My wife and I went in for dinner on a Sunday evening, having called ahead for a reservation and to hear the menu. The menu on Sunday evenings is limited, and is similar to lunch. There were two tables with customers, one being us--the rest of the restaurant was empty. The grouper sandwich is actually basa fish. I asked for...

The property was beautiful and well cared for. It was also wonderful to sit by the fire in the lobby. The biggest disappointment was the rooms. They took no consideration when decorating. The shams and spread on the bed smelled like they had not been washed in a long time. Wish they had put a small coffee maker in the...

Beautiful and charming hotel/inn which owns a commanding view of Lake Dora. It has extensive grounds with multiple buildings and even includes a wharf. We took a walk around the beautiful property which had a few guests staying over for Thanksgiving weekend. Lake tours and seaplane tours are available at the inn.

Bemused at some of the reviews (and I really wanted to give 5 stars, but the terrible kitchen killed that possibility).... This is an old hotel built in the 1880s. Clean, tidy, freshly painted, but old and historic nonetheless. The flooring, rooms, hallways, doors, locks, plumbing, windows and fixtures are all old and a little quirky. But that is part...

This was a lovely inn that really made you feel like you had gone back in time. It's not as grand as the hotel on Mackinac Island but similar with the large veranda and rockers. The lake side view was breathtaking....especially at sunset. There are many enchanting restaurants and shops within walking distance. It is a true getaway from everyday...

Have lived in Tampa 30 years and finally went to Mount Dora. Wow. So impressed with this little town. Cannot wait to return. We knew the hotel would be lacking in convenience as it is over 100 years old so we were not blind sided. We paid 209 for a queen bed room that was small and in the main...

We stayed at the Lakeside Inn overnight on Thanksgiving. We had dinner there. The buffet was FABULOUS. The Inn has a beautiful view of the lake. It is steps from shops and restaurants and about a block from Palm Island Park. We enjoyed a beautiful walk on the boardwalk in the park on Friday. Our room was very clean, quaint...

We took a little getaway for our 42nd wedding anniversary. We had never stayed at the Lakeside Inn. It was a wonderful 3 day trip. We stayed there in October. It is very well situated so that you can walk to restaurants and shops or just sit on their porch and rock the evening away.

Our room was in one of the annex buildings. The room was quite small. Bathroom not updated and no plug neat sink for blowdryer. We were on the first floor and heard every footsteps from second floor. The light in hallway was kept on all night so our room never got dark. Up at crack of dawn because no blackout...

This is at best a 2 star hotel with 5 star prices especially at the restaurant for breakfast. Not the best check in process as I feel we were lied to as to the availability of rooms in a certain building. The hotel was trying to go for the classic look but failed miserably. It looked classic because it is....
