A great place to visit. I pushed my disabled husband through the grounds on a mostly-paved path. We both appreciated the ambiance and beauty of the foliage and enjoyed the Japanese house.

This is my first visit in the fall! It’s a beautiful walk even in a rainy day. The new gift shop is a destination visit. It’s worthwhile to have an annual pass if you choose to visit a time or two.

We weren't sure about visiting this place but it turned out to be one of the best places I visited during my Seattle trip. A beautiful, peaceful walk around the woods and to top it all the mansion at the hilltop was the highlight. There...More

What a treat to have a local tell me to visit here while my brief trip to the island. A calm, peaceful walk through partial wooded areas, big open fields with a pay off of walking along the cliffs where the Bloedel Mansion is. I...More

Our fall in the PNW has been unseasonably warm this year and the foliage at Bloedel today did not disappoint. The grounds are just gorgeous, very well maintained and an easy walk through a variety of visual and stunning areas. The zen garden, the reflection...More

Manicured pathways lead you through beautiful, forested areas and to a lovely home which is open for viewing. The highlight for me was another home of Japanese architecture. A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours.

We did the hike, and it was absolutely beautiful. We even spotted a bald eagle in a tree above the water. Some areas were off limits due to a wedding, but it was still an amazing place to visit.

Serenity made for a perfect day. Calm. Peaceful. Harmonic conversion. In touch with earth. Japanese gardens were perfect, as if no human hand had touched it. Japanese maples were abundant; think of fall colors in October. I want to come back many times.

No. Cars are to be parked just inside the entry gate and then you have to walk around.

Pets are not allowed. Neither are they allowed in the car, if it is parked inside.
