We are already making plans to return to this wonderful home -away-from home, comfy and quint historic inn. First of all, what makes this inn so charming is that there are just four rooms.... two on the first floor and two on the second floor. When you are greeted by the wonderful managing innkeeper Melanie, you get the immediate impression...

The Mt. Dora Historical Inn is a sheer delight. It is close to the quaint downtown area which is home to some wonderful shops and great restaurants. The beautiful lake is a short walk away. The Inn (a B&B) is well maintained. Our room was well decorated, clean, quiet, sizable, and the queen size bed was oh, so comfortable. The...

This B&B was great! Melanie the inn keeper was so attentive to our needs. The room was perfect with a king bed and a private bath. My favorites - the fluffy white towels, the comfy bed and amazing french toast for breakfast. We were able to walk downtown and to the lake.

This B&B is right in downtown Mount Dora, less than 1 or 2 blocks to all the restaurants and bars etc. My room was nice and comfortable and I slept great. It is an old historic house with lots of character, but also has some modern amenities like wifi and decent cable tv. I will hopefully stay here again soon.

This was our second visit to the inn. Melanie went out of her way to make us comfortable, recommended activities and restaurants in town, and even made reservations for us. She truly is the hostess with the "mostest"! We hope to visit with her again many more times throughout the years. The breakfasts were so delicious and she never steered...

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at the end of December and really enjoyed it! It was our first time staying at a B&B so we didn't know what to expect but Melanie was so great and the house was so cute! The location is literally perfect for parking your car and never having to use it! We...

We went to the Mt. Dora holiday lighting on November 26, 2016. The pre-lighting events began in the park around 4:30pm and the lighting of the 2 million lights in the park was at 6:30. We arrived in Mt Dora around noon that day so we could have lunch at one of the local restaurants and shop in the many...

This was our first visit to Mount Dora, which was on Election Day 2016. Mount Dora is Avery picturesque town. We enjoyed a great meal at one of many very good restaurants. We walked around Lake Dora board walk and historic Lakeside Inn.

This place is amazing, and it was apparent before we even arrived. The innkeeper (Melonie) called the morning of our arrival just to check in with us. She asked if we had any food allergies in preparation for the breakfasts that would be prepared for us during our stay. She was very warm and hospitable. We couldn't wait to get...
