Had a very nice stay here. The large grounds are quiet and pretty. Plenty of seating in the porch or outside under the trees. The B&B is less than a mile into the quaint downtown of Mount Dora, definitely within walking distance. Breakfast was good, our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and the hosts are very welcoming, friendly, and...

We had a nice stay at Farnsworth House. We stayed in one of the carriage house units which was a little funky in terms of a B and B, but mostly comfortable. Nice to have a refrigerator and microwave tucked away in this efficiency model. There were some lovely extras-plush robes and slippers, drinks and snacks in the room, delicious...

My husband and I check into the Farnsworth House on October 23rd, to enjoy a long weekend at the Mount Dora Crafts Fair. The B&B is a short 10 minute walk to the middle of Downtown Mount Dora (away from the noisy crowds) where the Crafts Fair was being held. Kim and Soren were our gracious hosts and they keep...

Farnsworth House is a beautiful experience. It is clean and the owners are so sweet! It is close to downtown Mt Dora and we loved our first bed and breakfast experience! The breakfast was delicious. The owners always made sure we had water and asked often if there was anything they could do or get for us.

Our first stay at Farnswoth House B&B was just what we needed. Soren and Kim were gracious hosts and gave us information about where to eat and places to visit. The breakfasts were delicious and Soren and Kim catered to our every need. Our suite was cozy, comfortable and clean with snacks and beverages. Since we are only an hour...

My daughter, her friend and I stayed here for a long weekend. The owner was one of the sweetest women I have ever met. We are picky eaters and she made us a wonderful full course breakfast every morning. She left us bottles of water every night and a goody basket in the room. The rooms were immaculate.

My husband and I stayed here one night during the week while attending a wedding. The hosts were very hospitable. They were so helpful with everything from directions to restaurants. The house has lots of history. This is a charming town to visit and the Farnsworth House was a nice place to stay.

I am considering moving to Mt Dora and was meeting with a realtor. The Innkeepers, Kim and Soren are great representatives of this lovely town. The breakfasts were delicious. My room was beautiful and immaculate. I left there feeling I had two new friends. I highly recommend The Farnsworth House, Ellen Teichart, St Charles, IL

Seven good friends, two nights, and no one called us "Mom"! What made the weekend great was the setting and hospitality of Kim & Soren. They were attentive but not "in your face". Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. Three of us stayed upstairs in the Azalea room, two stayed in the Canary room, which...

The Farnsworth House sits quietly in a pretty setting not far from 'downtown' Mount Dora. Kim and Soren are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and willing to make suggestions. The room was really clean and comfortable. The breakfast was served at the time we requested and was fresh and delicious.
