  • We had a good time spending a cool, Fall Saturday walking around Cheekwood. They had fall decorations out, including two pumpkin houses and a decorated archway walk. The mansion is open to walk around and has a fine art gallery upstairs. While we enjoyed our visit, we found it to be a little too pricey for a one-day admission for our family. There was also a lot of construction going on at the time.

  • Beautiful grounds and gardens. The mansion was spectacular. Although we didn't get to see all of the gardens because of a downpour we still enjoyed what we did see. Can't wait to go back again. The staff was very informative and a very nice employee drove us back to our car on the carts because we were parked a long way and it was pouring rain. Thanks for the great southern hospitality!!

  • Loved the house and gardens! Especially the special pumpkin house and train exhibits they had set up! It would have been nice to have a guided tour of the house but that might have been a different admissions fee. The self guided tour was still nice though.

  • I love Cheekwood. I have been going since I was a child. The grounds are very nice to walk around. If you are a plant nut like me, you will enjoy the diversity of plantings. If you are into art, plenty for you as well.

  • We usually love our visits to Cheekwood but when we went last Friday there was a lot of construction occurring. The usually peaceful gardens were anything but! I think Cheekwood should offer reduced entry prices if they are in a period of heavy construction, as for two of us, this cost $45.
