About the property

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.

Cute, Quaint Little Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for all the love you put into this cottage! Our long weekend stay was perfect! It's amazing how many necessities you made available for your guests. We seemed to have everything we needed and then some.

Notes: Very Clean! Walking Distance to quite a few places and downtown. Mermaid Juice beer garden was perfect walking distance :) Great Couples Retreat. We didn't even watch TV...

It was a pleasure staying at your property!

it's your little home

  • 5 of 5

it is your little home while your there. we stayed 19 days. we cooked, we sat on the porch each and every day. we ate in town now and again. we slept well which is not always or ever the case. there was always help from next door or across the street.the cottage is decorated in an eclectic homey style with old, new. not enough pots for us as it was such a long stay. but certainly more than enough for a weeks stay or so. each transaction was easy. it was a great choice and we would recommend it to old, young, active, not active. a lovely easy stay.

Great Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Gilbert Park
"Head down to Gilbert Park and walk along Lake Dora, then head through the gates and explore ..."
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.
