    We thoroughly enjoyed two nights at this bed & breakfast. We would recommend it as the “place” to go for a rest and to be pampered and spoiled. Carol and Kathy could honestly put their cinnamon rolls on the market. They were wonderful, kind and very accomodating. many kudos and thank- yous!

    Originally we were going to stay 3 days but we were enjoying the stay so much that we extended it to 5 days and were sorry to have to leave.
    WE WILL DEFINITELY RETURN!
    What a wonderful getaway!
    The house was beautifully decorated and the innkeepers
    Carole and Kathy were delightful and very welcoming.
    The freshly backed Cinnamon Rolls in the morning is something we looked forward to every morning. The fresh baked cookies in the room totally spoiled us.
    During the stay we learned to play the Mexican Train Domino Game.
    We hope to return as soon as possible.
    We have visited B&B’s from California to Maine and would rate this
    as the best we have visited. In our book they rate 5 Stars.

    We just returned from a two night stay at the Cinnamon Inn. We had a fabulous time. Mount Dora is a charming town, known for its many festivals during the year. Local businesses offer unique gifts and antiques year round. The bed and breakfast accommodations were delightful. The bedroom was very large and the shower was big enough for three! Linens were changed each day and the grounds are lovely, still, and charming. The location is close to several small communities and the inn keepers knock themselves out to ensure your stay is very pleasant. In addition to leaving a plate of fresh baked cookies in your room each day. a small refrigerator was provided for your convenience. A reading library and an array of movies were arms length away. For movie watchers, a microwave and popcorn were also available. Coffee was found each morning right in the hall outside your bedroom door. The cinnamon rolls were to die for and a full breakfast was provided each morning.

    Both of the hostesses were friendly and made their guests feel right at home. They are the type of folks you feel you’ve known all your life. I heartily recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for exceptional accommodations in this area of Florida.

    Although our stay was a very brief and rushed one nighter, we just loved the Cinnamon Inn. The rooms, the delish breakfast, the wonderful inn itself and mostly Kathy and Carole made it a “go to” spot for us. Everything is so personalized and comfortable. Like others, we loved (and ate) all the chocolate chip cookies and the cinnamon buns. It was a joy for us and we will return when we have more time. Thak you for a wonderful stay.

    We stayed at the Cinnamon Inn with family members from out of state for our daughter’s wedding. Upon check-in, we were greeted by our wonderful hosts, Carole & Kathy who made us feel like we knew them all our lives. The rooms were beautiful and spacious, beds very comfortable and a plate of chocolate chip cookies was an added touch.

    The rehearsal dinner for the wedding was held at the Cinnamon Inn and the food was absolutely delicious – roast beef melted in your mouth. It was a ‘family’ atmosphere, which was so much nicer then a restaurant and they went out of their way to make it a wonderful, special and memorable dinner.

    The morning breakfasts were delicious and the cinnamon rolls awesome. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Mount Dora.

    We just can’t say enough about the Cinnamon Inn. Experience it for yourself.

    What a beautiful and comfortable, homey atmosphere. Kathy and Carole went out of their way to provide a wonderful rehearsal dinner for our son’s wedding. Family of the bride stayed there and we all had such a stress free end to a really busy day filled with wedding preparations. We met new friends as well as enjoyed old friends and family. It couln’t have been any more wonderful. The rooms are beautifully decorated, roomy and spotless. This is a gem hidden in the lovely township of Tangerine. We live only 2 miles away and will recommend it to everyone we know. It is so serene and a great get away place. Thank you Kathy and Carole for your graciousness and for truly going out of your way to make everyone feel at home.

    We stayed for a small weekend getaway and it was awesome! Kathy and Carole are really sweet and the cinnamon rolls are amazing!

    We had a very lovely time and would recommend this B & B to anyone who wants to escape life for awhile and just enjoy the peaceful, quiet time with their special someone!

  9. Don & Kay Mosure says:

    We won a night’s stay and could not have been happier with our upgraded accomodations. The King sized poster bed was beautiful and quite comfy. Carole and Kathy made sure every detail was attended to…even a chilled bottle of champagne to help us celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. The relaxed atmosphere and charming innkeepers made us feel right at home. The cinnamon rolls and entire breakfast were delicious. Anyone looking for a quiet getaway should definitely check out the Cinnamon Inn. Also looks like a great place for a group luncheon or dinner for any occasion.

