  • Spent an amazing morning at this gardens. Cost $10/adult and well worth the money. Enjoyed seeing and hearing the peacocks. They have 32 of them! The gardens are VERY well maintain and easy to walk. T...  more »
  • Beautiful gardens, peacocks, and a very interesting house tour, according to my wife I didn't do the tour even though it's included. The house owned by a silent film star. Sits by a lake with a really...  more »

  • The entire island is actually a salt dome with a fascinating story. The optional mansion tour/cottage accomodations are equally historic and amidst beautiful landscaping and lush subtropical gardens with native and imported flora. A cafe and gift shop are also available. Fauna on the grounds include doves, free-roaming peacocks as well as raccoons and kitties! There are some automatic feeders that provide feed for all, but the thin, hungry kitties certainly seem to get the least of it with the raccoons on guard! All in all a lovely, pleasant weekend getaway. But while the owner seems to have a kind heart for the animals, may I suggest to also have a conscience by looking into spaying/neutering to control the cat population.
  • The gardens here are beautiful. The food is pretty good. The staff is super friendly!
  • Ample, well lie parking. Table service both inside and outside, weather printing. Food is excellent, ample amounts, presented very nicely. Small menu, but adequit. (Outside service is under large "live oak trees" in a flower garden setting, over looking a famous lake, with peacock running wild all around.)
  • Stayed here on January 21, 2017 with the love of my life. This place is enchanting and romantic. We stayed in the servant quarters. I highly recommend staying here!
  • We were there in mid October and it was lovely. We spent a couple of hours walking around and completing the tour then had lunch. The BEST bread pudding I have ever had!
