About

The Farnsworth House reopened in October 2012 under the caring ownership of innkeepers Kim Evans and Sören Strandberg. You'll enjoy splendid nights and delicious mornings in this historic Mount Dora landmark. Conveniently located a few blocks walking distance to downtown Mount Dora, just slightly off the beaten path. Stroll our tree-shaded grounds and enjoy starry evenings on one of our screened porches or gazebo. Choose from comfortable air-conditioned rooms in the 1887 Farnsworth House and the adjacent Carriage House — all with private bathrooms. Rates range from $115 to $220 per night, single or double occupancy, and include a delicious home-cooked breakfast in the main dining room. Mount Dora is a charming historic village in the heart of Central Florida on the shores of Lake Dora, offering a wide variety of shopping, dining, festivals, lodging, activities, and entertainment with excellent nearby golfing. Just 25 miles northwest of Orlando, Mount Dora combines two kinds of vacations — the old-fashioned charm of a small unspoiled Central Florida town and the excitement of nearby Walt Disney World with proximity to Orlando airport.

THE PLACE to stay in Mt. Dora!

5 on March 27, 2014

This was or first visit to Mt. Dora and first stay in a bed and breakfast. The Farnsworth House is immaculately cleaned and maintained. The owners were genuinely interested in our comfort, interests, and needs. They provided us will great info about the town and recommendations were excellent for our needs - relaxation away from our home. The breakfasts were delicious, healthy, and very filling. We highly recommend the Farnsworth House for gracious accommodations within walking distance of town. A beautiful and peaceful place. P.S. I loved playing the piano ¿¿

We stayed in the golf room which was so amazine. We just showed up with no reservations and Kim and her husband was so welcoming to us. Kim was very sensitive to my food allergies when making breakfast. This was the best BnB I've ever stayed at and I can't wait to get back there as we r planing to make this a yearly trip. Thank you Kim and her husband


Excellent stay!!

We stayed 2 nights in the Golf room which is located in the carriage house. It is great in the carriage house because you have tons of privacy over staying in the main house. Everything was excellent from the service to the nice oversized clean room to the delicious breakfast. Definitely a must stay if you are in the Mount Dora area. Paul Collard


Cycling in Mt. Dora

4.8 on December 02, 2013

Our adventure of cycling in Mt. Dora became an extra special event thanks to our great hosts Kim and Soren. Our days began with smiling faces over breakfast. When we needed to get an early start our hosts were ever so accomodating. Our room opened up to a lushious garden and the center to town was in walking distance. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to our return visit.

Kim was very pleasant, accommodating and informative about the area. We would have enjoyed staying there longer than one night.
