I loved seeing this house, so prominently featured in the old TV show, Fantasy Island. I was disappointed that you couldn’t go inside but you could look through the windows, which was nice.

Located by a large pond on the grounds of the Los Angeles Arboretum, these historic structures provide a glimpse into simpler times. They are not everyone's cup of tea, however. I took my 20-something Australian cousin since his family origins are from here, and he...More

The house is only open at certain times, however, you can look in the windows & admire the gorgeous furniture daily. They also have patio furniture in strategic spots on the veranda, so you can sit and enjoy the gardens.

A truly remarkable bit of local history - reminding us of the time when all this area was in the hands of a few ranching familes. Great place!

This was our first visit at the L.A. County Arboretum. We were especially interested in seeing the Queen Anne Cottage & Barn - which were gems BUT you can't go into the cottage. As we understand, it's only open twice a year. You can look...More

When you travel around L.A and see that most people live about 10 feet from their neighbor's house, this wonderful place reminds you that it wasn't always like it is noe. Granted, the cottage and carriage barn have been moved, but they always had lots...More

I also wrote how great the Los Angeles County Arboretum was to visit. This is just one of the great things inside the arboretum. The Queen Anne Cottage was built by Lucky Baldwin ( one of the three great railroad barons of the west) to...More
