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.

This lil cottage is just as cute and quaint as can be! Wendy is very accommodating and response quickly to any questions you may have! We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend staying here. We were able to walk down town to enjoy the shops and restaurants. 💕💕💕💕💕💕

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here and once again just loved the home. The cottage feel was so welcoming. Its a very short distance to town which once again was perfect. The home is equipped with everything if you decide to cook in. The outdoor covered area was a nice touch also sitting outside with drinks and something to eat.

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the cottage and opened the front door there was a "Happy Birthday" banner with my name. I had mention in my emails to Wendy that our trip to Mt. Dora was a birthday getaway. I can not thank Wendy and Tim enough for their hospitality. The cottage was close to downtown and was stocked with everything you could possible need during your stay. Marcella, Edward, and Michael

Quaint, Cozy and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is adorable, just seeing it gave us that warm-all-over feeling. We were so pleased to find the home immaculate and the beds very comfortable. The outdoor area under the gazebo on the deck was fabulous. The home is conveniently located to the historic downtown area of Mount Dora. The owner was so hospitable, leaving a Happy Birthday message and a bottle of wine for us. She even sent a text to check on us and see if we had any questions. This gem was a real find and we'll definitely be back!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in beautiful Mt Dora. The Appleby's where awesome!!! They have a beautiful fully furnished home that we adored staying at for our girls weekend getaway. A welcoming sign with our first names made it even more of a personal experience, with treats, bottle of wind, and beverages. They went above and beyond for accommodations. We will be back. Thank you Wendy
