About Lisa Caravette

Both nurses, we needed a getaway where we could relax, meet new friends and enjoy nature and the Lakefront. We found all of that in Mt. Dora.

Lisa Caravette purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa Caravette chose Central Florida

This house called our name. The vintage charm was exactly what we were looking for. It is what you think of in a home in Mt. Dora. It needed some tender loving care and we gave it that with a lot of hard work but it was worth the effort.

What makes this house unique

The location is absolutely amazing. One short block to downtown, yet on a safe, quiet street. Easy stroll to the lake, fishing dock, lighthouse, kids' park and nature path & boardwalk. Pick up some groceries on the way in, park your car and you never have to drive again!

Pleasant home only a short walk from quaint downtown Mt. Dora

  • 5 of 5

The home is stocked with all the essentials for your stay. Charmingly decorated made our time inside the home as memorable as our time outside. Great dining nearby (walking distance) as well as plenty of shopping. Plenty of space to accommodate 4 to 6 adults.

Adorable house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the treehouse. It was so cute and had everything we needed. Lisa and Peter were so helpful and they provided us with a great list of restaurants and places within walking distance. We wound up not using the car at all while we were in Mt Dora as we could walk to everything. During our stay we felt right at home. We're already thinking about our next trip & a repeat stay at the Treehouse. Thank you Lisa and Peter!

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at The Tree House! It was within a short walking distance to the lake and downtown, which had so many eateries, we had trouble deciding which ones to enjoy during our 4-night stay. The house had plenty of room and all the comforts of home. The backyard was relaxing and a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine. It is about an hour drive to Silver Springs State Park, which was an added bonus to our trip. The owners made sure we were settled and left us water and wine in the fridge. I hope to return again soon!

Second Stay at the Cara Mia Property #433574

  • 5 of 5

We were originally booked for another property (The Tree House #748448) but we were delighted when this house was available for us for the Mount Dora 1/2 Marathon Weekend. The owner moved us over to the Cara Mia. The location is perfect for walking over to the race start & walking back from the race finish. It makes it simple to lead the Grandchildren over to see Mom, Dad & Uncle cross the finish line. The backyard is a real plus with a nice covered deck. We collectively decided we will try to get this house again for next year's 1/2 Marathon. It has become our family tradition.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised - full of character and charm. Location couldn't be better for visiting quaint Mt. Dora with a very short walk one way to downtown and the other to Gilbert Park and the marina. Lisa and Peter were great hosts and even left us a bottle of wine in the frig to start our visit off right!

Just perfect...

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I spent a girls getaway here at the Tree House and it was absolutely perfect!! So close to town, cottage has everything you need and the owners are wonderful. We have been to Mount Dora 4 other times and have started at the inn's and a few B&B's... This by far was our favorite place! We loved being able to lounge and relax when we wanted... Cook our wonderful meals together and just enjoy ourselves. The Christmas decorations were perfect and so was the fabulous marina, right out back, that had the most spectacular lights we have ever seen!! So many wonderful memories... We cannot thank you enough. See you again next year!!

Thank You,

Michelle
