Whatever you do.. donot let them put you in the main building on a weekend with a wedding....You will be very very sorry that you did not act on this warning! The first night I called twice after 11pm about the noise in the lobby from a wedding party. The next night had two wedding parties and a kid banging... More

This place is quaint and old and nice view of the Lake; however, we got a deal through Living Social and paid it in full, then had a $32.70 charge on top of it and then when we checked out they put another $16.70 charge on called LAST SUMMER WEEKEND. That is ridiculous. The place was noisy and we had... More

Lakeside Inn is located in Mt. Dora, Florida....a charming little town situated on Lake Dora. So much to do within walking distance from the inn. I enjoyed staying there but there are just a few suggestions I'd like to make. Bear in mind I stayed in the original building, NOT one of the auxiliary buildings. For my small room (yes... More

This place is a beautiful property. I just wish that it was better managed. It has a ton of potential but unfortunately I will never stay here again. I came to Mt Dora to visit family with my one year old son. Knowing that it was going to be a long day of travel for he and I, I made... More

The rooms are abysmally blank of any personality, let alone convenience of any kind. In a town bursting at the seams with antique and vintage furniture and wares, you'd think each room or at least each "cottage lobby" would be a charming, eccentric statement of the town. They are as dull as the lobby in an assisted living facility. Aside... More

This was our first visit to Lakeside Inn, but it will not be the last! From the time we checked in until the day we had to leave, we enjoyed every minute! The staff were all very friendly and very gracious! We loved our waitress(Katie) in the restaurant & the food was delicious! Our room was very clean & very... More

This place is an old Florida charm! The staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable and clean but not posh by any means. Still enjoyed the vintage feel and ambiance that can only be enjoyed and appreciated at a true old charming lakeside retreat.

Came here on a mini vacation for my birthday and it was amazing! Lake Dora has amazing sunsets and scenery. Floyd, a server at Lakeside Inn, was awesome and very helpful knowledge of things to do. The lighthouse and boardwalk was very nice. Saw many baby gators in the water right under the boardwalk. I would highly recommend going on... More

The Lakeside Inn is in an excellent location, convenient/walkable to all the unique shopping and fabulous restaurants Mount Dora has to offer!! The Inn was built in the 1920s…And the... More

I spent a Saturday and Saturday night/Sunday morning at the Lakeside Inn and thoroughly enjoyed the stay thanks to its walking proximity to the shopping and dining of downtown Mount Dora plus the Farmer's Market on Sunday morning in the adjacent lakeside park. This historic inn has been a Florida icon since 1883 and famous for its rooms overlooking the... More
