“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We spent our recent anniversary in this lovely B&B, and we loved it so much that we plan to stay here on all future trips to Mt Dora. The property is beautiful and maintained well. We really enjoyed the pool and the mutiple outdoor porch areas to sit and relax. The breakfast was delicious, and the evening wine social was an added bonus. The owners (Patti and Gordi) are the most personable people we have ever encountered in a B&B, and they clearly enjoy spending time getting to know their guests. They go the extra mile to attend to "the little things" that make a stay special. We loved our stay and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We loved the Charleston room overlooking the pool on one side and the front of the property on the o...

Our hosts Gordy and Patti were just the best at helping us with whatever we needed to make our stay a great one. Gordy's breakfasts were superb and more than we could eat. Happy hour was nice with Gordy and Patti joining the guests. Our next b & b stay will have a hard time measuring up to our Grandview experience.

The reviews are correct, this is an outstanding B&B.
OK, we've only been to a few B&Bs- but some very classy ones.
My daughter says this was the best.

Great hospitality, food, pool, setting. Very walkable to the town 3 blocks away.
Innkeepers couldn't be more helpful. By the way, they are past guests who bought the B&B!
Pretty cool.

This is a lovely and well-maintained property that is beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The owners were attentive and friendly without being intrusive. They were quick to suggest things to do in Mt. Dora and make reservations for you. They even brought our wine and cheese to us and the other guests poolside. The inn was of easy walking distance to the downtown. I would, without reservation, recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: The Country French Room was lovely!

I have known Patti for 30 years and she has asked me repeatedly to come visit them when I get to Orlando. I usually end up in the Ft. Lauderdale area so I decided to fly to Orlando and leave from Ft. Lauderdale. Like all of the reviews, the Grandview Bed and Breakfast is rated Number 1 and there is no doubt as to why. Patti is the perfect host and Gordie is a superb chef. Having stayed in a couple of B&B, I have never experienced the breakfasts that Gordie prepared. Unbelievable! The facilities are beautiful and the other guests I met during this weekend are the nicest people. The afternoon includes various fruit, cheese and vegetables. I will definitely be back. The only negative thing is I'll never be satisfied with another B&B again!!!!!!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong!

Loved our recent stay in Mount Dora at the Grandview. The owners ensure that guests have a lovely time and feel quite welcome. Our room was clean with nice bedding and all amenities, the breakfast was excellent, but we really enjoyed talking with the other guests at the wine/cheese hour on the porch! Many guests were repeat visitors and it was easy to see why...Patti and Gordie are excellent innkeepers providing helpful local information and great accommodations in a walkable location to all the attractions in this quaint little town. We never moved our car.

Room Tip: we had the garden room off the pool area and it was private with a ceiling fan and a small fridge.

The owners of The Grandview B&B should teach other Bed & Breakfast owners how it's done properly. We enjoyed three nights and it just wasn't long enough. Honestly, I cannot say anything that has not already been said. Just go and see for yourself.
