Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Holly and her husband have been residents since 1989. Both are transplants from south Florida. They found Mount Dora charming immediately and raised their children here and still call Mount Dora home. Holly is a nurse at the local hospital and is very involved in the state of FL organization for Infection Prevention. She loves the outdoors, walking, hiking, kayaking. There is an abundance of central Florida springs and trails she considers local hidden treasures.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Dora, FL, USA:
We purchased this property during the February Mt. Dora festival in 1989. We fell in love with the close-to-downtown location for all the downtown events and the private setting of this home. It is located at the end of a nice, quiet street. This was home for our family for 5 years, we loved it that much!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Best of both quiet serenity and City of Mount Dora. In 2015, we've converted this to a vacation rental from a long term rental to share this special place with those vacationing in this area.