  10. Karla and David says:

    From the moment we knock on the door to the time we left we were treated wonderfully. The personal touches provided by Kathy and Carol did not go unnoticed. The inn is filled with warmth and comfort. The rooms are clean, large and unique. Everything you could think of was available. Coffee available bright and early and it was right outside your room. The cookies were a special touch.

    Can’t forget about the cinnamon rolls or the full breakfast. Hats off to the Kathy and Carole, great job! Keep up the good work.

    We look forward to the next visit to the Cinnamon Inn.

    I stayed at The Cinnamon Inn this past weekend for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was delightful. When Carole heard about the occasion she had a home-made chocolate birthday cake, complete with candle and matches, waiting for us when we arrived. The cake was perfect and was just a preview of the culinary joys still to come.

    Breakfast was fabulous and filling (and fattening, but worth it). We didn’t even need lunch but after our day of exploring we found more goodies waiting for us in our room.

    Oh, and the room! It was beautiful, very clean and had a Jacuzzi tub to die for. There was plenty of hot water, blankets, pillows, plush robes – like home but better. As others have said here, Kathy and Carole went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and I can’t wait to get back there.

  12. This was my first experience with a B&B, and I have to say I LOVED it! I have been told all B&B’s are not the same and with that being said the standards have been set very high after staying at Cinnamon Inn. There was not a moment of time that I didn’t enjoy the atmosphere while at the Cinnamon Inn. I truly felt like I was at a relative’s home. Thank you Kathy and Carole for your humbleness. You truly have a servants heart. I would and will recommend it to anyone wishing to experience an unforgetable stay.

  13. Love your site man keep up the good work

  14. What a wonderful way to spend our 53rd anniversary. Our stay at the Inn was great. The hospitality and the food were both superb. We have visited B&B’s all across the U.S. and this one is at the top of our list. Thanks Kathy and Carole for a great time.
    P.S. The Cinnamon Rolls were excellent.

  15. Rob and Luanne Haver says:

    We just spent a very relaxing and pampered New Years Eve at the Cinnamon Inn. The room was filled with all the luxuries we could have wanted, a stocked refridgerator. bottle of champagne, fresh baked cookies daily, a two person jacuzzi, a light switch activated fireplace – the works! Get the Hilda room if it’s available!

    The smell of the cinnamon rolls filled the house every morning calling us out of bed and down to a hearty breakfast. Carole and Kathy were gracious and generous hosts. We also truly appreciated the military discount.

    We look forward to staying again the next time we are in Mount Dora!

    Dear friends,
    You may recall a pesky skinny Irishman that was not recently a guest at your establishment, but whose mother and father-in-law were. Julie and I stayed at Mary Miller’s house across the street. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I posted a review of The Cinnamon Inn on yelp.com. It looks like someone else beat me to the punch to give you your first review though! So, now you have two. Also, I wanted to let you know that you have a typo on your website – instead of “policies”, you have “polices”. Anyway, thanks again for being so nice to us while we were down there and making us cookies and cinnamon rolls. I’m sure we’ll be down there again – Mary mentioned something about home improvement projects she wants my help with!!!!
    Regards,
    Cory

    We love the Cinnamon Inn. Lance and I have been here three times and every time it’s been wonderful. Carole & Kathy make you feel so much at home. The breakfast is awesome!!!

    Looking forward to our next visit..

  19. George & Cheryl says:

    Just returned from a great get-away weekend at the Inn. What a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. Every amenity was provided, along with welcoming and warm hospitality from Kathy & Carol. The cinnamon rolls are beyond delicious, the cookies a wonderful treat, and breakfast the best. We’ve stayed at many inns, and this is one of the best. We would highly recommend the Inn for business, pleasure, or just because.

  20. Barbara and Brad says:

    Brad and I spent a long weekend at the Cinnamon Inn over Memorial Day. We enjoyed it so much! The room was large and comfortable, the bath was amazing, and the bed was HUGE. We especially enjoyed the hospitality of Kathy and Carole. They were so gracious and welcoming! The cookies were great, the breakfast delicious, but, the cinnamon rolls were INCREDIBLE! We’ll be back…you can bet on that!

