About the property

Our Bungalow on Baker Street has been a favorite destination since 2014. Private Bungalow on a 1/4-acre lot has been beautifully redecorated and fully modernized, located in the heart of Mt. Dora on a picturesque and quiet street. It is just a 5-minute walk (0.4 mile) to downtown and all shops, restaurants and activities. Located one block from Bicycle Trail and Serenity Park. We provide a welcome basket of goodies and bottled water to make you feel at home. Includes long driveway and covered parking.

We decorated the bungalow to ensure our guests feel like it is their home away from home. Park your car, motorcycle or bicycles in the car port. Then settle into a light and airy space. Decorated in warm whites, faux furs, pale grays and mellow yellows. House is composed of a complete living room, fully equipped kitchen (with Keurig coffee maker, coffee pods and toaster), breakfast nook, full bathroom and a wonderfully private master bedroom that overlooks the private back lawn. Accommodations are awesome for a couple traveling and those traveling with small children, second small bedroom with bunk beds available. There is also a furnished screened-in veranda patio. There is basic Cable TV, free wireless internet, Roku (for Netflix and other Internet services) and a DVD player. We also offer a selection of DVDs and a library of good books. Washer & Dryer available. Downtown Mt. Dora is a comfortable 5-minute stroll away.

The Bungalow on Baker Street is a private house on its own 1/4-acre land, and it is all yours. It is in the heart of the Historic District - a picturesque community of older homes. The area is a very quiet, very safe village atmosphere, and perfect for neighborhood walks, cycling and jogging. It is an easy walk to downtown shops, restaurants or lake recreation. The new Serenity Park and bike trail is conveniently located one block from the Bungalow.

Our goal is to meet you on your arrival, give you the key, answer any questions and show you the main operations of the bungalow. Although we live next door, you will only see us if you need to. If asked - we're pleased to answer any questions or suggest a good restaurant.

You'll hear the birds in the morning and not much else. Baker Street is a quiet and safe residential street in the heart of Mt. Dora's Historic District, and is composed of mainly small cottages and older private homes. When you're out walking, people you pass will say "hi", the mailman will tip his hat and the dog walkers will let you pet their pooch. It's that kind of place.

You won't need your car to go downtown. It's a pleasant 5-minute stroll away (0.4 mile). You are welcome to bring your motorcycle, bike, boat, kayak or Segway - they are all accepted forms of transportation here. The bungalow has a covered car port and bikes can be safely kept in the veranda. There are some beautiful scenic roads that wind around the lakes. For the more adventurous, there are boat and bicycle rentals, seaplane trips, Segway tours and more. Upon advanced notice you may request 2 adult bicycles to have available to use during your stay.

On initial booking, we must be advised about the number of people and if a pet will be staying. This is a non-smoking property.

A great place to stAy in Mt Dora!

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was just as perfect the second time around! The hosts thoughtful snacks and necessities that they left us made the stay even better and the location was perfect as it was a nice walk into town and gave us a bit of exercise after our long road trip.
