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!

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.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Cute house & great location. All the shops and restaurants are within a few minutes walking distance. The owners were great too! Even when there was a small issue (which was completely out of their control) they immediately remedied the problem. They even followed up to make sure I was satisfied. Looking forward to staying here again on my next visit to Mount Dora.

Clean, Comfortable & Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse was perfect for us! There was plenty of room, it was very clean and had all the basics we needed to be comfortable. The location is terrific and walking distance to the park, lighthouse, dining and more. We will definitely stay here again!

Lovely place to stay in Mount Dora

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend renting this beautiful home if you plan to stay in the Mount Dora area. It really felt like my home away from home. It was clean and well supplied with needed kitchen items, and washing/drying capabilities. I had never been to Mount Dora and it was such a nice quiet town with so many shops and restaurants to explore. We walked to the downtown/waterfront area just 1 block away. We enjoyed the 4th of July fireworks and parade! We also went antiquing and found a few really neat local places where we spent a whole day looking around. I travel a lot for work and usually stick to staying in a specific hotel chain to keep my gold/diamond status active, but I fell in love with this option of renting a house. Overall it was a cheaper option for us as we could cook our own food and wash our clothes instead of having to go out to eat for every meal and find a laundromat. And I didn't have pay for 2 rooms for my family - instead this home had enough bedrooms to fit all of us!
