Beautiful
Nov 2020
We were at a wedding here last Monday and what a beautiful wedding venue! They were very accommodating and very helpful on anything that we needed while we were there. The only complaint I would have and it is a small one is that it had rained earlier in the day and had stopped for the wedding. They sat the wedding guest's chairs in the lawn and everyone was sinking in the mud when they sat down and the chairs were still wet while we were being sat. It is such a beautiful place that they should take the time and invest in concrete or a patio for the area where guest's sit for the wedding.

New Years Eve
Dec 2018 • Couples
Attended the New Years Eve “Speakeasy Soirée” and had a wonderful time! Plan to go back again. The estate is beautiful and well maintained. Did not know what to expect, but now I know and will be prepared for the next time with my 1920’s garb.

Who was POWELL CROSLEY?
Aug 2017
You need to make reservations with the Manatee Co Convention to tour the estate but it is well worth your time and effort. Mr. Crosley made is fortune by developing the inventions and ideas of others. Those of us "seniors" may remember Crosley Field home of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, Crosley refrigerators, radios, record plays and cars.They were all products brought to public attention by Powell Crosley.
The house is near to the John and Mable Ringling home, Ca d'Zan, situated on the college campus on US Rt. 41, close to the Sarasota Airport.
It features tile and glass from the mines and factories of SE Ohio. Beautiful rooms fit for the elite. It is currently used as a venue for many weddings. The tour led by a docent takes an hour +/-. Architecture and features of the home are uniqued. Probably best for teens on up.

Rarely open - excellent attraction
Mar 2018 • Couples
Read in the local paper that house was to be open for a rare public viewing. Was not disappointed. Beautifully maintained and the Crosley family history is very interesting. If you get a chance to visit - do it.

We were here for an outdoor wedding - lovely grounds and sunset on the bay. We were able to go into the house, but not into some of the rooms.

New Year's Eve Spectacular
Dec 2017 • Friends
Every New Years Eve there is a "speakeasy" held here with "gambling", music and dancing. Most everyone gets into the spirit of the occasion and dresses appropriately. It is the BEST Sarasota event of the year. So get your flapper dress, and get ready for next year.

Scenic place for a waterside wedding
Oct 2017 • Couples
We attended an October wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate, and the setting was very picturesque as sunset approached. Both the ceremony and reception were outside, with the dinner just inside the mansion. It was a humid day and some guests had issues with mosquitos, but the event was beautiful in spite of the uncomfortable climate. The Estate was very easy to find, just across from Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport.
