About Grandviewbb

living room with antique furniture

Grandview Bed & Breakfast is Old Florida refined.  We are a full service B&B, offering Gourmet Farm to Table Breakfasts, Concierge, Event Planning, Wake Up Call, Daily Housekeeping and Ironing Services. 

Known as the Historic William Watt House circa 1906, the Grandview is a traditional Florida farm house with original windmill on site. While we keep things traditional, we have also incorporated many modern luxuries, such as private baths in guestrooms, Saltwater pool, daily Aerial Yoga and natural bath products.

Mr. Watt, who originally built the home introduced corrugated cardboard as a packaging medium for citrus. Watt was from New York and built the Grandview as a Winter home.  We would love to show you original pictures of the home and vintage Mount Dora photos while you visit. 

Eco friendly living is extremely important to us.  We are a Green lodging destination and work hard to conserve energy, water and waste.  Learn more while you are visiting with us. 

Grandview Bed and Breakfast is located in the Historic Area within two walking blocks of downtown Mount Dora, on the corner of Third and Grandview.    Enjoy shops, fantastic restaurants and beautiful Lake Dora only steps away. Escape to a time gone by as you sit on our rocking chairs and the only sounds you hear are faint Church bells or birds singing

The team at the Grandview appreciates the amazing jobs our military, police and fire professionals do everyday. Call today for your special rate.

Your Innkeepers, Gwendolyn & Dennis Smith

We know our local vendors and personally select the delicious products you will enjoy.Most of our trips include visits to local farms including Lake Meadow Naturals Farm in Ocoee, FL, where we have found the most amazing cage free eggs and some of the best cheeses that we can’t wait for you to try.

While you’re visiting, a fun way to start your day is to grind your own coffee beans in our vintage grinder. You’ll savor every last drop of coffee just a bit more after your fun experience. Our coffee comes from local coffee roaster, Wild Bear Coffee in Tavares.Coffee is organic and ground fresh daily.It’s served in either a Carafe, French Press or Pour Over.
