“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We stayed in Room #1. It was a large room with a king bed and 2 twin beds, perfect for a family. The bathroom is pretty tiny so if you are an extra large person you might find it cramped and hard to get your business accomplished in. The front porch was just yummy, quite large with ample seating, rocking chairs and of course, a wonderful porch swing. The British born hosts were most gracious and fixed a delicious breakfast of our choosing from their ample breakfast menu. They also made restaurant and activity recommendations that were spot on for our tastes. The town of Deland, FL is a great place to center your exploration of Volusia County Florida. The Deland downtown is within walking distance of this B&B. Enjoy the town's many murals and sculptures as you window shop and walk off your latest meal.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Everything was comfortable. It's a charming building, very nice antiquey room with a comfortable bed and all the amenities I needed, and then some. Very nice large space. Excellent breakfast at my own pace. Mark is charming and makes you feel at home. The porch was great! Sit out in the evening and read, relax.

Mark and Vicki did a wonderful job on making our visit very pleasant. The room was amazing! Very comfortable bed, beautiful furnishings and the breakfast was delicious. The porch was wonderful to sit out on the swing in the evening and just relax. We already know that the next time we come to Deland, this will be the place for us to stay at again. Thank you Mark and Vicki for a wonderful stay.

This is not your average bed and breakfast. Thank goodness! Don't worry about meeting a strict arrival time. Don't worry about having your card charged almost before you walk in the door. No, you don't have a parlor. How many folks actually sit on those hard sofas or love seats? You have a great room, a breakfast you choose, and the best host imaginable. This is where you want to stay. This is where you will be happiest. Book it you will not regret this choice?

Absolutely adored this place! Mark, the inkeeper, is sooooooo nice!! We didn't meet Vickie until the day we left, but she was very nice as well. Love the British accents, too! We always stay at B & B's and this one is one of the nicest! Very quaint, very charming. The breakfast area reminds me of an English Tea Room. There is a separate sitting area and even a t.v. room! Our room was in front (we had our dog with us) with the wrap around porch. Rosie, (Mark's dog) was very interested in our little minature poodle! She was smelling him while my boyfriend held him (he's gets a little freaked with big dogs) but she was very gentle. We will be going back to Deland often as my best friend just moved there and we will definitely be staying at this B & B on a regular basis!! It was very close to where my friend lives and very close to the downtown area. Really awesome!! Thanks Mark!

Room Tip: We stayed in the front room as that is the one reserved for those with pets. It was great! Nice ta...

My husband and I stayed in this charming B and B in DeLand, FL during orientation weekend for Stetson. What a wonderful place with wonderful hosts Mark and Vickie. The rooms are cozy and romantic and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. Excellent location near downtown DeLand and Stetson. Highly recommended!

I've stayed here numerous times - as a Stetson graduate and alumni board member, having a clean, comfortable, inviting place to stay makes those college reunions so much better. Mark and Vickie Sutton are awesome hosts and have a lovely home right near downtown. This is great for those of us who wander (as wander we shall in evenings) by the Elusive Grape Wine Shoppe, Blind Pig Bar or Dublin Irish Pub and who definitely don't want to drive after 2-3 libations. The feel of the house is authentic and they have done a wonderful job of getting everyone private baths and comfortable mattresses in every room - there is even a guest cottage for rent out back for larger parties (great for Race Week and Bike Week too!) I've tried the Artisan but the faux-bar/restaurant atmosphere and the dodgy check-in and check-out procedures (and who really owns the place anyway?) make returning to DCI easier. Plus Mark, as a Brit, really knows his way around a rasher of bacon and eggs over easy....

Room Tip: They are all good - I'm partial to the upstairs room at the end of the hall....a bit bigger and...
