    I'm going later this month after my Falcon Crest tour of Napa.

    I realize it's different inside but it'll still be fun to stand in so many places I've seen on TV.

    Standing by the lily pond should be fun.

    The lily pond is at Arden Villa, not Filoli. But I hope you have fun. :)

    At least Filoli is a lot closer inside to the earlier versions of the Carrington mansion than Southfork is.

    Although there are plenty of lily ponds at Filoli, too.

    Arden Villa, not Filoli:

    I'd get carried away if I went there. I would have a mental breakdown and refuse to leave insisting it was my rightful family home. "What the hell are all these ropes doing around my furniture? And who are you people? Get out! Get out of my house! Where is Joseph?! I'm going to my bedroom and when I return I want you all out of here! Damn it!"

    I wanna see that. I really do. :lol: Go and get yourself a nice outfit and film yourself at Filoli, saying all those bitchy, diva-ish things. :D

    Oh! And be sure to throw in, "Take this junk - and your blonde tramp - and get out of my house!"

    Filoli is south of San Francisco (in Woodside, California, I think) a thousand miles west of Denver.
    Only when they shot the retrospective, "Catfights and Caviar," in April 2006.

    I visited Filoli back in 1999.
    The grounds are beautiful but the house is a lot smaller than it looks on screen, especially the driveway and front entrance.

    I think my favourite part was the carriage house and surrounding gardens and yes I did ask about the lily pond at the time.

    I recently purchased a book about Fil0li from Amazon, it includes floor plans and the histories of the Bourn family and the construction of the house.

    Is the house open to tourists/tours or how did you all get in on the property?
    It looks like the house is situated quite far from the road when you look at google map.

    If you go there, they will let you in.

    As long as it's not midnight.

    I was there in the 90´s ... 30 minutes after I was there I still was "on drugs"
    We asked a gardener about filming "Dynasty" - all she could remember was they took their own furniture from Hollywood to Woodside.

    We tried to visit Falcon Crest, too but we didn´t find it :(

    Ihave finally gotten around to editing my videos of my Filoli visit together. Sorry for the less than stellar camerwork, guess it is not my strong suit.
