  • Beautiful place, great location


    The Three Oaks rental in Mount Dora is a delightful location with remarkable gardens surrounding the property.

    The home provides everything guests could want. That made our get away feel just like home.

    The hosts provided plenty of information and recommendations to help us get familiar with Mount Dora and surrounding area. The walk around Lake Gertrude was remarkable.

    Highly recommendation this location for stress free, seamless vacation. We will be returning.

  • Three Oaks Cottage


    Three Oaks Cottage was an ideal rental. The cleanliness was outstanding! We loved the front porch and the yard space. The home was fully equipped with extra linens, paper goods, laundry supplies, and a fully stocked kitchen that included spices and baking supplies! For us, the location was perfect; we could walk to our son's home, just a couple of blocks away. We are hoping to re-book in a couple of months. We enjoyed a wonderful stay!
