The Shady Lady Bed & Breakfast 

The Shady Lady is a small boutique hotel located in the lovingly restored historic Grand Central Saloon building on Gainesville’s historic downtown square. In the late 1880s, the downstairs was the nicest and most “respectable” saloon in town, but the upstairs boasted the real entertainment – the “soiled dove's” establishment purportedly run by the Madame named Sarah. 

Guests enter through their private entrance and walk up the stairs to the Gathering Place with comfortable seating overlooking the Gainesville Courthouse, complete with refrigerator and microwave for personal enjoyment – perfect for groups enjoying their wine after a visit to one of our local wineries. Each of the four guest rooms has a unique theme with a nod to the town’s colorful past, each with a private, luxurious bath. All rooms have flat screen televisions, complimentary WiFi access, and most have fireplaces. 

The Shady Lady is atop Sarah’s on the Square, a favorite restaurant of locals and travelers alike with a menu known for its delicious home cooking and fabulous desserts. Guests enjoy a wonderful breakfast with their room stay.
