Lovely place. Quiet. Very Victorian. Large collection of original "Highwaymen" paintings. Also noted original Icart! Many collectibles to admire. Walking distance to restaurants and nice shopping. Do try the Segway and the Lake Dora canal tour.

Randy and Margie owners have run this many years. It's not a motel or hotel it's their home, you can choose where to eat in local Mt Dora many types of cuisine. A special breakfast is prepared by Randy it begins at 8 for coffee, fruit about 9 and food around10. Randy has many stories and there are various antique...

We just returned from a two day getaway and let me tell you, it was so hard to leave, Randy and Margie are the best hosts we have ever encountered. They not only made as feel at home, but also pampered to the core. They have made us feel we just steeped into this surreal world of tranquility, peace and...

We just returned from a 3 day get away, we were guests at the beautiful Heron Cay B & B. The reservations on the phone w Margie went very easy, we receive an email w confirmation and directions to their home. We arrived early, but were welcomed to leave our items and walk a short distance into town. We loved...

We needed to get out of dodge and I wanted a fireplace! Even though our room did not have one, our gracious host lit the fireplace in the sitting area for us and stoked it as long as we needed. Our room was surprisingly spacious and very clean. Breakfast consisted of baked sweet bread, fruit, and a hot entree. Coffee...

I think for the price they need to clean it better and keep up with repairs. Not worth going and spending money on when they have better B&B in the town. They have many dogs so going out side to use pool was not an option.

Pure revenge . . . This past guest had cancelled their reservation multiple times; the last time was the morning of their arrival for a weekend visit. Heron Cay’s policy is: ‘to reschedule your visit to a more convenient date, if you cancel at least 7 days prior to your arrival date’ (and we usually do it most other times)...

Just shared a very nice, 2 night stay at Heron Cay with myself & 7 sorority sisters. We booked both 3rd floor rooms so we could all be together. We enjoyed the sitting area of the Queen Victoria suite where we could all sit together, talk & laugh. There were wine glasses & a corkscrew in each suite, along with...

My husband and I just visited this B&B and thought it was lovely. The rooms were large and comfortable, and the proprietors were helpful and very friendly. I am completely confused by the reviewer who "walked away hungry". We came downstairs early, and got coffee and amazing (and still warm) homemade banana bread. A nicely arranged platter of fresh fruit...

We have visited this fine B&B twice before, and always have a wonderful time. This is the first time visiting at Christmas and neither the town of Mt Dora, nor Heron Cay disappointed. Both were decked out in traditional finery, and we spent two days enjoying the ambiance. The park in the center of downtown, especially, must be seen at...

The establishment was lovely and very well-maintained. It was within walking distance from the downtown district - a "plus" as traffic and parking there was tough. The only down side was the "never-ending" breakfast. Coffee wasn't put out till 8:00, then fruit at 9:00, then a casserole (no choices) at 10:00. Starting the day at 10:30 is not what most...

Most of our guests enjoy our casual breakfast/brunch and prefer the later times, they are on vacation and downtown does not open up until 10:30 or 11am; we offer 8am continental breakfast . . . Guests are told about our breakfast/brunch on our website and when their reservation is made, they are again notified of the breakfast / brunch service...