  21. On July 22, 2011, my wife and I had the pleasure of staying with Kathy and Carole at the Cinnamon Inn Bed & Breakfast. http://Www.TheCinnamonInn.com (352) 383-6541. From the start, we were impressed by their friendly, professional and courteous manners. We were greeted with such warmth, it made us feel as if we had just arrived home. We were treated to fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and milk upon arrival. We were beginning to feel so spoiled. When we booked for Hilda’s room, we let Kathy know we would be celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary, and she asked if we would like a bottle of wine, and if so, if we wanted a red or white. We choose red, Kathy asked what red we would prefer, and she had our choice bottle waiting for us in our room. Later, we enjoyed a wonderful romantic relaxed evening in the whirlpool tub with our wine. In the morning, we were treated to the best fresh baked cinnamon rolls, a fresh fruit cup as well as fresh baked biscuits and a wonderful egg casserole. We had a wonderful relaxing homey stay with Kathy and Carole. We are already planning our next visit. John “Jack” & Carole W,

    Thanks for the memories.

    Thanks for the cinnamon rolls.

  25. Wendy and Darin Hinton says:

    What a delightful stay you will have at the Cinnamon Inn! It was the delicious homemade cinnamon roll that got me there, but that and so much more that will draw us back. Kathy and Carole seriously go above and beyond, and every imaginable detail is thoughtfully taken care of. We hope to celebrate many more anniversaries there. Thank you for the wonderful southern hospitality…it was more than worth every cent!

  26. Bruce and Elaine says:

    Elaine and I love to travel and have stayed at many bed and breakfasts. This past week we had the distinct pleasure of staying at the Cinnamon Inn. Never have we stayed anywhere where we have felt so welcomed and attended to! Kathy and Carol are absolutely wonderful hostesses! they truly have the knack for being able to make you feel truly cared for without “hovering”

    The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas, our room was welcoming and comfortable. Elaine especially loved the tub! Right outside the room on the bookshelves are a huge selection of paperback books (you can take one home who don’t finish it!) and a nice selection of DVDs.

    I could go on and on, and talk about the wonderful breakfasts the great fresh-baked cookies and cold milk every afternoon, the care and attention they paid to all the little details…but I will sum up this review with two words: “cinnamon rolls.” Warm, from the oven, sweet sticky exquisitely melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon rolls!

    if you’re anywhere near Mount Dora do yourself a favor and treat yourself with a night or two at the Cinnamon Inn. You’ll be very very glad you did!

  27. Jay & Nancy Smith says:

    We just stayed at the Cinnamon Inn celebrating our anniversary and from the moment we got there we were just delighted!! Kathy and Carole greet you with such warmth and kindness! We booked the Hilda Room and we could not have been happier! The rooms are decorated just lovely and they helped make this weekend just special! The food is just wonderful and you do not leave hungry! They make you feel like part of the family! They are not just professional and nice, they go a step above and you just don’t see that anymore! We will definitely come again!

    We had a fabulous time for a long week end for our birthdays. Specially in the morning with delicious breaksfasts and awesome cinannamon rolls.
    Really we received very lovely attention. Thank you very much again Carole and Kathy for everythings.

  29. Barbara Joensen says:

    March 3rd 2012 , my husband and I spent 24 hrs with out our 18 month old and before the birth of our 2nd son would be born we chose Cinnamon Inn to get away. We LOVED IT!!! Kathy and her mom Carol were so warm and friendly our room was just want we love…a double whir pool tub, large shower and a king size bed. Breakfast was so tasty and very filling. We loved everything about the Cinnamon Inn!!!

  30. David from Gainesville says:

    We just had a wonderful little stay and the Cinnamon Inn. Stayed in the Hilda room, beautiful 4-poster king bed, took a Jacuzzi bath by candlelight and sipped champagne, just fabulous. Enjoyed the river rock walk-in shower. But the icing on the cake, actually cinnamon buns, was Kathy and Carole’s warmth and colorful personalities and great hospitality. And amazing breakfast. And the sweet doggies they let us pet out on the porch only because we asked. The place is well decorated, landscaped, there must have been 100 zebra longwing butterflies lilting and flitting among the flowers, we heard a barred owl outside at night right on their grounds, and walked across the road and down to the lake at night to hear the chorus of chirping frogs and watch fireflies. Enchanting. Thank you, Kathy and Carole!
