I can't express enough my appreciation for Gwendolyn and Dennis and the way they took care of us. We were a party of 10, celebrating my mother's 90th birthday. There was a surprise gift for her in her room, along with the cake Gwendolyn ordered for us and then gifted us.. The cake was spectacular and the fact that she...

My wife and I were in the Mount Dora area visiting family and needed a place to stay at the last minute. Fortunately, Grandview had room for us. We had no idea how lucky we were! It all starts with the people who run the B&B. They can make or break the experience. We have been to a few where...

Whenever staying in Mt. Dora, a stay at the Grandview bed and breakfast is highly recommended. The rooms are spacious and cozy. The morning breakfast is exceptional. Social time in the early evening consists of beer or wine and a snack. Sitting on the porch in a rocking chair is absolutely relaxing. And Gwendolyn the owner truly makes you feel...

Gwendolyn is very friendly, down-to-earth and made us feel welcome as soon as we stepped foot in the place. Her breakfasts are wholesome and delicious with generous options. The afternoon "social time", which includes a drink and a snack, is a nice perk and a wonderful opportunity to share experiences with other guests. The location is great - just a...

First stay at a B&B for two in our party. We all loved it! Gwen is the perfect hostess. All her touches are first class. She is possibly over worked though! A lovely, charming place. Highly recommend.

Its impossible to find something wrong with this place. Clean, well finished, great location, attentive staff and owners. Really great time, walking distance to down town Mount Dora.
