What a special place. We toured the grounds for hours (for free!) and the gardens are lovely. Lots of great photo opportunities. We took the house tour and both the hosts were very well versed about the history of the house and property. A really well spent afternoon.

We visited the house and gardens yesterday. The home was not open for touring, but we walked the various gardens in about one hour. The gardens were open for free this summer thanks to several large donations. The annual flower garden was lovely, as it is surrounded by perennials gardens. There is a small herb garden that is maintained by... More

Absolutely one of the gems of the Mid West. The home has spectacular history. The grounds are like being in Europe. Acres of beautiful gardens, statuary, fountains, and ponds. There is even an authentic Japanese garden. For the adventurous there are trails. Once we brought the kids, dog and had a lovely picnic. There is always something new to see... More

My wife and I went there and it was okay. It was more for a women taste than a mans. The flowers look pretty.

This is a home of a super rich family of their time. They were in the newspaper business. They supported the arts and crafts movement. They loved hand made products with beauty and a purpose. There is lots of hand carved wood. The house tour is of the first floor only. The grounds are nice. They were generous and they... More

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon, and we had a wonderful time exploring the gardens. There are nooks and paths to explore all along the way. The house was not open for tours on Saturday, but we had fun just looking at the outside and imagining what it would be like to live there. We walked around for about 2... More
