Reviewed August 9, 2013

We've attended two Friday evening concerts so far on Burritt's grounds. the music was great but the venue is what made it special - historic mountain-top property overlooking Huntsville to the west. Bring lawn chairs and a picnic dinner and you will ease in to the weekend. Drinks are available on site and you can arrange to dine up there as well.

Mansion beautiful inside, but seemed rather small. Loved the car in his garage. Nice views from mountain top. Great for a nice family day. I recommend if you have kids you tour the mansion 1st and then do Whimsical Woods. Whimsical Woods is like a fairy tale land filled with fun and games for the kids to solve along with play areas and the houses/barns are like viewing the days back in time. It's ALL beautiful! The wicked witch from snow white came over and offered our daughter an apple, lol, so that was neat. Affordable, easy to find, and a bit cooler being higher up so that was nice.

Great place to go with the entire family. History for the adults and great activities for the kids. Just a few minutes from downtown Huntsville but it feels like you have stepped in time with the log cabins and barnyard animals.

Fun for the children- Whimsical Woods is so creative and entertaining. Cooler temps and great views of the city. Extremely interesting mansion for the adults. Take advantage of this site.

I have been to Burritt several times and have always enjoyed it. The mansion is really interesting and there's lots to see inside, but the real fun is on the grounds. The buildings and gardens and animals are so much fun! Kids always enjoy it and there are great views of the city. There are picnic tables and places to sit and relax, and they often have family events like concerts.
