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 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!
What makes this Cottage unique
Best of both quiet serenity and City of Mount Dora.

We love staying at Holly, the house is so nice and clean and it has a great backyeard to just sit & talk with friend. Holly herself is great.
Wonderful, Warm, Quiet, Peaceful
Once again we had a great stay at Holly's Hideaway. The fenced in yard is great and, had Mother Nature cooperated, we would have enjoyed it more. Our pups loved it. Holly and Dale are great and very responsive to their guests needs.
Most complete property we have stayed at !
Very warm and friendly ! Holly stayed in contact with us to make sure we got the most from our visit . Any time I text to ask about any of nearby amenities it was followed up immediately ! Looking forward to future rentals !!

Make reservations, as there are no reservations in this recommendation and review!
If you are considering a stay at Holly's whether you are seeking a quiet weekend away or spending time enjoying Mt Dora with family and friends, you will not be disappointed with "The Hideaway".
Holly is the most accommodating, honest, compassionate, knowledgable, supportive, and professional host, I've come across to date.
There is nothing but comfort, serenity, cleanliness, and attention to detail, at this very special home away from home, at Holly's.
We intentionally chose to spend a few days prior to Hurricane Irma's arrival at Holly's and spent the arrival of the storm in the Hideaway. In spite of the damage around us, The Hideaway not only kept us safe, secure, and in the most protective of surroundings. Holly was instrumental in offering us anything and everything we may have needed in preparation for the hurricane's arrival.
We only have one regret and that is we don't have our next opportunity lined up to return to Holly's Hideaway.
Thank you, Holly. Our praises cannot be higher regarding the time spent last week.
Perfect home away from home
I keep coming back to Holly's Hideaway and each time I am reminded how neat and beautiful it is. Great location in Mount Dora an old Southern town that truly kept its charme and appeal. The house is spacious, clean, fully equipped with everything one might need and easily fits 4 people with its 2 double bedrooms. It is beautifully decorated and most importantly Holly is a wonderful and very helpful host. The venue is perfect as a romantic getaway, a family home for my holidays (and it is just 40 min away from the Orlando theme parks) or a base for meeting up with friends for excursions in central Florida. I just came back from my latest visit and I am already looking forward to my next stay.
