Why Wayne Witt chose Mount Dora

'Feeds my soul' is the term used for years to express my feelings of Dory Place. We know that you will find a special feeling of home sweet home and will want to visit multiple times in the future.

What makes this cottage unique

The close proximity to the historic downtown area and the charm of Dory Place will win your heart time and time again. The antiquing experience is revealed as you travel from room to room with some of the price tags still on some of the objects.

Dory Place Is Adorable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a relaxing and memorable short vacation in Mt. Dora, living in Wayne and Forcia's lovely little cottage, Dory Place. This charming home was comfortable, secure, and equipped with everything a senior couple might need. In addition, its prime location -- walking distance to the picturesque town of Mt. Dora -- makes it one of "the best" deals available in Mt. Dora. We will definitely come back, and next time come for a longer stay. Many thanks to Wayne and Forcia!

Holidays at Dory Place

  • 5 of 5

As we pack up to leave beautiful Mt. Dora, having spent thanksgiving through Christmas here at Dory Place, I need to say that the house met all our expectations. We were comfortable and secure and enjoyed our stay very much. We especially enjoyed the screened in porch and backyard area...hammock, comfortable furniture and shade! The house is in a perfect location for walking to town and especially the lake and park area. Well done, Wayne and Forcia! Many thanks.

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Dory Place was a wonderful haven between outings to the shops & restaurants--so inviting, with a delightful mix of retro and modern comforts. Thankfully, the central AC was up-to-date & fully charged, a necessity for Florida summers!

We ate at several of the restaurants, to include the grand finale dinner at the Goblin Market, which lived up to the good reviews by Wayne and others. Pisces Rising and the Palms Grille were both great places for dinner. Cody's on 4th had delicious choices for breakfast, as did the Windsor Rose Tea Room. One Flight Up was excellent for our last lunch after we checked out. Between all the meals, we supported the local shops for unique items that we don't need, but must have!

It was a wonderful weekend spent in lovely surroundings. Thanks to Wayne & Forcia for sharing their little slice of paradise, and at a reasonable price!

lovely and convenient cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time in this lovely cottage in Mount Dora. Well maintained, nice convenient layout and a great kitchen. The cottage is complete for 4 people and makes you feel at home.

The location is nice and quiet, close to town, in a very nice neighbourhood.

Improvements on the yard were on their way, which will make the experience ven better for future visitors.

All that is offered at the home combined with the short walk to downtown makes for a great getaway for those looking for the ultimate Mt. Dora experience.

Lovely comfortable cottage within walking distance of Mt Dora. A very relaxing holiday away from todays hectic lifestle. The cottage has obviously been well looked after with loving care.

We enjoyed sitting on the Patio especially in the evening with a glass of wine.

Would definitely stay again.
