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.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was updated and very clean. We loved the privacy of the large back yard deck and plenty of seating with table and chairs for meals. Close to downtown which was nice. We were a group of 5 women and we had plenty of space. It was a great place!

Great house near downtown Mount Dora

  • 5 of 5

The house is within a short walk of all the restaurants, bars, and shops in Mount Dora. The house is very comfortable and decorated very nicely with all the features we needed for our stay. We will hopefully be back for another stay.

Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Mt Dora. Having a beautiful cozy space to retreat to made our weekend all the more enjoyable. We shared the cottage with another couple and we were very comfortable. The cottage was very clean, well appointed, and cozy yet plenty of room. We will definitely be back!
