We just returned from Mt. Dora. We stayed at the Lakeside Inn hotel. Beautiful landscape, sunsets, good food at the restaurants. Hotel is certainly old, but I wasn't ready to experience such age. Our rooms smelled very old, and musty. Room was good size, but the ac truly ruined it for me. We had a portable ac unit, and the... More

Literally just got back from a 3 day visit (Aug 29, 30, 31). Took advantage of the Escape package the Inn offers and can say I don't regret it one bit. Breakfast voucher took care of breakfast every morning, and no cheesy continental breakfast, this was great warm, cooked to order meals! A fifty dollar dinner voucher took care of... More

This is a romantic setting. The buildings date from 1883 to the 1920's, and as you would expect require a lot of maintenance. The owner's are trying to keep it up, but some of the repairs are less than true craftsmanship. At the current time the Terrace building is under renovation, hot, smelly and a very dirty hall carpet. We... More

Well... me and my wife set out to have a romantic get away and opted for the "THE LAKESIDE INN" in MT. Dora. After we checked in and went to our room we were greeted by a room with little to no charm at all and a tiny window A/C unit.... ugh.... king size bed that was very unattractive with... More

My wife and I visited here Aug 9-12. We were very happy with the central location to everything Mt Dora has to offer. Room was rather small but suited our needs fine. Very historic place but well maintained and can't say enough about the friendly staff! Always willing to assist even Buddy the resident dog looked happy. Will stay there... More

My Husband and I where finally able to stay here the weekend of Nov. 18th 2013 for our anniversary. We have tried to stay there a few times and due to antiques festivals and other things could never get a room or enough rooms for our group so we had to stay elsewhere. The bed was horrible. I've never seen... More

We are from Naples and went on a weekend get away to Mount Dora. We purchased the special from Lakeside Inn - The Weekend Escape. 2 nights with breakfast - $50 towards dinner and a bottle of wine/champagne. We knew there were renovations going on so we were prepared. It's a beautiful place with a lot of history. We were... More

We stayed 2 nights in a lake view room. The room was spacious and lovely. You couldn't get any closer without being in the water! I could lie on the bed and see the lake! At night the dock is lit with lights and chairs are out to enjoy the sunset. Totally charming. Thanks goes out to Sabrina at the... More

The Lakeside Inn is right on the lake and has a wonderful outdoor swimming pool. Very nice staff and the night we stayed they were hosting a wedding and a local craft event. I was able to pick up some wonderful pottery pieces and listen to The Wholetones a wonderful band with an electric cello and a banjo at times.... More
