About Holly

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.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect! Holly is the best Hostess Evah! She has all the information you will need to have a wonderful stay in Mt. Dora (a quaint, friendly and wonderful setting). The house is in a great location to enjoy the area and have a quiet relaxing place to go back to in between sightseeing, dining and shopping. Plenty of space to take your own food if you want to fix meals there as well. Large bedrooms and bathrooms decorated so beautifully. Holly will answer your inquiries very quickly. We loved the spacious patio (there is an extra deck for grilling if you want). I can't say enough about it really! We can't wait to go back! Thank you Holly!!!!!

A Little Piece Of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Holly’s Hideaway is true to it’s name! It is tucked back in a private fenced in shaded yard with beautiful ferns, foliage, and a huge old oak tree. Plenty of chairs to enjoy the peaceful retreat and even a covered swing to enjoy morning coffee or tea! That was before you even opened the door! The inside was just as charming and immaculately clean! Holly makes sure no detail is missed. If you have any questions she is just a quick text or phone call away! We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful, Warm, Quiet, Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

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.
