Loved our stay with Soren and Kim. They are warm and attentive hosts. Our room was well appointed with lovely linens and towels and a bonus of a basket of snacks and cold drinks in the fridge. Breakfast was made to order including great coffee juices and delicious fruit bowls. The service provided by both was top notch. We would... More

I was looking for a place that my mother and I could stay while we visited my brother. I hoped that the Farnsworth House reviews were accurate and our stay would be half as good as the reviews made it sound. It was even more amazing! Kim and Soren were wonderful hosts and ensured we had everything we needed (and... More

Did I mention this place was CLEAN??! -and quiet and cozy. White towels, white sheets and lots of comfy pillows. The owners were very kind and informative and Kim was an absolute doll even though we arrived earlier than check-in. The only downfall is my husband is a meat and potatoes kind a guy and breakfast fell short of meat... More

We visited Mount Dora as a weekend get-away for mother, daughter and granddaughter. The Bamboo room was the perfect lay out for us. The room slept three and was on the ground floor for easy access. We had a relaxing time on the porch and taking a stroll around the property. Even had a chance to play the piano in... More

Soren and Kim are very excellent bed and breakfast hosts. Attentive, but non-fussy, good conversation, good healthy home cooked breakfasts and comfortable clean rooms. Close enough to town, a walkable 7 blocks. Splendid home cooked meals at restaurant just yards away and around the corner, The Antique Mall. What more do you need?! We definitely will be returning.

From the moment we pulled into the long winding driveway everything slowed down for us ! The beautiful property and the welcoming inn keepers set the tone for a wonderful get away . Just a few blocks from downtown Mount Dora , Farnsworth House was an excellent choice ! The inn is immaculate and the inn keepers went out of... More

Very close to Mt. Dora businesses, but out away from noise and traffic, this B & B has a beautiful park-like yard. Enjoy the beautiful gardens, trees, and patio. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, cozy, and pristine. The rooms are each special, and ours included a kitchen, and access to a screened in porch. We were TOTALLY comfortable. Then,... More

We stayed at the Farnsworth Inn for the past two nights and it was terrific! Breakfast was a highlight. All details of the inn are charming from the breakfast room to the food presentation to the grounds. Kim and Soren are the inn keepers and they are friendly and informative! Kim was able to accommodate breakfast for a gluten free... More

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
