About Pat McCants

Tom and Pat were high school sweethearts, and have been married for 42 years,they have three grown sons and five grandsons.

They lived in South Florida most of their lives until moving to Gainesville in 2006. In 2006 they purchased two Victorian mansions and renovated one of them and opened the Camellia Rose Inn Bed and Breakfast in 2007, the other Victorian is the Hodges House where this apartment is located.
