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.
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.

Light-colored furnishings? Check. Haint blue design accents? Check. Southern-style porches with rocking chairs where you can read a book, hang out with your companions, or enjoy a drink or two? Check! This wonderful, one-bedroom villa in Mount Dora is the very epitome of Southern hospitality. Despite its small size (it’s perfect for just three people), it has a big heart.

Most people come to Mount Dora for the annual festivals, but we might just pass them up and head to the city just to stay in the “cutest cottage in the cutest town.” From the get-go, this Airbnb vacation rental will greet you with its pastel-yellow facade, haint blue trim, and its punchy salmon-orange front door. Step inside and you’ll feel like you’re in a dollhouse, complete with puffy armchairs, cute chandeliers, light rattan furniture, and more. But this property isn’t just aesthetically pleasing — it’s also functional. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom, a beautiful backyard, where you can enjoy views of Lake Dora, an outdoor grill, and a full-size kitchen with a gas range and oven, and everything else you need.
