Re-live the elegance of the past at the lovely Mount Dora Historic Inn. Nestled in a secluded setting in romantic downtown Mount Dora, the Inn is only 25 minutes from Orlando. Enjoy the gracious hospitality, authentic period antiques, and relaxed atmosphere of this charming Bed and Breakfast. Originally built in the late 1800's as a downtown merchant's home, the Inn has been lovingly restored to it's original beauty, by the proprietors, Lindsay and Nancy Richards. The efforts of their labor of love have resulted in a memorable ambiance of warmth and embraceable character. The Mount Dora Historic Inn features fine, beautifully appointed rooms with private baths, each decorated with individuality, and an emphasis on complete guest comfort and tranquillity. From the hearty breakfast to the nightly turndown service, we welcome you to return to a bygone era.

Big thanks to Ana and Debi for their wonderful hospitality. I booked all four rooms with some friends for the weekend and everyone was pleased with the accomodations. This is a cozy little place; perfect for the ladies. The house is decorated with flowery, girly prints and antique furnishings. Three of the rooms have a queen bed and one upstairs has a king. (I would not recommend staying here if you're bringing big 'guys'.) The breakfast was delicious (no meat and potatoes) and the Inn is in a perfect location for walking to downtown Mt. Dora. I would note that there is not a room for lounging and the only t.v.'s are in the bedrooms. The main room has a dining table and chairs with a buffet and desk. A little uncomfortable hanging out in the dining chairs but not a big deal. This is a small house and I don't think I would care to share it with people I don't know. Also, it would have been great to have some tea/lemonade/flavored water and a snack when we arrived. We loved the chocolate chip cookies and bottled water in the late afternoon.

Unable to get reservations at our regular place in Mt. Dora, we went to the Historic Inn. It's our new best place in Mt. Dora. Great location, friendly service, lovely rooms, and breakfast to die for! SIX stars for location and dining! Very nice. Would definitely go again.

We stayed at the Mount Dora Historic Inn for one night....first time visit to Mount Dora to see the town for the first time and close proximity to a breeder 40 miles away to pick up new puppies the next day. We were greeted by Debbie and so very impressed with her hospitality and such a wonderful person. Our room was well appointed with the classics to represent the character and comfort of the wonderful historic house. Debbie prepared a wonderful breakfast...souffle, fruit starter and wonderful setting. The location is wonderful, one block from the center of town and excellent restaurant options! Once the car was parked at arrival.....never got in it again until departure to pick up our new pups and could easily tour the town on foot! We would definitely revisit the Mount Dora Historic Inn again....not a questioin....not to mention they have other properties in the same proximity that are pet friendly....great optioin since we now have our pups!

My wife and another couple wanted to get away and spend some quiet time in a quaint town and stay in a nice peaceful bed and breakfast. My brother recommended the Historic Inn and we were thoroughly surprised at how great of a stay it was. Everything was so clean, the staff was very nice and the location was perfect. It is in the heart of Mount Dora and allows for you to walk everywhere you go. Everyone in town knows about the Inn and loves the owners as well so it was as if we were staying in a Family member's home. The breakfast was amazing as both owners are chefs. We loved our stay and look forward to going back in December. We highly recommend it!!!

We stayed mid-week, had the place to ourselves. We were right downtown and walked to wonderful restaurant, listened to live music outdoors and had a wonderful kayak trip the next morning after a great breakfast. Our host came in early to accommodate our schedule.

The Mount Dora Historic Inn was the perfect place for us to stay for our first trip to Mt Dora. It was really close to the downtown shops and restaurants - all within walking distance. The inn staff also made great recommendations for places to eat (don't miss The Goblin Market) and things to see. The room was quaint and clean. We were glad the inn had a nice DVD collection too when it started raining outside, which made for a nice relaxing evening in the room. The best part of the stay though was the delicious breakfasts. Thankfully we were there for two mornings and got to try the inn's two signature breakfasts - both were amazing. Thank you Ana, Jim, and Debbie for a wonderful stay in your b&b.
Dick’s room, located on the second floor, is always a favorite with honeymooners (or those acting like honeymooners). It features a king-size brass bed, with antique mahogany pieces complete this setting, taking you to a slower paced era.
Historical furnishings to relax and unwind, a brass bed from the 50’s and one of Florida’s most comfortable overstuffed horsehair chairs invite you to linger. A complete 6 piece porcelain bowl and pitcher set decorates this lovely room. Very rare to find all the pieces remaining. A mahogany bureau and commode have rare “French Pegged” joinery and houses the antique potty. A modern, private bath has been added for your convenience.
Sky-blue walls, lace covering windows with wavy original glass and a treetop view greet you as you enter Mary Grey’s room located on the second floor. Your cares can drift right out the windows allowing you to relax and recharge. A queen-size brass bed with cozy bedding to help cradle you off to slumber. Two beautiful white silk brocaded bedroom chairs invite you to read or sit and chat. Your private bathroom with shower completes this restful retreat.
Surround yourself with magnolias, lace, Gone with the wind lamps, walnut handkerchief chest, British armoire and mahogany game table. Drift back into time in a 1880’s brass bed (converted to queen-size for your comfort.) A 1906 claw-foot tub awaits you replete with a rubber duck. Soak stress away in a bubble bath and enjoy our treasure that will remind you of a gentler time.
