Business Opportunity! Have you ever wanted to run a B&B, live on the property and not have to make a large investment? This is your chance to leave your imprint on this fabulous lake front property as the current innkeepers have! It is a turnkey property, ready for your energy and new ideas! Thurston House, a Central Florida Bed and Breakfast, is located among 8 wooded acres overlooking picturesque Lake Eulalia near Winter Park, Florida. Built in 1885 and completely restored in 1991, the boutique inn combines all the charm of a period Queen Anne Victorian Farmhouse with modern room amenities and the service of a fine, small hotel. The entire 8 acres is owned by the City of Maitland with Thurston House and 1.152 acres leased to the current innkeepers. The innkeepers live on the property (required by lease), manage and maintain the interior of the property, general landscaping and pay insurance associated with the business and contents. The City of Maitland maintains the exterior of the house, parking lot, major landscaping, AC and pays insurance (structure & general liability) for the house.
The three private guest rooms each enjoy private baths and comfortable decor. A 4th guest room could be added by converting the innkeeper living area/2nd bathroom back to its original design. Guests are served breakfast each morning leaving them ready to explore the Central Florida area. The wraparound porch overlooking the lake is an inviting respite after a busy day. Guests can relax with wine and cheese on the rocking chairs while watching the sunset and wildlife in the yard. For the more adventurous there are meandering walking paths and several garden areas to enjoy. The casual landscape includes many antique camellia bushes, mature oak trees, large bamboo stalks, tall palm trees and a variety of other bushes & flowers. Thurston House is an official Certified Wildlife Habitat.
Thurston House is located only 5 minutes from Winter Park, Rollin’s College, 10 minutes from downtown Orlando and Lake Eola, 25 minutes from Disney attractions, 30 minutes from area state parks, and an hour from East Coast beaches. Thurston House B&B is close to restaurants, shopping, museums and more, offering the best location to enjoy all of Central Florida.
