About Florentine Fragoso

I grew up in New England and I have lived in Florida for 28 yrs and I fell like when I moved to Mount Dora to open my primitive antigue shop it just felt like home, I have 27 yrs in the grocery business and I was a chef at a private school for 2 yrs. I love the community and arts and culture we have here ,It's a great place to live and visit.

Florentine Fragoso purchased this house in 2014

Why Florentine Fragoso chose Central Florida

This historical 1920's house was originally a boarding house.It has been a pottery place a bead shop and a primitive shop. I have tried to preserve its beauty and culture.It's a great old house with a lot of character,and charm.

What makes this house unique

This property has a amazing large front porch that over looks town.Beautiful oak trees.Original hard wood floors. Great clawfoot tub.Awesome old world charm.Its like stepping back in time.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and we had a lovely family vacation

Tina is a warm and kind hostess and she was very helpful with advice to make the most of our stay in Mt. Dora. I have recommended her cottage to friends and we plan on a return visit

Meant to Bee Inn

  • 5 of 5

From the second we pulled up to the Meant to Bee in, my family was thrilled. The location was perfect for walking into town, and my kids loved all of the unique touches in the home. It was spacious, while still having the flavor of an old home. Tina left goodies, and the home was clean and well cared for. Perfect mini vacation!

Wonderful! Quaint Inn

  • 5 of 5

This was a very pleasant place to stay. I was concerned after learning the house is actually located on the Second Story of an antique store. My fears were quickly tossed aside after meeting Tina the lovely owner of the Busy Bee Inn. She was incredibly pleasant, the store below is meticulously decorated and the Busy Bee Inn is just as comfortable as staying at home. Overall an incredibly enjoyable experience, thank you for having us.

Cute upstairs unit in a vintage Mt Dora house

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were fantastic! The unit is a beautifully restored unit of an old vintage boarding house. Everything was clean and meticulously decorated. We even got a complementary bottle of wine, which we enjoyed out on the veranda overlooking the quaint streets only two blocks from downtown Mount Dora. There is a high-quality antique shop downstairs which was also fun to browse. No doubt we will be staying there again!
