“Picnic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This park is nice. There is a tour of the old house. There are bathrooms. No food places. All there is too see is a open area that is next to the bay.

“Step back in time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

The real Miami. Get an idea what it was like to live here 100 years ago. Beautiful setting and the house is lovely. Guides offer interesting stories and are very informative.

“beautiful little spot on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

There's not much to see. The house is interesting just for the fact that it's the oldest in Miami. But the view is great, and you don't get the chance to see nineteenth century history in Florida every day, so go see it!

“Not much to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Me and my wife were in Coconut Grove, and we decided to visit the Barnacle State Historic Site after lunch. The entrance was very promising with a trail in the native woods, but it quickly ends up on an opened area (size of a small soccer field). At that point we got that weird feeling that we were in someone's backyard.

“Historical place to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The Barnacle has lots of history. It is a beautiful place to visit in Coconut Grove. the Tour guides are highly recommended it is a house with lots of history and a boat house that has been renovated throughout the years due to hurricanes and storms at it is on the bay with beautiful view. Sometimes the have concerts at night and movie nights.
