Amazing!

5 on February 05, 2016

The owners are amazing. The whole trip was amazing. My husband and I went up to the area for a kayaking trip. The greatest trip ever. I've never seen so many manatees swimming along side of the boat. The inn was was a great place to stay. Great parking. Great yards to spend quite time. The owners were the sweetest. The food was delicious. Everything that you could possibly need was already in your room. You felt right at home. I can't end without mentioning Molly the cat! Loved her. It was a wonderful place to stay, and would stay there again.


Loved the Victorian Cottage

5 on February 05, 2016

Truly loved our stay. The cottage was beautiful and the kitchen was loaded with goodies. The breakfast at the main house was awesome (stuffed French toast, pastries, eggs and meats) all for $7.00!! Gerald was an exceptional host. We will definitely be returning. Highly recommended!!


Our Stay at the Alling House

4.2 on January 18, 2016

Everything at the Alling House was exceptionally neat and clean! The grounds were very pretty. The interior of the main house was gorgeous. The breakfast was delicious and the owners made you feel at home. The services they provided way exceeded our expectations! We have not encountered any B&B who go the extra mile as they do. We would love to go back again and would highly recommend this B&B to everyone.

Lovely Place to Stay

4.6 on December 03, 2015

It was a pleasure to stay at the Alling Bed and Breakfast in Orange City.. I unfortunately had to cut my stay short, but the time I did get to stay was very nice. The owners are very nice and accommodating people. I will definitely look into staying here in the future should the need arise. The check-in process and tour was quick and easy. The breakfast was very good, I especially liked the cinnamon flavored muffins. I only have one recommendation and that is to get softer beds. My bed was extremely firm.

Innkeeper Response
Considering all of the verbal comments we get from people saying they slept very well, we are curious as to which room this was. We are looking forward to making sure that you get a bed that you are comfortable with on your next visit.

Family Get Away

4.4 on August 26, 2015

My family decided to rent two of the cottages and get together. The cottages were very clean and spacious. We enjoyed grilling and hanging out on the porch as well as taking a nap on the hammock. We visited the state park about 5 minutes away where the kids swam with fish and saw manatees. It was a great experience and we will definitely return.


The Perfect Oasis
