My husband and I really enjoyed the historic value of this lovely mansion. I had not taken the tour since I was a child and was happy to re-visit this old gem. Informative and interesting!

The home was beyond amazing. The architecture was beautiful as well as the fact that the current owner is trying to keep the house as original as possible. The place is also a Bed and Breakfast but which would be amazing to stay in. It was well worth the cost to see it.

Took the tour with Juan, the owner. The Victorian period at its finest is present everywhere you turn. Breathtaking interior and furnishings of the period are well taken care of here. Thanks for a true look back in time and history!

I love to visit historical homes across the country. Especially ones that have been saved after neglect. The owner, Juan was my guide for my personal tour of Rockcliffe and gave me an opportunity to view the beautiful rooms and objects at a leisurely pace. His passion for what he had accomplished and what he hoped to continue was inspiring.... More

Took a great tour of this old mansion. Guide had lots of info about how these people used to live, a whole different world from the ordinary folk. Amazing to see the excess that wealth could afford. If you're into history or buildings you'll love it.

The owner gave us the tour, and it was really informative. He discussed the history of the house as well as some renovation plans. It is a beautiful mansion and I loved the Tiffany lamps and stained glass windows. It's good to know it is continuing to be restored and now it has opened as a bed and breakfast as... More

Thank you for your kind review. We are very glad that you enjoyed the tour. In our experience, our visitors on the tours are always interested in Mansion's B&B accommodations. Accordingly, we make it a point to mention that option when either a question is asked on that topic, or we are passing through one of the rooms where guests... More

I love older homes and am glad this place is being renovated. My husband and I took the three o'clock tour on July 11. The lady giving the tour had lived in the house with her husband at some point, and knew a good deal of the history of the house and the original owners. She was the only person... More

Tour was well paced and interesting. It is hard to believe some of the original wall paper and furniture survived the house sitting empty for 43 years. Thankfully, vandals spared many beautiful furnishings, chandeliers and windows.

Tiffany windows & lamps, arabian carpets and beautiful wood moldings. The exterior needs some upkeep but inside...wow. The lady who gave our 2 hour, three story tour did a really great job explaining the history of not only the family but the house and furnishings too. She was very knowledgable.
