Grand Gables Inn,
"PERHAPS THE MOST PALATIAL HOME IN ALL OF FLORIDA", PALATKA DAILY NEWS, 1884
Once described as 'perhaps the most palatial home in all of Florida', the magnificent Major Sherman Conant house is available to rent in its entirety. This 3 story, 8 bedroom, 6.5 bath home is a stunning example of Queen Anne architecture by famed New England architect Rufus Sargent. Although a full service BNB with individual rooms for rent nightly, the entire home is available for rent. When renting the Entire Inn, you have full use of the kitchen and other facilities. The INN does not offer breakfast or food service when renting the Entire Inn.
This home is one of a kind in many ways. Guests describe it as 'stunning', 'jaw-dropping' and beyond their expectations. It has a storied history and is filled with valuable antiques and artifacts. Although a fantastic home for your full use, it is not a place to hold parties. There are many items that could be damaged.
With twelve foot ceilings, a grand staircase and a sweeping veranda, you and your family/friends can luxuriate in rooms steeped in American history. One block to the St. Johns River, 30 minutes to St. Augustine and 45 minutes to Gainesville.
