Verified Reviews of Lodge at Gainesville

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Everything was fantastic!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Everything was fantastic! Everyone absolutely loved Cabot Lodge Gainesville (I think they now just go by "The Lodge at Gainesville"). We actually wound up using more rooms and more room nights than anticipated and they not only accommodated everyone, they picked everyone up at the airport and dropped them off without any difficulties at all whatsoever! I was extremely impressed especially because of the many flight delays we had. They even let a few of our local participants join the guests for the free happy hour! We definitely plan on using them again next year.
