Dickerman Cottage is the best! It is close to downtown and all the amenities, restaurants, and shopping. John is the perfect host. We would definitely stay there again.

This was our first time in Mount Dora and our stay at Dickerman Cottage made it well worth the trip. It's walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Also, John was quick to respond to any of our needs. Thanks again!

Beautiful cottage 5 minute walk to downtown

  • 5 of 5

I have booked many rentals through VRBO and this is the best. Clean, quiet, private, with outdoor space and minutes to all the shops and restaurants of Mount Dora. The decor is romantic, yet comfortable, the kitchen has all the appliances and utensils for dinner in. But you will want to eat out most of the time as Mount Dora has some great restaurants. The town policy of NO chains downtown allows individual restaurants and boutiques prosper. The many special events (2 festivals while we were there) give added excitement to this tiny gem of a town. Walk the streets, enjoy the architecture and the history.

We totally enjoyed staying in the Dickerman Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much we have rented it again for next year. It has everything you need. The outdoor private patio space is ideal. The location is great for walking to town and enjoying all Mt. Dora has to over.
