It is off the beaten path but it is worth the trip. I live nearby and I have been to concerts there which were lovely. I recently went to a memorial service for a dear friend which was held there and it was a moving experience, the grounds are lovely and the lawn going down to the bay is inspiring. Seagulls and frigate birds fly overhead and you have a sense of the naturific side of Florida.The mansion is lovely and you go back in timewhile walklng through the house and the gardens. Once a month there are moonlight kayak trips.. a must do for the adventurous!
