About Bill Ainslie
My wife and I, along with our two boys moved to Florida from Upstate NY in 1983 and bought this home in 1984. Besides the main house, where we now reside as empty nesters, there is one upstairs apartment and the cottage. My wife's mother and father lived in the cottage until her dad passed away and her mother moved into an ALF in 2014, which left the cottage empty. We have had the apartment completely remodeled which is now being offered as a vacation rental.
Bill Ainslie purchased this Cottage in 1984
Why Bill Ainslie chose Tavares
We're located on a quiet street that is walking distance to the downtown area and it's many restaurants and activities. A short drive and you're in Mount Dora, Eustis, Leesburg and The Villages. We're aprox. an hour drive to all the Orlando attractions and Daytona Beach.
What makes this Cottage unique
The area has that small town feeling, but an easy drive to all that Central Florida has to offer.

Perfectly clean, exactly as advertised
Had a nice weekend at Fox Haven Cottage. Clean, comfortable, exactly as advertised. Good value, would definitely stay here again .
Just what I needed!
Fox Haven Cottage was the perfect spot for me to stay when spending the weekend visiting Tavares. I would be visiting the seaplane base each day and it was an easy under 10 minute walk there. The area was quiet and the cottage was perfect for just one or two people. I will be booking again for my trip back next year!
The hosts Bill an Betty made us feel right at home..
Fox haven cottage was clean, cozy an mostly relaxing after each bike ride for Daytona bike week trip from Wisconsin.. 3/16/18 Bill an Betty you two are forever in my memorable time we had staying in Traverse at your cottage.. Thank you again for taking care of us.

Fantastic and Peaceful!!
Bill and Betty have everything you could want or need for your stay! We were welcomed by fresh flowers on the table, and a notebook that contained all the information for the cottage, the appliances, TV, and even area restaurants’ menus! The cottage was better than the pictures, very clean, and the bed extremely comfortable. The cottage is in a residential neighborhood, which was quiet. All shopping, grocery, and restaurants nearby. A washer and dryer are provided, which we needed as my husband was umpiring college softball for the week - needed to look professional every day! The cottage also has screened in porch with patio furniture where we enjoyed eating dinner a few evenings. It is truly a wonderful place to stay! Thank you to Bill and Betty for offering a great Homeaway!
Cute and affordable
We loved our stay at this little cottage . Perfect for our little getaway for our family Christmas trip . Def would stay here again - the owners were very helpful and courteous 😊 April & Chris Holman
This was a great little cottage for our short visit to the Leesburg area. We had everything that we needed and had just the right amount of space to move around and spread out. The neighborhood was really quiet so that was nice as well. The bed was a full size bed - my husband is 6'2" but we were fine and it was comfortable! I would stay here again!
A short drive to Mount Dora and it's many antique and specialty shops. 1 to 1-1/2 hour drive to the Orlando attractions and Daytona Beach.
