I went with family to see "A Christmas Carol" at this beautiful estate during Christmas 2016. It was a delightful experience. The performers were professional, the venue was charming, there was singing, fun, laughter, and a feeling of simple enjoyment. I hope that this event continues to take place every year. Don't miss it if you are in the Bradenton,... More

This is a beautiful location and the volunteers are very friendly but it is not something that holds your attention for very long. Unlike the Ringling Estate this is quite a bit smaller and much faster to visit. It is still worth the visit but don't plan to spend your entire day there just maybe an hour or so.

This historical treasure is only open for rentals and a few special events every year. Despite the fact that the area is currently hosting multiple exhibits about Powell Crosley throughout Bradenton and Sarasota and there is a small museum on site, the public cannot access his property and home. Ironic that they would highlight his life and career and not... More

Me and my then fiance visited this location during our search for a wedding venue. The place is absolutely beautifal from the masion to the surronding area. This place is perfect for a wedding, dinnnet party or any other type of social gathering. The mansion is in great condition and is stunning. The back view od the water is memorizing.... More

Crosley is a big name in Cincinnati, my home town. The Crosley's "winter" getaway spot is so charming with sweeping bay views and beautiful old tile work. I really enjoyed poking around the rooms and outside areas.

We set aside a Tuesday afternoon to see the Powel Crosley Estate and Museum and were so excited to see it as he was such an interesting character. The website and the Facebook page clearly said it was open from 10-4. We got there and on the closed gate was a sign that clearly said "Closed today for a private... More

We had an outdoor dinner just in time for the sunset. just amazing, I can't say enough, that's the only word that comes to mind.

Our daughter selected Powel Crosley Estate for the venue for her wedding. This was a destination wedding so a lot of planning and hoping for beautiful weather when into it. The day of the wedding, which was in early March, came and the weather was beautiful. The house and grounds were a perfect setting for a romantic sunset wedding. It... More

Looking to kill sometime while waiting around the airport? This old estate on the bay is a great choice. I highly recommend their holiday events in December. Even locals have to try it at least once.
