About Lynne Carroll

I have lived in USA for 10 years, coming here to get married to my college sweetheart in 2005. We love our house in Mt Dora and we'd like to share it!

Lynne Carroll purchased this bungalow in 2015

Why Lynne Carroll chose Mount Dora

This is such a beautiful place to be!

What makes this bungalow unique

Take a lakeside stroll morning and evening and see otters, bald eagles, pileated woodpeckers, a host of birds and even rabbits. A great way to start and end the day, watching the sun over the water.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Location for us was key and this home was perfect! Bonus it was a beautiful, comfortable and newly renovated home. We never expected all the home had to offer: Close to everything! We traveled to many locations and when we came back it felt like home. We enjoyed the lanai which is large and faces the beautiful sunset. We were able to enjoy the quiet feel of a neighborhood and the walking trails were well travelled. It was a wonderful experience one we hope to repeat next year.

Mt Dora VRBO

  • 5 of 5

I was nervous because this house didn't have any reviews yet but it was perfect!! The house is spotless and the owner has thought of everything. The location was perfect for getting to Renninger's Antiques and downtown. An added bonus I didn't even know about when renting was the close proximity to the lake. The path around the lake is beautiful. Will definitely rent again when I'm in the area.

Mt Dora VRBO

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely wonderful home! Had a fabulous time in Mt Dora. I want to keep the home our secret, but need to share. Three bedrooms, two baths, located about one mile from downtown. The new lanai adds such a great touch! Would definitely return and, hopefully, stay longer than a week! Thanks so much to the owners for opening up their home to us!

Mount Dora is a beautiful little artsy town, full of small shops, great restaurants and right on Lake Dora. Mount Dora is in Lake County which, as its name suggests, is full of beautiful lakes. It is a great place from which to explore; take a boat trip from Mt Dora to explore other lakes and canals, see the Manatees at Blue Spring State Park and take an eco tour along the St John's River.

Go rummaging for antiques and collectibles at Renningers Huge Antiques Mall and Flea Market ( 5 minutes away by car)

The Space Coast is due East from Mount Dora with all the attractions it has to offer.

See the wonderful collection of Tiffany Glass in the Museum in Winter Park, a short ride away.

Spend days in Mount Dora itself, shopping, riding the train along the Orange Blossom trail, enjoying the sunshine on the terraces of the cafes, cycle the many trails around the area and enjoy the weekend festivals that Mount Dora is famous for!
