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!

“Fantastic. The house was charming, warm and perfect. The hostess, Beverly isn’t a 5 – she’s a 10!!!! Grounds are lovely and the house is close to town. Restaurants were all within 5 minutes. The breakfasts that Beverly prepares are outstanding. Before you come she asked what we liked and made sure that she had that for us. The only complaint that we had is—— we had to leave! I would have liked to stay for a week.” –November 2023, 5-Bubble TripAdvisor Review

“What a perfect stay! This was our second time lodging at Thurston House. The breakfasts prepared by Innkeeper Beverly are incredibly impressive. We stayed in the Cubbedge Room during our first visit and this time we chose the O’Heir. You can’t go wrong with either choice. The rooms are spacious, private and have all you need. We were even surprised this historic home has really nice water pressure. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing place to rest (the porches and hammock!) or a special place to begin and end your day on a business trip or simply sightseeing Winter Park, Thurston House is conveniently located while also feeling tucked away from it all. Thank you, Beverly, for your gift of hospitality!”  –Nicole, October 2023, 5-Bubble TripAdvisor Review
