This peaceful, plant-filled room has a private bath with standing shower, private entrace access to screened back porch. The room is a modern addition to 1890 home with double bed and pull out couch. We are located in Gainesville's historic Duckpond neighborhood and love it. Its only a 10 minute walk to downtown restaurants and night life, or the historic Thomas Center and the playground at Roper Park. UF campus and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium are a short 2 miles away.
