Enjoy the charm of the Crescent Moon Cottage, a fully remodeled 1940’s cottage in the Historic District, just blocks away from all the action in downtown Mt. Dora. It has the charm of the past and the conveniences of today. FYI, please check out the availability of our newest cottage the Harvest Moon Cottage - Listing # 810352)
Enjoy a relaxing getaway, in the fully furnished, 2 bedrooms, one bath, 1200 sqft Cottage. Begin your day with a cup of coffee on the lovely enclosed sun porch or on the private back patio. Stretch your legs with a six block walk to the center of town. Browse the quaint boutiques and shops, have lunch at one of the many cafes, bars and restaurants. As you sit and rest your feet on a bench in Donnelly Park, view the sunset over the lake at the Mt. Dora Lighthouse, or catch a play at the Ice House Theatre.
For dinner, prepare a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen, and serve it in the vintage style dining room. Then as the night winds down, cozy up to a good book in an overstuffed chair in the living room. For the person that needs to be ‘connected’ the cottage is fully wired with cable and Wi-Fi.
As you succumb to sleep, climb into the king size bed in the master bedroom or one of two twin beds in the guest bedroom.
You will certainly enjoy all that the beautiful, quaint town, of Mount Dora has to offer.
Although my husband and I grew up in Central New Jersey, we raised our three children in South Florida. For a period of time, the family was spread along the east coast from Florida to Connecticut. It wasn't until 2012, when the Navy transferred my son to Cape Canaveral, that we thought, this would be the perfect opportunity to re-locate to Central Florida. My youngest daughter was living in Orlando with her husband, and was attending UCF at the time. So, in December of that year, my husband and I moved from New Jersey to Eustis, FL and now, we enjoy our family being within driving distance of one another.
Since moving to Lake County we have fallen in love with the area especially, Mt Dora, just one town over. We love that there is always something happening on the 'Mount', from the festivals, to parades and races.
Debbie Fitzgerald purchased this house in 2014
Since Mt. Dora fits our lifestyle, we decided it would be our retirement town. So a year or so ago, we started wandering the streets looking for the perfect neighborhood to purchase a retirement home. We wanted a small mid-century home in the Historic District, on the parade route, close to town, that provided cottage style living.
Last summer we found the perfect house sooner than we expected; the Crescent Moon Cottage. Although we didn't expect to buy our retirement home at this time, we decided it was exactly what we were looking for and we'd probably never get another opportunity to purchase it.
So in April 2014 we became the proud owners of the Crescent Moon Cottage.
Every time I enter the Crescent Moon Cottage, a sense of calm comes over me. I'm not sure if it's the morning sun streaming in, or the coziness and comfort of the sun porch, or maybe the beautiful wood floors reminding me of the house I grew up in, all I know is, when I'm there, I'm home. And you will be too.
The Crescent Moon Cottage was a wonderful place to have a moms getaway. The cottage is beautifully decorated but still comfortable. We spent a good amount of time hanging out in the living room. There were plenty of comfortable beds for our party. It was so nice to have a kitchen to keep snacks and drinks. We even cooked breakfast one morning. The bathroom is nicely done but would benefit from some extra hooks or racks to hang the towels. We had an issue with not being able to connect to the WIFI when we arrived. Debbie and her husband came over and fixed it for us right away. They are really nice people. The cottage is in a great location. It was a quick walk downtown to the shops and restaurants. It was also a short drive to Reninger's. We truly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful cottage and would thoroughly recommend it.
We were lucky enough to once again stay at Crescent Moon Cottage. It's a charming home - lovely decor, plenty of space, full size kitchen and easy walk to downtown activities and shopping. Also really appreciate Debbie's quick response to our request to stay and also connection for any of our other needs. Thank you! We had a great week-end.
Your cottage brought just the right amount of nostalgia mixed with modern convenience that any vacationer would enjoy while visiting Mt. Dora. The cottage was in a perfect location, clean and beautifully decorated. We will definitely be back and in fact are already planning our next trip up. It was truly magical!!
This is a great property and Debbie and her husband were very helpful . You can walk to everything that Mt Dora has to offer. We had no problems and Debbie was very easy to work with.
Debbie and Fitz were so good to us. Made us feel so special. The home was spotless and well appointed. We all told Debbie she should publish a book showing how beautifully she decorates. If you like the HGTV show "Fixer Upper" you will love the decor. She supplied us with coffee and drinks in the fridge, a basket of snacks, large fluffy towels, and comfy beds. I would have to say that our favorite room to hang out in was the sunroom (that was air conditioned). We would sit out there with our cocktails after a long day at the craft show and watch the people walk by. Can't wait to stay again in the near future. Thank you again Debbie and Fitz.
We did not want to leave this beautiful cottage. It is situated in a great location, easy to find with ample parking. Everything is impeccable, details could be found all throughout the cottage. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of towels and toiletries for use. The kitchen was fully stocked and not one detail was overlooked. In the fridge was wine and beer for our enjoyment along with a gallon of water and lots of chips, pretzels and cookies to eat. There was a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of coffees to select and filtered water. There were also lots of information on things to do, restaurants to visits and instructions for house use. This cottage had everything. Publix was very close along with other stores nearby. We will definitely come again and recommend to all of our friends. The owner was also very attentive and concern. We loved this place.
