My wife and I were very pleased with our stay at the Farnsworth House last night. The price was reasonable. The room was clean and neat. The bed was comfortable. They served a late breakfast for me and the other runners who ran in the half marathon, along with the family members. The breakfast was delicious and they allowed us to check out late which was very accommodating.

Great location. Located near downtown Mount Dora but a little off the beaten path. Farnsworth House is definitely a place I would go to again and recommend to all my friends and family. The house grounds and house are well maintained. The owners are friendly, welcoming, and we felt like we were with family. We were offered complimentary drinks and refreshments immediately upon arriving. The breakfast was excellent and fresh and was served on fine dishes. As we were the only guests staying in the main house at the time the owners gave us a free upgrade. They gave us a lot of info about the town and what are the best places to go to etc. It was like having a personal tour guide. You can just tell this couple loves what they do. We felt very welcome and are definitely staying at the Farnsworth House when we visit Mount Dora again.

Wow! What a nice 'homecoming'. This was our first trip to Mt Dora and we chose the best B&B. From the warm welcome we received from Kim and Soren, to the beautiful room, and delicious breakfasts, Farnsworth House is superb. Kim is delightful and Soren is so very helpful. We've stayed in a lot of B&Bs, but Farnsworth is by far the most comfortable with the interaction with the owners. It truly felt as though we were their family and they welcomed us with open arms. Can't wait to plan our next trip!

The Farnsworth House was recommended to us by someone who lives in Mt. Dora and they knew what they were talking about. Everything from the plush towels, large breakfast, and sitting outside amoung the trees was a delight. We always enjoy learning the history of the home and they did not disappoint. We are planning our next trip already.

Room Tip: Staying in the house is worth the extra money

Innkeepers Soren and Kim will make your visit to Farnsworth House a lovely one. The cottage we stayed in was small but immaculate. Bedding, towels and other supplies were high quality; robes and slippers too! Ask for a tour of the plantings in the yard. There are also lots of supplies for outdoor living - grills and lounge chairs. Mount Dora itself is a great weekend destination. Lots of artsy stores, really good restaurants and excellent resale shopping! Although this B and B isn't walking distance to downtown, there is plenty of public parking there. Don't miss sunset on Lake Dora. Can't wait to return for a weekend!

We just returned from a weekend stay at the Farnsworth "Home" House in Mt. Dora!
The reason I added "Home" is because it was just like being at home!
The innkeepers, Kim and Soren, made us feel like one of their family. They have a book with the history of the home, built Circa 1873 and they really want you to know and love their "home" as much as they do!
The Farnsworth House was extremely clean, and the property was well manicured...over all...only kudos to such a beautiful home.
Feeling that we "owned" the home, we poured a glass of wine and sat in the screened in porch upon returning from dinner and just relaxed!
Both days our breakfast was excellent and we felt like "Kings and Queens" while Kim and Soren made sure that our every "want" was fulfilled! We can NOT say enough about The Farnsworth House and are already planning our next trip!!!

I recently stayed at Farnsworth House and really liked the accomodations. I moved from another B & B due to a very bad experience and the Farnsworth innkeepers took me in with no reservation or advance notice. They immediately made me feel welcome and comfortable. The home is clean and updated. The innkeepers, Kim and Soren were so pleasant, perfectly attentive while at the same time allowing for our privacy. Would highly recommend this B & B
