If you love beautiful estates, a lovely view of the bay, a unique ecosystem with Manatee, crocodiles, & various species of bird, then you're going to love it here. There are awesome trails, and did I mention the artist residency program which runs year round. I visit here when ever I can, but today was unique because there was a... More

Little did we know its actually paradise located behind these coral walls. The estate is amazing- you can see manatees in the basin, and wildlife throughout. Walk on the boardwalk through the...

My daughter loves going to the Deering Estate. She took place in the NESST program at her school(Perrine Elementary) and learned so much historical and environmental information. I too enjoy the historical aspect of of the Estate and what it means to Cutler Ridge. Highly recommend the visit!

I come to the Deering Estate often. The grounds are well kept and the staff and guides are friendly and knowledgeable. There are trails and a boardwalk that leads out to the bay. I often come here to bike too. I park at the visitor's center (no fee here) and ride my bike down the path to the people's bridge,... More

This place is a "find". You can listen to music on Sat nights, you can plan a wedding there or just walk around the grounds.

It proved to be more beautiful and interesting than expected.The two houses in one were impressive. The grounds are beautiful.The view is great. I suggest to take the guided tour of the house. the guide made the scene come alive. The explanations were enlightening. The big was intended as an exhibition gallery but looked like one you could live in.... More

For as long as I have lived in Florida I had not visited the Deering Estate. The grounds of the Deering Estate are well kept and the house itself has been maintained. The... More
