“A Garden Painter/Photographer's Dream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This garden estate is an artists dream for everyone, but especially those who love painting and photography. The vistas are unique, romantic and colorful. It feels like an endless walk until you realize you've basically walked in a big circle. There is so much to look at, so much to paint or shoot...and if you just feel like a lazy afternoon stroll this is the place to go. They have seating throughout the gardens and pathways. Come alone, with a friend or with your family...it will not disappoint!

Chanticleer is a beautiful spot on Philadelphia's Main Line. I highly recommend a visit here if you are from out of town or are a local just looking for something to do for the an afternoon.

“Small, but near-perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We're long-time lovers of gardens, having visited them throughout Europe and the US. Chanticleer is one of the very best, offering a winding, hilly tour through perhaps eight or ten quite different environments, all of them splendidly maintained. Longwood Gardens is the standard for grand establishments and this is the standard for small ones.

Lovely grounds to walk around. Always something to see. You'll be surprised when you walk in. And this was a private home!

“Family Outing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Chanticleer is really a local treasure. We visit often for the peace and serenity of these beautifully maintained grounds. The many seating areas through out offer places to settle in with a glass of wine or picnic lunch that we bring along. The price of admittance is reasonable, you really should make a point of stopping by!
