Bridge/Boat House

Bridge/Boat House

Your tour begins at the Boat House, situated in the very center of the 35-acre property with the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west. This was the delivery point for building materials brought in by barge during the construction of Bonnet House. It later stored The Bonnet, a 35-foot Richardson vessel the Bartletts used for cruising the Intracoastal Waterway.


At the end of the Bridge, the Museum Shop is up the hill to the left where water, a lite lunch and snacks are available. Turn to the right and follow the signs to begin your tour of the Main House. The first stop is the gallery to watch an introductory video about Bonnet House and the family who lived here.
