It was our pleasure to stay 2 nights at the Farnsworth House B & B in Mt. Dora, Florida. Owners Kim and Soren provide well appointed rooms and delicious hot breakfasts. Farnsworth House is a historic home with beautiful wood floors, wainscoting and crown molding. The lodging is spotlessly clean, they offer a wide variety of rooms and suites, each with private baths, generous pillows, and fresh linens. In addition to breakfast, beverages and snacks were provided each day. Mt. Dora is known for it’s antiques and the historic district was a short walk from our B & B.

Farnsworth House is a wonderful place to stay. The charming old house was very clean with beautiful grounds. Owners were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The made to order breakfasts were excellent. Fresh fruit and yogurts accompanied eggs, bacon, sausage. Special requests were no problem. Great place to stay in Mount Dora

We enjoyed our recent visit immensely. Kim was a perfect hostess. She called ahead to find out our time of arrival so as to have the air conditioning on. She also inquired about our dietary restrictions and breakfast preferences. The breakfast was delicious. Our accommodations were clean and the location was convenient to downtown Mt. Dora. We will return!!
