beautiful authentic extremely well maintained estate in a quiet picturesque lake in a nice established neighhood. modern conveniences, adorable rooms with fireplace. clean and no 'old' smell. delicious creative breakfasts served on antique china. I ate too much, but I did go for several walks to help work it off
Close to the main road in Mt. Dora, but away from the noise. Room was large, clean and very comfortable....particularly the bed. The breakfasts provided were excellent. I guess it's expected in an older home, but the bathroom was very small and the shower difficult to figure out despite instructions provided. I agree with a prior reviewer in that the outside could use some updating, but the place is for sale. A For Sale sign is what greets you....not what you really want to see to start your stay.
Everything especially the hosts
When walking in you are transported back to the late 1920's, it was beautiful and quaint. The staff were so pleasant and accommodating given we needed the elevator for my elderly mother frequently. Given the age and upholding the historic features the windows are not very insulated for noise. We had one night when the bar patrons from next door hung out in parking lot very loudly. This is just a minor payoff to the quality of staff and setting.
Charm and friendliness of staff as well as proximity to activities in Downtown Winter Garden. Minor nitpick only: Sometimes the charm of a structure being true to its 100-year old origins reminds you of the modern amenities and design we've all grown accustomed to. Doorways are a little shorter, showers and baths a little tighter, etc.
Overall a wonderful, clean and safe place to stay. Noise levels can be interesting at a bed and breakfast but should not be a deterrant for a quaint and beautiful place to stay. So fussy sleepers who need absolute quiet beware.
This was a lovingly restored 1920's hotel. The staff, breakfast, and room were great. Nothing bad to say at all! We surely felt as if we were stepping back into a simpler, kinder, more elegant time. Nothing!
Room was nice size. We saw pictures of the Phillips house but were put up at a 1950's style hotel next door.
Very nice staff, and helpful. There is a busy, elevated highway ramp just at the front of the property and a busy elevated highway just behind. The city seemed to have wanted to surround this beautiful place with concrete.
The staff was very helpful. The courtyard is very pretty. The room furniture was unique antiques. The shower is extremely small. The original description indicated that it was 1/2 mile from Disney. Instead it's more like 1/2 hour with no traffic. Breakfast was not what you'd expect from a B&B at this price level. We were initially assigned to a room that was 88 degrees because the A/C was broken.
The lovely atmosphere and gardens. The location to downtown can't be beat. There were small spider webs in every corner of every room.
