“beautiful town”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Lovely quaint town to have a wander round, then a trip on the lake and a meal in one of the many bistros and excellent restaurants. Gives the feel of how the old genteel florida possibly used to be before disney. A welcome worldaway from the theme parks!

“Lake Dora perfect for sunsets, water activities”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Lake Dora, bookended by Mount Dora and Tavares, offers a great location for water sports and what we think is Central Florida's perfect sunset watching spot. From the Midwest we'd never swim here (gators and snakes) but to be on or enjoy from the shore it is perfect. Mount Dora's Boardwalk area is an ideal spot to enjoy it from.

“Sunsets”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Enjoy a beautiful sunset in Mount Dora from the lighthouse or from the porch (with a nice glass of wine) of the Lakeside Inn or head up to Pisces Rising outdoor patio for happy hour. Best places in Mount Dora for a sunset!

“A Beautiful location in Central Florida”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

A beautiful lake and City Mount Dora and The Lake. A charming community with rolling hills. A reminder of Old Florida, and a touch of New England.

“PICTURESQUE”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The lake seems small at first but that is part of the charm. Easy to navigate. There are boat tours of the canals and channels off the lake, as well as seaplane rides and fishing.
