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 Central Florida

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.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

Fox Haven Cottage is a little gem! Very clean and comfortable. Perfect get-away. We love it and the area. Bill and Betty are the best hosts. I'm sure we'll be back sometime in the near future. I would highly recommend this little place.

Cozy & Affordable

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this cottage.. What a great find. It had everything we needed. Full kitchen, toaster, coffee pot, Refrig., gas stove., it even had coffee...With a family of 4 we had plenty of space . I loved to be able to make full meals for my family instead of eating out for the 5 nights we were there. It's centrally locate to everything. About 45 minutes to Orlando. The trip there wasn't bad at all. The price on the cottage was unbeatable. I hope this cottage is available for our next visit!!

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The owners pay attention to detail and provided everything I needed for a pleasant 10 day stay. A very quiet and convenient location.

I am originally from the area and the cottage is centrally located near my family. It provided a place for me to come "home" to after visiting with family for the Thanksgiving Holiday and celebrating our grandson's 2nd birthday.

Awesome place and great location

  • 5 of 5

What a nice little find. We went to meet family members which this location was about half way for each. The cottage is very well maintained and stocked. If there is something you don't have ask Betty or Bill and they will provide. We appreciate the screened in patio as it was wonderful to sit out and watch the birds frequent the feeders.

Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable. And Mt. Dora is a must!!!! We will definitely be back!!!
