This delightful B&B was simply outstanding! Kim and Sorin were delightful and made our Valentine's Day getaway trip perfect! We stayed in a Deluxe Queen Room (Glyn & Kiddie Suite). It was well worth it!

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend, looking for something away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando. Farnsworth House had rave reviews and we were thrilled to find a vacancy for our last minute trip. At .75 miles outside of the adorable downtown, it is in an absolutely ideal location if you like to explore by...

The owners of the B/B were nice and cordial. My hubby and I love to visit different B/B for the breakfast but we were not impressed with the breakfast here. It wasn't bad it was just average. Our room was right off from the dining room on the first floor so it's not the quietest room but convenient if you...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. Kim and Sorenson, the owners, couldn't have been more welcoming. This was our first experience staying at a b&b. We loved it. The room was spacious and very clean. Nice, thick towels in the bathroom. Snacks provided in the room. Breakfast every day was delicious. Kim went out of her way...

Several friends and I decided to spend New Years Eve weekend in Florida to escape the cold of Atlanta. We settled on a town in Florida that I had not heard of: Mount Dora. It's a small bucolic town sitting on Lake Dora, about a 45-minute drive NW of Orlando. Instead of the usual hotel route, we booked Farnsworth House,...

Cute apartment like rooms. Kim and Soren, the innkeepers are warm and welcoming. Fabulous breakfast and the inn is walkable to town, no need to use your car. Go for the Christmas lights. Mount Dora is very festive.

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Farnsworth House on the weekend of Nov 18-20, 2016 for the Renenger's Antique Extravaganza. The owner Kim has done an outstanding job remodeling the property. Her attention to detail is second to none. I intend to return again in January 2017 and will always make this my go to destination. Kim and her...

The hosts of the bed and breakfast were so kind, hospitable and caring. The food was very good. The rooms in the cottage house in the back are on the small side which they made us very aware of. Stayed the last night in the Glen and Kitty room, which was more roomy. Also some rooms have very small TV's...
