About Lisa Caravette

Both nurses, we needed a getaway where we could relax, meet new friends and enjoy nature and the Lakefront. We found all of that in Mt. Dora.

Lisa Caravette purchased this house in 2012

Why Lisa Caravette chose Central Florida

This house called our name. The vintage charm was exactly what we were looking for. It is what you think of in a home in Mt. Dora. It needed some tender loving care and we gave it that with a lot of hard work but it was worth the effort.

What makes this house unique

The location is absolutely amazing. One short block to downtown, yet on a safe, quiet street. Easy stroll to the lake, fishing dock, lighthouse, kids' park and nature path & boardwalk. Pick up some groceries on the way in, park your car and you never have to drive again!

Why would anyone stay in a hotel when you can come home every night to such a beautiful place

Lovely place to stay in Mount Dora

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend renting this beautiful home if you plan to stay in the Mount Dora area. It really felt like my home away from home. It was clean and well supplied with needed kitchen items, and washing/drying capabilities. I had never been to Mount Dora and it was such a nice quiet town with so many shops and restaurants to explore. We walked to the downtown/waterfront area just 1 block away. We enjoyed the 4th of July fireworks and parade! We also went antiquing and found a few really neat local places where we spent a whole day looking around. I travel a lot for work and usually stick to staying in a specific hotel chain to keep my gold/diamond status active, but I fell in love with this option of renting a house. Overall it was a cheaper option for us as we could cook our own food and wash our clothes instead of having to go out to eat for every meal and find a laundromat. And I didn't have pay for 2 rooms for my family - instead this home had enough bedrooms to fit all of us!

Nice weekend at "The Tree House" in Mount Dora

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lisa and Peter for your help. Very accommodating and helpful with local information. Very nice, clean older home with everything you'd need. Cool little downtown with fantastic restaurants. No need for a car as everything is within walking distance which is great. We'll be visiting again next summer.

Pleasant home only a short walk from quaint downtown Mt. Dora

  • 5 of 5

The home is stocked with all the essentials for your stay. Charmingly decorated made our time inside the home as memorable as our time outside. Great dining nearby (walking distance) as well as plenty of shopping. Plenty of space to accommodate 4 to 6 adults.

Adorable house with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the treehouse. It was so cute and had everything we needed. Lisa and Peter were so helpful and they provided us with a great list of restaurants and places within walking distance. We wound up not using the car at all while we were in Mt Dora as we could walk to everything. During our stay we felt right at home. We're already thinking about our next trip & a repeat stay at the Treehouse. Thank you Lisa and Peter!

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at The Tree House! It was within a short walking distance to the lake and downtown, which had so many eateries, we had trouble deciding which ones to enjoy during our 4-night stay. The house had plenty of room and all the comforts of home. The backyard was relaxing and a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine. It is about an hour drive to Silver Springs State Park, which was an added bonus to our trip. The owners made sure we were settled and left us water and wine in the fridge. I hope to return again soon!
