“So cool!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

I came here on a whim actually. Never heard of this place but I saw it was a stop on one of the Hollywood tours. I was in the area and decided to check it out. This is a great free park and beautiful estate. There is so much history here. Great views. Only bad thing is that you cannot take pics because you need a permit. Tons and tons of movies and tv shows were filmed here. I was lucky enough to have a park ranger walk with me and give me all the juicy details of the home. Thanks so much, you made my day!

“5 Tips For Visiting The Breathetaking Greystone Mansion”

5 Tips For Visiting The Breathetaking Greystone Mansion

#1: Check the opening hours!
Yes the park is usually open to public everyday but if there is an event like party or wedding, it is closed for public. So check before you leave! You don't want to come and be disappointed right? Check their website or call!

#2: Read the history before you come here
The history of Greystone Mansion is very fascinating and it will give you a better sense of this mansion. Well.. let me tell you a little bit about this mansion. The mansion was a wedding gift from a gold magnate, Edward Laurence Doheny Sr. to his son Edward “Ned” Laurence Doheny, Jr. It took them more than 3 years and $3 million to finish the mansion but I guess it really paid off seeing how grand it is. However, tragically only after 5 months of moving into the mansion, Ned was murdered by his friend inside the home. Very terrible huh?

#3: You cannot go inside the mansion unless...
You book private ranger tour here or you want to book the mansion for your event therefore you need to see the inside LOL! Unfortunately, I didn't know about this tour and I could only peek through the window.. Sigh.. It would have been nice though to see the interior of the mansion!

#4: Dont't forget to bring your full-charged phone camera, digicam or DLSR here!
The Greystone Mansion is undeniably exquisite and really perfect place to have your pictures taken! Every corner is really beautiful and I am sure you will find yourself ooh-aah seeing all otherworldly magnificent view and architecture here. However, if you want to take professional pre-wedding pictures take here, you must get a permit up to 2 weeks in advance. Unless.. you want to take your pre-wedding photos by your camera phone. Teehee.

#5: Do not bring your picnic basket here!
Yes yes it is so tempting to have a picnic here but.. they do not allow people to do it here! So before you got caught, please do not bring your picnic basket here.

“Good place to take a walk”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The grounds are gorgeous and the landscaping and architecture of the building are a great place to take pictures at. It's a nice change from the noisy traffic. I would not miss seeing this mansion. It's amazing. Unfortunately they do not usually let people inside but the exterior is just beautiful.
