BH_logo_color 2 inch

Known as Fort Lauderdale’s best kept secret, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens embodies old-world charm and understated elegance. Originally built in 1920 by American Artist Frederic Clay Bartlett, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is a tropical oasis.  Here you will find a lush world filled with native and exotic trees, stunning orchids and a tranquil lily pond, home to graceful swans and the yellow bonnet lily for which the house is named.  Upon arrival at Bonnet House, you will pass through ornate gates, and the commotion of the outside world will fade.  You and your guests will be swept back in time to experience a unique beachfront estate that exudes gracious living, warmth, wonder and whimsy. 

Spanning 35 acres, Bonnet House offers a variety of exquisite settings for events of any size, each uniquely beautiful.  Whether you are planning a close and intimate gathering or a grand and lavish affair, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens sets the scene for romance and timeless memories.  Our dramatic spaces, such as the hibiscus garden, fountain courtyard, water front veranda, and tree-lined alee all provide memorable possibilities. 

The Estate is shown by appointment only. For additional rental information or a tour, please contact David Woodin, Events Manager. |
