Property Photo


In 1887, Leander Farnsworth, a shoe merchant from Detroit, Michigan purchased this property. It remained in his family until the 1930's. In 1992, the property was purchased and made into a Bed & Breakfast. It has remained a Historical B & B ever since. There have been four owners during the period of 1992 to 2018. The present owners have taken great pride in this Historic Mt. Dora property and have restored it to its present condition. As a result, the reputation of the Farnsworth House and its revenue stream have grown exponentially...Mount Dora continues to thrive and has received many awards and national accolades to include "The Best Small Town in Florida". The town and the Farnsworth House compliment each other in a "win-win" situation. This beautiful property contains 9 separate suites, each with their own bathroom and seven with kitchenettes, within two historic buildings on a one-acre site in downtown Mt. Dora. The size, décor, and layouts are different in each suite. As a result, this property can be utilized for daily and weekly rentals, or as monthly and short-term rentals. The consistent feature of the property is the gorgeous condition throughout and the serene downtown site. The sale includes furnishings and equipment, business name and Marketing/Advertising tools.
