For those seeking a peaceful, private country setting with easy access to Florida's attractions, including Orlando area theme parks, Mount Dora antiquing, spring-fed lakes, and coastal beaches, our “Country House” is tops! Located just 8 miles from the Mount Dora Historic District, and 9 miles from downtown Eustis. The first floor of this 1200 square foot “cottage” is open concept with a fully appointed kitchen (including new fridge and range, a dishwasher and microwave, and dishes, cooking utensils, and linens to make your stay extra comfy), spacious living room with flat screen TV complete with DirecTV with DVR, breakfast bar, dining area, and fully equipped laundry! Upstairs you’ll be treated to a full bath and two large bedrooms that will comfortably sleep six. (queen bed in master, and two single beds with trundles in second bedroom) Bed and bath linens are provided. Additional housekeeping may be requested for $40.00 per visit. This property borders the Lake Norris Conservation Area, with access to beautiful trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Our home is located on the same property as our little Country House, so we are there to answer questions, and take care of any special requests or needs. The Country House is nestled among large oaks, towering old pines and abundant wildlife. While enjoying the front porch or back deck, you may see deer, red fox, hawks, owls, gopher turtles, and, rarely, a Florida Black Bear roaming through the yard! There is also plenty of room to park your boat and RV. The beautiful, fresh water Chain of Lakes that is navigable from the Gulf Coast to the Ocean through a series of lakes, rivers, and locks is a must for any boater. Plan a stay with us and let our Country House be home base for day trips to Disney and the Orlando theme parks with the kids, to Mount Dora for some of the best antiquing in Florida, or head to either coast for a day at the beach. We are close to boating and fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, golf, and innumerable other activities for adults and children. We welcome you to stay for a week, a month, or as a long-term guest, and look forward to having you here!
