About the Property

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Bring your boat and enjoy this truly unique, one of a kind cottage. This lovely home was converted from a boat house. So it sits on pilings in the lake. My husband, a contractor, has a very creative imagination! This wonderful 800 sq. ft. home has a great room with a comfortable queen size murphy bed plus laundry and bath. It also has a large 12x28 ft. water front porch and a deck over the boat slip. You will have the unique experience of living downtown on "Boat House Row" enjoying incredible sunsets and boating on The Harris Chain Of Lakes. Life doesn't get any better!

About the owner: We live in Mount Dora and enjoy this wonderful life. As past president of The Sunnyland Chapter of ACBS (Antique And Classic Boat Society) our interest are antique boats, chapter activities and our wonderful friends.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Dora, FL, USA:
The history of our home is unique. Originally, it was a 2 slip boat house. My husband, a builder with a creative imagination, converted the boat house to living space. It has been described as 'living large' as you can comfortably entertain your guests while enjoying wonderful sunsets.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home is located on Lake Dora in the center of downtown Mt Dora. No driving, just a casual stroll to local pubs, restaurants, marina, parks and festivals.
