    We recently celebrated our son and his bride's wedding reception in the newly renovated Great Room with the cocktail hour in the Selby Mansion. The Mansion has always been one of my favorites; however, the new Great Room is absolutely beautiful and required very little in the way of decorations and lighting. Our guests were quite impressed with the venue and the attention to detail was wonderful.

    Beautiful gardens! The brand new children's rainforest area was a treat and it's hard not to enjoy the fragrant blossoms along the coast. We'll be returning soon.

    A great experience! The gardens along with the gift shop and the spectacular Christy Payne home was well worth the price of admission. Not to mention the view of the bay. Would definitely return.

    A beautiful way to spend a day! Besides all the amazing array of plants and environments, the grounds had stunning views of the bay around Sarasota and the city's skyline. So many picture opportunities!
    Pricey entrance fee, but we felt it was worth it when we ended our visit there!
