The Estate is a historic landmark with buildings and landscape well maintained. Sitting under the Palm trees while enjoying snacks or succulent hot dog with the kids with the waterfront surrounded by gorgeous palm trees makes an enjoyable family affair.

Interesting home & historic property. Kind of a must-see, but I wish there were guides. Tickets almost as expensive ($12pp) as Vizcaya, but we met no employees, really no one at all to tell us anything. Some of the bathrooms have been updated in a way that makes you think it might be going up for sale soon?!?

You have visited Vizcaya just a little bit north ?? Well, this one was the other Deering's brother winter house. The Deerings was the family behind Internationa Harvester (Now Case HI). The agricultural equipment giant. This one is more centered on nature than Vizcaya. But you will learn a lot about the history of this american familly and about theses... More

You are able to explore the main house and the smaller building attached to it, and get a real feel of what it was like living in Florida at the turn of the century and the early 1900s. The lagoon area in the back, which has appeared in various tv shows including Miami Vice, is beautiful and gives some great... More

We finally made it down to the Deering Estate and the first impression we had was there's nothing here. As we tried to put Mom who's unable to climb stairs in the elevator to see what's on the second level we had a problem with the elevator, it wouldn't open. Employee walked by offer their service and explain to us... More

I attended a fantastic evening wedding here and had an absolutely great time. Staff had everything well organized. We went seamlessly from the ceremony to outdoor socializing on the lawn. Then we transitioned into dinner and dancing. The building is wonderful as well as the outdoor setting. I would recommend it for any wedding.
