Charles was a visionary who chose to protect a beautiful piece of Florida. Much different from his brothers estate, Viscaya. This must have been a great place to sit back and relax. The secret wine cellar is a fascinating bit of history. Though not fully...More

Nice wedding venue - view is very nice, the building is an old historic building with adequate space for a reception.

It’s a lovely place to picnic and walk around but is nothing compared to Viscaya which is the over the top estate of the other brother. Bring a picnic and look around- some nice spots for photo ops.
