In 1875, Colonel Samuel West Peel built a marvelous villa tower Italiante mansion on the outskirts of Bentonville, Arkansas. It was a working farmstead surrounded by 180 acres of apple trees. The Peel Mansion is an outdoor museum of heritage roses, perennials, and native plants. Various vignette gardens are interlaced among curvilinear walks and large shade trees creating a most appropriate setting for this great historic building of Northwest Arkansas. Also on the site is the pre-Civil War Andy Lynch log cabin which serves as a gatehouse and Museum Store at the entrance to the grounds. *Tours are available every hour on the hour.* The Peel Mansion Museum & Heritage Gardens offers a variety of event options - wedding ceremony and reception, rehearsal dinners, group luncheons and tours, as well as civic or corporate events. We have the perfect venue for your special event!

This mansion is in the Victorian style with many authentic pieces. There are steps to gain access to the second floor. The guides are very informative with many anecdotal stories. The gardens around the mansion are also very nice. Would not recommend when the weather...More

My wife and I attended an art showing at the Peel Mansion. There's a lot of history stored up in this place. Very interesting.

Nice place to tour and bring you back into the "Good Ole Days". Beautiful furniture, fixtures and time period antiques. Walk around the gardens as well and see all the landscaping.

There is a guided tour of the home, some gardens and a small gift shop. Tours were being given only on the hour when we were there in Aug. 2017. The house wasn't anything special. The gardens were nice but not extensive. The house is...More

The Peel Mansion offers guided or self-guided tours. I recommend the guided as our docent was very knowledgeable and interesting. It was built in 1875 and salvaged from near ruin. It has period furniture, but not a lot belonging to the Peels. The gardens are...More

While, not much of the house or the furnishings are original, the restoration is as accurate as possible. They even did core samples of the walls to determine paint color and wallpaper in order to replicate it. The furnishings are all accurate to the time...More

We arrived just after 3 so we missed the last house tour of the day. We did spend time wandering through the nicely kept gardens.

Hi @JohnandKariF - thank you for inquiring about Drink the Garden...of course it's a GREAT event! It will very much be worth "battling the heat." We're also increasing this year to seven mixologists (from four last year). We... More
