Wander with wonder!
Walk the winding paths and gardens on your own, or with a guide, and explore the famous main house and separate “Boys’ House” where sunlight pours through stained glass. Explore the hand-built home of artists James Hubbell and his wife Anne, view his paintings, jewelry and sculptures on display, and bask in the beauty of our Laguna Mountains—whatever your pleasure, you will be inspired by the way nature and art can truly dance together as one.
Admission fees go entirely to the non-profit Ilan-Lael Foundation, dedicated to preserving the property and its legacy of bringing art and nature events to the community. We hope to see you here!

What will I see on the tour?
Our Open House tour is a self-guided walking tour of the Ilan-Lael property, a 10-acre compound comprised of nine unique and hand-made structures. The Father's Day tour provides access to the organic garden and nine structures that comprise the living areas and art studios created by artist James Hubbell. Ilan-Lael is the private home of the Hubbell family. Our event is staffed completely by volunteers.
Can I stay longer than my tour time?
Yes. We realize it may take longer than you think to drive to our event, so we accept morning and afternoon tickets throughout the day.
