sunnylands estate

Sunnylands, the former Annenberg Estate, located in Rancho Mirage, California, is a 200-acre  estate currently run by The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands, a not-for-profit organization and Annenberg family trust. The property was owned by Walter and Leonore Annenberg until 2009 and had been used as a winter retreat by the couple from 1966, when the house was completed. The property is "rich with historical significance," according to the city of Rancho Mirage, which declared Sunnylands an historic site in 1990. Located at Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope Drives, the property has been the vacation site of numerous celebrities and public officials.

From June 1 to July 29, Sunnylands Center & Gardens will be open Thursdays through Sundays from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tours of the historic house and grounds, available by advance reservation, will begin at 7:15 a.m. The 90-minute tours are scheduled every 15 minutes thereafter with the last tour of the day beginning at 10 a.m. The new tour schedule, in response to the high summer temperatures, takes advantage of the coolest part of the day.

Sunnylands is closed in August. Sunnylands Center & Gardens will reopen on Saturday, September 1 at 9 a.m. Tours of the historic house and grounds will resume then also. Tickets for tours September 1 - 15 will go on sale at 9 a.m. August 15.

Kathy - Great information for anyone looking to visit the Sunnylands Center & Gardens this summer.  I'm amazed at how they have created such a beautiful cactus garden.  It's incredibly beautiful!

Sunnylands has such historical significance here in the valley-- and worldwide.  It was considered the west coast "Camp David"... many, presidents, dignitaries, and celebrities have spent time there.  K

For years this estate was strictly private... and now we can see beyond the pink wall.  Very cool!
