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!

The staff there are super nice and friendly. The tour guide lady is very professional in accommodating us. The view towards the river is fantastic. For folks interested in history, it is a 1-2 hour tour worthwhile.

The tour during the day tells you a lot about John Rockefeller and the way he operated towards his friends and how the building has changed over the years along with how many things are still very original. I love the tour but I also had my wedding here. The staff is amazing, They are so on top of things... More

Up stairs is a boy scout museum. Not exactly what I expected to find in a Rockefeller home. It was nice to see his office at least with his original furniture. Our docent was extremely nice and quite informative. I was hoping for more but the rooms are being used for other things going on.
