About

Thurston House has a quiet & serene setting, yet is only 5 miles north of downtown Orlando. Our 1885 Queen Anne Victorian farmhouse style home has been lovingly restored, boasting beautiful woodwork and floors. Furnished using a comfortable and eclectic blend of antiques & reproductions, all three rooms have queen-sized beds, private baths, and desk with phone. Complimentary wireless Internet is available throughout the inn and even on the wraparound porch! We are set amid eight acres of land overlooking charming Lake Eulalia, yet are minutes from great restaurants, museums and shopping. Winter Park is just moments away too! The wooded acerage around us has a low key walking trail for your enjoyment. Take a stroll and listen to the birds singing away. They really enjoy our Certified Wildlife Habitat! For those not motivated to stroll, and porch rockers are waiting for you.

BUSINESS TRIP

5 on November 25, 2013

My husband and I went to Winterpark on business and we never unless we have to stay in a hotel. We travel on business most of the time we travel and feel that a B&B gives you a place at the end of the day where you feel like you are at home. Carol and Joe were both wonderful host and Carol still is at the top of her game even after 21 years of doing this. The details were quite nice, and I believe that she has thought of everything. The breakfast that she put together took you to New England, where she is from and you will as she puts its have a New England experience with palm trees. I know we will find ourselves in the Winterpark area again and I will call the Thurston House home once again. Thanks again to you both for making us feel so comfy on this in and out trip.


Wonderful Stay

Breakfast was artfully presented and very tasty. Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated with period pieces. The innkeeper gave excellent attention to detail and we were delighted to spend 2 nights in such a lovely setting. Just 10 minutes away from fine dining and shopping. Would highly recommend.
