yelp-reviews Following are but a few of the unsolicited “5-Star” reviews posted to about beautiful, historic Bonnet House, one of our nation’s most popular historic houses and gardens, and perhaps its most beautiful!

Ben A., Washington, DC – We loved this place. First of all it is a serene and tranquil oasis in the middle of busy Ft. Lauderdale. The art is beautiful and the story of the museum and its establishment is somehow poignant. IMO, there are some real treasures here. The gardens are beautiful. Parts of them give you a sense of what the area was like before human civilization. Overall, our visit to Bonnet House left us feeling like we had journeyed far through distance and through time.

Phylicia K., Hollywood, FL – What a gem! I had no idea this beautiful house was here in Broward! 
The history is amazing itself! To hear of the evolution between the different generations & to see all of the art is amazing!

Daniel W., Los Angeles, CA – A historic and artistic gem in Ft. Lauderdale! The spectacular house, and lush tropical grounds are like stepping back in time.

Rachel S., East Meadow, NY – I was very pleasantly surprised by my visit to Bonnet House. Everything in the home is original and in its original place. Evelyn Bartlett lived until she was 109 years old, and her story alone is enough to keep you transfixed. There are a lot more interesting details that you will learn on your tour here, more than I can describe in this review. Go see it!
