We very much appreciate your kind words. Guests such as these make our lives as innkeepers a delight. Our location is very unique, so close to everything, yet tucked away in a very quiet rural setting. We do look forward to having you here again someday. Thank you! Carole

A first Bed & Breakfast stay. We enjoyed it very much. The only negative is the bathroom was very small, with little to no room for makeup, toiletries, hanging a towel, etc. Otherwise, everything was clean and great!

Thank you for your kind words! You were booked into my smallest accommodation, and yes the bathroom is a bit tighter than my other 2 guest rooms. I have several regular guests who always chose that room as they like its’ coziness. There is a double shelf wicker side table in that bathroom, along with an additional glass shelf for toiletries. I hope you will be able to return someday, and book either of the other 2 rooms, perhaps better suited for your needs. I am happy that you enjoyed your first bed & breakfast stay. We are all unique and sell much more than just a room, but the experience, from the porches, grounds and the special breakfast offerings. Thank you again!

I stayed here for two nights for college parents weekend since it is not far from my daughter’s college. It was really lovely. The place is well kept and the owners were helpful with how to avoid traffic for the ever-busy parent parade. Breakfast was good. It is now my go to

Thank you so much for your kind words. Although there are a couple other options, often people visiting Rollin's College want to stay a bit away from all the busy area. We are exactly 3 miles to the college gate so we certainly are not far. Our location among 8 acres of lakefront wooded land is calm and peaceful. There are safe walking paths, free off-street parking and several porches to enjoy. The front wraparound porch is a particular favorite for guests to enjoy. While rocking away you may see an owl or hawk swoop by in search of dinner. Quite amazing! Thank you again! Carole

I just took delivery of my new Tesla Model 3 and wanted to put a few miles on it. So, we searched the Tesla.com site for B&B's that were one charge away (310 miles) and that offered a Tesla Destination Charger. The Thurston House fit the bill. The circa 1885 home has been

Thank you so much for your kind words. We love having people of all types and from so many places come to visit. We especially like seeing these beautiful new Tesla's outside charging. Joe is waiting for his ride too...lol! You can even visit the Tesla dealership that is less than a mile down the street from us. Pick out your next car! There is so much to see and do in this Maitland/Winter Park area that we have many repeat guests. Thanks again! Carole

I had a family weekend at my child's local university and couldn't get into the hotel I normally book. Found Thurston house and it was a lovely surprise. Very homey and comfortable accommodations. Began each morning with a run around the lovely lake / area nearby, amazing coffee

We are so happy that you discovered us. Our area is unique and beautiful, yet only 3 miles from the Rollin's College campus. Sometimes it is nice to be close to everything going on, yet have your own time to relax and enjoy our safe neighborhoods and parks. We look forward to your return! Thank you! Carole

Sorry not allowed to do any functions here. There are so many restaurants in WInter PArk that could do it. In Maitland the Maitland Art Center, Antonio's and the new Black Fin. Good luck! Please keep us in mind for wedding guests accommodations.
