This Victorian-era gem—the oldest continuously operating hotel in Florida— overlooks a beautiful lake in historic Mt. Dora.

The Destination
Just 30 miles northwest of Orlando—and worlds away from the scurry of it all—the charming town of Mount Dora pays homage to a Florida that once was. The historic downtown is lined with well-preserved architecture from the town's early days in the late 1800s. It thrives with locally owned wine tasting rooms, art galleries, specialty shops, outdoor cafés, and restaurants. On nearby Lake
Dora, one can experience not only scenic vistas, but also plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. This town of about 13,000 is perfectly content to while away the day as the crowds bustle in Orlando.

The Digs
Built in 1883 and situated on the banks of picturesque Lake Dora, Lakeside Inn charms with an ambiance befitting the Gilded Age. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and boasting the title of the oldest continuously operating hotel in Florida, this Victorian-style mansion features five distinct buildings adorned with gables, verandas, balconies, and awnings. Many guest rooms feature
authentic antique furnishings, king or double beds, spacious bathrooms (complete with Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries), wireless Internet, and stunning views of the lake or the sweeping grounds below. Start your day with a scrumptious breakfast in the elegant and sunny Beauclair Dining Room, where
you'll indulge in upscale, southern-style offerings from the Sunrise Grill menu. Then, take a dip in the large, shimmering lakefront swimming pool surrounded by the stately oak trees and Spanish moss on the lush grounds.
