About Wendy Appleby

Although we use to live in Orlando, we always wanted to move to Mt. Dora. With the purchase of a vacation home (Park Cottage) in 2011 and visiting the town on the weekends we soon decided to move to this delightful little town in 2012. With that move came another house for us to renovate, (Beehive Cottage) then about a year later we purchased our third home (Rocking Chair Cottage).

Although Mt Dora has a small town feel, that has been frozen in time, within 2 miles from the heart of town are all the modern restaurants, grocery stores and shops. We love to visit the light house for Sunset and it’s always so nice to be able to walk into town and not have to worry about parking.

We now live just a mile from all of our beautiful homes and are available for any assistance you may need.

We love to shop and dine in downtown Mt Dora and it wouldn’t be unusual to run into us if your there. Don’t hesitate to contact us for the best kept secrets of town.

Wendy Appleby purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

Leave your car in the driveway and enjoy walking into town. This is what small town living is all about.

Quaint, Cozy and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is adorable, just seeing it gave us that warm-all-over feeling. We were so pleased to find the home immaculate and the beds very comfortable. The outdoor area under the gazebo on the deck was fabulous. The home is conveniently located to the historic downtown area of Mount Dora. The owner was so hospitable, leaving a Happy Birthday message and a bottle of wine for us. She even sent a text to check on us and see if we had any questions. This gem was a real find and we'll definitely be back!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in beautiful Mt Dora. The Appleby's where awesome!!! They have a beautiful fully furnished home that we adored staying at for our girls weekend getaway. A welcoming sign with our first names made it even more of a personal experience, with treats, bottle of wind, and beverages. They went above and beyond for accommodations. We will be back. Thank you Wendy

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Mount Dora and the use of this house added to it. The home is comfortable and has everything you could possibly need. Wendy is helpful if you need anything and the location is perfect if you enjoy walking.

Definitely staying again.

Perfect location and a great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Special thanks to Wendy and Tim for all they did to make our March stay wonderful. This cottage had all the necessary cooking items in the kitchen and a good location for the laundry. Our favorite place was the screened porch in the front with the two rocking chairs. We LOVED the location as we were so close to the downtown area and the great ice cream shops! Our only disappointment was that this cottage was already rented for 2018😒? We will be back to the Mt Dora area as there is so much to do. The downtown restaurants were fantastic. Kent and Linda

Very charming and quaint

  • 5 of 5

The one of the owners, Wendy, met us at the cottage. She was very friendly and answered all of our questions. Leaving her contact info, her and Tim (her husband) were quick to respond to any concerns we had. Tim even came over to turn the Christmas lights on (on Christmas eve. The cottage feels cozy and makes you feel at home. It's a short 5 minute walk from downtown. Not sure where to eat? Wendy made a binder with local restaurant menus so people could write reviews on them. With a fire place and 3 different porch areas, this cottage is one my family will return to.

VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5

7 days before Christmas and each day was highlighted by returning to the cottage. Tim and Wendy (owners) had decorated the cottage with lights and 2 Christmas tree(s). The extra touch they provide goes far beyond just a rental. They make it personal and the cottage is pristine in every manner. Walking into town from the cottage is a breeze and the stroll is most enjoyable with quaint settings of a village environment. This choice was a win win for all our party. Save us a return date !!
