B and B ?? ... great bed but had a hard time with the breakfast part. Paid $450.00 for a weekend with my new wife. Lot of money for a bed. The breakfast was a joke; not at all like the internet photos'. Breakfast was a 3 course starting at 8 am with coffee, juice and much later a pumpkin...

Actually website photos of the buffet are accurate, now breakfast is even better, there is always plenty of food at all times, not as this guest described (read other reviews). No one requested an early breakfast except this individual at 9am the morning of, other guests were happy. It is very distressing when guests who only think of themselves are...

This overnight stay taught me another travel lesson. Always ask if the hotel/B&B is for sale. Usually it's a little run down if that's the case. That being said, the room was clean, very eclectic (shells all over as decoration with Victorian touches also), and very large. I was informed on the phone while making reservations that our room had...

In my many years of real estate sales, I generally found that when a property is offered for sale it is in top condition . . . There are five large windows in the sitting room of the Queen Victoria Suite that unfortunately have filtered views because of the trees. Pets are generally limited to our two ‘pet friendly’ rooms...

I can't even begin to describe the awesomeness of this place! The innkeepers, Margie and Randy are super welcoming. The B&B has a ton of character and it is SUPER clean. The breakfast is to die for. WAY better than most restaurants in the area. Definitely 5 stars for location, 5 stars for service, and 5 stars for food. The...

First, Heron Cay takes reservations on their own website not on trip advisor so all dates are reported as booked. It should read "not participating" not "no vacancies". Much better ti give Heron Cay a call. Our first trip to Mt Dora, we parked in town and walked to find a B & B. We could see the Lakeside Inn...

Last summer I stayed at Heron Cay for 2 week nights. I had expected it to be as described in the brochure. When I got there, I was told that there is only one room that can accomadate me (I am disabled and cannot climb stairs). It was outside in the back next to the garages. It was a nice...

This property is beautiful and the innkeepers, Randy and Margie, are gracious hosts. Each morning at 8 there is coffee and bread offered, then fruit at 9 and a hot breakfast at 10. Randy gives a wonderful run down of the hot treats and Margie takes time to serve coffee and greet all the guests. Breakfast is eaten on beautiful...

I came to this location to try and de-stress and relax after some Extremely stressful events. Randy and Margie were Exceptional Inn Keepers. When we arrived we were in awe of the massive mansion.

I would not recommend Heron Cay Lakeview Bed & Breakfast for a catered event of any kind. It was $25.00 per person + tax, plus 18% Gratuity. There was NO service provided. The food was served buffet style, including having to pour your own water and drinks. There was a charge of 3% charge for running my debit card through...
