Check Out:  The atmosphere. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, the Vizcaya Mansion is a fully renovated historical landmark located in beautiful midtown Sacramento. Built in 1899, this 6,500-square foot, white colonial revival is graced with a Victorian tower, massive bay windows and an impressive columned entrance suitable for its original owner turn-of-the-century attorney, Philip Driver.

Don’t Miss:  The Penthouse and Carriage Rooms. We’re a fan of all of the rooms at Vizcaya, but you must check out one these featured accommodations. The Penthouse makes up the entire third floor of the Mansion for a generous 900 square-feet of space, with a dining table and chairs, two sofas, one queen sized brass bed in the living room, and a queen-sized bed in the private bedroom. The Carriage Rooms add nice touches with a comfortable king bed and en-suite bath with generous soaking tub and separate shower. For added romance, there’s also a wood stove or fireplace in each with private outside access.
