I have the pleasure of living less than a mile from this beautiful estate. My family and I spend many Saturdays just walking the property or picnicking on the grounds. Best time to visit is in the fall when it's cool out, or during summer when you can bring a lawn chair and just take in some sun along the... More

Get there for 10:30 or 3:00 for the guided tour of the house. The guide is very knowledgeable, and gives you a lot of interesting facts.

Since I had visited Vizcaya a few years ago, I was interested to see the waterfront estate of Charles Deering (James Deering's older half-brother). Peering Estate is in a beautiful setting, but is a lot less "grand" than Vizcaya. We were able to tour all of the buildings that are open to the public in a little over an hour.... More

This is a wonderful place to hike, see beautiful historic buildings and see Manatees in a man-made inlet. Have a wonderful time exploring the estate grounds.

Spent several afternoons at the Deering Estate. Great place to tour the houses, spend the afternoon by the water drinking wine and snacks. Great view of the ocean, historic house and enjoyable surroundings. Don't miss the annual Seafood Festival and Jazz under the stars-great events.

Second year we've come for the festival and once again happy we did! To begin, The entire setting is picturesque. Wooded areas are beautiful to walk through. The palms swaying against the back drop of the sparkling bay. Then there are the musicians that walk around dancing in their colorful costumes and stilts. Lots of food vendors with delicious dishes... More

(half brother of James from Vizcaya fame) We went on a weekday when there was no official tour. Luckily we were able to meet with a person who worked there who filled us in about the... More

Had to check out the Deering Estate after being wowed again at Vizcaya recently. The home and grounds are very plain compared to opulent Vizcaya. However, my love for the views of Biscayne Bay certainly do not disappoint from the Deering Estate. The Stone House and Cottage are interesting, but require a lot of renovation and clean up in my...
