Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora is a throwback to the times of ladies with parasols and gentlemen in hat and coat. These are the days of simpler tastes, when taking a picnic to the grassy expanse and spending a Sunday looking out over the lake was as enjoyable to the participant as watching football or NASCAR is today. Lucky for visitors to Lakeside Inn today, both pursuits can be enjoyed.
The historic Inn, the oldest continually operating Inn in Florida, still offers that grassy expanse to compliment its long front porch where you can sit and rock the afternoon away or take in the breathtaking sunsets over Lake Dora.
You can also enjoy a football game or NASCAR race in the pub inside, take a seaplane ride over Lake Dora and Lake County, or even bring the dogs for a stay and in cooler months on a Sunday afternoon, enjoy PAWS, a town dog & human stroll concluding with a raffle. Such is life in this small town and amid the history and life today at Lakeside Inn.
Lakeside Inn is one of those places where simple beauty extends to those special and important times in life, such as weddings. Imagine exchanging vows and enjoying the memories of your special day in this beautiful and memorable setting.
Along with the twist of past and present, enjoy the free WiFi, stroll into town and enjoy dining and shopping, take a Craig Cat Tour of Lake Dora, or stop at The Gatehouse, the Lakeside Inn’s gift shop and gallery. There is a swimming pool for those hot afternoons and even a carriage ride in town. Looking to take home something handmade or some fresh vegetables? Lakeside is currently the site of the Mount Dora Open Air Market on Sunday afternoons.
Lakeside is a throwback indeed, to when people took a stroll and enjoyed it, sat upon a long open porch and relaxed, and enjoyed just enjoy the day pass by. It is a throw back that has found a place in today, as so many people rediscover there are simpler and relaxing ways to enjoy life…
