Car: Not Necessary

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

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: My husband and I have been coming to Mt. Dora for 15 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.

Why Mount Dora, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
