Whenever we talk of Central Florida, two heavyweights immediately come to mind: Orlando and Tampa. But there’s more to the region than the big cities. St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States, is located a short drive from Orlando. And then there’s Mount Dora, well-known in the Sunshine State for its endless string of annual festivals, numerous things to do, and its historic downtown district, where you can find streets lined with some of the best antique shops in the country. Here in Mount Dora, history and parties go hand in hand for sure. Come around when you’re in Central Florida and stay at one of these best Airbnb vacation rentals in Mt Dora, Florida.

1. Tastefully decorated historic cottage in a great location (from USD 95)

What better way to experience the rich history of Mount Dora than to stay in one of the city’s beautiful historic homes. This Airbnb called Liberty Cottage is a well-appointed, two-bedroom residence that’s just a quick walk away from some of Mount Dora’s most iconic attractions. There’s a small kitchen stocked with all the essentials, two private bedrooms (each with queen-size beds), a bathtub with shower, and a screened front porch, where you can enjoy some cocktails or iced tea on a hot Florida day. Local diners are about a block away from Liberty Cottage, in case you want to sample some of Mount Dora’s dining options.
