Facility is located in a historical area walking distance from the town with a multitude of shops and restaurants with a variety of culinary options. There is plenty of activities to include boating, fishing and hiking. The boat Eco tour was excellent and was accessible right from the property. The Inn restaurants (the Veranda, main dining area and Pub were all very good with excellent service). Other than that, we had an enjoyable experience.

Property Description

A visit to the Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora is time travel of the most privileged sort. The 135-year-old historic landmark is rooted in a peaceful, romantic and genteel era yet offers the conveniences and activities of the modern times.The Inn's cluster of five buildings are grand in the quaint Old Florida style, built to last centuries and garnished with gables, balconies, porches and fanciful Victorian flourishes. The estate is graced with stately oak trees dripping with Spanish moss and an expanse of green that sweeps down to an Olympic-sized swimming pool and sparkling Lake Dora, one of Central Florida's more than 1,000 lakes that are legendary among boaters and fishermen. Many rooms and suites feature picture postcard views of the lake, dotted with sailboats, antique vessels, an occasional gator's snout, and home to the setting sun every evening.
