We came for the Spring Craft Fair and loved the fact that it was only a couple blocks from historic downtown Mt. Dora and the annual Craft Fair! There was also a sailing regatta on the lake! The Inn has a great location, since there is a lot of traffic for the fair, and there's just a few close places... More

My daughter and I have been traveling every year to attend the annual Mt Dora Arts & Crafts Fair...this is our third year at Magnolia Inn. The location of the Inn is perfect to downtown Mt. Dora.

Returning from lat year, staying in the carriage house was amazing. The breakfast was really good, it filled me up, after that I wasn't hungry for the rest of the day. Lucy, the innkeeper was very sweet and helped me, when I needed it. The carriage house is really big, and has beautiful furniture. We got to visit downtown mount... More

I booked one night based on TripAdvisor reviews. When we drove into the property we couldn't believe the condition of the grounds - overgrown weeds and dried-up lawns. Lucy, mother of the owner operates the Inn with the help of her granddaughter. Our room was fine, but don't look behind the lace curtains and blinds-dust bunny heaven. For $200 a... More

The house is big with many areas to sit and visit with friends. Coffee and tea avaliable from 7:30 am till late evening. The house and rooms were very clean. The only thing I would suggest is a little more variety for breakfast. The house is close to town so it's a nice walk to the shops and restaurants. No... More

This was our second time staying at the Magnolia Inn. The home is beautifully decorated and the breakfasts are delicious. Lucy is a wonderful, caring, hospitable housekeeper who will do anything to make your stay perfect! We highly recommend the Magnolia Inn for a special get-away. Thanks, Lucy, for making our stay in Mount Dora extra special!

Six life-long friends decided to do something a little different to celebrate our fifty years of close friendship. We chose the Magnolia Inn B&B in Mt. Dora as the venue for our reunion of games, conversation, and reminiscing. The facilities, both indoors and outdoors, were perfect for the occasion. Lucy, the manager, was especially helpful in assuring us a good... More

Stayed here as a part of our anniversary weekend for one night (a bit unusual for a B&B, but they accommodated us well). Lucy was very nice and inviting, a bit of a language barrier, but she was very helpful with choosing a dinner spot and also gave us the option to upgrade to the carriage house room. We were... More
