My daughter-in-law had never been to Mt. Dora so we decided to spend a couple nights there and decided on the Farnsworth House. We booked the Carriage House and loved our room. Very private and convenient, comfortable beds (twin beds in Grapefruit Room), snacks in room, comfy bathrobes which felt nice on a chilly morning. Kim and Soryn are perfect...

Kim and Soren are hospitality naturals - we immediately felt right at home upon arrival. We stayed in the very clean and spacious Canary suite and it had every amenity possible. We enjoyed crustless quiche the first morning and bread pudding the second morning. Everything was homemade and delicious. Soren introduced us to Swedish lingonberry jam and it was so...

This was my second visit to Mt. Dora and Farnsworth House, and it was so good the first time around that friends decided to come with me for this visit. It couldn't have been more perfect. We booked rooms in the Carriage House as well as the main house. Kim and Soren welcomed us upon arrival and showed each of...

We were immediately checked in upon arrival and KIm personally showed us to our room in the Carriage House on a rather damp day. We wished we had removed our shoes before entering because the unpaved parking area is very sandy and the sand stuck to our shoes. Our very clean room was decorated in a 1950s modern style rather...

This delightful B&B was simply outstanding! Kim and Sorin were delightful and made our Valentine's Day getaway trip perfect! We stayed in a Deluxe Queen Room (Glyn & Kiddie Suite). It was well worth it!

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend, looking for something away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando. Farnsworth House had rave reviews and we were thrilled to find a vacancy for our last minute trip. At .75 miles outside of the adorable downtown, it is in an absolutely ideal location if you like to explore by...

The owners of the B/B were nice and cordial. My hubby and I love to visit different B/B for the breakfast but we were not impressed with the breakfast here. It wasn't bad it was just average. Our room was right off from the dining room on the first floor so it's not the quietest room but convenient if you...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Kim and Sorenson, the owners, couldn't have been more welcoming. This was our first experience staying at a b&b. We loved it. The room was spacious and very clean. Nice, thick towels in the bathroom. Snacks provided in the room. Breakfast every day was delicious. Kim went out of her way...
