“For a Terrifically Charming B & B in Mt. Dora: Stay Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2010

Husband and little Shih Tzu Priscilla stayed in Suite #2 for one day/night in hot August. Before getting there, called many places and the owner, Houston, was very nice and professional on the phone. Explained that we had a 20 yr. old dog, with us most of the time, but wanted a nice, clean room for one night. We brought her bedding, including blanket, pillow and towels...I cannot stand a pet friendly place that charges extra and the room you are in stinks...We are very considerate in any inn, hotel, etc. with our pet. The Maison is in a great location...on one of the main streets and walking distance to everything in Mt. Dora. It is easy to find and quiet which is important at night. We stayed in Suite #2 which is beautifully decorated in appealing colors, beige sofa, chair in little living area with purple rug, then bedroom with gorgeous red comforter and beige rug, nice shower (toiletries including hair dryer), toilet, sink in the bathroom, and the circle is complete with small area with mini-frig, coffeemaker, micro, toaster, utensils & glasses.. All of the lamps, tables, pictures are coordinated in theme...As an artist I really appreciated the choices of all of the decorations in this room....you feel like this is your own private inn...I made coffee with the delicous Mt. Dora coffee provided and creamer and ordered in from the Chew Chew Station (Wow! What a great breakfast--texas toast with eggs, bacon, & cheese) and we had lunch at the Pizza place next door (good slices)...Houston let us stay longer in the am...hubby went golfing and needed to shower...so accomodating. Mt. Dora was very sleepy this time of year, still cute, everybody welcoming (love the new Cupcake store)...the real winner is Maison en Ville...it is terrifically charming with a wonderful host! It is a very nice to stay at...any time of the year!

The location is perfect, walking distance to everything downtown. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the suite was tastefully and thoughtfully furnished. From the comfy sitting area, to the well stocked breakfast area (complete with Mt. Dora coffee and real cream), this is the perfect inn.

We'll make this our home away from home.

houston, as proprietor did not mis-represent himself or his property resulting in a perfect, spur of the moment decision to spend our 30th anniversary in mt. dora. the room was perfectly decorated with an african motif, with many subtle attention to details, including remote control...really cools down air conditioner.....27" flat screen tv which swiveled around so that it could be viewed from the bed, the sitting room or even the toilet!....coffee maker, ice, fridge, wine glasses, extra towels and even the black sheets...made our stay as pleasurable as could be expected. the printed happy anniversary memo with flowers...made me want to provide this review. no room service...but then none was needed.

I chose this hotel based on it's location and other reviews on TripAdvisor - both were exactly as advertised - excellent! This is a house located just 2 blocks from Mt. Dora's main shopping/dining district, right next to a pizza parlor (I was originally concerned about possible noise/traffic, but it was never an issue). It's like renting your own apartment for the price of a hotel room. The room was spacious and very well appointed (champagne glasses, water in the fridge, visitor brochures, etc). The decor was warm and cozy, and really lacked nothing you would expect from a 4 or 5 star hotel. It is setup like a B&B, but there is no "shared" breakfast or common area, which actually is more to my liking - I enjoyed the privacy. We enjoyed a romantic dinner and evening in Mt. Dora, and I can't wait to get back again. P.S. On my way to the hotel, I had car troubles, and Houston, the owner, was extremely patient and understanding in dealing with my late arrival. His graciousness and trust helped make a bad situation much better. I only wish we could have spent more time there...will definitely go back again.

We decided to visit Mount Dora after my husband heard about this little quaint town on the radio. We are glad we did. The town is beautiful and wonderful for a weekend get-away. After researching hotels, Inns and B&B’s, Maison En Ville seemed like the perfect fit. We were looking for an area close to downtown with a B&B feel, without sharing a common area with people we didn’t know. The idea of staying in someone else’s house and eating breakfast with strangers at a given hour wasn’t very appealing to us. So Maison En Ville was perfect.

We felt like we were in a beautiful cottage bedroom with our own little kitchen. We stayed in Suite 3 and the décor was a rustic red and white theme. The kitchen was equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, stove, sink and glassware. The room was clean and the wall air conditioning unit was turned on when we walked in, making the room was nice and cool upon entering. There was covered parking and a cute little garden that made for nice pictures.

Huston is the owner, manager and Inn keeper all-in-one. He was fantastic, friendly and attentive. He met us at the Inn, because he lives off the property. This was perfect because we didn’t want to feel like we were being watched. He was only a phone call away if we needed anything, which we didn’t because everything was provided. He spoke to us about Mount Dora and answered all the questions we had. You can tell when someone loves what they do and he definitely does. It shows in his behavior and attitude.

Ohh and you must have the pizza from next door. I can’t believe I originally read a bad review on the shop. I’m thinking about going back to Mt Dora just for some more pizza!!

Everything about our stay was fantastic. We got in late and Houston made every effort to accomodate our schedule. The room was large, clean, modern and quiet. Perfect stay!
