This was our second time escaping to the Farnsworth House in Mount Dora. We are from Orlando and don't want to take the time to travel when doing a one night getaway. This was perfect. The innkeepers are lovely- so hospitable. They think of the little details and it shows. Their dining and activity recommendations were on target. We stayed...

We stayed here for 1 night and really enjoyed it. As we arrived, we were greeted by the friendly owners and graciously given a free upgrade since not all of the rooms were being occupied. We ended up staying in the 2nd floor of the main house. The room was full of old world charm, which is exactly what we...

My two friends and I stayed in the Azalea room at the Farnsworth House on Nov.13th and Nov.14th, 2015. We made our reservation more than two months in advance at which time we were charged one night’s room rate plus an additional $50.00 per night for the third person in the room. The charge for the room was about $279.00...

My fiance and I stayed at this beautiful bed & breakfast for two nights and loved it very much. The innkeepers, Sören and Kim, were absolute wonderful hosts. Our room was impeccable and very spacious; it was complete with bathrobes and slippers. The breakfasts were fancy and delicious. We will definitely stay there again next time we visit Mount Dora.

Had a very nice stay here. The large grounds are quiet and pretty. Plenty of seating in the porch or outside under the trees. The B&B is less than a mile into the quaint downtown of Mount Dora, definitely within walking distance. Breakfast was good, our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and the hosts are very welcoming, friendly, and...

We had a nice stay at Farnsworth House. We stayed in one of the carriage house units which was a little funky in terms of a B and B, but mostly comfortable. Nice to have a refrigerator and microwave tucked away in this efficiency model. There were some lovely extras-plush robes and slippers, drinks and snacks in the room, delicious...

My husband and I check into the Farnsworth House on October 23rd, to enjoy a long weekend at the Mount Dora Crafts Fair. The B&B is a short 10 minute walk to the middle of Downtown Mount Dora (away from the noisy crowds) where the Crafts Fair was being held. Kim and Soren were our gracious hosts and they keep...

Farnsworth House is a beautiful experience. It is clean and the owners are so sweet! It is close to downtown Mt Dora and we loved our first bed and breakfast experience! The breakfast was delicious. The owners always made sure we had water and asked often if there was anything they could do or get for us.
