“Hospitality, beautiful, friendship.”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

This is no ordinary b&b, the sign in the living room says come as strangers and leave as friend's. Never was a statement so true, Patti and Gordie are the perfect hosts, never the same breakfast everyday, and the 5 o'clock wine with chat was a great chance to meet with other guests, and for Patti and Gordie to advise on where to go, where to eat, with there extensive local knowledge, and even to arrange dinner dates, or local excursions. On our last day Patti helped me with our check in on her computer.
The rooms were lovely, and we were told as soon as we needed anything, to let them know, and it would be done. Just a short walk from beautiful mount dora town centre, or the boardwalk. Restaurants are close at hand, and watching the sunset over lake dora, whilst eating dinner just topped it all..
If I have a complaint, it is that we had to go home. You made id special for us, and you deserve to be number 1.
We shall return.

We had the most wonderful experience at the Grandview Bed and Breakfast. The hosts, Patti and Gordie, made us feel welcome the minute we arrived. Patti showed us to our room and then invited us for wine and cheese with the other guests. Patti and Gordie joined us for happy hour and kept the conversations flowing amongst the guests. They assisted us with recommendations and reservations. They pay attention to every detail so that everyone feels special. The breakfast the next morning was better than any restaurant could have offered. We share the same hometown as our hosts; and upon departing, we received a beautiful gift of a colorized print of the way Stuart looked back in 1911. We will definitely return again. Thank you.

The B & B owners Patty and Gordy we wonderful and made us feel right at home. We went to Mt Dora to visit friends and when they came to pick us up to go to dinner, they were early and Patty and Gordy invited them right in and made them comfortable too. The room was great and the meals divine. I cannot recommend this highly enough. We travel extensively and just loved this B&B. It was well located and within walking distance of all that Mt Dora has to offer. We will definitely return again.

At the suggestion of my sister we planned a short winter getaway to Mt. Dora, Fl. No ever hearing of Mt. Dora we went to tripadvisor for guidance. We came upon the Grandview Bed and Breakfast and booked the trip. Gordie was very accommodating, rearranging things so that our two couples could stay in the Windmill Suite. On the trip down we were delayed in Atlanta and called to advise of our late arrival. Gordie told us not to worry, the door to our suite would be left open. When we arrived we found Gordie waiting for us. He showed us around the property and our suite which was just perfect. At breakfast the next morning we met Pattie and we were service a fabulous breakfast. Every morning during our stay Gordie and Pattie served up a different menu, one better than the next. During breakfast we also had great conversations with them and the many guests staying at the at the B&B. When we need information Gordie and Pattie were most helpful suggesting things to do and on occasion had a coupon or two to save us a couple of dollars.

Everyday at 5:00 :00 P.M. wine, cheese and crackers were served on the veranda or around the pool. This was always a good start to our beautiful evenings.

When our trip ended, we were sad to leave and assured Gordie and Pattie that we would be back in the near future. It truly is a wonderful spot enhanced by the warm friendly hosts.

Room Tip: All of the accommodations are great but if you are travelling with another couple try the Windmill s...

Hosts Patty and Gordy made us feel right at home. They were there to greet us and help with luggage from the moment we pulled up. Wine and a lovely hors d'oeuvres tray is served at 5:00 each night. Since we arrived after that they'd saved a tray for us and sat and visited while we enjoyed the wine. They were quick to offer dinner suggestions and then made calls to make sure places were still open. The French Colonial room was simple, but more than adequate. We weren't in the room much anyway since the veranda overlooking the backyard pool was so lovely. You can easily walk to downtown restaurants and shops. Breakfast was different each of our two mornings and both were amazing! The breakfast room is set up with cafe tables for two or four, with friendly conversation among the guests, if you are so inclined. During our stay my husband's back went out. Special thanks to Patty for getting him an appointment with Jesse at Healing Hands Massage. Jesse did an excellent job and we were able to enjoy the rest of our vacation!

If your idea of a terrific B&B includes spotless accommodations, luxury linens on luxury bedding, modern bathrooms w/ endless hot water, opening windows, AC and Heat, a wonderful breakfast cooked to order, wine and cheese at dusk, and an ever attentive host and hostess, this is the place for you! Location, off street parking, modern pool and traditional decor. Whoever thought B&B's had to kind of run down and ratty to be charming?
Visit Dougy and Patti at Grandview, you won't be disappointed. We can't wait to go back!

What a good decision this turned out to be, this B&B was everything that one could ask for......and much more! It's a daunting task to pick a B&B just from pictures, so reviews really help tell the tale. In this case you can easilly see from the outstanding feedback that EVERYONE agrees, this place is exactly what they were looking for! Brian & Carol Smith
