WATERFRONT! The Boat House is an 800sf private residence built directly over Lake Dora offering panoramic lakefront views. Located on Mount Dora's Famous Boat House Row, right in the heart of downtown Mount Dora, where you can roll out of bed and walk a few steps to one of the quaint coffee shops. The Boat House was once a tin boat shed with floors open to the water and housed two boats. Today, you will find warm, cozy furnishings, comfortable beds, a quiet location and sunsets every evening!

The space
The only way to be closer to the lake is to be a FISH!

You will never want to leave!

This is the PERFECT Honeymoon Suite!

Mount Dora is known for its historic downtown (founded in1880) with antiques, unique gift shops and award winning restaurants all owned and operated by locals.... You won't find any chains here. Enjoy a Punk-N-Spice latte at the Edge coffee shop or a glass of wine and some live entertainment at Maggie's Attic. Top notch fine dining at local favorites The Goblin Market, The Olive Branch and Pisces Rising. The live entertainment and excellent fried cod or haddock at the Magical Meat Boutique can't be beat. Enjoy the holiday lights from the balcony at One Flight Up and try the Cheesy Onion Dip or stop in the alley at The Salted Fry and try the best fries and tuna melt EVER! Fiesta Grande is popular for their delicious food and vegan options, and 2 for 1 Margaritas everyday -- And don't forget to get ice cream at Scoops on 5th and breakfast at Cody's on 4th.... too many to list! You will discover so many more restaurants and shops during your stay and we hope you will share your favorites.

Farmers Market every Sunday 9-3, walk up the street.

Palm Island Park - Walk through downtown and past the Historic Lakeside Inn and Mt. Dora Marina until you find Palm Island Park - a long boardwalk over Lake Dora and hiking in the woods which is a great place to walk a dog. You will most likely spot an alligator or two in the water.

Enjoy nearby springs which are open year round with water temperature of 72 degrees:
Kelly Park - Rock Springs Run - Kings Landing kayaking
Wekiva Springs Park - canoe, kayak, swim, hike
Alexander Springs - Ocala State Park
Blue Springs - Orange City where you will see manatees in the cold weather

Renniger's Antique and Flea market open Friday - Sunday.

Trader Mae's Flea Market in Apopka near Kelly Park/Rock Springs Rd. Great little flea market with many local gifts and items. Check it out before or after you go to the spring!

Fish right from the Boathouse.
