We just loved staying in the cottage. It was very charming, impeccably clean, had all the amenities a guest ever needed or wanted. It was close to town, shopping and all the restaurants. After all our exertions it was delightful to return to the cottage.

Elaine was just wonderful to work with, she kept us updated on Matthew and quickly responded to all our inquires prior to our arrival.

We will definitely visit Mt. Dora again and hopefully have the pleasure of renting the cottage again.

Thank you for a wonderful getaway.

fully surpassed my expectations

  • 5 of 5

Location allowed easy asscess on foot or bike to downtown, 6 public tennis courts, library, fantastic restaurants, and activites on the lake such as boat excursions and "seaplane" ride. The owner was fully responsive. The property assistant went beyond the call of duty - multiple times - to assure my wants and needs were met. I would have stayed there for a whole year but it wasn't available for the long term of my desires.

We just loved this little cottage! It was quaint and comfortable and we absolutely adored our stay here. The owner (Dan) and host (Elaine) are both friendly and easy to get in touch with (Elaine was super friendly and helpful!). This was a perfect size place for our little family of four during our weekend getaway to Mount Dora. It is in a perfect location -- just a couple of blocks from the boat ramp to Lake Dora and close to downtown. The home was clean and adorable, with plenty of extras provided to make our stay comfortable. Especially loved Dan's wonderful artwork throughout the house. We definitely plan to come back and would recommend this place for small families, couples and just about anyone!

Wonderful Bungalow! This is Ideal

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend stay at this bungalow so much that we hated to leave. It felt welcoming from the minute we walked through the door. It is beautifully appointed in all regards, including examples of the owner's creative artwork. Everything was spotlessly clean. It has every amenity we needed and then some: excellent beds & bedding, plenty of pillows, quality towels, every item you might want in the kitchen. The bathroom had small bottles of shampoo, lotion, soaps, toothpastes. The bungalow also had all the usual cleaning supplies, paper products, cleaning sprays, and dishwashing & laundry detergent. The host provides an assortment of local info, restaurant menus, brochures on things to do. The WiFi worked well & they even have Netflix available for the TV.

In the kitchen there were various condiments, a huge selection of gourmet herbs, olive oils & vinegars from a Mt. Dora specialty shop, an assortment of basics like mustard & mayo. Even a vegetarian cookbook which was perfect for us. That was a pleasant perk! The host leaves fresh milk, coffee, English muffins, some jams, to get you started. The dishes were even attractive Bobby Flay items and excellent quality flatware, knives, glasses & bowls. As nicely appointed as you'd expect in your own home. We did not find anything lacking. There is a small office alcove with desk & printer.

For those not familiar with Mt. Dora & who have trouble finding parking, we found that using the lot at Baker St. & 4th was convenient, and always found easy street parking around 3rd St. & Baker. Be sure to visit the unique setting & warm welcoming atmosphere at Norm's Palette for wine & tapas! Then it's an easy walk though the old historic district shops. We especially liked Julianne's Coastal Cottage shop to sample free iced smoothies (made with delicious wine if you like) & view her unique items. Great place to get advance gifts for holiday time or birthdays.

The resident host for this bungalow was so pleasant and quick to communicate, greeted us upon arrival. We would positively stay here again, and I'd give it more than 5 stars.

Wonderful Quaint House in Mount Dora

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house. We have stayed in many different houses throughout the country, and we truly felt like this one was the best. It was well stocked and clean. They left little baskets of goodies for you as well, even left us breakfast for the first morning. Elaine was very accommodating, and very nice. I read a review that said the bedding and pillows were not comfortable, but we had no problem thought they were very comfortable, got some great sleep while there. The front porch was perfect to sit on and watch the world go by. Close to the park. Will go back as soon as we can.
