We went when no events were taking place to take advantage of this deal. This time we stayed in the Gables cottage,... More

My husband and I stayed at this charming resort for our 36th Wedding Anniversary. The staff, from the front desk to housekeeping, and everyone in between were extremely hospitable. The hotel is the oldest, continuously, operated hotel in the State of Florida. We felt like we were taking a step back into the past. The Downtown, Lakeside location put everything... More

I do love the setting and the history of this antique hotel. We only stayed one night and it was just ok. First....there was a thick nest of cobwebs on the top of the ONE lamp in the room. I took a photo and showed it to the front desk folks. They said they would notify housekeeping, but that was... More

The tub although clean was OLD and deep. If you can't handel steps try to get into the main buildeing. Rates were resonable for Mr Dora, $139/night.... More

Mt. Dora is one of my favourite little towns so staying at Lakeside Inn was a must. The front desk staff was excellent, took an interest in us and made us feel very welcome. The rooms are old but charming. We had a complimentary breakfast included which was nice but if you are looking for quick service this is not... More

When we arrived at the Inn it was like going back in time, the wooden front porch with rocking chairs on it overlooking lake Dora was breathtaking. Upon entering... More
