LAKESIDE LOFT/CHALET APARTMENT WITH BOAT DOCK ON LAKE DORA.

Mount Dora Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, Studio + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Privacy with 'Sunset views to die for'.

This spacious Swiss style chalet /loft is located on Lake Dora, halfway between Mount Dora and Tavares on the north side of the lake. It has a private entrance, located on a quiet cul-de-sac, with a great view of Lake Dora and plenty of parking for a trailer etc. This unit is ON THE LAKE...not across the street from the lake where you have to cross a road to get to the water.

Wake up in the morning to the sunrise streaming into your 1st floor bedroom in your queen size bed or take the spiral staircase up to the queen bed in the Loft. The full kitchen has recently been remodeled and has a Refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, tea maker, blender, Crockpot and dishwasher etc. Laundry room is nearby in the garage.. Sit in the dining nook area and look at the lake or relax on the porch in the courtyard under the huge Orange tree and watch the birds up in the huge 200 year old Live Oak trees that are covered with Spanish moss.

The covered boat house/ patio is only a short walk thru the back yard. Wood Ducks nest in the early spring and blue herons,egrets, sand cranes and cormorants are regular visitors. An EAGLE NEST is only 100 yards to the west and can easily be seen from the boathouse dock especially at sunset as they hunt for fresh fish by plucking them out of the water after a high speed dive. (high power binoculars provided- they are in the boat house). This Loft Apartment is very Private and is located on a quiet cul-de sac. The yard is beautifully landscaped and the neighborhood is very quiet and safe.

Plenty of restaurants nearby and shopping in Mount Dora will keep you busy all day if you wish or you can take a day shopping to one of Orlando's many fabulous malls. Plenty of variety in the shops or pubs and restaurants in Mount Dora, Tavares or Leesburg. Downtown Mt Dora is 2 minutes away and Tavares downtown is 1 to 2 minutes away.

Keywords: Swiss Chalet with Lower level Queen bed and Queen in Loft - Two Queen beds.

Born in Northern Kentucky and raised in the Cincinnati, Ohio area Bob Toerner has had the good fortune to have lived in many states over the years.(Texas, Mississippi, Michigan, Kentucky and Ohio. He would be more than willing to show you the local fare and guide you toward any 'adventures ' you may wish to try. Bob moved here 9 years ago after falling in love with the area while training here in Mount Dora to get his 'Seaplane' rating. Bob has 3 children, a daughter and 2 sons in Kentucky along with 8 grandchildren. He has logged over 2000 hours in seaplanes and spent several years in Television at WLWT TV in Cincinnati and also had an Audio Visual Contracting company that installed Video packages in over 250 Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants all over the US.

Bob Toerner purchased this chalet in 2004

This area is so 'laid back' with plenty to do. It is far enough from the direct hit of hurricanes yet the weather is warmer and having large expanses of fresh water. Thats why they call it Lake County I guess.

Eclectic city of Mt Dora has tons of shops and restaurants to explore. Local nature preserves and parks abound and the city of Tavares 2 miles East has just gone through a major upgrade with a new Marina and several nice restaurants, most with outdoor patios.

GORGEOUS PROPERTY, IDEAL LOCATION, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL OWNER. EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS.

  • 5 of 5
We spent four nights in this property, and would do it again at the first available opportunity. From start to finish, it was probably the best stay we've ever had in a vacation rental. Bob, the owner, was very accessible and provided a great deal of help in getting there and finding our way, as it was only our second trip to the area. The property had everything we needed, and much more. In fact, we were able to see and do everything that Bob had suggested, and then some. We saw the gorgeous sunsets, the bald eagles and their nest, blue herons, and other wildlife. Hard to imagine if you haven't been there, but the VRBO ad actually underpromised while the property itself clearly overdelivered. The location is quiet, secluded, beautiful and relaxing, while only minutes from downtown Mt. Dora and Tavares. If you plan to stay here, I'd recommend adding an additional day or two to your itinerary just to say on the property and enjoy it. This wasn't our first choice (that was in downtown Mt. Dora), but it turned out to be our BEST choice, and we're already planning a return trip to this wonderful place for next year.

A trip down the Dora Canal is a must. This canal links lake Dora with the other lakes of the Harris Chain of lakes. The Dora Canal is famous for it's natural beauty reflective of the term 'Old Florida' with the thick hanging spanish moss from the overhanging cyprus and live oak trees. Many species of birds abound along with alligators and turtles. Tour boats make several trips each day and they pass right by the house and the boathouse. There are regular Bass fishing tournaments on the Lake here. In fact ESPN has a big BASS tournament here every year. You can see contestants right here in the back yard. In fact this Loft has been used by Edwin Evers a top ranked Bass fisherman.
