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 Mount Dora

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!

Where to begin?

  • 5 of 5

Oh my goodness! We spent the weekend at this beautiful old home, and I'm pretty certain we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. It was our first time in Mount Dora, and we loved every minute. The home was cozy, comfortable, and certainly special. We spent more time out and about, but enjoyed the house so much. So close to everything, we had fabulous meals, had our first lobster roll, wonderful breakfast at the loft, and went on the Premiere Boat Tour right around the corner. The tour was a blast. 28.00 a person and definitely worth it. After talking with the town people, we are planning a trip during the holidays, for sure. My fingers are crossed that we will be able to stay in The Treehouse again once we lock down our dates. Thank You so much for sharing your treasured home.

Loved staying here. So comfy and the decor is fun. The sunroom was so cute. We had coffee on the patio each morning and walked to the lighthouse for the sunset each eve. Thank you Lisa and Peter, and daughter, for providing such a wonderful house.

Perfect Cottage in the Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, spacious cottage with 3 bedrooms - it was very comfortable and fit our group of five perfectly. Great location - It is in walking distance to downtown, Lake Dora, and the park where all the festivals are held. We would definitely stay here again!

Very charming and incredibly well-located

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two boys had a lovely 2-night stay here. We could walk everywhere and also enjoyed cooking a meal and dining at home one evening. The beds were comfortable and the place was very clean. We look forward to coming back the next time we visit Mount Dora. Thank you so much!!

Great relaxing place close to town

  • 5 of 5

After researching numerous places to stay in the Mt. Dora area, I'm so glad we stayed here. It was perfect way to kick off our Christmas Holiday. We stayed 5 days and 4 nights and enjoyed all the festivities that the town offered. We only had to walk 2-3 blocks away and we were close to everything. The 1888 house is clean and well decorated. There are nice sitting areas in the back of the house, under the trees. We felt very welcomed as the owners provided us with a couple bottles of water in the frig and a complimentary bottle of wine. Thank you Lisa and Peter for offering such a wonderful place to stay. We will be back again.
