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

My daughter is getting married here. It is one of the most beautiful estates I have ever seen. Perfect for weddings.

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!

Outstanding entertainment bargain: A light hearted, set of plays (moving from room to room and then to patio). Outstanding performances by professional actors playing the Crosleys, Clara Bow, etc. telling stories which often had us laughing out loud. Audiences have opportunities to answer questions and comment. as well as tour the mansion. If you have a good sense of humor-... More

We attended the show(s) last night, and it was as good an evening of theatre that we have ever been to. It was an evening like none we have been to before. It started with the cast singing Christmas Carols in Victorian dress, in the yard. We then went into the Lounge for a rendition of Dicken's Christmas Carol, performed... More

I went to a wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate. It was so beautiful! It was a smaller wedding since it was held on the back patio, but inside was gorgeous and the outside gave such a gorgeous view!

You probably never heard of Powel Crosley and knew even less about his Newport-like mansion on the east side of Sarasota Bay across from the Bradenton/Sarasota Airport, a short distance north of the Ringling Estate. But Crosley is worth knowing about and his estate is worth visiting. Built in 1929, a few years after Ringling's more famous Ca' d'Zan, Crosley's... More
