Queen Anne Cottage and Coach Barn is a Victorian style pair of buildings at Baldwin Lake, on the grounds of the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden, located in Arcadia and the San Gabriel Valley of southern California.

Elias Jackson "Lucky" Baldwin built the elaborate Coach Barn near the pond in 1879, and 'Baldwin's Belvedere' or the Santa Anita Ranch Guest Cottage on a peninsula in the pond in 1885−1886. They are a California Historical Landmark, and were placed on the National Register of Historic Places for their significance as examples of Queen Anne Style architecture and for the associated, largely intact Victorian landscape design gardens.

  • Simply breathtaking. A discovery as you wander around these gardens. It is as you imagined it should be from 1900. I almost looked for the horse and carriage that would take me back in time.
  • It has very Beautiful and Amazing views of the nature surrounding it. The Queen 👑 Anne Cottage is Extrordinary I like the Architecture the Architect put into that Cottage. I Loved 💘 all the Beautiful views it had throughout the whole place I really enjoy being around places that are surrounded by nature. I went here with my family a few times. One of those times it was during Christmas when they have the lights all throughout the entire place. Those lights were very amusing and amazing.
