Took a guided tour in Bonnet house in February. It was lovely to see the house inside and hear the story of the property from our great guide. Afterward we walked around the garden, which also was very nice.

Toured this really nice place while visiting Fort Lauderdale in February. We have been here prior but it had been several years ago & wanted to see it again. The story that the guide tells about the family is fascinating & the grounds are lovely.

Very pricey and horribly boring, the gardens looks like any other park in Fl, nothing unique about this place. Will not go again (even not for free).

It was night when we went to a event. It was very open and interesting to see. The home was nice and the grounds well kept. If you have time nice to go to but nothing special.

Bonnet House is known for their orchids collection. Just do not go on their orchids tour (20$ per person) in November. The flowers were not in bloom. In general, it is challenging to specify bloom seasons for orchids. Some... More
