As you enter the Lakeside Inn the scent and look of over a century ago are evident. Reminiscent of the Estes Park, Colorado hotel where the "Shining" was filmed, it's full of atmosphere, age and appeal. A beautiful bulding with flower gardens and Spanish moss dripping from the giant oak trees. On a hot day in July, the dim air... More

Really great place to stay. Yes the hallways are a little dated but the room we stayed in was clean, great view and had very charming decorations very in character with the hotel style. We had a lakeside view it was amazing. The shopping and parks are within walking distance, we never moved our car. We only ate there in... More

The Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora is really a great place to stay. As other reviews indicate it is not a five-star resort. Still it is 131 years old and has character. The staff were very friendly. It is in a great location. Everything is within walking distance. If you would like a nice, relaxing place to stay in Mount... More

Absolutely loved the Lakeside Inn! It is like taking a step back in time! I stayed two nights with my sister for a get-away and couldn't be more pleased. Everyone that works there is so friendly and accommodating. Sabrina, at the desk, answered all of our questions about the history of the area. She really made us feel as if... More

We had often seen the historic 1883 Lakeside Inn from a distance when we visited Mt. Dora in the past, but it was only recently that we planned a weekend stay with friends who had been guests there before. Like a gracious old dowager who is showing her age, the guest room accommodations are less than ideal although the grounds... More

Built in 1883 and you can tell! Rooms in the Inn itself offer as many modern upgrades as possible given the building's age. Room a/c, claw foot tub with makeshift shower curtain, some cracking paint... But it was clean, the a/c worked, the bar and lobby were as true to original as could be, the porch had rocking chairs and... More

Staying at the Lakeside Inn is like going back in time. Our room was on the first floor as promised with a delightful view of the pool and lake. We had drinks in the lounge while listening to a Jazz Quartet and ate breakfast with a lovely view of the lake. I recommend the inn to anyone looking to get... More

The Lakeside Inn located in beautiful Mount dora,Florida,the antique capital of central florida and home to numerous festivals throughout the year. The hotel which is located at Lake Dora in the downton district is probably the most beautiful setting in all of central florida for this well maintained vintage hotel. There is a sense of a bygone era,the short stroll... More

I liked the Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora I went again this July. They had a great 2 night package which included breakfast and one dinner and free bottle of wine. My friend and I had a ball. We went when no events were taking place to take advantage of this deal. This time we stayed in the Gables cottage,... More

On March 26 2014 we made reservations on two rooms for an overnight stay on July 3-4 2014. We reserved one queen room for my father and a courtyard king room for my wife, child, and myself. Upon our arrival we were given two queen rooms and were told the Inn was fully booked and that there were no king... More
