This house was the winter home of artists. It was designed and built to be an unique home and is still full of the original art both of the owners and that which they collected. It is quite quirky but very interesting - our guide was very well informed and really made it come alive. The gardens are good too.

The Bonnet House was a delightful place to visit. The $20 admission fee is a bit high, but I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the whimsical artists' estate.
