A Garden from the Golden Age

Filoli Mansion and path with a bench and bush

When you visit the gardens and country house at Filoli, you are stepping back in time to experience the Golden Age of American gardens and architecture. No, time travel has not yet been perfected, but you will feel like it has when you experience this slice of early 20th century American life. Located about 20 minutes from the LiA Hotel, Filoli is recognized as one of the best remaining examples of early 20th-century American country estates. This beautiful property was developed between 1915-1917 and has miraculously withstood the test of time. The House itself has breathtaking Georgian features like a beautiful entry courtyard, a hipped roof with paired chimneys, and wrought ironwork around the windows. In addition to The House, Filoli is the home of an exquisite garden, a nature preserve, an estate trail, and even shopping and dining options. It's the perfect place to spend a day lost in the beauty and splendor of the extraordinary combination of nature and history.
