About Margaret

I am an Interior designer/ architect and I love to travel. I have lived in many great cities (NYC, Aspen, Miami, and LA) and I always come back here. I use VRBO wherever I go. It's the greatest way to really get to know how the locals live, find the best restaurants, and explore original walking communities.

Margaret purchased this guest house in 2004

Why Margaret chose Thornton Park

Orlando is a great city. I grew up here. Whenever I leave Orlando, I am reminded of the great weather and ease of living here. I can walk everywhere and there is always something interesting going on.

What makes this guest house unique

Great local neighborhood vibe! Walk to dining, shopping, boutiques, and Sunday farmer's market. Enjoy the close proximity to Lake Eola, Downtown Orlando, Amway center, Performing Arts Center & movie theaters. 30-45 minutes to the Beach, Disney Area & Theme Parks & Convention Center.

Hard to find Gem in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 13 days at this location. The house was perfect for the two of us. Walking distance to great food, groceries and eclectic area. Given the location the property is still very private and quiet. The bed was the most comfortable mattress we had ever slept on, even asked for the brand so we could purchase the same mattress.

The owner Margaret was very prompt with any questions or needs we had. We hope to stay here annually.

Cozy and central location, perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

The property is cozy and very central if wanting to stay near downtown Orlando. The neighborhood is very nice and close to restaurants, cafes and shops. Also very close to Lake Eola where one can go for a walk or exercise.

Super cute property! Loved the style and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four days and were out and about for most of the days but coming "home" at night was great. Full kitchen with new appliances and most of what you need was great. Bed and pillows were super comfortable and it was nice having access to laundry if we needed it. We really enjoyed staying here and look forward to staying again when we're in town! Margaret was attentive and very helpful! Great place to stay!

FANTASTIC location

  • 4 of 5

Thorton Park is a great place to live. Walking distance to great bars & restaurants and Sunday Farmers Market at Lake Eola. House is great for 2 - more would be tight. Street parking was never an issue. Quiet home with easy access to all of downtown Orlando.

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for the month March. It is a very comfortable house. The view from upstairs is like being in a tree house. I enjoyed the courtyard fr reading and visiting with friends. Margaret is amazing. She is very knowledgeable about the area and can help with every need. The location is great for walking. I will stay here next year.
