  • Filoli stands for "Fight," "Love," and "Life". The stately mansion is huge. One can imagine being an invited guest back in the early 1900s. And the gardens are vast and glorious. A Woodsie "Must see"! 
  • We visited Filoli today, mostly to see the gardens, but also enjoyed the the self-guided tour of the house. Gardens were spectacular, with much in full bloom. Blue Skies and sunshine certainly helped....  more »
  • The grandeur of one of America's castles is surpassed by the magnificence of the adjoining gardens and grounds. Truly a California treasure! Filoli definitely warrants return visits as the seasons cha...  more »

  • This is the "best kept secret" in the area. I had never heard of Filoli until a friend mentioned that they had been there. I made a point of visiting Filoli during a trip to the bay area. It was totally worth it! Amazing gardens that change with the seasons so you should visit often. Make sure to tell your friends about Filoli as it seems that no one knows about it. We did the garden and mansion tour. The only small complaint was that I couldn't pay for the tickets easily online before the trip. A quick call to the volunteer staff took care of booking the tickets beforehand.
  • Very pretty and well maintained old mansion. Admission fee is kind of steep, but worthwhile from time to time to see the gardens and flowers in different seasons. Docent tours are very interesting, but fill up quickly.
  • Amazing gardens! Endless places of great beauty. And the house is such an interesting peek into the history of the wealthy in those times. Very worthwhile day has been spent here.
  • Beautiful historical estate in the heart of Woodside. The gardens are incredible and gorgeously landscaped. The house is lovely with many stories to be told.
  • This is a beautiful manor and garden! It felt similar to Hearst Castle, but smaller of course. The gardens are beautiful and well kept. Visiting is a great way to take time to "smell the roses." It is also very picturesque, so it has many great photo opportunities. It is also a great place to practice photography. There are also lots of Pokestops if you play Pokemon. I enjoyed looking at all the plants and flowers. Each one states its species. Some plants weren't in season, and we went during summer at 11am to 1:30pm, so the sun was direct, light was bright, and hot. There isn't a lot of shade, so if you go in summer, please bring water and wear sunscreen. I also enjoyed touring the manor. It only allows for the first floor, but it is incredibly spacious. Many furnishings are originals and are so intricate. Great for those who enjoy art history and appreciate interior design and antiques. It is $20 for adults and $10 for students.
