A very nice little farmstead with a beautiful mansion. Did not visit inside but did walk the gardens. There are trails that extend out quite a ways and those are probably the best feature of the property. We came because this figured on a list of a great place to picnic in Boston. We ultimately did not picnic but walked... More

You will walk up to the house, the flower garden in back and the woods and fields on the side. Deer tick infested and no bathrooms. The house is only open when rented for a function. Dogs allowed. And it is free.

We live nearby and decided to take an afternoon stroll here. I read about the grounds and offerings online, and once I visited I was deeply disappointed.

Tranquil site, just of Route 128. Classic house from 100 years ago. Stop in for a restful time. Or, rent it for an occasion -- wedding, corporate retreat, etc. It will make for a memorable time.

Off the beaten path of Route 138 lies a very special quiet and relaxing place where you can unwind with your pet and enjoy nature on a beautiful sunny day.

The Bradley Estate has a beautiful historic house and gardens. It is conveniently located near the interchange of I-93/128 and route 138. The grounds are not that big but is worth visiting if you happen to be in the area.

Since This Estate is right off a main thoroughfare Route 138 Canton, MA not too many people know it is a beautiful place to take a short hike and admire the the architecture of the home, gardens as well as chickens. It is a 90-acre country retreat that is one hundred years old where there were many elegant homes with... More
