A Nice Vist to the Butterflies and a touch of France.

Besides a beautiful collection of butterflies, the Estates boast a wonderful crepe dinning. Our favorite is the seafood crepe with a small bit of green salad.

This is my second year visiting the Butterfly Estates. My niece was excited to go and we were in for a real treat. The butterflies were super active and I got tons of pictures. We even saw one laying eggs! It was amazing! My niece found a deceased butterfly, which we gave to one of the workers and was told... More

My 3 year old son and I both loved it! A great way to waste some time. It was affordable, educational and the butterflies were beautiful. We plan on going back!

The docents are knowledgeable and friendly. Will tell you as much as you want or leave you to your own musings. The price of admission is high but worth it, a beautiful place to contemplate and meditate.

I was surprised to see so many poor reviews! Yes, it's small, but beautiful inside and small means a better chance to see and photograph the butterflies! I didn't find the price that bad, considering it's being used to save the butterflies! However, it is very hot inside, you will sweat! I enjoyed stalking the butterflies waiting for that perfect...

Although fairly small, this is a well planned butterfly and flower conservatory. There are several benches placed inside the garden,as well as small pools and a waterfall. Goldfish, Koi, and turtles are a bonus. We saw at least 15 different butterflies including a Zebra Swallowtail when we were there in early May. A good place to take younger children.

Went with our daughter, her husband and our grandson . The admission price is a little high but we hoped it would be worth it. The garden inside with the brook running throughout was beautiful and lots of fish but as far as butterflies go it was very disappointing. I don't think we saw more than 20 butterflies in the...

The staff is very well informed and the butterfly area is just beautiful and the butterflies fun to see. Just a nice, calm place to visit.

Took some friends who were visiting from up North and their two girls, both under 10 years of age, were mesmerized. As were we adults. Such a beautiful place.

The butterfly Estates is a quite, peaceful way to get away from the noise and hassle of life and watch those beautiful flying flowers. It is smaller than I would prefer, and it is hot in there (butterflies need to stay warm, so it can get rather warm sometimes.) There's a lovely little creek going thru the center of the... More
