About Crissy

I grew up in upstate New York and moved to Florida in 1994 to attend Stetson University. I have called Mount Dora home since 2005 and I can't ever see myself leaving this beautiful little town. Mount Dora is one of the few cities I've lived in where you don't feel like life is passing you by. We're a sleepy little town yet we have so much going on-ALL THE TIME! My partner and I own the bookstore downtown so pop in and say hello!

Crissy purchased this house in 2005

Why Crissy chose Central Florida

The first time I came to Mount Dora I knew it was where I would buy my first home. Without doing my homework I managed to pick the perfect street to live on. It's a beautifully kept, quiet cul de sac yet still close enough to enjoy downtown. The home was just built in 2004 yet the location gives it a historic charm.

Warm Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home provided the perfect location and amenities for our six week stay. The cozy, clean, and well appointed house is perfect and our host, Crissy, even welcomed us with homemade grapefruit jam. She was available for any questions or needs and provided suggestions for restaurants and local activities. Our two collies made themselves right at home and enjoyed our regular walks downtown or just hanging out in the backyard. We've already booked for next winter.

Warm and Welcoming Rental Home on quiet street

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this 2 bedroom, 2 bath home on a quiet cul-de-sac. This is a pet friendly home and is well maintained. It is close to town and the hostess made sure all of our needs were met, she even had homemade jam waiting for us with a welcome note. We were very impressed, and would not hesitate to recommend this rental to our friends and family.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a top notch place to stay in Mount Dora, look no further. This is no ordinary rental, it is really a home away from home. And the fact that it is pet friendly made it a perfect choice for us. From the time of our arrival to our departure, we were so impressed with our hostess and the cleanliness of the home. It was fully stocked with everything we needed and even more. The decor was so fresh and clean that we felt like we were the first people to stay there. Our hostess was very responsive to our questions and offered a number of dining suggestions when we asked. It is obvious that Mount Dora is a special place to her and she was delighted to share it with us. All we had to do was relax and enjoy. We simply can't say enough about our stay. We left already planning a return trip and we will definitely stay here!

Quick responses to text messages and email. Beautiful comfortable home! Quiet location at the end of a cul-de-sac. We will definitely stay here again! Airport lost my bag with hair flat iron in it and owner let me use hers! We were a family of 5, 3 kids 2 adults and fit us pretty good.

Can't say enough.....

  • 5 of 5

Can not say enough wonderful things about our stay!!!!!!!

The house was very clean, in a great location. All the furniture and appliances looked brand new. Loved there was coffee and condiments waiting after a long trip. The house was WELL stocked, owner has thought of every little detail which makes such a difference!

Mount Dora is a beautiful town. House is a very short distance to the downtown area, which I highly recommend visiting! Loved shopping at the local stores downtown, visiting the waterfront, and playing on playground. They even played a movie on the lawn one night.

The location is great for day trips. We visited Daytona, Orlando, the springs and even Tampa all in driving distance.

Owner was amazing to work with!!!!!!! She responds very quickly to any question or problem you may have. Highly recommend stopping by her store to pick up a great book for the drive home.

Already thinking about our next visit here! Even our teenage son asked if we could stay longer!!!!

This will be our only vacation home when visiting central Florida!!!! Hope to make an annual visit, if not more :-)
