This was our first stay at a B & B and we didn't know what to expect. The minute we met Vivian, we were made to feel right at home. Our first impression of the "Richard" room was of how charming and immaculate it was. We were very impressed....and it only got better from there. The etire grounds were as beautiful as the house. The breakfasts were superb and we met a wonderful group of people who were the other guests. The B & B is located within walking distance from town and very easy to get to from where ever you come from. We highly recommend Farnsworth House and when we return to Mount Dora, wouldn' t dream of staying anywere else!!

Vivian & Bob are like FAMILY!!!!!! First time to visit and very HAPPY with EVERYTHING! They are awesome in all aspects, from their hospitality, to the food (great recipes from Bob), to the location. Also, Bob is a great artist with many of his painting displayed throughout the house. Will definitely recommend and go back to visit.

I booked this B&B as a surpise anniversary weekend getaway for my husband. Vivian and Bob made us feel special from the minute we got there, until the day we left. By the time we left we felt like old friends. We have stayed at numerous B&Bs, and this one rates at the top!
