Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Mount Dora - The Bunny Hutch, Mt Dora, Fl.

Bright And Airy With 1 Bedroom And 1 Bath, Comfortable And Quiet Setting

This cozy cottage is set back from the street & offers a quiet location with giant oaks and fruit trees. Special details throughout make this a 'one of a kind gem' Step back in time, feel like you have left the world behind. Newly renovated with vintage touches. We have designed this cottage to be a comfortable little retreat: 6 blocks, 10 minute walk to town. Two porches make this tiny home feel roomy, with a comfortable main room with a kitchen nook and breakfast area. Take your coffee out onto the porch where a day bed awaits for relaxing or reading. The bedroom offers 2 comfortable twin beds and the renovated bath room features a claw foot tub with a shower. Wireless wi-fi and a TV for relaxing and watching DVD's. There is a nice back yard, plenty of room for parking and we suggest bringing bikes for exploring, but just walking around Mount Dora's cottage community is delightful.

About Allura Henderson

I grew up in Florida and my family has lived there since the 1960's. My parents lived outside of Orlando but retired to Mount Dora 10 years ago because of it's charm and slower pace of life. We purchased this cottage to be close to my parents when we came to visit them. We have already enjoyed many family times here and we hope that our guests will enjoy it as we do.

Allura Henderson purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Allura Henderson chose Central Florida

This cottage was handed down through time from relatives who took good care of it and decided to completely renovate it. When we first walked inside I knew it was a perfect fit. It has been fun to do the finishing touches that the family started: completely rewired, repainted, new roof new HVAC, saving the special touches and adding a few twists of our own. Our family loves getting away from it all with visits to this darling cottage and quaint town.

What makes this cottage unique

The Bunny Hutch reminds one of a little Maine Coast cottage, but the winter here offers orange trees and windows open to tropical breezes. (There is heat in the main cottage and comforters on the beds for cold nights). Being close to downtown you can go for a stroll for morning coffee and get home in time for a nap on the sun porch. The town of Mount Dora offers many wonderful festivals and fairs, check the website for local activities.

Great Place to Stay!!

The cottage was very clean, cozy, nicely decorated and close to the craft fair -- our reason for being in Mount Dora. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to our family and friends.

Best rental we've had

  • 5 of 5

We spent five months at this wonderful cottage. The location was perfect for walking to downtown Mount Dora.

The neighbours were great. The cottage itself was comfortable and spotless. I loved the front verandah where I

could relax and read. We would certainly recommend it to anyone (and we have!) and would certainly come back.

One of our favourite spots was Pisces Rising for watching the sunsets and meeting people who became friends.

Also, another spot was The Village Coffee Pot for great coffee and social gathering.

Just writing this review brings back wonderful memories of our time at The Bunny Hutch.

Cute cottage with a lovely sunny deck for morning coffee and evening cocktails

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is an excellent value for your stay in Mt. Dora. It is about 6 blocks to the downtown area and is a delightful walk past many historic homes. The cottage is immaculate and the owner was very accommodating to our need for an early check-in after a very long journey. We would stay there again.

Nice little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a very well organized, and clean cottage not too far from downtown, although it was a good walk. The cottage was spotless, and the beds comfortable. The 2-night stay was perfect for us. Quiet neighborhood, with nice neighbors.

Once I got used to the unusual ROKU TV setup it was ok. (Needed the Saturday ESPN NCAA Football fix.)

We used the French Press for coffee, but would have preferred a drip coffee maker.

Could not have picked a better place if we tried. Everything was absolutely perfect. Walking distance from downtown, netflix, comfy furniture, adorable features, vintage yet highly functional and efficient plumbing and appliances. This place was perfect price, location, and..well perfect everything. We will certainly be back.

Car: recommended

One of our favorite walks is a beautiful board walk along Lake Dora called Palm Island, from which you can view beautiful wildlife where we have spotted a pair of bald eagles, baby alligators and one very large Gator who patrols the area.
