The seasonal displays are very pretty, and the gardens are well tended. The house is lovely, especially from the outside, but we were disappointed by how much interior had been renovated into an art museum. We couldn’t help but feel it really did a disservice...More

I wish the weather would have been better for our visit but we still enjoyed touring the mansion and art exhibits. Cafe29 is adorable and has very friendly service!

The redhead was so rude at the front desk. Needs a different job. Wondered if it was just a fluke but see several other reviews for rude staff at cheekwood. Didn't tell us where to go, or give us a map.
