We stayed in the grapefruit room and it was clean and very accommodating. We even got to choose what we wanted for breakfast. The house itself is beautiful with a lovely screened in gazebo for relaxing outdoors. It's also very close by to the historic district. We were very pleased with our stay here and we will definitely be coming... More

Needed to get out of St. Augustine FL for a night and could not have found a more relaxing place. While Mt. Dora is a wonderful town and I do love visiting, we chose to stay put and bask in the quiet comfort of the Farnsworth House. The Bamboo room was super clean and the bed was made for sleeping....

We booked our reservation directly with the owners by phone, which gave us the opportunity to ask questions about the rooms, and a chance to "meet" our hosts before we arrived. It's a well maintained property and the owners were friendly and accommodating. Our room on the ground floor of the main building was spacious and the bed was very... More

I chose this B&B because I was looking for a place single ladies could enjoy with two beds in a room. This is more and more difficult to find in B&Bs. I found even more! Kim and Soren welcome their guests as if you are family, helping with suitcases, checking on breakfast requests, and giving suggestions for places to visit... More

Our room on the 1st floor of the main house was lovely and spotless. Our hosts offered helpful tips to make our stay in Mt. Dora more enjoyable, and made a phone call to reserve places on the popular Premier Boat Tour. They served us a delicious hot breakfast, and helped us in planning a possible future visit with a...

My 85-year-old mother and I stayed here a few weeks ago when we came to Mt. Dora for my cousin's funeral. We were both extremely happy with our arrangements. We had reserved 2 rooms and they were very considerate of my mother's age in determining which rooms we should book and which of the 2 rooms we booked she should... More

I would say that this is a very average B&B with nothing really special about it. Three bedrooms upstairs, 2 downstairs in the main house and three cottage bedrooms. We were in the main house in the Azalea room. The room was quite large with a queen size bed, a day bed and another one in the closet if you... More

Very clean, comfortable and quite. Just what you want with a B&B. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious with a little kitchenette. Good AC and small but efficient bathroom. Our room had a separate sitting area with TV. Like a little apartment. I would definitely return. The breakfast was a little less than I... More

I was not sure about this place when I first booked, after I read some reviews that put a sour flavor in my mouth. How wrong I was, and how far from real those comments are!!! This is a sweet place to stay, like if we had a weekend with some relatives. Kim made us feel so welcome from the... More

This was our second visit to the historic Farnsworth House located in beautiful Mt. Dora. This B&B offers late 1800's period style and charm in what was the winter home of a business owner from New York. Mr. Farnsworth built this home to accommodate his entire family and now provides a quiet, romantic retreat located minutes away from the town... More
