The Laurel Oak Inn

221 SE 7th St
Gainesville, FL 32601


The Laurel Oak Inn is a beautifully restored 1885 Queen Anne Victorian located in the heart of the Historic Bed and Breakfast District in Gainesville, Florida.  We are known for providing southern hospitality with an east coast flair.  As guests of the Laurel Oak Inn we hope you receive a warm welcome and enjoy the comforts of our home.

Each guest room tells a unique story about the innkeepers, inspired by some of their favorite memories.  Every detail has been intricately woven through our rooms, designed specifically with our guests in mind. Our rooms provide an intimate and quiet setting, to include private bathrooms, for your privacy and convenience.

We serve a wonderfully prepared breakfast every morning from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM and gladly provide accommodations tailored to meet the needs of corporate and business travelers. Breakfast during the work-week can be accommodated as early as 7AM or continental breakfast choices available with advance notice.

Our antique beverage bar offers hot coffee and tea throughout the day and the guest refrigerator is always filled with complimentary beverages to be enjoyed by all.  If you happen to have a sweet tooth during your stay, you will find fresh baked cookies in the dining room.

The Inn offers a sitting room off the kitchen, which is a great place to socialize with other guests and often times the Innkeepers.  In the sitting room, we have a smart television for the sports enthusiast or the news junkie.

If you delight in the sounds of a streaming fountain or birds chirping don’t miss out on an opportunity to sit on one of our porches. You will not regret the beauty of your surroundings.

When you arrive at The Inn you will find we have two entrances, the front door, and the side door.  If you are a first-time guest we prefer you come to the front door to check-in so we can properly greet you and show you around our home.  If you are a returning guest the side entrance is most fitting.

We look forward to meeting you at the Laurel Oak Inn. If there is anything we can do as a part of making memories and creating experiences during your stay please let us know.  It is our pleasure serving you.
