If you like history and Mansions -- this is a must see when you are in the area. It's a self tour and the cost is $10 which goes towards restoring the Mansion. I love the victorian decor of the early 1900's & amazed that Dorr Felt had a 25 room built on serveral hundred of acres for his wife... More

When you decide to tour a mansion, you want to see something amazing; at least I would. The estate is huge, but there is not a lot of information to go along with the tour. It is self guided and some of the rooms were working offices, so there was nothing old in them. The top floor is a ballroom... More

Great location for a wedding; amble rooms for the bride and groom parties; a chapel for the ceremony, ball room, room for a tent, and history for all the guests.

A great restored mansion with a true historically redo in mind. The outside water feature was terrific.

Loved the fact they had someone explaining what has been done to remodle the mansion. We started on the main floor and it was so interesting all the things that have been there. I did not like the fact that their were steps to climb after standing for a hour litening to the stories. I want to go back and... More

Step back into another era, experience restoration of the setting of a true love story, Dorr Felt's devotion to his wife and family is present in the setting and attention to detail he constructed this family 'cottage'. Thank you for keeping this treasure for all to enjoy.

This is a restored estate of a Chicago adding machine magnate. The main house is largely restored. A chapel has been added. They're working on the carriage house now. If you are in the area, it is worth a visit.

We were there for a wedding. Beautiful grounds and nicely renovated. It's almost 100 year old building, so few bathrooms and a little drafty but to be expected. Beautiful venue for a celebration. No idea how much to rent and obviously u can spend as much as you want depending on catering
