Thurston House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Maitland B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 14, 2011

My husband and I chose this place for our honeymoon. Carole and Joe were very professional but yet very welcoming and accommodating. We felt as if it was our home, it's a clean and a beautiful house in a wonderful town. It was a romantic getaway with lots of privacy but yet near the town and Orlando. We could not have chosen a more perfect place. I recommend this place for any occasion, it beats any chain by a 100%. We are planing to visit many more times. We are lucky to live only 2 hours away, because it truly is a piece of heavan. Carole and Joe are fantastic Inn keepers. Oh, and breakfast is DELICIOUS and fresh.

Room Tip: O'haire room is the best, you get an amazing view especially at sunrise...WOW!!!

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said, so many great reviews already before me.
I booked this via the Internet back in UK after reading trip advisor and using google maps to ensure it was the correct position for our vacation
I had booked all three rooms for my family members and were met on the porch by Carole as we arrived at the House.
It was exactly how you would expect it if like me you spent some hours researching and looking at previous visitors comments and views.
The House is set on a lake, the rooms are all beautifully laid out, we had chocolates, flowers and a little photo frame gift placed on the bed.
After a long flight we got a great night sleep and Carole prepared a great breakfast of fresh fruit to start and egg casserole, sausages and dip.
Maitland itself is a very pleasant place, our hosts recommended the Cheesecake Factory for evening meal, they did all sorts of meals not just cheesecake, try the Meatloaf....very good.
The next morning after another home cooked breakfast we took a stroll around the two lakes, very peaceful listening to all the birds.
Carole and Jon invited us for cheese and wine on the porch with them in the afternoon, so we made sure we got back to enjoy this.
Sometimes if you use Trip Advisor alot like we do when travelling across the world you are able to find hidden gems and I can assure you if you stay at the Thurston House you will not be disappointed
We will always want to stay here if landing at Orlando.

We just spent the Valentine Holiday at the Thurston House, and we absolutely loved it! The location is great! We enjoyed being only 5 minutes away from the Winter Park area, close to some amazing restaurants, and only a couple of minutes away from the Enzian Theater. Carole and Joe, the innkeepers, were great hosts and the attention to detail is what makes this place unique. We walked into our room with rose petals, a small gift, and chocolate. Carole was great with giving us all the information we needed and you can tell she really loves, and cares for the Thurston House. It was very clean, and the breakfast in the morning will leave you wanting more! If you are ever in the need to escape from it all, you should really consider the Thurston House.

Truely an enjoyable experience. Breakfast table setting & food just top quality. Carole recommended Antonio's in Maitland for dinner.
www.AntoniosOnline.com. Again a very enjoyable experience. Unwind a little and enjoy Thurston House B&B. Chocolate bar on the bed & wine and cheese @ 5p.m.; a 'classy' touch!!!! Thanks Carole & Joe.

We wanted a couple of days to relax before attending a conference in Orlando, so we booked two nights in the red O'Heir room with a lake view. It was a perfect way to wind down. Carole and Joe are the ultimate hosts, attending to every detail and anticipating what we might need or want. Carole's breakfasts were creative, delicious and varied. Sitting in a rocker on the screened porch for afternoon wine, crackers and delicious grapes is a wonderful memory. We are grateful for the excellent local restaurants and museums that Carole recommended, complete with directions and maps. Thurston House is highly recommended!

The Thurston House B&B was a great find. It is the only B&B that is very close to Winter Park. The hosts where great. There was wine and cheese in the afternoon, good recommendations for dinner, a good home cooked full breakfast and lovely accommodations.
