The mansion was quite interesting - the docent quite well informed and friendely, but the other buildings were fascinating. I really liked seeing the way a family could set up a one room building and have space for everything without seeming crowded. There were play areas for children to work off excess energy and plenty to keep children of most... More

I had a group at the Sanders Family Christmas at Burritt on the Mountain in Huntsville on Dec. 16 and it was a wonderful event. They were highly entertaining. The music and drama were both outstanding. Well worth seeing!

The road leading to Burritt is winding and beautiful, albeit a bit narrow. The park at the top of the mountain is well run and gated (great for those with small children). Sidewalks... More

This is a real gem and is not on the main mountain, this beauty is on the 'other' mountain 'Roundtop' Mountain. Feel free to learn more about his best kept secret above Huntsville, Alabama and you will have found a real treasure... There's a ton to do with kids, they have a home-school program, and Dr. Burritt's story itself is... More

The house is only interesting in that the footprint is an X. The grounds have a restored village, which by itself is not interesting.

Nice views from this mountain top. Really serene. Also attended a reception in the banquet hall offered. Really neat place to have something like that.

We visited during the late summer and it was beautiful. The house, grounds, surrounding village; all of it was worth the trip to see. Economical entrance fee, too. Lots of things for young children to do while parents enjoy the sights.

We're new to HSV area and this was one of our first places to visit and join. It's a beautiful and peaceful place to escape the city and it's not far at all. They offer endless activities throughout the year. It's a Huntsville gem!!

A beautiful mountain top location and a number of well preserved historic structures was a surprise to find. Really interesting spot with some fabulous rental facilities.
