The Butterfly Estates

A 3,614-square-foot glass greenhouse dominates the landscape at The Butterfly Estates, where hundreds of butterflies flutter about. Monarchs, swallowtails, and rarer breeds flash their prismatic wings as they sip from tropical-nectar plants, alight on tree branches, and play proboscis patty-cake with their neighbors. Visitors soothe their souls with the peaceful sound of rushing waterfalls within the space, which is also punctuated with signs describing the insect residents and promoting environmental conservation. When sitting in the front yard dressed like a giant butterfly fails, the center can advise guests on how to attract butterflies to their gardens at home.

The Estates comprises more than just the glass conservatory, however; in adjacent refurbished homes from the early 20th century, the caretakers have installed a café, a gift shop, and a sweets shop serving ice cream and fudge. At ZCrepes Cafe, patrons recline on a covered wraparound porch to nibble paninis and salads or sip from cups of shade-grown organic coffee. Fresh breezes waft through the outdoor area as diners empty their cups and plates, all made from natural compostable materials in keeping with the center’s eco-conscious philosophies.
