My husband and I enjoyed a trip to Mt Dora, FL last holiday season so much, we HAD to return again this year! One of the reasons for our return was our very pleasant and convenient accommodations at Farnsworth House. Hosts Kim and Soren could not be more accommodating, welcoming, and solicitous of our comfort and well being. They make...

Wonderful hosts and excellent breakfasts. Located within walking distance of the village and Christmas lights. Delightful rooms, reasonably priced, and Kim and Soren could not be nicer; they are extremely helpful, welcoming, and knowledgable about their community. We enjoyed everything about Farnsworth House and shal return.

My group really enjoyed our visit to Mount Dora and due in no small part to our lovely stay at the Historic Farnsworth House B&B. Innkeepers Kim and Soren do a fantastic job of pampering their guests. The facility is great - spacious, private and so tranquil. I especially liked that it was just a bit out of the central...

This was our second time escaping to the Farnsworth House in Mount Dora. We are from Orlando and don't want to take the time to travel when doing a one night getaway. This was perfect. The innkeepers are lovely- so hospitable. They think of the little details and it shows. Their dining and activity recommendations were on target. We stayed...

We stayed here for 1 night and really enjoyed it. As we arrived, we were greeted by the friendly owners and graciously given a free upgrade since not all of the rooms were being occupied. We ended up staying in the 2nd floor of the main house. The room was full of old world charm, which is exactly what we...

My two friends and I stayed in the Azalea room at the Farnsworth House on Nov.13th and Nov.14th, 2015. We made our reservation more than two months in advance at which time we were charged one night’s room rate plus an additional $50.00 per night for the third person in the room. The charge for the room was about $279.00...

My fiance and I stayed at this beautiful bed & breakfast for two nights and loved it very much. The innkeepers, Sören and Kim, were absolute wonderful hosts. Our room was impeccable and very spacious; it was complete with bathrobes and slippers. The breakfasts were fancy and delicious. We will definitely stay there again next time we visit Mount Dora.
