Amazing vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a restful, home like place to spend our Christmas vacation. I highly recommend Dickerman Cottage for anyone who likes their own place, not a cookie cutter hotel room. The cottage has such personality! We were near our children and grandchildren, and had enough space for a brunch on Christmas Eve. The owner had lights on in case we arrived after dark, there were plenty of towels and special touches. Four different kinds of coffee makers to fit your taste. The lights and Christmas tree downtown was fun, and make sure to get pizza from Pizza Amoré. We will definitely stay there again.

Charming cottage perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

I was taken in immediately as I walked in the door. What a perfectly charming cottage. Not even rain could spoil the sense of relaxation I felt in that place. In fact even if it's going to rain, this is where you want to be. Every room felt comfortable and homey. Loved the beach decor and elegant simplicity. Everything you need is there. Looking forward to the next time.

This was our third visit to "The Dickerman". We found everything sparkling clean. We love the new floors this year.

We enjoyed grilling out and walking into Mt. Dora.

We would recommend the Golblin Market, Pisces Rising, & Cody's. Food and service exceptional in every way.

We will return.

Thank you for everything. As always, perfect in every way.
