We are happy to announce the Jane Austen Fest discount at the Lakeside Inn. Please mention that you are reserving for the Jane Austen Fest when you make your reservations. Since some of our events and workshops are taking place at the Inn, it is a good idea to stay there too.

Room availability is limited. Make your reservations early.


The Lakeside Inn

The Historic Lakeside Inn opened in 1883 and is the oldest continuously operated Hotel in Florida. Overlooking the picturesque Lake Dora, it is the last of the Grand Victorian Era Hotels still remaining in Central Florida. The Inn has hosted many dignitaries and celebrities through its 130 year history, such as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. President Calvin Coolidge and First Lady Grace Coolidge stayed for a month in the winter of 1930 after his presidency was over. It was also the set for the 1981 John Schlesinger movie, Honky Tonk Freeway. The Veranda is one of the best places to catch the sun setting over Lake Dora. This wonderful Inn will be our hub for the Fest.
CALL THE LAKESIDE INN: 800-556-5016. Mention the Jane Austen Fest to get a fest discount.

There are also other B&Bs and Motels in the area. We don't have a discount, but you are welcome to stay there as well.
