Vintage Home Built In 1888 Located In Historic Downtown Mt. Dora
About Lisa Caravette
Both nurses, we needed a getaway where we could relax, meet new friends and enjoy nature and the Lakefront. We found all of that in Mt. Dora.
Lisa Caravette purchased this House in 2012
Why Lisa Caravette chose Mt Dora
This house called our name. The vintage charm was exactly what we were looking for. It is what you think of in a home in Mt. Dora. It needed some tender loving care and we gave it that with a lot of hard work but it was worth the effort.
What makes this House unique
The location is absolutely amazing. One short block to downtown, yet on a safe, quiet street. Easy stroll to the lake, fishing dock, lighthouse, kids' park and nature path & boardwalk. Pick up some groceries on the way in, park your car and you never have to drive again!

Our family of four (two couples) had a lovely stay in Mount Dora. We were looking for the classic American wooden house with a porch and in this house, we found it! It is centrally located and there is a lot to see and do in the immediate area. Actually, you see more alligators here than in the Everglades. The house was well appointed and stocks were adequate. For American standards, it is an old house, so you have to adapt your expectations to that. Mount Dora is ideally located for trips to Orlando, Ocala and the Kennedy Space Center. The hosts were perfect. If only Florida was closer to our home in Holland, we would come more often! Thanks for the hospitality!
Wonderful home close to everything.
We loved our stay at the treehouse. The home was well appointed with everything we needed. The owners added wonderful Christmas decor so we could enjoy the holiday with our children just like we were at home.
Great place to stay when visiting Mount Dora.
Lovely little house in great location. Very clean and very Mount Dora! Owner attentive to guests needs.
Wonderful 1888 Home
We were fortunate to rent this lovely home for a weekend in Mt. Dora. The house was built in 1888 and is today still in its original glory. There are 2 full bedrooms, a game room with a bed, living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and a very large fenced in yard. The home is equipped with everything you could need. It is also located in a great neighborhood within walking distance to all the downtown shops, restaurants and pier. Mt Dora is a wonderful quaint town where you can relax or keep as busy as you wish. We dined out at a few fantastic restaurants and went into many of the different shops (from antiques, locally made crafts and things to almost anything you can imagine). We also went out on a boat ride, rode Segways (which we said we would never do yet had so much fun), went to a Halloween dog parade and went to an arts & crafts show which had some great musicians playing. You can find so many different fun things to do in Mt. Dora and this is the perfect house to use as your home base. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home. Cindy & Duane
Where to begin?
Oh my goodness! We spent the weekend at this beautiful old home, and I'm pretty certain we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. It was our first time in Mount Dora, and we loved every minute. The home was cozy, comfortable, and certainly special. We spent more time out and about, but enjoyed the house so much. So close to everything, we had fabulous meals, had our first lobster roll, wonderful breakfast at the loft, and went on the Premiere Boat Tour right around the corner. The tour was a blast. 28.00 a person and definitely worth it. After talking with the town people, we are planning a trip during the holidays, for sure. My fingers are crossed that we will be able to stay in The Treehouse again once we lock down our dates. Thank You so much for sharing your treasured home.
Loved staying here. So comfy and the decor is fun. The sunroom was so cute. We had coffee on the patio each morning and walked to the lighthouse for the sunset each eve. Thank you Lisa and Peter, and daughter, for providing such a wonderful house.
We are in the historic district of downtown mt. Dora. Walk to festivals, restaurants, bars. Walk to the lake, the nature walk, parks, sunday morning farmer's market. The location of this vintage home will not disappoint.
