“Grand B&B offers a welcoming stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

During a weekend visit to Mount Dora, we selected to stay at the Heron Cay B&B, because of its extensive web site and location, walking distance from the historic downtown area. The innkeepers were very welcoming and the room quite spacious and comfortable as described. The inn was full of art and various collections that could entertain while waiting for coffee to be service around 8am and breakfast following about 9:30am. The inn encouraged a relax and lounge about atmosphere, and we did enjoy spending time at this pet-friendly inn.

Room Tip: Their web site is quite extensive on descriptions and photographs. Also, suggest that you call and...

My wife and I made a spur of the moment decision to stay overnight in Mount Dora at Heron Cay. Our room was very comfortable with the usual amenities you would expect. We enjoyed the hearty breakfast the following morning. The proprietors are long-time B&B owners and are very warm and hospitable folks. The Heron Cay is a lovely place to stay if you find yourself in Mount Dora.

Ha Ha...a GEM in disguise and not to be missed. The rooms in the INN are beautiful and comfortable. Breakfasts were great. If I had to recommend any improvements needed it would be the outdoor furniture and maintenance of the pool. Other wise NOT to be missed

Beautiful B&B, lovely town with lots of art, crafts, interesting things to see. The B&B was a great place to stay - close enough to walk to downtown. The owners are fabulous people - very welcoming. The place was immaculate, breakfast was delicious. Good night's sleep, for sure. If you go, please talk to the owners about taking a horse and carriage ride through the town. I believe small dogs are welcome, but (again) better check with the owners. Many beautiful things in the building, so I don't feel it is small-children friendly. The owners have dogs, so perhaps not the place for one with allergies. We'll be back again, just to enjoy the atmosphere and beautiful surroundings.

Room Tip: Check out the website - all rooms are different, so pick the right one for you.

This was our first bed & breakfast stay so I can't make comparisons, but the hostess was very pleasant, our room was spacious, very lovely and filled with antiques and art work. Our breakfast was delicious; the owners had recipes for their egg dishes and lots of information on things to do in Mount Dora. The hostess offerred to make our dinner reservations and spent quite a bit of time showing us around and chatting about the hotel and the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our trip to Mount Dora, a historic town 30 minutes outside of Orlando.

I was impressed the moment we pulled into the driveway. From the beautiful grounds, to the wraparound porch to the many treasures we found inside, Heron Cay is so inviting. And Margie and Randy help to make it this way. Their hospitality was excellent, the breakfast was delicious, and their dogs are beautiful (only if you want to see them). My husband surprised me with this getaway for my 35th birthday and it was truly the best birthday I ever had. :)

Great B&B, very friendly and wonderful breakfast. The owners (Margie and Randy) are warm and gracious, made us feel very welcomed. We brought out young puppy and found our room to be quite nice. Often the rooms allowing pets are subpar, not here.
