Discover Tavares, Florida!

The Key West Resort on Lake Dora is in the Tavares – Mount Dora hotel area that offers the latest in style and amenities to make your Mount Dora area vacation or business trip a success. Conveniently located on Lake Dora in the Entertainment District, just two blocks from the Lake County Courthouse, you will find the hotel is close to everything you need. Each of our 64 spacious rooms and suites feature hardwood or tile floors, wet bars with microwave, refrigerator, and sink, and the suites have fully equipped kitchens. Most rooms and suites have a private balcony overlooking the Seaplane Basin and recreational waterfront.

Located at one of Florida’s only inland seaplane basins, where pilots like to stop in, enjoy the entertainment, and often spend the night before the next day’s adventures. Jet skis are available for rental, as well as boat rentals. There is a steam engine, The Royal Palm Railway Experience, that runs from Tavares to the historic village of Mt. Dora and beyond with themed trips. Live entertainment is common on the weekends on the waterfront at Puddle Jumpers (restaurant and bar) and Kalua Hale Beach Bar (bar with limited menu). The hotel itself has The Tiki West Raw Bar and Grille, Brand Charles Studio Hemingway’s Wine and Cigar Bar.

Classic Boat Racing, Antique Car Shows, Sailing Regattas, and Jet Ski Tournaments are common events on Lake Dora in Tavares, as well as the famous Arts and Antiques Festivals in Mt. Dora. The Downtown Tavares area is an Entertainment District, where patrons are allowed to stroll (with the adult beverages of their choice) to visit the many shops, museums, and restaurants and bars.
