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

Staff very friendly, rooms were clean, comfy rocking chairs on front veranda, very large pool, breakfast/lunch/dinner served on premises. Grounds were beautiful. Quaint old establishment but kept up very well.

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

I have lived in FLA for over 35 years and have never been to Mount Dora or the surrounding areas before and what a pleasant surprise. We were in the area for the weekend to attend RENNINGERS ANTIQUE EXTRAVAGANZA! That is a whole other post! Anyway we stayed at the Lakeside inn at the recommendation of friends. This time they...

This used to be out go to spot in Mt. Dora, wouldn't stay anywhere else, but the last few times have made us question our decision. The location is utterly charming and the entire "estate" is wonderful, but it does need some cosmetic repair, but we could live with that. The room accommodations were sub-par and the staff, although helpful... More

It's an old hotel so we didn't expect too much. The Good-Friendly staff, close to shops, dining, park, and lake. Good breakfast, dinner on our 2nd night there was average. The Bad-we stayed in the Sunset Cottage building and it was very musty and damp smelling. The room was OK, carpet was pretty worn and torn in some areas. Beds... More
