My husband and I recently stayed at the Farnsworth House in Mount Dora with another couple. Kim and Soren are fantastic hosts and very warm and welcoming; we really felt at home here. The home and landscape are beautiful and relaxing. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Snacks are left in the rooms along with bottled water. Kim provides... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Farnsworth House in Mount Dora.. What a treat! Kim and Soren were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were delicious, relaxing and refreshing. We loved filling out our requests the night before and seeing them perfectly executed the morning after. The snacks left in the rooms were a nice treat as well. The property... More

My husband and I are celebrating our 50th anniversary this year and started it out by going to Mt. Dora. We stayed at the Farnsworth House one night in April. It was just the best get-away ever! The hosts, Soren and Kim were so gracious and made us feel at home the minute we drove in the driveway. Soren was... More

We stayed for one night in February. Farnsworth house is just a 10-minute stroll to the lake and downtown of lovely Mt. Dora. The home was spotless, and the hosts were amazing. No one could have tried harder to make our stay better. The room had a basket of snacks and water, a closet with robes and slippers, toiletries tied... More

We had a wonderful three night stay in February. The accommodation is spotless, comfortable and quite charming. The owners, Kim and Soren, went out of their way to attend to all our needs - they were friendly, courteous and thoughtful. Excellent breakfasts, perfect location (Mount Dora is a little gem of a place) made it a thoroughly pleasant experience.

After a week at Farnsworth House, we were sad to return to the midwest. (Of course, FL weather compared to the midwest winter of 2014 was part of our reluctance to leave.) But beyond that, the hospitality, the comfortable accommodations, and custom breakfasts made us feel very special. We loved our second floor suite with the screened in porch off... More

We just spent a night at the Farnsworth House in Mt. Dora, FL. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious thanks to the very friendly and helpful innkeepers, Kim and Soren.

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor I called 3 B & Bs in Mt. Dora. Kim was the only one that answered the phone and was very helpful. I had looked at the rooms on line and decided on the carriage house. Kim was very accommodating and I looked forward to meeting her. Very easy to find, right turn off... More

Our visit to Mt. Dora for the art festival and a sailing regatta in Eustis this past weekend couldn't have been better. It turned out that the highlight of our trip was staying at the Farnsworth House. Our large suite on the second floor was a complete surprise with it's open, airy, clean and bright rooms. Kim and Sarin, the... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, decided to spend the weekend in Mt. Dora. The couple that traveled with us had been in Mt. Dora to ring in the New Year and wanted to go right back. I suggested staying in a B&B instead of the Lakeside Inn, which they stayed at for New Year's. I found Farnsworth... More
