Located atop Mtn. Overlooking the Huntsville valley. Great farm animal petting zoo and cabins depicting early life here in the valley. Interesting former home of Dr. Burritt now the Burritt museum. Features many of his original furnishings and other area artifacts. Fantastic views, banquet facilities, gazebo stunning location for any outdoor event.

Overlooking the city of Huntsville, AL, is a wonderful, peaceful venue for any event. The outdoor wedding I attended was handled by the Burritt coordinator and she did a wonderful job. The reception hall located close by was large and you did not feel crowded. Most any type of decorating was allowed including lighting and candles, etc. There were ample... More

Just attended an outside wedding with the reception in the very new hall. It was the perfect setting for a wedding. Traveled with an elderly person and they had a wheelchair we could use. It was easy to motivate around the grounds.

Taking my grandkids to the top of a mountain seemed too simple, but an hour or two out-of-doors is a good thing. When we arrived at Burritt on the Mountain, the sun was shining, the kids were anxious to romp, and I wasn't sure we'd last an hour. But what a treasure! The settlement was so well laid out that...

Interesting collection of log cabins dating back to the early 1800's. Worth visiting if you are curious as to how folks lived in rural areas during the 19th century. Nice views from the property if the weather is clear. The Doctor's house from the 1930's has few furnishings, and is too small to call it a mansion. That the Doc... More

We enjoyed the visit and the view very much. Some of the furniture was designed in a way that was different from any other items of furniture that I have ever seen. The view off the mtn. was also beautiful. The lady in the house told us some history that was interesting and we enjoyed that as well.

Old real cabins, church moved there from different parts of Alabama. Old house, car which belonged to a local doctor. Interesting to see how Americans lived 100+ years ago. Great view from the top of the mountain. Quiet, relaxing place. There are nice concerts there in summers.

Hiding way up on the mountain is a great place to go with a family for an afternoon. Lots of locals don't even know its there, but there's lots to see at Burritts. Educational exhibits, great gift shop, beautiful scenery and views of Huntsville.

Burritt isn't only for the children, but for the adults as well. This beautiful mansion, fully furnished and displaying history is a must to see. There is a gift shop and many experiences for the children.
