18-1/2 years ago in Maitland, FL…

Thurston House before renovations 1990

Amazingly, Thurston House Bed & Breakfast opened it’s doors 18-1/2 years ago! Our Central Florida inn has since enjoyed having guests from 24 countries, every state and even 4 territories! We’ve seen regular guests through their personal good times and bad, as well as a few of our own.  Every year brings a bit more fine tuning, to everything from the room decor and amenitites to the garden areas. This glorious 125 year old Queen Anne beauty would still make Cyrus Thurston proud, as it does us. Come see…book now!

Tis the Season – Central Florida Style!

1st camellia of the season!

The season is upon us in Maitland, Fl, at our Central Florida bed & breakfast. The reason I know this, is that the first of our camellia bushes has blossumed! Always first, this beautiful deep pink camellia is right by the parking area, greeting guests with its beauty. Soon the yard will be awash with all different types and colors, from large petal red ones, to small delicate white ones…they amaze me with their beauty every year.


Our orange and tangerine trees are starting to ripen too, and will be nice & sweet, ready to make juice by early January. Guests are always encouraged to take tangerines home with them as there is always an over abundance! Book your Thurston House room now and enjoy a bit of holiday cheer.
