A wonderful home right on the bay. Beautifully decorated and well maintained mansion. The furniture is truly one of a kind. John Ringling built it for his wife Mabel and she had a hand in everything to do with the construction, design and decorating. Take your camera as it is a feast for the eyes. Make sure you enjoy the outside terrace.

It is amazing that this mansion was built in the 1920's and it is in such great shape. Take the tour of the second floor, well worth your $5

The entrance fee includes a walk through downstairs and well worth a look, plus such a bay front view lets you imagine what it would be like to travel and have this to come home to. There are guided tours at an extra charge to view the entire home. We did not choose to take it, but if you haven't seen this type home, I am sure it is a taste of Italy.

I believe this to be one of the most beautiful places in Sarasota. To think of how well they lived and and that they had visit them in the early 1900s. To see this place is wonderful and to see it at Sunset is absolutely magical. The way the sun bounces off the water onto the mansion is incredible. I think everyone needs to see it. Try to get a real tour, behind the scenes kind.

We take every out-of-town guest to see this 'pearl by the sea'. Truly, a step back in time. It's great to go through with a docent but if you don't want to pay extra or you're on a timed schedule, you can go through on your own. Pay the extra $$ to see the upstairs.
