Are you tired of the traffic–filled, fast-paced life of your current world, and ready to “live your dream” while still running a rewarding business, meeting interesting people and living in a beautiful early 1900’s Arts and Crafts home? High Springs is that laid-back north–Florida town surrounded by natural wonders and the Grady House Bed & Breakfast is that “dream”.
In George Rush’s 4/10/15 Wall Street Journal article, he visits several of the springs throughout Florida and aptly calls High Springs the “epicenter of cave exploration” with a recommendation for a stay at the Grady House B&B. The area is blessed with beautiful fresh water springs, rivers and parks which annually attract thousands of visitors from all over the world. Frequented by cave divers (including Jacque Cousteau), hikers, bird enthusiasts, manatee lovers, cyclists, kayakers, canoeists and folks from all-over who just love a day or weekend in a relaxing “Old Florida” quaint historic town.

The main building offers 5 luxurious guest suites/rooms in what once was a boarding house for railroad supervisors in the early 1900’s. Located on the same property is The Easterlin House, or Skeet’s Cottage, a separate 2 bedroom Victorian house next door which was built in 1896. Only a short drive to Gainesville and the University of Florida, and within a 2 hour drive all of north and central Florida’s major cities, High Springs is a delightful town in which to reside while still being close to Florida’s and south Georgia’s big cities. With 2/3 of an acre of gardens, ponds and sitting areas and two gourmet restaurants a short walk from the inn, guests find themselves relaxing at the inn for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives.
One of only a few properties that provides 2 bedrooms (or 1 bedroom and office), 2 baths, dining room, living room and a large foyer for the owners’ quarters, it is the perfect business and lifestyle for a small family or a couple needing a private office for a second business! The Grady House B&B is offered “turn-key” – complete with furnishings and ready to open for guests the day you take over!
