We spent the weekend having a wedding at the Duncan House. The wedding party had the house from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. I hope this review is helpful to anyone doing this specifically. If you are just looking to stay as a guest of the B&B, you will likely have a very different experience. We had the entire house... More

This is a lovely old mansion that sits on the lake in downtown Tavares. Three friends and I arrived to a beautiful three-bedroom suite. Innkeeper Brian could not have been more accomodating. He even got up and made breakfast for us at 6:00 am on Sunday morning so we would have sufficient fuel for our half-marathon! We were so impressed... More

Duncan House is on Lake Dora and the property and views are stunning. The house and rooms are very comfortable and welcoming. The service was impeccable. You really do feel like you're home. If you're going to the Tavares/Mount Dora area, this is where you want to stay!

Several girlfriends and I went to Tavares for the Orange Blossom Half Marathon. Little did we know when we made the reservation, it was walking distance from the starting line! Brian was a fabulous host. He catered to our every need including a custom-ordered breakfast at 6:00 a.m.! The evening before the race we enjoyed a lovely lake view while... More

Honestly, I could ramble on and on about how great our weekend was but I don't want to bore you. Bottom line, the house was absolutely gorgeous and interesting to be in, and the best money I've spent so far this year. Brian, the owner, was just the friendliest guy ever and made our trip that much more fun. We... More

We went to Tavares to get away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando. The Duncan House ended up being the perfect place to go. The room was large and elegant. The bathroom was huge. I felt like we had stepped back in time in this historic mansion, except for the wifi and large flat screen in the main room.... More

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing getaway for our anniversary, something on a lake in the Mount Dora area. This large house was designed by a female architect, circa 1927 and we were surprised by the workmanship and elegant appeal this home offered. It is a very pleasant Bed and Breakfast with adequate and spacious accommodations, and... More

My husband and I were looking for a spot to spend our 25th anniversary. We are from the Orlando area and wanted a short drive and a romantic location. I found the Duncan House online and booked a night. We were surprised and delighted to find that the Duncan House is a few football fields from the Historic section of... More

My wife and I live in Orlando and decided we would take a brief road trip to Lake County. We did some web browsing and found The Duncan House. This is a good area to stay and from this area you can visit Mount Dora, Eustis, Tavares and the surounding area of Lake County and the Lakes. The Duncan House... More

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend at The Duncan House Bed and Breakfast. The house was beautiful. It is situated right on the lake and decorated with antiques. The breakfast was very good, with waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, sausage, juice and coffee. Tavares is a quaint little town, with a huge playground and water play area for the kids. Mount Dora...
