Beautiful B&B in downtown Mt. Dora. Lucy, the innkeeper, could not have been nicer and more a accommodating. Breakfast was delicious and the cookies were a nice touch! Could walk to all the attractions. Don't miss The Goblin Market...Great lunch.

So glad we found this B&B. Lovely 90 year old property. Exceptionally clean. It was like staying in an old Southern family home, very comfy and our host, Lucy, was very interesting and couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was good with hot drinks available all day long. Best nights sleep we have had in a long time, comfy bed,... More
