    You can see the house from a distance but you need to go through a gift shop to get admission to the grounds, house and restaurant. The cost is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors over 65. The house tou...  more »

    Beautiful grounds and home. Enjoy lunch with a great view of the lake at the cafe. If you watch the film, enjoy a meal, and tour the home and grounds, it should take you approximately 3 leisurely hour...  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!
