It's appropriate....

The mansion look takes you back in time but the innovative programs in arts and other activities are great.

The gardens here are incredible. I have been there many times and always like to go alone when I have much to think about. Very therapeutic to my mind. Although i always enjoyed alone, would be a great place for single parents to bring their children to bond and communicate.

The Needleart that's exhibited is exquisite; so intricate and unbelievably unique.The boutique set up in one wing of the house is lots of fun to visit. Tours of the historic house are interesting too.

This estate holds it's own in archer true and historical significance. Beautiful estate and gardens, which should be... More

This stately Georgian red brick mansion is in a picturesque, peaceful country setting on 70 acres off Route 197 / Laurel-Bowie Road, a very busy secondary highway. Built between 1781 and 1785, Montpelier Mansion was home to Maj. Thomas Snowden and his wife Anne. It was originally a 9,000 acre plantation. Maj. Snowden had 162 slaves, plus indentured servants.

My father grew up in a historic Howard County mansion originally built for one of the daughters that grew up in Montpelier. Going and visiting Montpelier was like taking a walk back in time for my father, but also a wonderful experience for the rest of us as well. The house is beautiful and interesting and the grounds are gorgeous... More

This mansion has art shows and lots of events for little or no cost. You can find prettier plantations but I don't know any one with more activities per year. If there is an admission fee it is never high.
