Snacks soft drinks and water were all provided as was an amazing breakfast. The hosts, Kim and Soren, could not be more pleasant or gracious. I will stay here...

We found the Farnsworth to be clean an comfortable and the staff is very attentive to your needs. Our room was small but large enough for our needs. There is much to do in the center of Mt. Dora and we were within easy walking distance. There was a very nice variety at breakfast over the days we stayed. We...

This property is in need of some maintenance especially the grounds. We stayed in the back building and the bathroom was the same size or smaller than a camper! The water went from hot to cold in the shower and the walls are paper thin. Our neighbors were noisy and someone snored all night in the next room. Kim was...

My daughter-in-law had never been to Mt. Dora so we decided to spend a couple nights there and decided on the Farnsworth House. We booked the Carriage House and loved our room. Very private and convenient, comfortable beds (twin beds in Grapefruit Room), snacks in room, comfy bathrobes which felt nice on a chilly morning. Kim and Soryn are perfect...

Kim and Soren are hospitality naturals - we immediately felt right at home upon arrival. We stayed in the very clean and spacious Canary suite and it had every amenity possible. We enjoyed crustless quiche the first morning and bread pudding the second morning. Everything was homemade and delicious. Soren introduced us to Swedish lingonberry jam and it was so...

This was my second visit to Mt. Dora and Farnsworth House, and it was so good the first time around that friends decided to come with me for this visit. It couldn't have been more perfect. We booked rooms in the Carriage House as well as the main house. Kim and Soren welcomed us upon arrival and showed each of...

We were immediately checked in upon arrival and KIm personally showed us to our room in the Carriage House on a rather damp day. We wished we had removed our shoes before entering because the unpaved parking area is very sandy and the sand stuck to our shoes. Our very clean room was decorated in a 1950s modern style rather...

This delightful B&B was simply outstanding! Kim and Sorin were delightful and made our Valentine's Day getaway trip perfect! We stayed in a Deluxe Queen Room (Glyn & Kiddie Suite). It was well worth it!
