I'm a harsh critic and I've stayed in quite a few bnbs, but I have no negatives to say about the place..whatsoever... the only bad thing was the weather and that was out of control! My boyfriend and I flew down from Chicago for a wedding in Eustis and this bnb was only about 10-15 minute drive to the church. The inn is actually in Tangerine, not Mt. Dora, which might be a 2 minute drive away. When we checked in, the mother/daughter couple running the inn were extremely nice and on top of it gave us freshly baked chocolate chips with milk in our room, which were delicious by the way. More cookies came the next day which were peanut butter, I don't looove peanut butter cookies but these were tasty as well. We couldn't eat all the cookies, so they provided ziplocs so we could take the leftovers home. Breakfast definitely ranks in the top two I've had at bnbs, the only other one that might top was in France where the owner made homemade brioche and preserves. For breakfast, you get way too much food for one person, but it was all very good. A homemade cinnamon roll that the mother (who gets up at 2am to take the dough out and let it rise), a biscuit, some sort of egg casserole or bake, a hot biscuit, and a cup of fresh fruit in which the type changed daily.
I stayed in the Hilda room which was quite large, had a very comfortable kind size bed, a firelpleace, a lovely whirlpool tub for two, along with a separate shower. There were dvds in the hallway along with novels which you could borrow and just relax around the inn if you so desired.
Mother and daughter were so nice. The daughter even offered to pick us up from the wedding/church if the taxi we hired wasn't reliable, just very sweet, genuine people. If I'm ever in the area, I'll definitely stay there again. We'll be recommending this place to our friends and family for sure and will probably be buying a gift certificate for my boyfriend's parents.
