Meetings & Events

Lakeside Inn is one of the country’s rare settings for private gatherings of 10 – 200, both indoors and out. Our peaceful lakeside location in the heart of the preserved old Florida village of Mount Dora draws groups who gather for special reasons . . . class and family reunions, business meetings and retreats, company and association board meetings, weddings and special events.

Our Central Florida location and close proximity to the Orlando International Airport (45 minutes) makes us easy to reach whether someone is driving here from within the State, or flying here from anywhere in the world. For those traveling by private aircraft, the Leesburg International Airport is just 15 minutes away.

When not meeting, attendees can participate in a wide variety of activities such as guided eco-tours, Segway tours and seaplane rides. There are a number of championship golf courses in the area, as well as a wide variety of quaint shops in our downtown area for those that like to stroll and explore. The largest antiques center in the state of Florida is just 5 minutes away and most of the Orlando theme parks can be reached within 35 minutes.

Intimate dining, live music, fishing, boating, swimming, kayaking and eco-touring and breathtaking sunsets, all help to make Lakeside Inn a full-service destination, well loved by meeting planners and attendees.  Whether an important business meeting or a very special social event, our on site event planners and creative banquet staff will work to ensure you enjoy a beautiful, well orchestrated event.


Lakeside Inn, Florida’s most historic hotel, offers a variety of indoor and outdoor venues for both, your business meetings, social functions, and weddings, featuring both picturesque views and historic settings. Beautiful gardens offer an elegant setting for your outdoor wedding and special events, while the indoor venues create a unique setting for receptions and meetings.
