When talking about a favorite place on our Olympic Peninsula vacation, we both decided this was it. We spent about three hours here walking all the trails. Trees, flowers, ponds, birds and the mansion. All were beautiful and well cared for. The view from the...More

For the small sum of $10 you get to wander the private home and gardens of a once great family...and the gardens are extensive, varied and beautifully maintain. Linger all day if you choose and take in the beautiful views at every turn. No food...More

It's a 150-acre garden and a forest originally built by a lumber family on Bainbridge Island. The gardens are spectacular any time of year with native flowers and a huge array of plants, beautifully designed and kept up. You can explore the rolling landscape on...More

I love this place and have been here at least half a dozen times. The moss garden alone is worth the trip -- simply unforgettable, spectacular, amazing. In fact, all of Bloedel is inspired and gorgeous. The walk along the bark path near the stream,...More

Wonderful gardens and woodland. A friend of ours stumbled upon it during a previous trip and described it as “magical”. High praise to live up to, but it more than accommodated. The home is also wonderful with a spectacular water view.

I would have given this five stars had they labeled some of the plants and trees so that we could identify those we did not know. We spent a nice couple of hours there and fdo recommend it!!

Bloedel Reserve is a Pacific Northwest gem. The variety of landscapes within the Reserve is extraordinary. There are so many unique plants to be seen.
