About Bill Ainslie

My wife and I, along with our two boys moved to Florida from Upstate NY in 1983 and bought this home in 1984. Besides the main house, where we now reside as empty nesters, there is one upstairs apartment and the cottage. My wife's mother and father lived in the cottage until her dad passed away and her mother moved into an ALF in 2014, which left the cottage empty. We have had the apartment completely remodeled which is now being offered as a vacation rental.

Bill Ainslie purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Bill Ainslie chose Tavares

We're located on a quiet street that is walking distance to the downtown area and it's many restaurants and activities. A short drive and you're in Mount Dora, Eustis, Leesburg and The Villages. We're aprox. an hour drive to all the Orlando attractions and Daytona Beach.

What makes this cottage unique

The area has that small town feeling, but an easy drive to all that Central Florida has to offer.

Very Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little cottage for our short visit to the Leesburg area. We had everything that we needed and had just the right amount of space to move around and spread out. The neighborhood was really quiet so that was nice as well. The bed was a full size bed - my husband is 6'2" but we were fine and it was comfortable! I would stay here again!

Sweet little comfortable apartment...

We booked here to get away for a couple of days and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean and comfortable, just blocks from downtown Tavares! Loved seeing all the Christmas decorations and the children getting ready for the Polar Express. Grateful for a relaxing getaway!

Cozy and Clean

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your property. The cottage was centrally located to everything we wanted to do. First impressions go a long way, the place was clean and well kept. However, the next time we visit Mt. Dora we expect to see at least a queen size bed! The bike fest at Mt. Dora was lovely. It was a nice get a way for me and my husband. BTW - thank you for the table fan! Many blessings Marta & Charles

Owner's Response: Thanks choosing Fox Haven Cottage for your stay and we appreciate the positive comments. I know the bed was a tight fit for your 6'3" husband. A queen size bed is on our wish list as well since we have done some revisions to the bedroom to make room for a larger bed. We look forward to your next visit. Bill & Betty
