Fodor's Review

Starting with a sea of daffodils in April, this 33-acre estate on Bristol Harbor blooms all the way until fall. Highlights include fragant pink chestnut roses and one of largest giant sequoia trees on the East Coast. The 45-room English-style manor house is filled with original antiques and artwork.
