In the heart of Mount Dora's Historic District is this 1917 Florida Vernacular home; remodeled by its travel writing owners as a British Colonial lodge with rooms reflecting Asia, India, Africa, the South Pacific, Egypt, and other exotic locales. With more than ten years in business and a string of excellent reviews to tell the story, consider this for your next excursion. Small and intimate, romantic and restful, the Coconut Cottage is perfect for couples, small groups, girlfriend getaways, and mother-daughter weekends... And it just may be the most exotic journey you can take without a passport!

To whimsy upon this folly was a highlight of our trip. Entering the immaculate home you are transported across continents with an eclectic display of objet d'art from years of the owners travels. A very warm hearted host with a passion for her guest house. The most comfortable

"All of the rooms look nice but ask about bathrooms if you have special needs to help you decide which room works best for you"
"The India Room was where we stayed. Next time we're trying the Asia Room. They've done an incredible job decorating this interesting, comfortable B&B"
"Be prepared to climb stairs in this old house."
"All the 3 rooms are wonderful !"
"At present, you can choose the "Asia Room" or the "Africa Room" and enjoy access to a second story porch that is perfect sitting and enjoying of a morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. Either room is a treat in terms of accommodation and decor."
