2017 Florida Gators Home GamesThe 2017 UF football season is just around the corner, so now is the time to reserve your lodging for the Florida Gators home games. Let Hampton Lake Bed & Breakfast serve as your Florida lakeside home away from home.

There’s nothing quite like the thrill of seeing Florida Gators home games and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is a great venue. University of Florida’s Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, or “The Swamp” as many affectionately call it, is Florida’s largest stadium. Visiting teams consider the state-of-the-art facility one of the toughest college football environments around. Visiting fans, on the other hand, soon discover that there is not a bad seat in the house!

The same could be said for our North Central Florida B&B, Hampton Lake Bed & Breakfast.

Our contemporary modified A-frame home sits on the shore of natural cypress lake surrounded by 60 acres of open field. Each of our seven rooms has an en suite bathroom and access to the more than 180 feet of waterfront we call home. Relax before or after the game with a swim or some fishing.
