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!



“My husband and I recently spent our anniversary here. Beverly was the perfect hostess! The room was very clean and comfortable, the food she prepared was over the top delicious, she is knowledgeable about Thurston House’s history, she shared about the walking trails, the wildlife, Winterpark and you could feel her joy of being the innkeeper. She is just very kind. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and it surely did not disappoint.”–Diane, May 2022

“My family and I had such a great time at the Thurston House. I went to Rollins college and it was the perfect off campus place for parents. Beverly was so hospitable and hosted such a beautiful graduation weekend for myself and my family. Her food was impeccable and was very accommodating to all of our dietary restrictions. She accommodated for both a gluten and dairy free meal in a delicious spread. The location is perfectly off the beaten track and right in the center of all the greatest places in Winter Park. Thanks again for such a great stay, we miss it already!”–Sophie, May 2022

“Met as strangers…left as friends. Our Anniversary weekend was perfect with the help of Beverly. Beautiful quaint bed and breakfast that everyone should stay once, or more. Stay was like we were with family. Rooms are tastefully decorated. Grounds are tranquil. Area has cultural places to visit, many restaurants to choose from and plenty of lakes to stroll Already thinking of when we can return.”–Lynette, January 2022
