My husband and I have visited many gardens, but Bellingrath has been the best. We enjoyed spending the day there, learning the history of the Bellingrath family and their generosity. The home was also beautifully done. This has been a highlight of our vacation.

This is a beautiful landmark house with an interesting history. The antiques and porcelain are outstanding. Mr. Bellingrath was an innovator in furnishing the house. The gardens are equally stunning.
