Perfect location to park once and walk everywhere . Lovely setting on the lake. The rooms are ok comfortable bed but they smell musty and old. Aggravating that the gardener chose to run the weed eater at 830 on a Sunday morning. We will be back due to the location but the hotel needs to do some sprucing up.

A real gem sitting overlooking the lake; it has recently been updated for the better; grounds well groomed; dining area brought up to date, serving delicious food. The bar area offers a more casual atmosphere with music... The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

This hotel is a great one for those into antique and historical locations. In addition, if you are interested in paranormal stories the staff here have plenty about some of the hotel's permanent residents. While the two room suite wasn't fitted with the most deluxe of accommodations it stayed very humble to the resorts heritage. Had no complaints about the... More

Beauclaire Restaurant in the Lakeside Inn was a wonderful experience. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. My wife and I both were there for lunch and had salads. The Florida fruit salad with the citrus vinaigrette was superb. Best salad she has ever had!! Wonderful service nas setting.

Did not actually stay here but visiting it for a meal in their wonderfully elegant but accessible dining rooms, shopping in the gift shop or rocking the sunset away in a chair on the veranda overlooking Lake Dora is a memorable experience. Just off "downtown" Mt. Dora, the Lakeside Inn is as unique as the egrets walking around on its... More

Came to Mount Dora to be my brother's "Best Gal" at his nuptials. We stayed at the Lakeside, which is an old, but is full of southern charm and ambiance. We ate a few meals at Germain ' s and got many "travelers" to take back to the room. Germain' s is a great place to sit at the bar... More

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
