This is our second stay at the Farnsworth House in lovely Mt. Dora. We stayed in the Azalea suite during the weekend after the July 4th holiday. This suite happens to include a screened in porch which I thoroughly took advantage of to curl up with a good book. The grounds are lovingly cared for and the house is away... More

After selling our getaway cottage in Mt. Dora almost a year ago, my wife and I were given a gift from our children of a 3-day, 2-night package at the Farnsworth House, knowing we hadn't been to one of our favorite spots in a while. We were unfamiliar with the property and couldn't have been more pleased with the entire... More

My husband and I have always preferred Bed & Breakfast inns to hotels, and the Farnsworth House in Mount Dora, FL., is one place that exemplifies the reason for our preference. Owner/operators Kim and Soren go to great lengths to make their guests comfortable and exceedingly well fed! Suites in the vintage house are gigantic. Because we were late making... More

We stayed in Mount Dora at Farnsworth B&B for seven days. We had a fantastic week, our daugther still talks about it. Kim and Sören are the best hosts one could think of, helping us with tips & activities in Mount Dora throughout the week and guiding us in choices. The Farnsworth house is beautifully furnished, elegant rooms and the... More

We stayed 2 nights at Farnsworth house and were treated more like family than guests. Kim and Soren couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. In the evenings we had the use of the living room and the whole downstairs. The Bamboo Suite was just what we needed and was very comfortable. They went out of their way to provide... More

Stayed for a 2 night weekend over Memorial Day and had a very nice time. The owners, Kim and Simon, are delightful and very accommodating. It is not the type of B&B where you walk in and find a large living room, lots of books, etc. etc. but the suite we had was just fine. It is somewhat within walking... More

The Farnsworth House is a beautifully restored 125 year-old home located in a quiet residential neighborhood less than a mile away from historic downtown Mt Dora. You will be hard-pressed to find nicer and more accommodating innkeepers than the owners, Kim and Soren. Running a B and B is hard work but for them it is clearly a labor of... More

This wonderful historic house is a gem of a B&B in Mount Dora - close to downtown activities, yet a private oasis for relaxing in the gazebo or numerous sitting areas amongst lush landscaping. The rooms are meticulously clean and decorated according to theme - we prefer the Golf Room in the Carriage House with its tiny, yet functional kitchen... More

We found this place by chance. We did not expect to spend the night in Mount Dora and most places were fully booked due to the Blues Festival. As we were heading home the owner of Farnsworth came to our car and invited us in. It was the best decision we could have made. The place is extremly clean, roomy... More

Lovely people who run this place but the rooms -as usual with B and Bs- have a lot of bric-a-brac, the bathroom was tiny and the fixtures are old and basic. It's fine for a night or two but don't expect contemporary or upscale.
