Rollins College Celebrates 125 years!


The fabulous Rollins College in Winter Park is gearing up for the celebration of its 125th year! We have enjoyed many who have come to the area to look at Rollins College as an school option, and also have hosted many parents of Rollins College students. Congrats to this wonderful learning institution!

Come stay at North Orlando’s premier bed & breakfast – Thurston House – while visiting the Winter Park and Maitland area.

Come stay and take home a special gift, one of our beautiful Deneen Pottery mugs or a vase.
