Enter the house that was the home of E.B. Alling, a well-known Orange City mayor, for over 40 years and go back in time to the formative years of Orange City. Learn how Orange City was founded during the expansion of modern civilization into Florida along a prominent transportation route provided by the St. John's River. Hospitality being her strength, Nan's warmth and love will immediately make you feel like a close relative who has come home. You won't want to leave. We look forward to providing the opportunity and environment that will allow you to accomplish everything you're looking for from your vacation.

We were only able to stay one night due to previous plans and we wish we could stay longer. We will definately be back for a longer stay. Gerald and Nan are wonderful people, we were greated by Gerald on arrival and given a short history of the house and grounds. Our cabin "The Wilderness Cabin" was beautiful and the wild west decorations were fantastic. The rooms are more than comfortable, very clean and they have everything you need for your stay. The grounds are beautiful and a very nice palce to just walk around and relax. We will be back for a longer weekend stay and look forward to enjoying Gerald and Nan's hospitality.

Everything about the Alling House is a reflection of the passion and attention to detail of the owners. Gerald and Nan are extremely welcoming and helpful. Everything is immaculately kept and tastefully decorated. I would highly recommend this B&B.

My husband and I stayed at the Frontier cabin for a weekend. We were amazed how Nan and Gerald were able to furnish the cabin with so many beautiful details. The property is peaceful, the breakfast was delicious. We had a wonderful time.

My husband and I made a last minute decision to stay in the area during a recent visit with our daughter at Stetson University. Reservations made the night before our arrival were confirmed first thing in the morning. We were greeted at check-in and given a tour and brief history of the home as well as a tour of the grounds and one of the cottages the next morning. We stayed in the main house which was quiet and comfortable. The private bathrooms were spacious and updated. A family style breakfast allowed guest to meet one another. The baked french toast was delicious when paired with juice, coffee, eggs, fruit, muffins and bacon/sausage. The price was great! We have already decided to book another stay next month.

This B & B is definitely way above average. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was exceptional. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The owners are friendly and helpful. We will definitely return but next time we will rent one of the cottages just so we can experience the full spectrum.

Stayed two nights in early September in a cottage on property - The Railroad Cottage. We chose Alling House as the cottages are pet friendly , and we had a wonderful experience. Cottages are in a beautiful setting behind main house. Fully equipped kitchen and fridge even stocked with breakfast items in case guest elects to sleep in and skip breakfast in main house. We did one of each - breakfast in main house was fantastic ! Would highly recommend as alternative to nearby hotels !!
