Cottage Completely Remodeled in 2015 - Walk to Downtown - "the Dora Dream"

The "Dora dream" was completely remodeled in 2015 but retains the 1925 charm of old time mount Dora. Walk to shopping, dining, and numerous downtown events. This quiet, private location is less than one block off donnelly street in charming mount Dora, Florida. The bead board ceilings and kitchen cabinetry set the tone of this early1900's beauty. Everything from floor to ceiling has been updated in the "Dora dream". Another great feature of this property is plenty of room for RV or boat storage. The cottage was purchased from its original owner in 2015 and has a great deal of history associated with it. Includes CABLE TV and HIGH SPEED INTERNET connection. Will consider one small dog. Call owners to discuss 352-978-8551. This is a cute cottage with a separate full bath. Coffee Pot, Microwave along with a complete kitchen. Plenty of storage for bicycles, personal items etc... ***NEW*** Just added a brand new Washer and Dryer for your convenience....

Why Ray Levy chose Central Florida

The "Dora Dream" is about what is was like to live in a simpler time. Just one half block off Donnelly and a short stroll to shopping dining and the local library. In the 1930's residents would walk by this home on the way to their seasonal work in the orange groves. The previous owner was an important part of the local history. Quiet and private location.

What makes this cottage unique

We have plenty of room for your RV, boat or any large vehicle. It's all brand new. Includes washer and dryer for your convenience. we live nearby if you need anything...

The cottage is very clean and well done. You are close to all of Mt Dora with easy access to rt441 to go anywhere else. Ray and his staff were very helpful with my stay in the cottage and any other information I needed!!!

Quaint, clean, charming Old Florida cottage

  • 5 of 5

Rey's newly renovated cottage retains the charm of old Florida yet provides all the modern conveniences I needed for a few days' getaway. The neighborhood was safe and quiet and the queen bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was surprisingly large! Mt Dora downtown is quite charming, and if the weather has been more friendly, I would have walked into town. Still a short drive away offered numerous dining options (Vitality Bistro was interesting and Fiesta Grande was hopping on Friday afternoon for their happy hour special I imagine). Rey was very accommodating with one small request and I would definitely stay here again. A great get-away for one or two people who like simple living in this adorable cottage with orange trees on the property, like Florida used to be.

Mt. Dora Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the little one room cottage "Dora Dream" was a wonderful retreat. I was able to visit with family and friends in the area and still have my own space, with kitchen to fix meals and a place of work on making my jewelry. The cottage was clean, quiet and great place to get away but still be near restaurants and shops.
