Mount Dora villa description

Oak Tree Villa is located in the enchanting old-fashioned lakeside town of Mount Dora, 26 miles from Sanford Orlando Airport and situated in the rolling hills and lakes of beautiful Lake County in Central Florida. The town is characterized as little New England by travel gurus and is known as the 'Antique capital' of Florida. This unusual character villa has just been completely re-decorated and re-furnished. It has three bedrooms consisting of a master ensuite with sunken mosaic Roman style tub which is situated at the opposite end from the other bedrooms allowing for privacy from your other guests.
Bed 2 has two twin beds and bed 3 has a queen double with a single bunk above. There is also a double futon in the Florida room. The house will comfortably sleep 8 adults and accommodate 10 with the futon. A travel cot is available. Situated backing right onto the public golf course yet still retains a degree of privacy around the south-facing 30' x 15' pool and large secluded gardens


Local activities: Last year the villa was rented by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp and used as a location set for their documentary 'The fifth Element'.
Within a 5 minute stroll is the Mount Dora Brewery and Rocking Rabbit restaurant for great food, ale and live music. In the main town two miles away are ample quaint eateries and Antique shops - a Mecca for Antique collectors! There are probably more interesting and varied antique dealers per square foot than any other place in Florida. The Cultural Calendar knows no season. Throughout the year, Mount Dora enjoys plays at the IceHouse Theatre, concerts and recitals by international artists at the Mount Dora Festival of Music & Literature, gallery openings, and on-going exhibitions at the Mount Dora Center for the Arts. Directly behind the Center for the Arts on Royellou Lane is the Royellou Museum at the Old City Jail, providing a glimpse of Mount Dora life from the past to the present. Taking a cruise on the Dora Canal will bring you back in time.

There are boat rentals and Bass tournaments on the lake. On day trips on the Orange Blossom Cannonball, you can experience the comfort and heyday of an authentic railroad passenger car, pulled by the only wood fired steam train left in the USA. Also known as the 'Movie Train' as it's appeared in many! The Mount Dora excursion train makes a round-trip run from Mount Dora to Tavares then back again, offering lovely views of Lake Dora, tropical foliage and wildlife from it's open window
coaches. This is definitely an area for those who enjoy nature, lakes, fishing and golf. Various annual festivals include:

                          Florida where you can sit in a rocking chair on the porch watching the sunset with a cold beer or home-made lemonade, dozens of shops, quaint eateries, and open air pubs, there's even a dog’s bakery there! Many visitors also liken Mount Dora to a cross between New Orleans and Key West.

                          A world away from the commercialism of International Drive or housing estates of Kissimmee and Clermont. However the theme parks and attractions are less than 45 minutes away and the beaches less than two hours to either coast. This area offers all of the activities the beautiful state of Florida has to offer, yet comfortably away from the crowds. Ten minutes away are shopping malls, cinemas, numerous restaurants, grocery stores, golf courses, and a new state-of-the-art Hospital.

                          Other Activities: Balloon rides, Bowls, Segway rental

                          Golf: For Golfers there is the adjacent Mount Dora public Golf Course.This is an old course built in 1947 with mature black oaks, Spanish moss and much charm. Dramatic changes of elevation make this course unique in Florida. This could be the best value in the entire Orlando area!This course has a few hills which is a rarity in Florida. The fairways are tight, and the greens are well manicured. The most difficult hole is #18, a par 4, with out-of-bounds stakes on the right.
