“Best stay ever”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Wow, what can words say about this wonderful place. We stayed here as we wanted to visit Blue Springs which is right near by.We stayed in the Victorian Cottage and Nan and Gerald thought of every little detail right down to q- tips and fluffy bathrobes. Your really only have to bring your clothes as everything is provided. I felt like I was visiting family and staying in an extra room with all the extra touches ( milk, oj, cream in the refrig and snacks in a basket and candies in candy dishes through out the cottage)
We opted to pay the extra $5.00 to have breakfast in the house and are we glad we did. Nan is an amazing cook. The eggs souffle, french toast and cinnamon rolls were grand. Nan and Gerald are such wonderful hosts going out of their way to make sure all is well.
An added bonus with eating breakfast in the house was meeting all the wonderful guests on the property. We definitely will be back as it was a great trip and wonderful stay at the Alling House.

Room Tip: The Cottages are great.... and having breakfast in the house gives you the opportunity to meet all t...

An excellent choice.
Nan and Gerald were excellent hosts. Provided a quite, comfortable room as we prepared to visit Blue Springs and its resident manatees the next day. That evening we were directed to historic Deland for dinner. Wonderful Greek restaurant was Santorini was beyond expectations.

The next morning Nan prepared a suburb breakfast of Eggs Benedict accompanied by delicious homemade biscuits.

Very enjoyable stay.

We recently spent a week at Alling House Bed and Breakfast in Orange City and it was a delightful experience. From the hominess of our wonderful cottage (Frontier Cottage) to the excellence of the breakfasts to the accommodating nature of Nan and Gerald, we had a wonderful stay. There are hotels close, but none could match the cleanliness and hominess of our cottage. It's a shame we have to get back on the road and go back to dirty and dark rooms. We will see you again in the future!

My Dad is at John Knox Village in Orange City and we were here for a pleasure visit.

Room Tip: The grounds are quiet and serene and well kept, yet they can be kid friendly too. Each cottage has...

We just got back from a stay at Alling House and it was a great visit. We chose it because the location was very good for the hiking and close proximity to Blue Springs State Park. Gerald and Nan were great hosts and after a long day of nature viewing when we got back to the B&B, Nan made us coffee and cake and talked, we felt like we were at home. The bed was comfortable, clean room. Good price for what you get will stay there again for sure.

My wife and I stayed at this delightful B & B between Christmas and New Years. We plan to return again in early mid-January when we once again visit the Orlando area. What a terriic find this was!!

Gerald and Nan are genuine and generous with their hospitality. Upon our arrival, Gerald gave us a tour of the house, explained its history, and shared a number of anecdotal stories with us that allowed us to feel an immediate connection with the B & B. He introduced us to Nan, who could not have been more gracious in having us in her home.

Our room was in the house, although there are cabin accommodations in the rear for larger parties. The room was spacious, beautifully appointed in keeping with the antique themes that Nan has painstakingly developed throughout the home, and impeccably clean. My wife and I felt comfortable in the upstairs room, and we made use of the sitting area with a guest computer and small refrigerator filled with complimentary drinks and snacks.

Our breakfasts were outstanding each morning. The dining room is a special place with a nostalgic feel. The large dining table was beautifully set upon our arrival in the mornings, and Gerald and Nan spent time with us at each breakfast to share their experiences with the house and to help us feel welcome and comfortable. And the food was divine!! Nan prepares the food fresh, and her morning offerings are the equivalent of a five-star restaurant. She prepared special items for my wife, who does not eat meat and who only eats egg whites.

I can't say enough about this uniquely outstanding B & B and its hosts. Those of you who are in the area will not be disappointed if you make a stopover at the Alling House. I suspect you will be as pleasantly surprised as we were to find this gem.

It is difficult to find new words to describe the amazement and senses of being somewhere special for an overnight stay. The best I can say is We tried to think of any excuse to justify staying at least another night to savior the experience in full. We could not but will certainly return for a few days of pure relaxation

Room Tip: If you are staying more than a couple of days go for one of the cottages
