“A fantastic B&B”
Reviewed 10 August 2006

After reading reviews about The Grandview B&B, my husband and I expected our visit to be pleasant and relaxing, but it turned out to be nothing more than FANTASTIC. Andy and Mel are southern gentlemen who definitely know how to pamper their guests. From the moment we arrived, we felt as if we were visiting dear friends. They have mastered the art of knowing when to be helpful while at the same time, respecting one's privacy.
The accommodations were excellent. Our room and large private bath were spotless. I made a game about trying to find one speck of dust during the time we were there, and didn't find a drop of dirt. The ambiance was lovely. They have furnished the entire house very tastefully with beautiful and some rare oriental pieces that they have collected over the years.
We were there for two breakfasts which were sumptuous and served ever so elegantly. I have special dietary needs and they went out of their way to accommodate me.
Wine and cheese were served every afternoon. It was so pleasant to enjoy wine and conversation in such a relaxed atmosphere.
We needed dinner reservations for a special anniversary celebration. Just by mentioning it when I was booking the room, it was taken care of for us.
I can't think of one negative thing, except I wish our visit had been for a longer period of time. We certainly plan to visit again in the near future. Andy and Mel deserve a 10+!

Seeking a get-away in South Florida, I "ran" to Mt. Dora - -antiques, shops, quaint shops and B & B's. Decided on Grandview B & B, and was not one bit disappointed !
The innkeepers were delightful - - the accomodations charming, comfortable, relaxing - -
cocktails each night lead to lively discussions, and then dinner at one of the town's delightful restaurants. The Grandview is close to town (3 blocks) and offers several choices of rooms - - one is handicap accessible and/or pet friendly ! and for the long, hot days of summer in Florida - -the pool is very relaxing.

Will definitely return to Grandview and look forward to my return trip.

This is, by far, the best B&B in Mount Dora or any of the surrounding communities. Our recent 2-night stay at the Grandview was perfect in every way.

The house and grounds are beautiful, the ambiance is relaxed, and the guests are personally pampered (while still respecting your privacy). Mel and Andy are wonderful hosts! We instantly felt like old friends and so very welcome.

The accommodations and a comfortable atmosphere make it possible to socialize with other guests or to have romantic time alone, as you choose. The gourmet breakfasts are incredible. The wine and cheese in the afternoons was a great way to end the day and begin the evening. Mel and Andy have a magical way of making your stay all that you wish it to be (at a price that won't empty your checkbook!)

You won't be disappointed at the Grandview B&B. We look forward to visiting again real soon!

We recently found the newly opened Grandview - the restored Watt house in Mount Dora. We were celebrating our first anniversary and were treated wonderfully. The rooms are interestingly decorated, extremely clean, with crisp linens. The breakfasts are gourmet and very satisfying. Our hosts, Mel and Andy are fantastic and willing to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

There is a pool in the back yard and a wonderful wrap around porch for relaxing while overlooking the pool or in the porch swing. We enjoyed the evenings on the porch sipping a cocktail and visiting with our hosts.

The Grandview was a wonderful relaxing stay without pretense. We were made to feel completely at home, thanks to our hosts. Wine was served in the late afternoon.

The Grandview is located only a couple of blocks from downtown, easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and lake activities. Highly recommend it!
