I am not a MacKenzie Childs fan but the beautiful rural location, intriguing Farm House tour, and retail shop make this a worthwhile destination. I enjoyed learning the background story of the original founders so much so that I came home to research them online. Apparently they had a ferry boat B and B in NJ which was moved to... More

My daughter and I were visiting Wells College and stopped here on the way back home. Conveniently located on Rt. 90. We got there at 1:15, next tour was 2:30, so we didn't stay for that. It was an interesting shop and enjoyed it for 1/2 hour. It is a beautiful spot and the drive along the lake was lovely.

While the results our visit were disappointing, the establishment was beautiful and located on large manicured grounds. Located in Aurora New York the selections to choose from we're plentiful but the prices for a factory store were very high and appearing to be at regular retail. The items reveal superb workmanship and quality but a small small flower vase stamped... More

The shop was great if you like that sort of gaudy over priced stuff. The buildings and grounds were beautiful overlooking the lake in the distance. We did not take the house tour.

A visit to the showroom is a must and a tour of the "Farm" house a must as well.... Like something out of Alice in Wonderland

This place is the paradise of all that is Mackenzie child's. I went to a barn sale unlike any other, where amazing hand painted items abound, at pretty deep discounts. The landscape is beautiful and the property is beautifully maintained. Not too much cell service in the area which can be pretty tricky with navigating there... Worth the trip if... More

If you're a devotee of the expensive, horror-vacuii style of majolica ware that these folks produce, you will absolutely adore this place. If not, then it's still a pleasant way to spend an hour or two, even if you do walk out with your eyes vibrating and your hands empty. The MacKenzie-Childs brand has gone through some bumps and grinds.... More

We were attracted to the Pottery because there is some exceptionally beautiful tile and pottery used at the E.B. Morgan. The colors and patterns are like a fairyland. I was able to watch one of the potters as she hand painted a bowl. I purchased some wonderful presents to take home.

Not our style of decor but very interesting. The facility is on a 75 acre lot and they raise cattle, geese, chickens and have gardens. Can sign up for a tour or watch a video to see how the pottery is made.
