Exterior view of Thurston House

Thurston House, a Central Florida Bed and Breakfast, is an unexpected treat. It is peacefully located among 8 acres overlooking Lake Eulalia near Winter Park, Florida. This Queen Anne Victorian farmhouse was built in 1885 and completely restored in 1991. As a boutique inn, Thurston House offers modern room amenities and the service of a fine small hotel within a setting of a charming historic home.

Our Central Florida bed and breakfast is located within minutes from Winter Park and the esteemed Rollins College. Also, downtown Orlando is just 10 minutes away! Conveniently, Disney attractions and area State Parks are less than a 30-minute drive. If you are heading to the beach, East Coast beaches like Daytona and Coco are just about an hour away. Thurston House B&B is close to restaurants, shopping, museums, and festivals. Our Central Florida Bed and Breakfast is the most convenient location to enjoy all that Central Florida has to offer!

Thurston House Bed and Breakfast offers three guest rooms each with private baths and comfortable decor.  A full hot breakfast each morning will leave you energized and ready to explore the Orlando area. At the end of a busy day, the wraparound porch is an inviting place to rest. In the evenings, our guests like to settle into a rocking chair overlooking the tranquil lake. As you unwind, you can enjoy birds and squirrels chasing each other around the gardens. For the more energetic, there are meandering walking paths around Lake Lily Park. In addition, the gardener will  enjoy the variety of antique camellia bushes, mature oak trees, tall palm trees and wild flowers. Finally, we are proud to say our Central Florida B&B is an official Certified Wildlife Habitat! Come experience this peaceful escape!

“…Five stars for the room, the service and the location! And, if I had one more I’d use six stars to describe the breakfasts!
We really had a delightful stay with our host Beverly at the Thurston House. We had a lovely room (the O’Heir Suite). Nicely decorated with a comfortable bed and ensuite. Very quiet. Flooded with sunlight in the mornings….The service was perfect. Beverly has thought of everything. She was never more than a text away when we had a question. And, she’s a great cook! The breakfasts were bountiful and delicious! …We will definitely be visiting the Thurston House again!!” –Peter and Ruth, March 2023
