Wonderful Visit!

We always have a wonderful visit at the Alling House Bed and Breakfast and Nan and Gerald are always so accommodating. We stay in a cabin, and no matter which cabin you choose, you will thoroughly enjoy and the cabin has everything you will need -- even some snacks and food in the fridge! The grounds of the property are extremely peaceful and pleasant. Book it -- you'll love it!

Gorgeous facility, clean, quiet. Breakfast is a must. The best.


Wonderful Place To Stay

5 on March 15, 2017

I wish I had figured out about this B&B years ago, but unfortunately only stayed in the 'chain' hotels in the Orange City area. Happily I found the Alling House and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Unfortunately, they will be closing in a few months, so now I'm back to finding a nice place to stay in Orange City that doesn't charge you WAY too much for a room.


Great Breakfast

4.8 on March 01, 2017

We stayed in the Rose Room during our stay at the Alling House. The Inn is easy to find, less than a block off the main drag in a residential neighborhood. The breakfasts are great and plentiful!!! You will not go away hungry. A note to people not familiar with Victorian-style B&Bs: Victorians loved knick-knacks and stuff everywhere. Be aware that there will be limited space for your personnel things in this room.


Great value and gracious hosts

3.6 on February 22, 2017

We stayed in one of the cottages, the oldest, and it was cozy and comfortable. My mother slept in a very comfortable bed downstairs and I slept in the loft. Really liked the grounds and all the unique aspects of the Inn. Only recommendation is our cottages shower was not inviting - not the level on cleanliness we expected. I would still return to stay again.


Alling House B&B

Outstanding. Has to be one of the best B&B's in Florida for the price.


Beautiful Bed & Breakfast

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast. We stayed in one of the cottages with our children and it was perfect for our family of four. Even had a tire swing and hammock right outside.
