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 national 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.
Holly purchased this Cottage in 1989
Why Holly chose Mount Dora
We purchased this property during the 1989 February Mt. Dora Art Festival. 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 our family home for 5 years!

We stayed at Holly’s Hideaway for Christmas and it was wonderful. Holly has decorated our place for Christmas and we felt right at home. Super Cozy. We truly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay up in Mt Dora. Holly’s Hideaway has everything you need.
Home away from home
The minute you walked in the house you felt welcome. So many nice personal touches and everything spotless. Gave me some great ideas on remodeling our house.
My Dream Home Away From Home
The moment we walked through the gate at Holly's Hideaway, I knew we had entered a little slice of paradise. The yard is is your private oasis. The landscaping is beautiful. The house is charming and beautifully decorated. I challenge anyone to find a speck of dust or dirt. Holly has supplied you with anything that you could possibly need. The bed was luxurious and the seating so comfortable. There is a beautiful patio and a lovely enclosed porch. I am not exaggerating when I say this was possibly my best stay, and I have traveled the world!
My husband and I were there to attend our daughters wedding at The Hidden Barn which was only a 15 minute drive from the house. The rehearsal dinner was at a lovely restaurant 5 minutes away in Mt. Dora.
Holly was as charming as her home, and I am so grateful o her for allowing us to stay.
We are back home in upstate New York, and i am sitting here looking out our window at several inches of snow. Memories of Holly's Hideaway will hopefully lift my spirits until we can return!
Holly's Hideaway was truly wonderful and I cannot wait to return! Cathy and Frank Rotella

Holly's Hideway was a great quiet retreat in Mt. Dora. I would highly recommend to all of my family and friends.
Holly’s hideaway is absolutely adorable. It was perfect for our family. Completely stocked for all your needs. Impeccably maintained. And it has a lovely fenced garden area with lots of seating. So cozy. And Holly was wonderful to work with. Perfect VRBO!
Welcoming stay at a difficult time.
First of all, renting this house was so last minute so I’m so thankful that Holly gave us the ok to rent her home on such short notice. We were so pleased when we got to the rental house, because the house was so nice and clean and cool inside. We had driven 16 hours from San Antonio, Texas for my fathers funeral and we were so tired and we just wanted someplace cool and clean to relax in. The house was so nicely decorated and made us feel as if we were at home. Holly texted me to say she was coming over to introduce herself and she was absolutely the nicest and most helpful person. She had everything in her house that we would ever need, we didn’t have to leave or preoccupy ourselves with anything other than preparing for my fathers funeral. We actually didn’t want to leave, but hopefully we’ll be back soon.
We would be delighted to have your family back for a less stressful stay, less difficult time. Thank you for your kind note.
