Farnsworth House Bed & Breakfast

Welcome to the Farnsworth House Bed & Breakfast

Imagine sitting on the porch, a comfortable chair, the sounds of birds, a gentle breeze lulls the thoughts of everyday life away on a whisper, peace and tranquility ease into your mind, body and soul. Welcome to Farnsworth House, an historic home setting for a B&B at the edge of Mount Dora’s historic district and in the heart of Lake County, Florida’s outdoor paradise.

Farnsworth House offers an idyllic setting for seeking peace and quiet. Yet it also offers a wonderful location for basing yourself among outdoor adventures, golfing challenges, and the myriad opportunities to enjoy yourself in Central Florida. The porch is just the start here. Each room of this historic B&B is like dipping yourself into the warmth of a comfortable setting, like staying with a favorite aunt or grandma, with beds that
are inviting, some with sitting areas and kitchens that make your stay perfect for a weekend or week.

Breakfast in the dining room gets the day off right. Linger on the property and enjoy Florida’s beautiful weather, or take a 10-minute stroll into the town’s historic district for world-renown shopping, dining, and activities.

Plan for time in town to shop, browse, and antique. With a range of stores you’re going to find plenty from which to choose. Antique shops in town, around the edge and on highway 441 that circles the area will offer anyone seeking such special treasures plenty to choose from.

Restaurants will be at the heart of your day with many to choose from. A range from chains along 441 to special spots in town mean you can choose the setting, the food and the price range you’re interested in.

Mount Dora is a special place to get away to. With so many offerings year round, you’re here to enjoy, relax and recharge. But Mount Dora is also about events, that occur monthly, weekly and yearly with many more reasons to enjoy her offerings as well.


Visit their website for their latest packages, plan an event, bring the family, or meet new friends. This is the classic B&B, where your hosts are warm and friendly, the rooms feel comfortable and inviting, and evenings on the porch recall a simpler, more gentle time.
