This was our first visit to Mount Dora, which was on Election Day 2016. Mount Dora is Avery picturesque town. We enjoyed a great meal at one of many very good restaurants. We walked around Lake Dora board walk and historic Lakeside Inn.

Melanie, the inn keeper, was a delightful hostess with grace, charm, and hospitality. Breakfast both mornings we stayed was delicious. Egg shuffle and sweet potato pancakes one morning and strawberry ricotta stuffed French toast with smoked sausage links the next. The rooms were comfortably furnished. One member of our party had a sore back and Melanie made sure he was... More

Quaint turn-of-the-century farmhouse less than a half block from downtown Mount Dora. Spacious and comfortable room, we stayed in Dick's room. Breakfast is awesome! Highly recommend for couples looking for a nice getaway to a fabulous town with lots to do!
