#1 in Mount Dora--Closest to Downtown & Lakefront! RSVP's for winter 2021!

Historic vacation home in Mount Dora
(Please contact us with your inquiry and group size before instant booking.)
Perhaps the oldest home in Mt. Dora built in the 1880's! Everything exudes warmth & charm, yet with all the modern conveniences of today. This home is both the closest rental to the Historic downtown district as well as Lake Dora & the Lighthouse! Donnelly park, Trimble park and Elizabeth Evans park and band shell are all within a very short walk. The Nature Boardwalk along Lake Dora and into the woods are right across from the park along with the marina and boat docks. This property is an upstairs two bedroom villa with very comfortable space and size (~1,000 Plenty of room to spread out and relax (with huge back yard for entertaining and grilling).
The villa has been lovingly restored with updated bathroom and kitchen. The rest of the house maintains the warmth and charm with its original wood floors. It gives the home it's authentic lodge feeling.
This 2nd story Villa has it's own private entrance and large private side yard and front porch. There is a washer and dryer on the premises for our guest's use and convenience. (Please message us BEFORE booking so we can verify availability and cleaning crew schedule).
We are always only a text, email or phone call away. Often we are nearby and can assist with any details that need tending to. If you need suggestions where to eat or what to do in town we have lots of ideas for you!

Mount Dora has been acknowledged as one of the best small towns in all of Florida. She has a terrific and charming historic district of which our rentals are included. The area is very safe for walking and exploring the area. The downtown has two large parks for walking and recreation and two smaller ones for music venues and picnics.
Once at our homes you have no worries about driving around town. Everything is just a short walk away which makes it very easy and safe and allows you to enjoy Mt. Dora to the fullest without worrying about parking. Young and old can easily manage the short distances to get to the downtown and the lakefront. Why worry about driving after having a cocktail or glass a wine and risk ruining your vacation. Walking is the preferred method of transportation by Mt. Dorians.

Mt Dora
The house is close to the city for dining and shopping. The house is also close to the lake and a nice trail for walking. The marina is near by in case you would like to rent a boat. The house was clean and the owners gave a great list of suggestions.

Fantastic location; great facilities
We had a really great stay in Mount Dora. The town itself has a good choice of restaurants and bars, plus we went at Christmas-time and managed to see the Highland Games and "Light up Mount Dora" Christmas lights. We recommend the Saturday night wine walk/tasting from Maggie's Attic - great fun. The accommodation is fantastically located just a block or two from downtown - two ample-sized bedrooms and nice lounge, plus separate kitchen. Plus a much-appreciated welcome gift from the owners, which we drank on the first evening !!! Wholeheartedly recommended.

Great Location
Another Mt Dora 1/2 Marathon completed! Staying with Peter & Lisa is the way to go. All 3 of their properties are only steps away from the Race Start/Finish; makes it easy for GrandMa to walk GrandDaughter over to cheer Dad as he completes another challenge. The properties are clean, well stocked & very welcoming. Of course the city of Mt Dora at Christmas is beyond beautifully decorated & the properties allow you to walk to everything. No need to get in your car once you are parked. Additionally the owners are ready to assist if you have any questions or needs during your stay. Go ahead & book one of their homes ~ you won't be sorry!

5/5 Excellent

I loved being able to stay in an "old" house (I say old solely due to it's age) but the house is super clean, nicely furnished, very well equipped, modernly decorated, and with comfortable beds. The most important part was the short walking distance to Donnelly Street in one direction and the lighthouse/marina in the other direction. We enjoyed walking through the town, visiting the shops, and having coffee at the french bakery. We were able to take some great photos of sunset at the lake and then walked across the street to Pisces Rising where we enjoyed the live music, drink and friendly atmosphere. Peter and Lisa were very accommodating and full of great information. Thanks for the wonderful stay!
