when in Northern Florida
