Just returned from a wonderful stay at The Adora Inn. Arthur and John are super warm and friendly and the breakfasts were BY FAR the most outstanding presented by any B and B that I have ever stayed. The first morning was a Potato Fritta with fresh berries and a yummy yogurt topping. The home made pastries were flaky, buttery and delicious. The second morning they presented a nice dish of Eggs Florentine in a simple white crock. Very nice. Both breakfast offerings were on par with Food and Wine Magazine presentation. They offer to serve a dinner upon reservation. We had the opportunity to witness another couple partaking in this event. The food looked and smelled amazing. These guys can cook!
The Inn is quite charming and is decorated in smartly placed and comfortable mid-century furnishings. Pleasant common areas to enjoy filled with interesting original artwork done by Arthur who is a studio artist and formally from New York. The front porch area has an Old Florida charm and opens up onto the front lawn of this quaint, quiet street. Parking was adequate. We had a guest join us for dinner one evening and there was parking available on the street just off the front walk.
The location is convenient to easily walk to the Historic downtown shopping district. Plenty of restaurants and a collection of 4 wine bars of varying atmospheres and selections. We consider ourselves foodies, so The Goblin Market was the only dining experience that was worthy of mention. Also, if you are visiting the Rennigers Market, it is a easy-to-find 5 minute drive away.
We stayed in The Camel Suite and it was perfect for our party of three. I was traveling with my sister and my teenage daughter. We found the bathroom to be small, but adequate for our needs. Towels were plentiful. When staying at a B and B, I am aware that space is usually at a minimum. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of space in the room. We even had a comfortable Eames style chair in one room. We all took turns throughout the stay hanging out and surfing the net on our laptops using their Complimentary WiFi. Nice touch.
I HIGHLY recommend The Adora Inn for your next stay in Mount Dora. In an attempt to write a completely honest review, I must mention that the shower head/water pressure in our shower was very light which made rinsing difficult. Additionally, it would have been nice to have access to a little something cool to drink, perhaps water or tea and ice upon our return in the afternoons. If I'm getting greedy, perhaps a cookie too! If that is important to you, just remember to grab something to drink before you get back to the Inn in the afternoons. My sister had an upset stomach and when I asked for a Diet soda, they were kind enough to search out a can for her, although it was not readily available. Arthur and John were wonderful hosts for the weekend. Upon leaving, we felt like we were leaving behind two new friends. Nice, sophisticated, peaceful weekend. What more could someone ask for?!
