The owners have recreated history in every detail and comfort. The detail and craftsmanship are a true treasure. Luxury linens, air mattress set to your personal setting and a delicious breakfast await you. Within minutes from Disney, Universal and Kissimmee entertainment districts. Walking distant to lake and historic downtown Kissimmee. Beautiful butterfly gardens and veranda to enjoy the sunset or beautiful sunrise. Limited space and booking quickly.......take advantage of a diamond soon! Terri T
I was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance of the Edgewater Hotel. It was like stepping back in time to a more genteel way of life. From the feel of the hotel itself to the many antiques even to the original Otis elevator, I was captivated. My guest and I bother enjoyed the Chef's Table fine dining restaurant on site. I give the Edgewater my thumbs up on all counts. Thank you for a memorable getaway.
My exceptions and enjoyment of B&B's is that they are quaint, very personable and there for the love of the trade and customers. I certainly did not get that feeling here. The place is clean- had no complaints of that. But the place needs touch ups. It is almost as if the owners are trying to just work the properties (there are 3 buildings) until they sell it off. There are some areas where paint is pealing, doors do not have complete doorknobs, carpets are frayed--- and that was just in our bedroom. I would not go back as it was not anything special. Historical yes-- clean yes-- loved no.
We stayed with our four-year-old daughter for a single night. The staff accommodated our late check-in, and was kind and helpful throughout our stay. We loved the open kitchen for late-night snacks. Our daughter adored their pet birds. The historic building was interesting, and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. If we again have the opportunity, we would definitely return!
What a disappointing experience! I chose the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne because of my love for historic homes and bed and breakfasts. Instead, I was given a room in the "Welborn", a disgusting dirty' lost in the fifties and still there, one bedroom apartment. It reminded me of the Bates Motel. If this is their idea of a "corporate suite" don't believe it. I was expecting a beautiful antebellum room based on the website pics. Instead, I got this horrible, rundown accommodation. The furniture and carpets were stained and dirty. The bathroom was barely usable. The grounds are beautiful as are the other three houses so if you decide to chance this place, make sure they don't put you in the Welborn. What a disappointing nightmare. If i could have, I would have left immediately but due to the event I went to attend in Orlando, everything else was booked by the time I got there. Awful!!!!!!!
We stayed here while we were in Orlando for a concert and we just fell in love with this property. The house was beautiful and really enjoyed the historic charter throughout. We stayed in the yellow guest room and it was very romantic and charming. Happy hour is a must and is really nice to sip on wine while walking the beautiful gardens. It was overall relaxing and a hidden gem. We will definitely be back.
We stayed at the Courtyard on 07/04. We arrived ahead of schedule, but was welcomed with our early arrival with a beautiful room. Ben, the cat, was a pleasant greeter! We were serviced by 3 members of the staff, and each of them were very personable, attentive and informative. We are extremely pleased with the grounds, the service, the staff and the location. We will definitely select this establishment during our next visit to Orlando, Florida.
Kim and Soren welcome you into their home as valued guests. Their attention to detail, both in the rooms and the lovely breakfast, expresses their desire to faciitate a wonderful vacation for their guests. They are also willing to make suggestions to those new to Mt Dora, enhancing the visit to their town. I booked another visit for a group of friends before leaving.
My room was ridiculously clean. The room was simple, but beautiful, and it had EVERYTHING that a road comedian needed (adequate lighting for make up application, and an iron!) The landscape was very, very nice. The vibe reeked of serenity. The staff was professional and very sweet. Although it's located in busy downtown Orlando, once I got in my room, I felt that I was at a quiet cottage in the country. Unfortunately for me, I left too early to participate in the complimentary breakfast, this time. I will return, and I will suggest this place to all my fellow road comedians.
Owners are extremely friendly and keep a very clean establishment. My only bad experience was the tiny bathroom and an old spring mattress wasnt most comfortable ive been in. It is in a good location near shopping and restaurants.
We arrived at the bed and breakfast around 7pm on a Saturday after a long day running around Orlando. My husband and entered our room and heard extremley loud music and shouting. They did not inform us of a wedding going on directly below us in the courtyard. So instead of a relaxing stay at the bed and breakfast we had loud blasting music and cheers until 10:30 pm. Then the wedding party moved inside where they talked loudly outside our room until 1 am or so. The staff did not care at all. They did nothing to compensate us for our horrible night of little sleep. You would think they would inform customers of loud events. WE are a young couple who does not normally spend a large amount on a room. WE thought we would have a special weekend at a romantic bed and breakfast. We were very wrong. I also emailed the bed and breakfast twice and never had a reply.
We stayed in the Welburne Suits. I booked my room 6 months in advance. 1 week before check in, I called to double check on my reservation. Good thing I did because I originally reserved my room for 2 nights at $150 a night. When I called they told me I'd have to pay $185 a night and put me in a completely different room. When we arrived for check in all of the guests reservations were wrong. Several people had to find other hotels to stay in. The room we were in had paint chips on the walls, the bathroom floor was cracked (had found a FINGER NAIL in the crack), the vase in the living room had dried up snot stuck to the side of it, and mildew in the shower. I have pictures for proof. I would not waist money staying here.
Nelson, the desk clerk, was awesome. Very friendly and informative. Catered to our every need. A lot of responsibility with everyone checking in at one time. He handled it graciously and very professional.
The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne is an ideal location for a wedding! We loved the charm, the history and the unique features this venue had to offer. The location is perfect in Orlando, centered in downtown and easy for everyone to get to. The staff are very friendly and great to work with. We had Angie help us and she is amazing, very responsive and patient with me with all of my questions. The venue itself is stunning, it has a charm all in its own and very little decor is needed. We got married in October, it was warm but no rain. At night the lights strung up in the courtyard were so pretty. If you are looking for a venue that is unique, this is a great place to pursue. They have great wedding packages and are affordable, they make it very easy on you! We were so pleased from start to finish and loved this venue! We stayed October 9th and loved the room, gorgeous decor, comfortable bed, huge bathroom and very clean.
I have stayed here twice and am getting ready to book my third visit. I have stayed in many B&Bs and I consider this one the best. The Innkeepers are great representatives of this lovely town. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms immaculate. I highly recommend The Farnsworth House. Ellen Teichart, St. Charles, IL
We had a wonderful stay... Very beautiful estate... Remember to ask for the free wine... Very nice after a day of travel... And they let us keep our truck and uhaul an extra night so we didn't have to pull it to Cocoa Beach for one night we traveled there.. Super nice management!! Will stay again for sure!! Rooms very clean!
Loved stepping back in time along with the small town atmosphere. Quaint, lovely and just 20min away from Orlando attractions -- we left Orlando early to get back to window shopping, coffee houses, micro brewery, ice cream parlors: a piece of America
We're staying in Norment Parry house where the office is and absolutely loving it!! Me and my husband got a room upstairs (#103) and it is absolutely gorgeous!! Huge bathroom with a bathtub, private outside sitting area, antique furniture, very clean and tranquil just what we needed after a long road trip from NJ. Breakfast was good, different variaties of food to satisfy everyone. Sad we were only staying here for one night, I'm gonna miss this place. But we will definitely be back the first chance we get!
