About Lisa Caravette

My husband and I have been coming to Mt. Dora for 18 years and have always loved the 'feel' and the 'fit'. We are both nurses and plan to retire here. When we are here we are always busy and have met the most amazing people. We hope you enjoy Mt. Dora as much as we have.

Lisa Caravette purchased this house in 2011

Why Lisa Caravette chose Mount Dora

We are unique! One block from Donnelly Street! Many homes boast that you can walk to downtown but it may be a 10-15 minute walk. Our cottage IS downtown. We are quaint and cozy and kept the decor true to the period in which it was built. Also, we are one block from Lake Dora, the marina, the docks, boardwalk, nature trail as well as the park.

What makes this house unique

We looked for months for a cottage with the amenities we were wishing for. We wanted a downtown location - got it! We wanted to be close to the lake - got it! We wanted a 'cottage' feel - got it! Now you get to experience what we fell in love with all these years.

Cute Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is great! If you have young girls, they will love it!! My sisters and I stayed here for 2 nights. The beds are very comfortable and the location is perfect for seeing down town Mt. Dora. We did not cook, while we were there, but the kitchen seemed well equipped. It was very clean with plenty of towels, paper goods etc were provided. We enjoyed the seating out back. The owner, Lisa, was very easy to work with and even granted a special request that we had. We have been to Mt. Dora many times and have a friend there we wanted to see and of course shop. We will stay here again!!!!

Quaint and close to downtown

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the cottage. The location was within a very short walking distance to downtown, the pier and the historic Lakeside Inn where my son was married. It was a great meeting place for my family to hang out and then head downtown to enjoy drinks and dining.

Our cottage is one street away from Donnelly Street which is the heart of downtown Mt.Dora. There you will find restaurants, wine tasting, shops, and all the action yet situated on a quiet street with plenty of parking. Sit on the front stoop and enjoy your morning coffee and look at the lake or savor an evening cocktail on the covered deck in the backyard. Rent a boat or kayak from the Mt Dora Marina which is steps away and troll the lake or take in lunch at one of the many lakeside restaurants. Gilbert Park and the lighthouse is steps away and the sunsets are magnificent. We are approximately 45 minutes from Orlando and all the attractions
