Visit Ilan-Lael, the hand-built sculptural home, the working-artist studios and gardens created by James and Anne Hubbell in a small group private tour.

Come and explore the architecture and art nestled amidst the oaks and boulders. Walk the winding paths and gardens on your own, enjoy live music, shop the artworks on display, and take in the beauty of the Laguna Mountains. Whatever your pleasure, you will be inspired by the way nature and art can truly dance together as one.

Each tour lasts about an hour with an additional 30 minutes for exploring the grounds. Because the living area serves as the home for James and Anne Hubbell, the living room, kitchen, and bedroom buildings are not shown during private tours. You must be reserved in advance. No walk ups please.

Tickets:  $50 per person, limit 20 persons per tour
