Very family friendly!
We love Sweetwater Branch Inn! We travel 4 hours for monthly admissions for my 5 year old and stay here the night before each month. They are super family friendly and it is SO COMFORTABLE here for my kiddo while still enjoying the bed and breakfast experience for me! I looked into other Bed and breakfasts but they just weren't kid friendly. We get a cottage which gives him room to play and makes me worry less about him being loud and makes him feel more at home. I get to still enjoy wine and cheese hour, a gourmet breakfast and a nice, clean, safe atmosphere. It definitely makes the monthly trip for an unpleasant hospital stay more bearable.

A very sweet & comfy place to stay
I love the place. It ws so sweet and comfortable. I was there for a surgery at Shands the next morning so we had t oleave real early abnd were going to miss out on the complimentary breakfast. As we were leaving we met the owner, Carnelia, who was getting breakfast ready. She had fresh baked blueberry french toast casserole and home made granola, among other things and the coffee smelled heavenly. I loved the dishes she had set out for her guests. when she heard we were leaving early, she insisted we take some breakfast with us so we could eat later. She said she wished wwe had told the person who checked us in that we would be leaving early and she would have prepared a special early breakfast for us. Iwould love to go back when I had more time to spend.
