We enjoyed touring Dr. Burritt's house. The docent was very knowledgeable. The other activities on the property had closed by the time we arrived. However, we believe them to be geared around children.

The best part of this place is the mansion and the tour guide that told us about the mansion. I wish I could remember his name. He was wonderful especially when dealing with my 13 year old son. We loved the information he gave us. The view is beautiful! The rest of the place was good. A church, a few... More

I really enjoy the walking trail and take my dog to enjoy this peaceful place. Usually I go when my son has home school classes in the park. You can get behind school groups during the school year so a visit after 2 PM is best.

My family visited Burritt on the Mountain two months ago. The place is a former estate located on about ten acres of land in Monte Sano overlooking Huntsville.

My husband and I wanted to visit a place that was reasonably priced. It costs $20 for both of us to visit. You tour old cabins built in 1850'S. There are different types of cabins and antique furniture. You can visit blacksmith shop and animals on the farm. There is a nice barn that can be rented but not toured.... More

The drive is easy and you go through the gift shop to get your tickets. When you enter the area there are several old style buildings. There are also people in period dress to tell you about the building. My problem was it was not totally like the period. there were modern day dishes on some of the tables, as... More

My wife saw a brochure for Burritt on the mountain. Was very interesting to learn about the history of this mansion and property. The day we visited there was a wedding that occurred. What a beautiful place to get married. This was a great way to spend the afternoon.

The view of Huntsville was incredible! And Dr. Burrit's house was quite interesting - with the Art Noveau style in the main areas, and interesting ironwork items in other rooms. and my dad loved the '49 Desoto in the garage. The setting is what makes the place.
