My daughter and I enjoyed the atmosphere and hospitality of Heron Cay. The location is a short walk from the heart of downtown Mount Dora. Margie is a wonderful hostess and breakfast was delicious. The banana cake and frittatas were especially good. Our room was gorgeous, with a canopy bed and fireplace. Whether on business, vacation or just need a place to relax, I recommend Heron Cay Lakeview Bed and Breakfast.

I went to Mount Dora on a whim during the Corona Virus outbreak. I drove up to the Heron Cay without reservations, knocked on the door and Margie invited me in like I was family! She had me squared away in no time and I was exploring the adorable little downtown of Mount Dora! Margie (and her daughter and grandson, Melissa and Jacob) made me feel so much at home my one night stay turned in to three. The house is a beautifully furnished Victorian with lovely gardens and a swimming pool. I stayed in Zoi Garden which is on the lower level with private access. It was so peaceful and quiet, I slept straight through the night. I am not a breakfast person but I didn't dare miss Margie's eggs, sausage, ham, fruits and fresh bread to start off my days. So delicious!! Another highlight for me was their Borzois and cats!! Such wonderful pets...and you can bring yours too!! While I adored Mount Dora, I would go back just for the wonderful company and Heron Cay!

Great trip, lovely atmosphere. Service was great and breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Will be back again. Miss Margie was delightful. Mount Dora shops were fun to visit and the variety of restaurants were a plus for the area.

Christmas season in Mount Dora was fabulous. It was our anniversary and while we live in Jacksonville, we had not explored much about central Florida so we took off for a night. Everything about Heron Cay was wonderful. We had originally planned to visit as we were heading to family in South Florida over Thanksgiving but we had to cancel so when we contacted them about rebooking they were delightful. The Inn is minutes from downtown and as the December night was pretty mild we walked to dinner and enjoyed the decorations and Christmas music. Our stay at Heron Cay was wonderful, breakfast was fantastic and everything about our visit exceeded our expectations.
