Owner description: This 65-acre estate is most well known for its lush and beautiful gardens featuring azaleas, camellias, and other flowering plants, but the house, built in 1935, is also stunning. It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

“Christmas Lights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I visited the gardens on a photography trip through Calagaz. We had the entire gardens to ourselves and it was excellent. The Christmas lights were up and the landscape was beautiful. It was an excellent trip and I can't wait to visit when the gardens are open to the public in the Spring!

“Have your camera ready........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Just toured the garden areas which were beautiful. Very nicely laid out & places to stop & rest.
The butterflies were great but wouldn't hold still for a picture! Fun to watch, though. Unexpected treasure in the middle of nowhere!

“Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

One of the premier gardens in the United States. Open all year dawn to dusk. Christmas lights display better than the famous Callaway Gardens in Georgia.

“Gorgeous gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Make sure you give yourself time to explore. We skipped the house and just toured the gardens. They were so beautiful! It felt like many of the gardens I'd seen in Europe, not like anything in the states. I was not expecting to find anything like that in Mobile, AL.

“Beautiful gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is a must see for your trip to Mobile. The gardens were beautiful, even in the hot, humid month of August. There is lots of walking, with inclines and steps in some areas, so dress accordingly. The home was beautifully decorated for the era, the tour guides very knowledgable and made the visit very interesting. Expect to spend a couple of hours there.
