First, Heron Cay takes reservations on their own website not on trip advisor so all dates are reported as booked. It should read "not participating" not "no vacancies". Much better ti give Heron Cay a call. Our first trip to Mt Dora, we parked in town and walked to find a B & B. We could see the Lakeside Inn... More

Last summer I stayed at Heron Cay for 2 week nights. I had expected it to be as described in the brochure. When I got there, I was told that there is only one room that can accomadate me (I am disabled and cannot climb stairs). It was outside in the back next to the garages. It was a nice... More

This guest stayed here nearly one year ago and now decides to complain ? ? ? Our brochure & website accurately describes our exceptional accommodations . . . some people do not read . . .

This property is beautiful and the innkeepers, Randy and Margie, are gracious hosts. Each morning at 8 there is coffee and bread offered, then fruit at 9 and a hot breakfast at 10. Randy gives a wonderful run down of the hot treats and Margie takes time to serve coffee and greet all the guests. Breakfast is eaten on beautiful... More

I came to this location to try and de-stress and relax after some Extremely stressful events. Randy and Margie were Exceptional Inn Keepers. When we arrived we were in awe of the massive mansion. The expansive antiques inside were breathtaking. Inn keepers were extremely friendly and have 3 Russian wolfhounds that if I didn't read about them in the Online... More

I would not recommend Heron Cay Lakeview Bed & Breakfast for a catered event of any kind. It was $25.00 per person + tax, plus 18% Gratuity. There was NO service provided. The food was served buffet style, including having to pour your own water and drinks. There was a charge of 3% charge for running my debit card through... More

Charming, cozy, and peaceful. I called to make a last minute Arrangement and the phone was answered promptly by Margie who was polite alert and offered me a decent rate for room on the third floor it was great. I will be staying the next time I visit.

My husband and I just returned home after a two-day stay at Heron Cay B&B. What a wonderful time we had! Not only is the house beautifully decorated but there is so much to learn within its walls. The owners, Margie and Randy, are expert hosts and gourmet cooks, but they are also a treasure trove of knowledge on Russian... More

The key to a fabulous inn are the inn keepers and clean quarters. This place has neither. They were very inhospitable and unfriendly. They were even rude to their own help. The inn is cluttered with antiques that have not been cleaned in years. It is so disappointing, as the inn is the perfect Mount Dora location. Would recommend choosing... More

This complainer obviously has a jaded attitude and was probably the one who barged into the kitchen at 2:10 and said ‘when is the food coming out???’ She should have asked her hostess what was the plan before she had another mimosa. ‘Inhospitable and unfriendly,’ ‘rude to their own help’ . . . not sure where she got this from....

My friend hired this venue for a private bridal shower. The place needed a good dusting. The price per person was to include fruits,cheeses and crackers. The fruits were cut in very small pieces and there were no spreaders for the brie and dip. The luncheon started at 1:00 and it was nearly 3:00 before the meal was served buffet... More

Fancy a Christmassy overnight in beautiful Mount Dora FL? Highly recommend this fabulous B and B. Large, very clean, 3 min walk from town, great service and even pet friendly! Lots to do in the town for a day or two. Also they have the most amazing Russian wolfhounds yet no dog smell whatsoever. Very friendly professional owner couple.
