Beautiful views!

The mansion is gorgeous and full of history, and the grounds boast breathtaking views. It is buggy, though. And HOT n the summertime.

If you're looking for something a little different, visit this estate. It's fairly small, doesn't have a lot to see (in comparison to Ringling's Ca d Zan) but is a good example of it's era. Their decorated Christmas tree event before Christmas is fun, and you can purchase some of the ornaments towards the end of the run.

Best wedding venue I've attended in Florida. The mansion and the gardens are so elegant and not ostentatious. The wedding ceremony itself was held just before sunset on the back loggia facing Sarasota bay. Breathtakingly beautiful ceremony. Cocktails served later in gazebo waterside. Dinner served in main dining room was delicious. Desserts & wedding cake were served as a buffet... More

The Powel Crosley estate is one of those early 20th century homes right on the Gulf of Mexico. The man whose home this was created the very successful Crosley radio empire. As far as we could determine the home is only open during the Christmas holiday time when it is fully decorated and for the rest of the year when... More

Our son got married here! It was the perfect place for a sunset wedding right on Sarasota Bay. It showed the elegance of another era and it was fun to experience what it must have been like.

I joined my friends from The Sarasota Welcome Club for high tea at The Powell Crosley Estate last week. We dressed up, complete with hats and heels. We really felt like we were stepping into the past. The tiles remind me of California but the setting is pure southern Florida with sweeping views of beautiful Sarasota Bay! What a great... More

Probably one of the most beautiful wedding venues I've ever attended. Plenty of parking. History of the building is interesting and the property is kept in excellent shape!

Intimate interactive theatre. Great story telling - funny, witty, slightly scary with unexpected twists and turns. And, so very professional. All actors were equally adept. I will return for another experience.

For two weeks in late January and early February, a troupe of talented actors provide an evening of fun, frolic and tales of murder and mayhem. A great time - lots of laughs!
