About Wendy Appleby

Although we use to live in Orlando, we always wanted to move to Mt. Dora. With the purchase of a vacation home (Park Cottage) in 2011 and visiting the town on the weekends we soon decided to move to this delightful little town in 2012. With that move came another house for us to renovate, (Beehive Cottage) then about a year later we purchased our third home (Rocking Chair Cottage).

Although Mt Dora has a small town feel, that has been frozen in time, within 2 miles from the heart of town are all the modern restaurants, grocery stores and shops. We love to visit the light house for Sunset and it’s always so nice to be able to walk into town and not have to worry about parking.

We now live just a mile from all of our beautiful homes and are available for any assistance you may need.

We love to shop and dine in downtown Mt Dora and it wouldn’t be unusual to run into us if your there. Don’t hesitate to contact us for the best kept secrets of town.

Wendy Appleby purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

Leave your car in the driveway and enjoy walking into town. This is what small town living is all about.

The Appleby’s Quaint Cottage was very comfortable and cozy esp with the summer’s high temps.

  • 5 of 5

Wendy was very accommodating fr start to end. Ample space for our party of 6. We felt at home the moment we walked in. The cottage has the required necessities and completely furnished. We found the front porch very relaxing, equipped with a fan, just watching the world go by even with the humidity and heat of summer. Town with its little boutiques and restaurants was walkable (.2 of a mile one way). You also have the option to explore the little town of Mt Dora. Thank you to the Applybys for a lovely stay!

Exceptional rental!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we first saw it, my family and I fell in love with the yellow cottage with the beautiful poplar trees out front. This feeling was reinforced when we stepped inside. It’s the little details that make house a home, and Beehive Cottage had a plethora of them—from the rockers on the front porch (my father and my husband spent many an hour there!) to the lovely antique decor and well-appointed modern kitchen. The house was very clean. The beds and abundant seating were very comfortable—a fact that we truly appreciated as my parents are elderly. The pantry was well-stocked with every spice and condiment we could need, and then some! In short, we were utterly charmed with the cottage! And even our pets enjoyed their stay. (Thank you, Wendy, for the doggie treats—we forgot to bring our own!). To conclude: this was the warmest, most welcoming vacation rental we have ever stayed in, and we highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in historic Mount Dora.

Best Place in Town

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in this quaint cottage!!! Nicest VRBO we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many. The house had everything we needed plus more. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and the short walks into town each day. We will definitely be back!!! Thank you Wendy and Tim for being so accommodating.
