The Mount Dora Historic Inn was originally built in the 1880’s as a downtown merchant’s home, since then it has been restored to reflect the simple grace and grandeur of that era. The Bed & Breakfast inn is located on east 4th Avenue, just a short walk from the Historic Downtown Village.
The inn has four unique rooms that are individually and beautifully decorated, we stayed in Dick’s Room. The room was extremely spacious, had a king sized bed and a private bath, it was lovely.
They also have ten spacious and private cottages that are within two blocks of the historic downtown district. They offer all the comforts of home, some include washer and dryers, and are available to rent by the night, week, or month.
The other ‘B’ in a B and B inn is breakfast; here at the Mount Dora Historic Inn the breakfast is amazing. Chef Jim has several specialties that include blueberry stuffed French toast and Polynesian soup. The morning we were there we were served the vanilla bean citrus soup, three cheese savory soufflé and their delicious sweet potato pancakes, can I Just say yum. Chef Jim Tuttle has been a gourmet chef for over 20 years and believes in simple, delicious food and the breakfast we had was both; look for his up coming cookbook.
Jim Tuttle and his wife Ana Tuttle are the innkeepers; owning an inn was a dream they made come true. Once they decided to become innkeepers they looked in California, Cape Cod and Florida, we’re glad they chose Mount Dora. Jim and Ana are committed to the total satisfaction of their guests and it shows.
So go enjoy a few days at the Mount Dora Historic Inn, where guest comfort is their highest priority and their gourmet breakfast is not to be missed.
