Although the people who owned this B and B were very pleasant and accommodating, we felt that they were not your typical Bed and Breakfast owners. They were not particularly engaging or friendly as most other proprieters have been. They basically did the minimum to make it sufficient. Additionally, the place needed a bit of a "facelift", especially the bedroom....

I must say reading this review was very disappointing for this long time innkeeper. We work very hard to keep the inn fresh and like new, and the breakfast options interesting and delicious! Upon their arrival I greeted these guests at the door, showed them the rest room that they desperately needed after their long drive, then showed them around...

I have been coming here for nearly 20 years and thoroughly recommend this incredible bed & breakfast. When visiting the Orlando for business or pleasure, this is the only place I will consider staying. It's all the little extras that Carole puts in that make this home away from home truly extraordinary. The home itself is exquisite, beautiful surrounds, incredible...

This is a Great place to stay. We especially liked the decor... we've stayed at B&Bs which are stuffed to the rafters with kitsch to the point where we were nervous to move around for fear of breaking something... Thurston is much more subdued giving it a feeling of homey, normalcy. The room was very comfortable with extensive amenities -...

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Thurston house. Carol has incorporated little touches throughout to make your stay comfortable. Wished we had more time to enjoy the screened porches, including hammock on the second floor, but, we were attending a wedding. Carol was so responsive to our dietary needs (gluten free for me, dairy free for my husband)...

We chose to stay at Thurston House on our last dat before the flight home from Orlando airport. We loved the area. It's everything you would not expect from Orlando! After a warm welcome from Carol and a tour of the house we were treated to wine and cheese on the porch with a wonderful view of the lake. Joe...

Beautifully restored, romantic, comfortable, friendly host, superb breakfast (and plenty of it,) wine/cheese, snacks, comfy porches overlooking the lake, excellent mattress, even wifi. This is the perfect place to stay for adults. We were in the Hirsch room which we prefer over the O'Heir as we are not sunrise people, but all 3 rooms are lovely and just fine. And...

We met friends here for a wonderful visit--charming decor, delicious breakfasts and afternoon snacks, and enticing rocking chairs on the big porch overlooking the water! Carole and Joe made us all welcome and helped us find great restaurants (Try Antonio's where we went twice!) and local sights including the marvelous Tiffany museum in Winter Park and the beautiful camellia and...

One of the best bed and breakfasts have ever stayed in. Carol the innkeeper aims to please. Her breakfasts are great. The rooms are just beautiful. Quiet. All kinds of little things that make you feel special. Location also good. Highly recommend

Spent 2 wonderful nights here. Carole has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are large, immaculate, and beautifully decorated. The beds/linens are very comfortable, and extra towels, chocolates, candles, fridge access with water bottles, contribute to a great experience. The breakfasts are amazing: expertly prepared food, a lovely dining room, a beautifully set table. They are...

This was our 2nd stay at the Thurston House Bed and Breakfast. It was a great time of peace and R & R for us.
