1 bedroom 2 bath second floor apartment located above garage is situated on unique one acre home ( the second bedroom is currently set up as an office). For your comfort the apartment is fully equipped with all essential items you have at home. There is a full laundry room located downstairs in a separate building, a few steps away for your convenience. The Marina for access to Lake Dora is only 3/4 miles away so bring your boat, we have plenty of parking for your RV and water toys. If you like antiques there are several antique malls nearby including Renninger's Antique Center that hosts several extravaganza events each year. Mt Dora hosts many events each year to include art festivals, craft fairs, seafood fest, blueberry festival, and the Sailboat Regatta to name a few. If you like July 4th fireworks, our property is located across from Lake Dora so no need to go anywhere to enjoy the festivities, just pull up a lawn chair and enjoy. Please feel free to spend Christmas in Mt Dora and enjoy the spectacular Christmas lights, shows, and parades. If you don't feel like walking or driving the 1 mile to downtown you will have access to bicycles which are available for your use or a golf cart taxi, which is convenient and affordable. Take a train to nearby Tavares and/ or Eustis to enjoy the restaurants and activities those cities provide. Please feel free to bring 1 small dog we love our furry four-legged friends, sorry no cats. The guest house is no-smoking, however there is a downstairs outdoor patio area for you to hangout and relax. You will enjoy the beautiful view and sunsets over Lake Dora as well as the secluded privacy our property offers. Mt Dora Golf Club is also located 1 block away. This property is in close proximity to Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Port Canaveral Cruise Ships, Kennedy Space Center, The Beaches, and Orlando International Airport. I have included a picture of our home taken from the road to assist with locating the address.

About Jon Pierce
Hello, My Name is Jon and have lived in the Central Florida Area most of my life. I grew up in Titusville and was heavily involved with the Space program as my father and mother both worked at NASA. I first became exposed to the Mt Dora area as I attended my senior year of High School in Mt Plymouth. The school was the old Mt Plymouth Hotel which was a destination of the rich and famous back in the day such Al Capone, Babe Ruth, and Kate Smith. The hotel was eventually converted into a boarding school. While attending college in Orlando I met my lovely wife< Adriene, of 33 years, we have worked in Orlando ever since. We would frequently take the short drive to Mt Dora as we loved the small town feel, antiques, restaurants, vintage homes, and activities. We decided that one day we would retire and move to Mt Dora. Well although not yet retired, we decided to make the move and have enjoyed every minute of living in our new home and city.
Jon Pierce purchased this Guest House in 2015
Why Jon Pierce chose Mt Dora
My wife and I purchased this property due to the unique features, charm, and history. Mt Dora was a frequent destination to us which we fell in love with. The activities, festivals, dining, and small town charm attracted us to our new home. Wish we had moved here sooner.
What makes this Guest House unique
We enjoy this property due to the privacy we enjoy even though we are located only 1 mile from downtown. We have a birds eye view of Lake Dora and the gorgeous sunsets. Check out the pictures
