Beautiful building, prior home of Dr. Plummer. It is a really cool pplace and the grounds are a really nice place to walk or take pictures. It's a nice place to get away from Rochester and feel secluded (even though it is in Rochester). Great for organizing your thoughts on a walk

Renowned Mayo physician Henry Plummer designed and built this lovely home on top of a scenic hill in SW Rochester. Unfortunately, the house tours are very limited to a few weekends In August. And there's very little original furnishings, as compared to the elaborate Mayowood, former home of Charlie Mayo et. al. The grounds are attractive, and can be seen... More

Beautiful home nestled on a hill overlooking the city. Gardens are gorgeous and is a wonderful place to come to get away. The city offers tours on Wednesdays, but I am slightly disappointed at the price they charge to see the home. Overall, worth the trip!

House was neat to see and grounds were beautiful. Attended a wedding there. Wish I had time to explore the house and grounds a little more but was busy with the wedding.

Though not for more than 100 people, this is a fairy tale location for luncheon, men's club events, and smaller weddings. The gardens with fountains are perfect wedding locations with the house and patio perfect for any elegant occasion. Everyone loves the history and public tours are available sometimes. (see website). However, when we rent the house its available only... More

Took trolley tour to see the grounds and home but from the exterior only. Grounds and home are beautiful but disappointed it wasn't open to guests in groups. History of Plummer family was interesting.
