Manitoga is mid-century modern designer Russel Wright's personal estate and should be of interest to fans of landscape architecture as well fans as mid-century house tour fans. The grounds are exquisite, and the house offers a fascinating opportunity to visit a historic property as it undergoes renovation. I think it would be great to visit this attraction over and over and different times of the year to see how the seasons change the landscape, and it will also be interesting to watch the progress as the staff continues to restore the house. As other reviewers have mentioned, be sure to wear good hiking shoes, and bring your nerve, because Wright loved steep stone stairs and had little use for protective railings of any kind! The water was too high for us to cross the stone bridge at the end of the waterfall (the only place where a protective railing has been put in place for visitors' protection) and I was actually kind of glad, because even with a railing, the prospect was a bit scary! Also do be sure to make a reservation in advance.
