  • All natural, the vast majority of things are original, and beautiful. I accompanied my mother here the Sunday following mother's day. A man toured us with much information that was tastefully delivered. He was able and willing to answer questions, and there was not one he didn't know that I asked him. Very calm and lovely, with authenticity that isn't found everywhere!
  • Florida at it best in 1930th-1950th.very informative and entertaining enjoyed very much.
  • Cute place to spend a few hours. Home and trails are well kept. Nice little hidden treasure of Florida.
  • Great little treasure of Florida history. You can only view the home if you go during a group tour session, so make sire you check schedule before arriving. We had to wait an hour when we came because we missed last tour (our fault for not checking times before coming). We loved it here
  • We have watched the movie and been here several times this woman's story is amazing and the place is big an they let you wonder around her property and it's a free historical place to go beautiful
