This was our second time here. Joe and Carol were as welcoming as ever. The house is a real haven away from the madness of the themepark side of Orlando. Breakfast is a treat. Carols's homemade cakes are delicious. We will definitely stay here again.

It is always such an honor when guests come back again, and even from another country too! We are very fortunate in our location, near enough to the theme park area, but certainly a world away. We hope to see you again in another couple years, or before of course. Carole

We loved our 3 night stay at Thurston House. It is a lovingly restored historic house surrounded by natural beauty. On a lake, surrounded by trees with a variety of birds, this is a peaceful retreat that feels as though it is truly isolated from the noise of the city, yet it is minutes away from historical and dining locations....

I am SO thrilled to have discovered a gem of a bygone era in Orlando. The Thurston House is a gracious 1880's home with 3 well-appointed bedrooms--each with their own bath. The proprietors, Carole & Joe are friendly and hospitable with plenty of suggestions of local museums & delicious, non-chain places to eat in varying price ranges. They offer hearty...

Charming old house with modern amenities. The service and breakfast were first class. Wish I had more time to enjoy the Thurston House. Will be back when in Maitland. Usually stay in hotels while in business, but was intrigued by Trip Advisor recommendations.

Thurston House on Lake Ave was a real surprise to us. Nestled on a small lake in central Florida it was like stepping back in time to a grander era, in New England! Beautifully decorated and well cared for, the house has three bedrooms, two sitting areas and an amazing screened porch as well as a charming dining room. A...

Carole and Joe were gracious hosts. They were very accommodating with food choices and serving time. The room we stayed in was very comfortable -- it was very hot in Florida the days we were there and the central air conditioning was welcome. We enjoyed hearing about the history of Thurston House and the beautiful heartwood pine it is trimmed...
