This was our second visit to the historic Farnsworth House located in beautiful Mt. Dora. This B&B offers late 1800's period style and charm in what was the winter home of a business owner from New York. Mr. Farnsworth built this home to accommodate his entire family and now provides a quiet, romantic retreat located minutes away from the town...

My wife and I drove thru Mount Dora several weeks ago while in the area during the Leesburg Bikefest. (We are avid Harley-Davidson riders) The town is full of quaint shops and nice restaurants/pubs located on the shores of Lake Dora. We decided to revisit on a short weekend and choose Farnsworth B&B for our one night stay. What a...

Innkeepers, Kim and Soren, made this B&B a wonderful experience from the moment we walked through the door. Taking time to give recommendations for dining, shopping and sightseeing was helpful. They have taken great care in maintaining the beauty of this historical home. Our room was impeccably clean and with very comfortable beds. Having stayed in many B&B's over the...

Caribbean friendliness and Swedish cleanliness....Kim and Sören do a great job at their B&B in Mt Dora and are good hosts. The location may not be the best, in the sense that some homes nearby were not as well maintained as they could be, but the B&B was truly very nice. Breakfast was great and well served. Thank you Kim...

Excellent! Quaint, cozy and very clean. Owners Kim and Soren are very friendly and hospitable. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. We will definitely plan to stay there again. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the Windsor Rose, and spent a great deal of time walking around the town in and out of the many shops.

Been wanting to visit this lovely place for a while and I was not disappointed. Our suite was beautifully finished and decorated with many antique items and made you feel to stay much longer. It was a lovely environment to come 'home' to, and the owner Kim made it all the more so. Our breakfast was in a traditional dining...

What an absolutely beautiful place Farnsworth House is to stay, this B&B is professionally run by caring owners offering welcoming service. Free Wifi, free bottled water, snacks in the room and delicious home cooked breakfast and a truly lovely historical setting.

The room was very clean, comfortable and the hosts were delightful. Nice location, not too close to the downtown so it was very quiet. Very accommodating for a late arrival which was very much appreciated. The shower head needed to be replaced in our bathroom. The fresh fruit and yogurt were nice for breakfast but the hot dish was quite...
