After a long search for the right property, Arthur and John found the right home for Adora Inn in the charming, historic central Florida town of Mount Dora. Monroe Patterson, and early developer, built the house as a duplex in 1916. The new owners preserved the historic elements of the building but gave it a modern spin. Arthur placed his original art in the guest rooms. John made sure all the furnishing were comfortable. Together, they created a stylish and comfortable retreat.
Both Innkeepers love good food and enjoy meeting and interacting with people from diverse backgrounds. Breakfast at Adora Inn is when everyone has the chance to connect while sharing stories and experiences. The Innkeepers also act as a Concierge service, helping guests to plan their tours, choose restaurants and other activities in and around Mount Dora. In-house dining options and creative packages and services like in-room massage are offered to enhance the guest experience at Adora Inn.

John has been in the hospitality industry for 24 years. He graduated from the Culinary Institute of America where he pursued a career as chef. After a few years he realized that business operations was more to his liking than running a kitchen. John refocused his management skills to running restaurants, upscale resort hotel spas and private health clubs. Then in 2005 John and Arthur joined forces to open Adora Inn.
Arthur’s career has been in Fine Arts and Design. While attending Parsons School of Design and the Brooklyn Museum Art School, he developed his culinary skills working as a chef at Berry’s Restaurant and Bistro in SoHo, New York. With his paintings displayed at the Inn and his design talent used to create the Adora Inn identity and marketing materials, Arthur brings a sophisticated, multi-faceted esthetic to Adora Inn.
