"Bonnet House" Bonnet House Tip by hayward68

Bonnet House, Fort Lauderdale: 5 reviews and 3 photos


This mansion is situated in 35 acres right in the beach area. It was once the winter residence of Frederic and Evelyn Bartlett, two artists whose work can still be seen in the mansion. The estate was donated in 1983 to the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation by Evelyn Bartlett. You can take the guided tour of the house and a self guided tour of the grounds. One other thing of note, they tell you the tour is about one and one quarter hours...that depends on your guide. My tour lasted almost two and a half! Much too long for someone who hates being in a tour group. But you have to have a guide to go inside the house.

Directions: Located between the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, just south of Sunrise Blvd at 900 North Birch Rd. Fort Lauderdale
