Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens reviews
I’m sure the freeze a couple of months ago is mostly to blame but shocked & disappointed to find ZERO blooms. Admission fee should be reduced until blooming resumes. Impressive grounds & home. Masks..... more »
we chose Bayou Bend as our first place to visit in Houston, and found the 9 gardens delightful even though the winter snow and frost had laid many flowers low. You can tell what it must be like once..... more »
A very beautiful and peaceful place. The home is packed with history and very interesting historical items. The gardens are breathtaking and our tour guide, Carey Swan, was great! She answered all of our questions and was nice enough to give us an extra guide at the gardens. Worth every penny!
Beautiful gardens. You can take pictures and walk around and really feel the nature of the park. The house is amazing, we didn't get to tour the house but hopefully next time. We also walked around the Museum showing history, art and pictures.
