Burritt on the Mountain is situated on Monte Sano mountain, and the views of Huntsville (down in the valley) are terrific. Dr. Burritt's mansion now serves as a museum, and you can tour 19th century homes that have been relocated and rebuilt on the grounds. It's very child friendly, and it's a great place to spend an hour or two... More

I unfortunately didn't have time to tour the entire area, but I'll at least review on what I was able to. The grounds were very well taken care of and the drive through the trees to get there was beautiful. The gift shop was very cute and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I can't wait to come back... More

Burritt on the Mountain offers a spectacular view of Huntsville. There's a home you can tour, trails you can hike, and an historic village you can walk through which made me appreciate the many modern conveniences I take for granted. There is an admission charge which is discounted if you went to the Visitors Center and got the coupons. Only... More

The Burritt mansion is an interesting walk-thru but the real treat is out back. There are two villages: one of 1850 Alabama and the other of 1900 Alabama. We like to see the crafts and talk to the crafts people. Burritt has frequent programs so there is lots of enjoyment for kids and adults.

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
