Innkeepers are delightful and the property is beautiful. We had such a relaxing visit. Great breakfast and wonderful service on all levels. The inn is immaculate, charming, and well kept. This is the place to stay...look no further!

We stayed 6 nights and traveled with our dog Bingo, and must say we were very comfortable in the Captain's Quarters room even better than I expected! Margie & Randy are very nice people that made us feel welcomed. We loved breakfast egg dishes & baked bread etc... Their 4 gorgeous, gentle Russian Wolf Hounds are definitely very well loved...

Two lady friends and I went to Heron Cay last week and had a 5 star experience! The hosts, Margie and Randy, shared their recipes, their pets, and their life stories. They made us feel as if we'd acquired a new family! The grounds are lovely and a close walk through the woods from Mt. Dora's downtown. Our rooms were...

After a horrible experience in a cabin in NC, my husband and I drove back to home. I had planned to spend the rest of the vacation at home. My husband said no way, pick someone to go. I remembered my daughter and SIL stayed at a B&B in Mt. Dora, so I got the name, called and spoke with...

My friend and I made a quick trip to Mt. Dora and needed to place to stay once we hit town. We called, and they had availability, so we headed to Heron Cay. The property is absolutely gorgeous on the outside. There are a few things that need maintenance, but the property and landscape is so gorgeous, we overlooked it....

My husband planned a trip to Mt. Dora to celebrate our wedding anniversary and when we pulled up to this B & B, I was thrilled about this Victorian charmer as we both wanted to stay there for quite some time. Margie greeted us at the door, showed us around the property and then escorted us to our beautiful, spacious...

This was our first visit to Heron Cay. We were quite surprised at the beauty of the place. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and have booked another trip for our birthday. We saw many of the rooms, each one quite charming with it's own personality. It is very close to the town with many quaint shops and not far from...

Stopped by to check this place out but did not stay here because the place is a dump! Other reviewers have correctly pointed out the mold, mildew, cobwebs, etc. The interior is supposed to be "quaint" but all it is is dirty and cluttered with enough junk to make it look like an indoor garage sale. Cats and dogs rule,...

We have been coming to the Heron Cay since April of 2013. We went on a whim one weekend and have fallen in love with the place ever since! This was our 5th time in 13 months and every time has been exceptional. The B&B is located just a short walk from town and once you arrive, there is really...
