The beginning ...

So many people dream of owning a bed & breakfast someday. Trading in their corporate 9 to 5 for a casual lifestyle filled with leisure and hospitality. A schedule focused around good food and good people. Cuisine & conversation. It's an opportunity to pursue one's favorite hobbies ... from gardening to furniture making, cooking to crafts, collecting art or making art, and mostly entertaining and making new friends.

I traded in my power pumps for flip flops 3 years ago when I left my high tower job to move to Mount Dora. I've never looked back. We've made some lifelong friends with fellow business owners in this town, and now the Innkeepers of Mount Dora have formed a group and created this blog to be more connected with and give back to our community.

From loads of laundry, to lazy times sipping wine on the front porch, community events, and spicing up the kitchen, we hope to give you a taste of what it is like during a day in the life of an innkeeper.
