Here's What Our Visitors Have to Say
"The house is very pleasant and welcoming. The rooms are large, comfortable and well-appointed; the bathrooms, modern and efficient. The owners, Troy and Gretchen Avera, are a fascinating couple. He is a commercial airline pilot. She is an enchanting lady who lived many years in Miami and studied ballet at the Ballet Concerto Academy. The breakfasts are extraordinary. Fresh fruit, chilled natural orange juice, finest specially imported premium coffee and, how to describe the magnificent fruit-laden french toast? A culinary delight. The best I have ever tasted. If any of my readers ever visit the area, I strongly recommend staying at the Avera-Clarke House."

gold medal recipient of the 2010 Florida Book Reward
and guest of the Avera-Clarke House in March of 2010
"We stayed at the Avera-Clarke Bed and Breakfast and were treated very well. We were on a mid-July bicycle vacation and enjoyed three days of long distance rides and then returned to relax and enjoyed cold drinks and fresh fruit served by the inn keeper. We are telling all our friends in Orlando what a great bike trip we had there."
