Innkeepers, Kim and Soren, made this B&B a wonderful experience from the moment we walked through the door. Taking time to give recommendations for dining, shopping and sightseeing was helpful. They have taken great care in maintaining the beauty of this historical home. Our room was impeccably clean and with very comfortable beds. Having stayed in many B&B's over the...

Caribbean friendliness and Swedish cleanliness....Kim and Sören do a great job at their B&B in Mt Dora and are good hosts. The location may not be the best, in the sense that some homes nearby were not as well maintained as they could be, but the B&B was truly very nice. Breakfast was great and well served. Thank you Kim...

From the wonderful warm welcome to the fond farewell, our stay at Farnsworth House was truly special. Kim and Soren are very attentive hosts and checked on us to ensure we were comfortable and well taken care of.

Excellent! Quaint, cozy and very clean. Owners Kim and Soren are very friendly and hospitable. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. We will definitely plan to stay there again. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at the Windsor Rose, and spent a great deal of time walking around the town in and out of the many shops.

Been wanting to visit this lovely place for a while and I was not disappointed. Our suite was beautifully finished and decorated with many antique items and made you feel to stay much longer. It was a lovely environment to come 'home' to, and the owner Kim made it all the more so. Our breakfast was in a traditional dining...

What an absolutely beautiful place Farnsworth House is to stay, this B&B is professionally run by caring owners offering welcoming service. Free Wifi, free bottled water, snacks in the room and delicious home cooked breakfast and a truly lovely historical setting.

The room was very clean, comfortable and the hosts were delightful. Nice location, not too close to the downtown so it was very quiet. Very accommodating for a late arrival which was very much appreciated. The shower head needed to be replaced in our bathroom. The fresh fruit and yogurt were nice for breakfast but the hot dish was quite...

A cosy house full of traditional charm and character. We felt immediately at home because of the genuine and personal touches that the owners have bestowed on the place and how they looked after us.
