Melanie was incredible! Such a warm spirit and home. The breakfasts were delightful and we were within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. Such an inviting and hospitable atmosphere. Will be back again soon! We especially enjoyed the fresh baked goods and comfortable beds :) A + stay! Thanks Melanie!

Quaint turn-of-the-century farmhouse less than a half block from downtown Mount Dora. Spacious and comfortable room, we stayed in Dick's room. Breakfast is awesome! Highly recommend for couples looking for a nice getaway to a fabulous town with lots to do!

A group of eight enjoyed a nice lunch at the Inn. Usually we sit on the porch for our meals to observe Lake Dora, however, they can't accommodate large groups outside. All of our lunches were tasty and beautifully presented. Our waitress was ok; not on par with our past experiences, she was much too chatty, loud and unprofessional.

This bed and breakfast was so cozy and the ladies that run it are so sweet and so accommodating. The town was so fun and had a lot to offer. Restaurants and plenty of activities are within walking distance of the inn so you don't have to take your car out. We loved our stay and will definitely visit again.

This was our 10th visit to Mount Dora (clearly we are fans) but our first time staying at this bed and breakfast. First the location: amazing. One block (two at the most) to almost everything to see/do inside the historic district. The manager, Debbie, was gracious and made sure we were completely comfortable the entire weekend.

What a pleasant city with good shopping, a variety of wonderful crafts and fine biking. I stopped in the town to preview the festival and enjoy the little town atmosphere. We stopped at a wine shop, we were surprised to find a fine ladies dress shop and Mount Dora Historic Inn was a wonderful find. You won't be disappointed.
