Mount Dora cottage description

We invite you to stay at our tranquil cottage located within walking minutes from downtown Mount Dora, Florida. This quaint fully furnished 1925 cottage offers 2 bedrooms & 1 bath with all the comforts of home (see amenities below). The cottage has central air conditioning & heat, plus the original hardwood floors.

The perfect place for a get-away and seeing all the seasons. In the summertime, come and sip a glass of sweet tea on the front porch underneath the oaks. In the springtime, enjoy the vivid azalea blossoms from the patio garden, or in the autumn season curl up with a book in front of the fireplace (candles only). During the winter season, experience the Holiday Spirit by walking the Festival of Lights in downtown Mount Dora.

There is plenty to do during your stay at Mount Dora, including, golfing, kayaking, fishing, shopping, antiquing, nature walking, fine dining, mountain bike riding, and bird watching. Stroll down Donnelly Street and visit the antique shops, take a carriage ride or watch the sunset over Lake Dora from a park bench. Mount Dora is known for featuring a multitude of festivals (art, antique, bicycle, and crafts).

Mount Dora is northwest of Orlando, Florida and is a 1 hour drive from Disney World, EPCOT, MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios, Sea World, JFK Space Center, Orlando International Airport…and for those NASCAR fans, Daytona Beach.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: My husband, Dana & I were married at the Lakeside Inn at Mount Dora in Feb 2003. He was recalled to active duty (US Coast Guard) and he was able to get a weekend pass to get married! Dana & I reside in Stuart, FL which is about 2.5 hours from Mount Dora. We have a large dog named Duncan. Everyone loves Duncan, and we try to take him on vacations. I have a background in Marine Biology and have worked for the Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority for almost 20 years (time really flies!). I work in Environmental Programs. I also get to monitor a wading bird colony on our property which has Snail Kites & Wood Storks. Dana works for Dept of Environmental Protection Division of Law Enforcement. He is also in the Coast Guard Reserves. We are huge NASCAR, Indy-car & formula One fans (basically, Dana will watch anything that races). Top Gear is our favorite TV show. We are acitve in auto-xing, pistol shooting, and now kickball. We really hope you come & stay at our home. We look forward to meeting you!

                  Why the Owner Chose Mount Dora:
                  Mount Dora is very special to us. We wanted to do something different for our wedding and were married at the Historic Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora. We fell in love with the town and oak trees. So, we bought & renovated a 1925 cottage in 2006 and wanted to share the charm of Mount Dora with family, friends, and people we haven't met yet. Mount Dora has often been called the "New England" of the South. Come in & make yourself at home. We really hope you enjoy your stay.
