The mosquitoes were really bad. The house looked interesting although we didn't go in. Not much else to see. The guard at the gate was rude and unprofessional.

The Park itself is a beautiful place! However the Volunteers at the park are vindictive and interfered every step of the way during the setup and process of the wedding. They called their manager, and he even said, it was O.K. for us to have...More

We needed a break from the sun and are very interested in history, so this was a welcome respite. The tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable about the history and furnishings in the house. The grounds are beautiful as is the bayou.

Eden Gardens is located on 160+ acres off the beaten path on the Emerald Coast. The grounds occupy a beautiful setting and you should take the tour of the Wesley House, an 1897 mansion, while you are there. The house is loaded with antiques and...More

Yes, it costs $4 per person for the home tour. There is also an entrance fee for the park which is $4 per car and pay by honor system. The grounds are open all year but on Tuesdays and Wednesdays the house is closed.
