The tour was so interesting that it inspired me to read Last Train to Paradise. Flagler is a fascinating man and the house is wonderfully maintained.

Still the most glorious place to visit, you'll want to move in! Due to the weather, it's unfortunate that they refuse to reschedule Founders Day! T

Beautiful history inside and out. Henry Flagler was quite a visionary. His legacy lives on for all residents and tourists to enjoy. I was captivated by his love of art. He recognized paradise when he saw it. We are all fortunate to enjoy it today...More

This well preserved property is a must see for all! The tastefully manicured grounds surround this stately home which boasts significant period grandeur. Be sure to enjoy High-Tea in the Cafe' des Beaux, this is such a treat with an amazing view!

We are planning to come on Monday or Wed. Mar. 13th or 15th. Do we need to reserve ahead for high tea or can we just come & get tickets? We probably will get there early...@10 or 10:30. What will the total cost be per person? Thank you. Iris

Sorry, I just found this question. To my knowledge, you can reserve a place for tea when you arrive. They do have a website which should give you more information. Enjoy your visit.
