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

We stayed at the B&B for two nights and from the time we arrived to the time we left we had a wonderful experience. The house and room are very cozy and warm. We stayed at he canary room in the second floor with a lovely living/sitting area and kitchen. There is plenty of windows to look over the beautiful... 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

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
