This is the only bed and breakfast in Orlando. My family stayed in the Wellborn suites for two nights before cruising out of Port Canaveral. Unfortunately - our first night there was a Saturday evening that the B&B was hosting two wedding receptions at the same time. After driving all night and spending the morning and afternoon at Universal - we came back to two DJs playing loud dance music on each side of our room. Our room being the buffer between two wedding receptions created a maddening stereo music effect. The suites being old historic apartments give them no noise dampening, so in our kitchen you could hear every note of Taylor Swift's 'blank space' song being played at full club volume... In the main bedroom you could hear every guitar lick of the other wedding reception's 80s music. The rest of the suite you heard both sets of music playing at the same time... and that is like listening to two radios playing songs on top of each other... That will make you go crazy. The B&B does warn of wedding receptions being allowed music until 10:30pm when you book. However - I never would imagine that the suites would be used as the noise buffer for two separate outdoor wedding receptions. The room is comfortable and not terribly worn out like other reviews have suggested. However - the housekeeping leaves something to be desired when you find dust bunnies under the bed. The service I received from the staff before I booked was also very professional and nice. The location is nice, but gave a very sour first impression when I first pulled in the hotel's additional parking. A large group of homeless individuals had taken over a good part of the parking lot. The hotel staff must have ask them to leave because that was never a problem the rest of our stay. The B&B feels like it is under a highway, but there are no noise or traffic problems that come from its proximity to the toll road.

Loved the retro look of the building and the tucked away location. Good value for location. Only complaints are the grounds keeper starts the blower at 7 a.m. every morning and the guests above us, you could hear every move they make. We were awoken a lot because they were walking around all night. Thin ceilings.

My husband spent the first night of our honeymoon here and then went back on our fifth anniversary. Both times we were told there was no breakfast, each time with a different excuse but only a recommendation of a restaurant in walking distance. The first time we were understanding. The second time we were not. We will not be staying here again.

We enjoyed our stay at Courtyard At Lake Lucerne. It was a bit misleading when they show this big yellow Victorian house but they actually have multiple buildings. We stayed in the main building next to the office, which is another Victorian house. The only problem we had was that they keep all the lights burning bright outside and the blinds in our room #100 don't keep out the light. The old lace curtains could be replaced with some nice black out drapes that might update the room a bit and still not take away from the antique feel. The breakfast was good. Can imagine this would be a fantastic setting for a wedding and I will share with my friends about this. And I definitely will stay again.

Greeted with a carafe of wine. Enjoyed our beautiful room with a sun porch. Some highway noise, but didn't affect our visit or our sleep. Very classy and wonderful breakfast!

What an amazing place ! My wife and I were in Orlando for a concert at the Amway Center and I thought I would surprise her with something different than the chain hotels we normally stay. After I read some of the reviews, I called the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. The front desk clerk was extremely helpful and recommended the Attic Room in the Dr. Phillips House. When we arrived, Rafael quickly checked us in, invited us to the complimentary cocktail hour, and then sent us off to our room with a complimentary carafe of wine The room was awesome. It even had a marble shower with a marble double whirlpool tub. The house itself was amazing with beautiful antiques everywhere. The next morning we had a great breakfast which is served in the I.W. Phillips House. Just a great experience. I highly recommend you forgo the chain hotels and give the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne a try. I will never stay anywhere else in Orlando.

We stayed at Dr. Phillips House which was a nicely restored historical building. Loved the furnishings throughout and the paint scheme went beautifully with the architectural design. The room was spacious, nicely done. Breakfast was good but would have preferred to be served restaurant style with menu.

We stayed at the Courtyard to avoid the traffic going to the Orlando airport during rush hour from another town in Florida. The GPS took us to around Lake Lucerne without actually getting us to the B&B. They have a different address for the main office which would have made finding the inn much easier. The room itself was huge and needed some more decoration/furniture to be intimate and the bathroom likewise needed updating. The bed was comfortable, the temperature comfortable and in spite of being close to the crosstown expressway, quiet. Breakfast was modest and serve yourself. There was no staff there to lighten up the morning and guests fended for themselves. Fortunately there weren't many people the morning we stayed and those that were there were very nice making the morning enjoyable.
