Alling House, Orange City, Florida

sunny 65 °F

Date of Stay: Jan.13 – Jan. 19
We arrived in Orange City mid afternoon,, warm and sunny. We had taken an early morning train from Savannah to Orlando, then a bus to the Orlando Airport. From there a shuttle to the rent-a-car depot, then a drive to Alling House, located in Orange City, FL. This was our second stay here, having thoroughly enjoyed our stay a year earlier. Alling House is owned and hosted by Nan and Gerald. They helped make our stay an excellent one. The B&B is located in a very quiet residential neighborhood, as is most of Orange City: we were there to visit parents living at John Knox, a retirement complex.
The B&B is a partially remodeled and refurbished 100+ year old house with outlaying cottages. Our room in the main house, the Gold Room had enough outlets to handle our electrical items, and the new bath had space to spare for drying our clothes. The room was adequate size for reading, computer use (excellent wifi reception) and relaxing. The queen bed was comfortable with plenty of quilts and soft pillows.
As mentioned, the owners were great. Nan prepares an extensive breakfast daily, always varied. Both were full of suggestions concerning daily activities and nearby restaurants. We took advantage of the nearby walking areas and the Blue Springs manatee preserve.
Without a doubt, we will return to Alling house, a very peaceful and relaxing respite from our busy life.
