Think about what it must have been like for Rockefeller to live here at the beginning of the century. Scenically located on the river but the view is now the bridge and the condos across the street. Frequent special evens and the occasional cooking class make this an Ormond treat. Beautiful at Christmas time.

The house is nice and a work in progress it seems. The staff doesn't really interact with you much. Normally houses like this charge admission but this house is free. Some nice pictures are hanging on the walls but it would be nice if more information on the family would be nice. There is a tour available but we didn't... More

We enjoyed walking through the Casements. As the Rockerfellers have been in the history of America to some extent, it was fun walking through and trying to see yourself living this setting.

Any house owned or lived in by the financier John D. Rockefeller would be interesting, right? Well sad to say The Casements were a disappointment. Much of the rooms are closed off or look nothing like they did when Rockefeller was alive.

It is a very pretty place to visit inside and out. If you like history, you will like it. It tells the story of how and when the Casements were built and why. It is the history of the Rockefellers and how they got so famous. We have been there twice, once on our own and the second time with... More

It was kind of a cool place to see but most of the rooms had been changed or were blocked off. Our kids got bored so we were only there for about 30 minutes. The outside area is beautiful!

Such a unique place. When J D Rockefeller aspired to live to 100, he sent a team of scouts ou to find the best climate in the states. Thus, he had this built. Check it out, very interesting. Worth the stop. Very unique.

It's a small house to visit but the tour fide was so informative. Without her the tote would have taken 15 minutes, but she gave a detailed history or the house and Rockefeller so you could really appreciate everything inside. If you like learning about history by listening-this is your place. If you don't like that-walk around on your own.

The Casements is the former winter home of John D. Rockefeller. A visit here gives you an opportunity to see a beautiful old home and learn a little of the history of Florida and the Rockefeller family.

Home of John D Rockefeller. Died in that house. A fun & educational tour of the great man's winter home for many years. You will learn much about his family & friends. Don't miss it!
