This area of Maitland and Winter Park is just beautiful, with many great restaurants, museums and fabulous shopping. But why else would people need to stay here? An upscale continuing care retirement community – The Mayflower – is just a short drive away from Thurston House. This community has everything from villas to skilled nursing care. A guest this weekend is coming in from the North East to visit parents. Having been in that situation myself, I know it is great to have quality visiting time, but equally as great to have a wonderful, relaxing place to stay!
