My friend and I made a quick trip to Mt. Dora and needed to place to stay once we hit town. We called, and they had availability, so we headed to Heron Cay. The property is absolutely gorgeous on the outside. There are a few things that need maintenance, but the property and landscape is so gorgeous, we overlooked it.... More

My husband planned a trip to Mt. Dora to celebrate our wedding anniversary and when we pulled up to this B & B, I was thrilled about this Victorian charmer as we both wanted to stay there for quite some time. Margie greeted us at the door, showed us around the property and then escorted us to our beautiful, spacious... More

This was our first visit to Heron Cay. We were quite surprised at the beauty of the place. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and have booked another trip for our birthday. We saw many of the rooms, each one quite charming with it's own personality. It is very close to the town with many quaint shops and not far from... More

Stopped by to check this place out but did not stay here because the place is a dump! Other reviewers have correctly pointed out the mold, mildew, cobwebs, etc. The interior is supposed to be "quaint" but all it is is dirty and cluttered with enough junk to make it look like an indoor garage sale. Cats and dogs rule,... More

We have been coming to the Heron Cay since April of 2013. We went on a whim one weekend and have fallen in love with the place ever since! This was our 5th time in 13 months and every time has been exceptional. The B&B is located just a short walk from town and once you arrive, there is really... More

I was traveling by motorcycle around Florida on spring break and stopped in central Florida to visit friends. Since I was by myself, safety was of utmost importance to me. I spent two nights at Heron Cay and I felt like I was at home both nights. Margie and Randy have a beautiful place. The yard was beautiful. I spent... More

Orwellian Bed and Lunch. My wife surprised me with a wonderful weekend trip to Mount Dora for my BD. We love to travel and have been in a number of B&B's. Heron Cay looked great on the internet site and she agreed to pay the premium price. We were truly mortified by the experience. On arrival we were given the... More

We had the pleasure to stay at Heron Cay on 12/26 & 12/27 and will look forward to going back soon. This B&B came highly recommended by a friend and we were glad it did. Margie and Randy we're friendly hosts and the home was quaint and cozy. Be sure to check this place out when traveling to Mount Dora.... More

My husband and I stayed here recently for my birthday weekend in mid October … It could not have been lovelier! We choose the beautiful and charming corner room on the 2nd floor, with the comfortable 4 poster bed. Staying at this charming and hospitable bed and breakfast was a big part of what made this birthday weekend so special.This... More
