This is our second stay at the “Wow” Cottage. Everything was as stocked with more than ample provisions, beautifully appointed ( with several new additions), sparkling clean, and comfortable as on our prior visit. Liz, one of the owners, had even inquired as to what she and Lee could provide that might make our stay more comfortable. I had suggested some lumbar support pillows for front porch chairs; and by golly, when we arrived, there were two new such pillows awaiting us! We LOVE the front porch and use it daily while visiting there. They had even added some white decorative lights to give it some light in the evenings! (Needless to say, even with the summer heat, we still spent a lot of time there well into the late evening many nights. ) The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, within walking distance to Mt. Dora, and is uniquely decorated, but most comfortable. I would add that the beds are both very comfortable as well. The kitchen has most everything one might need to fix meals there (which we did a lot of this trip). The owners provide a Keurig coffee/tea machine with a complement of Keurig teas and coffees. There are even a few very tasty snack packages that are provided, plus Lee will provide fresh, organic eggs from his farm ( and they ARE super)! All in all, I think most anyone would find this cottage to be a warm, welcoming, and most pleasant getaway location. We highly recommend it! We know we shall return!

We recently spent a couple of weeks at the WOW cottage, and we had a wonderful time. The hosts, Liz and Lee went the extra mile to prepare the place for our visit. The cottage was very spacious and clean. The decor was special and unique, with many amazing artistic details. The kitchen was well stocked and modern, and the beds and furniture very comfortable. The front had a lovely porch, and the back had a beautiful back yard with a sitting area. We liked the close proximity to Mount Dora downtown and great parks. We highly recommend the WOW cottage!

Truly enjoyed our stay at the WOW cottage! From our first communication through our trip home, Liz and Lee were very responsive to all questions and made us feel like valued guests in their home. They thought of everything from a well equipped kitchen, welcome card, snacks, getting a grill ready for us, to the organic blue eggs...they certainly wowed us! And then there's the cottage..every time you turn around, you discover something new. The outdoor space was great! We loved sitting in the back grilling and then enjoyed wine and music on the front porch. Area was quiet. Could easily walk into town. Great location Would highly recommend this cottage!

Liz and Lee are excellent at over doing in providing for a most wonderful stay! It's a home away from home, though way more "Wow" than our northern home. We feel pampered just being here

Our first time using vrbo, so I was hesitant. But the whole experience was amazing! Lee and Liz have thought of everything to make the wow cottage comfortable, welcoming, and breathtaking. We were mesmerized by everything. WOW!

My husband and I stayed at this “Wow” Cottage for two weeks as a “getaway.” What a perfect choice! Everything you read from others is true! The hosts, Liz and Lee, are truly caring and considerate people! Could not ask for anyone nicer! The cottage was immaculate and the hosts provide almost everything one could need or even think they need! They left fresh organic eggs in the fridge for us and even brought over more later in our stay, as well as offered us some organically raised tilapia fish. Lee explained how he cooks it, we followed his recipe, and it was absolutely delish! There was a selection of Keurig coffee and teas, hot chocolates, sugars and creamers, all kinds of condiments, some snack foods, as well as everything else one could need in a kitchen! The beds were fantastic! I almost wanted to strap the mattress on top of our SUV to bring home! 😁. One of our major delights was being able to sit outside under cover both on the screened-in front porch (also has a ceiling fan and lights) as well as the awning-covered back patio. We had our breakfast out there almost every day. The back yard is quite pleasant with bird feeders, bird bath, trees providing soft, relaxing background sounds when the wind blew (pretty much every day), shade and even chaise lounges as well as a bistro patio set. Their decor is unique and creative — something we personally did appreciate. Always lots to see — every day we “discovered” something new to see in the house. There is even a small sitting room off the master bedroom with two wing chairs — which we used on several occasions (we are readers). There is a lot to do in Mt. Dora if one wants to be active. Our hosts were there to recommend some of which we were not aware - like a short half hour golf cart tour of the historic district in Mt Dora (don't miss the “Starry Night” painted house!). There are many very good restaurants in the area — again our hosts offered some excellent ideas. Overall, we would rate this place higher than 5 stars, if only for the welcoming (but NOT intrusive) attitude of our hosts! The house was lovely, within walking distance to town, and seemed like a safe neighborhood. People were friendly walking by and overall pretty quiet . Thank you to Liz and Lee! We definitely shall return!

This charming, clean, comfortable cottage welcomes you with open arms. It is impeccably decorated and meets every need . The furnishings are fantastic and the kitchen has everything any cook could want. The screened front porch and the back patio provide places to enjoy the Florida weather. Our Host, Liz, responded to any questions or comments within a matter of minutes. Book this wonderful cottage, you won't regret it!

This was our first time in MtDora. The property was very clean, stocked with everything you could want or need. Just a short walk to the downtown district. Property manager was top notch, as were the details of the experience. Will be back.

The house is located convenient to downtown Mt Dora and the pictures on VRBO give you a good look at the detail that went in to decorating the home. It has every modern convenience in the kitchen, bath, and tv's, yet maintains its charm with an artist's eye for decor. We loved our visit and have already booked it for next year.
