Fully remodeled 1940's cottage 6 blocks from downtown Mt. Dora

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.

About Debbie Fitzgerald

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

Why Debbie Fitzgerald chose Central Florida

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great stay in a great cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Crescent Moon Cottage. Some things we really liked:

- Cottage is in a great location, a short pleasant walk to downtown Mt Dora

- Nice gas grill and well-equipped kitchen

- Two parking spaces in addition to driveway parking

- For coffee lovers, a nice selection of coffee for their keurig with flavored creamers

Everything was in excellent working order. Household items were well stocked - enough to sustain a long stay with no intervention. Cottage was very clean inside and out. Decor was beautiful, cozy and charming. Hosts were friendly and responsive to questions. It was the perfect honeymoon stay. We will definitely be back!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

I was so excited to rent this cottage based on the pictures and I was not disappointed. The perfect layout with comfortably sized rooms and beautiful decorating. Very nice kitchen and bath and extra comfy beds. A short walk to downtown Mt. Dora with all its fun shops and restaurants.

Debbie and Fitz are excellent hosts, providing everything you could possibly want.

We loved Crescent Moon Cottage so much that we have already booked it for another vacation in Mt. Dora.
