My partner and I were in & out for a whirlwind wedding trip, but I wish we had more time to enjoy the house and neighborhood! We would have chilled with the chickens, strolled around the gorgeous lake down the street, and enjoyed some breakfast in the lush backyard. Our brief stay was lovely, though. Arrived to a warm welcome, left to even warmer goodbyes from our friendly host. If you're weighing different homes in the area, I highly recommend this one. Your host family will go out of their way to make you feel welcome, but they'll also give you plenty of space to relax by yourself.

Dorinne's hospitality and home are wonderful! Everything was exactly as portrayed....and even better! So grateful for a wonderful place to stay that was a peaceful, beautiful location 1/2 block from a lake, and comfortable home. My two day stay while attending a local art workshop was fabulous...and should there be another reason to take to Maitland, I hope that I have the opportunity to again stay at this lovely home.

It was a wonderful experience. Dorine made me feel like home. Very clean, sweet and modern house. She also made breakfast for me. Dorine is a very interesting, polite, opened and wise woman. It was always exciting talking to her. I'm grateful that she has hosted me. Looking forward next time visiting her place.

We stayed at Dorine's place for a wedding in Orlando. My fiancé and I stayed there for three nights and felt very comfortable with the home. Fantastic amenities inside the home as well as a great location next to a lake. Secluded inside a quaint neighborhood however very accessible to Orlando and surrounding areas for food and entertainment. Great host and if we come back to Orlando we will be staying with Dorine!
