You must follow in the internet reservation process to get oneof the limited spots for the tour of the estate, but it is worth it.

Great tour of a bygone era of the Annenbergs. Terrific guide with wonderful details of the construction and use of the house and grounds. Hard to get a ticket, but worth the wait. A true gem in the desert to see!

Sunnylands is a great place to visit for their visitor center and tour. It has a lot of the areas history right on its property. The art, decor, and golf course are amazing. The style and architecture are great reminders of the past and present.

Sunnylands is wonderful - interesting, visually charming and a great experience. You can visit the landscaping and visitor center anytime. However, you must have tickets to visit the residence and its interiors. Try to get tickets - it is worth it and lovely!

Tucked in the middle of Rancho Mirage, Sunnylands gives a glimpse of the 1960's-1980s through the Annenberg home and estate. The gardens are lovely and available to browse for free- the house tour requires reservations and a approx. $50 ticket. But well worth it to...More

Sunnylands is true historical landmark, so many political events were set in motion or agreed upon after the relaxed conversations this place allowed. The Annenberg estate is a jewel of mid-century architecture, the gardens are a lovely respite in the dessert (definitely not sustainable in...More

We've been waiting to visit Sunnylands (we live nearby), and finally did. First, there is a reception center, which is a later add-on, not part of the actual house. It is excellent, with a very nice coffee/snack shop, small gift shop and small art exhibit....More
