We had a wonderful stay at the Lakeside Inn for a recent weekend getaway. The Inn is a collection of historical buildings on Dora Lake that include a restaurant, bar, gift shop, swimming pool, boat dock, and small sand beach. Our suite was clean and comfortable. The air conditioner kept our room icy cold and felt nice after a hot... More

The first weekend in August, my hubby took me away before the school year began the following week. While we only drove 14 miles, we felt as though we entered a different world. This Inn was beyond perfect! We sat for several hours and rocked in rocking chairs just sipping sweet tea! I truly melted away! The room was so... More

I spent two day at Lakeside Inn as part of a work retreat and really enjoyed our time there; its a quaint, old, historic inn with wonderful accessibility to a beautiful lake as well as the shops and restaurants of Mt. Dora. I live within driving distance and had never been there and really appreciated the great historical pieces that... More

My wife and I & another couple visited the Lakeside Inn in May (Bluesfest weekend). It was our 2nd visit and the other couples first. They mentioned, "you told us this place was nice, but we didn't expect anything like this"! Everything was fantastic. Rooms, buildings, grounds, service, food, and ambience. Also, being within walking distance of the Bluesfest, and... More

Purchased a room with a king size bed through expedia and upon arriving was given keys to a room with twin beds. Returned to the front desk and after 5 minutes of stalling was told that they were out of those rooms and that I should call expedia for a refund. Called them and sat on hold for a half... More

Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. This Inn is rather short on amenities in that there is no hair dryer or coffee pot, and the towels were a bit rough, but we were provided a small refrigerator upon request. The room was clean and spacious, and the staff was very pleasant. The views are quite wonderful, the grounds... More

We stopped here to visit with my brother, who lives in town. And had a nice boat ride and great evening entertainment. We didn't have breakfast here, which we have had during past visits. And I will say the food was delicious! Comfortable and nice and cool rooms. The perfect place to lay our heads after a full day of... More

My wife and I came here to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. Mt. Dora is a historic, quaint city and the Lakeside Inn matches that feeling perfectly. The hotel has masterfully kept up with the times but also stays true to it's history. We stayed in a lake front room and were blown away by the size of the... More

I definitely have a great point of view considering that I was the bride! :) Seriously though, I could not have been happier with the service, attention to detail, and wonderful setting for both the ceremony and reception. Working with Stacy Martin was a joy and she really knows how to pay attention to those little details that really count... More
