We want to thank Kim and Soen for making our stay at Farnsworth so comfortable, Our room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were outstanding. The Farnsworth House is on a beautiful piece of property. Mt Dora offers great shopping and an essence of stepping back in time.

My friend and I stayed at the Farnsworth House for a girls getaway weekend. I cannot say enough about the service! Soren and Kim were the most gracious and accommodating hosts anyone could ask for. The house and grounds were beautiful and peaceful. We stayed in the Bamboo Room and found everything clean, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. Kim was very... More

My husband and I stayed in the "Cottage" Room. We had gone up for a weekend get-a-way. This Bed & Breakfast was built in the 1800's, so the history appealed to us. The room was extremely clean and felt welcoming with a king size bed and pretty quilt. It had two private entrances, a small kitchen (sink, refrigerator, & microwave,... More

This B & B was splendid! Very clean and neat. The staff was well organized and friendly. Only fault I could find was the distance to "downtown" Mt Dora. To walk you must cross a major intersection and pass gas station and a bar. If I was without my husband, I would not walk to downtown . Otherwise.... This place... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to a few days away after the holidays this past December. After reading reviews and checking availability, we decided to stay for two nights at the Farnsworth House B and B in Mt. Dora, Fl. We were not disappointed. We booked the Canary Room, an upstairs room. The room was pleasantly and brightly decorated,... More

My wife and I had never been to Mt. Dora, so when we were looking for a place to stay, we relied entirely on Trip Advisor. We prefer B and Bs to hotels generally, because the atmosphere is more personal.Any time I see all 5s, I get a little skeptical, but in this case, they are justified. Kim and Soren... More

We stayed at the Farnsworth House B&B for a couple of nights and enjoyed every minute. Upon arrival, Kim upgraded us to the Glyn and Kiddie Suite which was very charming with a kitchen and living area. The overall appearance of the place is excellent and very, very clean. The breakfasts were delicious and the innkeepers are very sweet people... More

Happy that Kim and Soren had a room for me at the last minute. Their historic Bed & Breakfast is in an ideal location. They are very gracious and I was most pleased to dicover some new places in Mt Dora, including the Modernism museum, thanks to Kim's recommendation, and see the Christmas lights at the marina. Hope to make... More
