“What a gem!”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

Stayed two nights in the Nature Cabin (husband and teen son). Loved the privacy and all of the amenities. The Alling House is just 5 minutes from Blue Springs State Park, an incredibly place to spend a day. We left early one morning, and made it to Orlando when the parks opened. Great location, great place.

Alling House B&B provided a fabulous get-away for our 10yr Anniversary. Between Gerald and Nan's friendly, inviting conversations, delectable breakfast, ready assistance with kayaks, bikes and local information, thoughtful decoration and preparation of the Nature Cottage and uncommon knack for providing an open space we had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. We highly recommend taking advantage of this remarkable B&B and only wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

We were just fortunate enough to stay with Gerald & Nan again at Alling House in Deland, Fla. This time we enjoyed staying in the Rose Room & it was fantastic, of course! Nan's special lovely touches were evident (chocolates next to the bed, toothbrushes & bubble bath & other commonly forgot-to-bring-from-home items in the bathroom, tissues on the bedside table, etc. etc.) and the room was warm & inviting. Anything that you could possibly want or need is here for you to make your stay as comfortable & unforgettable as possible. And Nan's breakfasts - well, you just HAVE to experience them to understand...made with love, creativity & imagination, we looked forward to seeing what was on the menu for the next morning! Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer....but don't worry...we will be back!!!

We stayed in the Frontier Cottage and it was absolutely perfect! They thought of everything, down to milk/OJ in fridge, extra toothbrushes and razors in the bathroom, bubble bath, DVDs to watch, books to read, CDs to listen to, porch swing. There was even a computer with internet access in the cottage. The list goes on! I also must say, the pictures on their website don't do it justice.

Room Tip: The Frontier Cottage was fantastic, very private, nice and quiet.

Other innkeepers ( and hoteliers ! ) should learn from Gerald and Nan, the owners of Alling House. I hesitated to write a review because I so fell in love with this place that I don't want to run the risk that they'll always be booked whenever I want to stay again ! ( Which will be soon ! ) Used a Living Social coupon to stay for 2 nights which included a bottle of sparkling cider, full hot breakfast either served in the dining room or delivered to your room or cottage, chocolate-covered strawberries and full use of the guesthouse's kayaks to go out on the St. John's River. We stayed in the "nature cottage". Decorated beautifully and so clean one could have eaten off of the hardwood floors. King size four poster bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Cottages come with full kitchens, walk-in stone showers, decks and washer/dryers. Grounds are perfectly kept and the cottages are snug and so quiet that except for the sound of crickets outside, one could hear a pin drop. Within 35 miles of downtown Orlando in quaint Orange City, FL , this is truly the best place to stay in the entire Orlando metropolitan area.

Room Tip: If you want privacy and the ability to play or stereo or the TV at a loud volume, ask for one of th...

This is a great place to stay. We have been staying here for about 3 yrs and have never been disappointed. Nan & Gerald are wonderful and do everything to make your stay memorable. The rooms are all lovely and the cottages are great! This place is wonderful for a romantic getaway or a family outing. Don't skip out on breakfast, it's always enjoyable.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but the Rose is very roomy and all the cottages are wonderful.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We stayed in the frontier themed cottage on the property and loved it! Every detail was considered in making us feel at home and in decorating the cottage to it's theme. The cottage was spotless, and the family was so accommodating.

Orange City is a small town, but it's a great place to visit if you are interested in the outdoors and want to spend timed at Blue Springs state park or on the St. Johns River. The family has bikes and kayaks you can borrow. There is also a quaint little downtown area in nearby Deland that has some cute shops, restaurants and bars.

This place serves as a great weekend getaway, whether you are traveling as a couple or with kids. Nan and Gerald are amazing hosts!

Room Tip: Would recommend the cottages. They are spacious and private and have everything you'd need.
