The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands

Sunnylands, completed in 1966, was the winter home of the late Ambassadors Walter and Leonore Annenberg. Designed by midcentury architect A. Quincy Jones, the 25,000-square-foot house displays original furniture and décor by interior designer William Haines and partner Ted Graber. With a collection of Tang, Ming, and Ching dynasty artifacts, silver-gilt, Meissen porcelain, Stueben glass, Flora Danica, and sculpture by 19th and 20th century artists, Sunnylands has played a role in 20th and 21st century American history. As directed by the Annenbergs, the estate, often referred to as “Camp David of the West,” serves as a sanctuary for high-level national and world leaders seeking the privacy, the peace, and “the pause” needed for solving the most pressing national and international issues. Admission to the Center & Gardens, which includes nine acres of desert gardens, art and educational exhibits, a café, and a gift shop, is free. TOURS: 90-minute Historic House Tour $45 per person. Tour of the 25,000 square foot home. 90-minute Bird tour $35 per person. The Open-Air Experience $20 per person. A 45-minute shuttle tour of the Sunnylands grounds and golf course.
