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...

My husband and I travel between Miami and Tallahassee quite often. We are constantly looking for a place to stay for one night midway between both places. At the last minute we decided to visit the Mt. Dora area, which was a little out of the way but well worth it. We chose Farnsworth House based on the excellent reviews....

So very amazing. My sister came for a visit from New England and I couldn't wait to take her to Mount Dora. I picked this Inn for us to visit. We stayed for 2 nights and was heartbroken when it came time to say goodbye to the most caring couple, Kim and Soren. When they talk to you, you can...

Needed a quiet but interesting get away and found the perfect spot at Farnsworth B&B. The hosts Kim and Soren were lovely and were as accommodating as possible. The rooms were large and extremely clean with nice amenities and linens. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were refurbished to look like the period. Renovated private baths that were big and...

My husband and I stayed at the Farnsworth House for a night. Not only is the place immaculate, but the rooms and grounds feel homey and comfortable. The breakfast of quiche, sausage, toast, yogurt, fruit, juice and coffee left me more than satisfied. It was so enjoyable conversing with the other guests over breakfast, too. Kim and Sorren have a...

Stayed in the carriage house, Golf Room. It is in the center of two other rooms. Apparently the walls are not insulated well because I was kept up most of the night by the neighbor's snoring. Small bathroom was not a problem for my 6 foot husband. Snacks, which are replenished daily, are a nice treat. Breakfast was a meager...

The Farnsworth House is gorgeous and the staff is super nice and accommodating. My wife and I stayed in the carriage house. The room was super clean. We heard the main house rooms are a little larger so we will be trying to stay in the main house next time.

I traved to Mt. Dora with my 83 year-old mother who has some difficulty with her walking but this was not of concern with the great care and attention received during our stay. The hosts volunteered to help at every possibility to help assist her up the staircase to our suite which was most appreciated. I can also say that...
