It was too difficult to get a reservation. We had to call two people! Both of the calls were answered by an automated voice messaging system. They told us to email another person! We decided not to go. Too much work to see a house....More
Great locale for cocktail party/ dinner event or historical tour. The house alone is worth the visit. But so is the back yard and river.
Our night was a benefit even and 250 participants didn’t overwhelm the place.
Built in 1901, The Burroughs House is one of the very few remaining houses of that era left standing on the Caloosahatchee River.
Our tour guide Pat did a great job telling us about the history and the family.
A pretty home , with lots of porch. A little hard to get to. Fort Myers has one way streets down town. This home is not mention in the AAA maps or book. The Burroughs were friends with the Firestones, Edisons and Fords.
I was with a group of 11 who took the Christmas tour. Living in Ft Myers for 4 years and it was my first time there. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting.
I would recommend it for locals and visitors.
