I'm going to be reviewing the Gardens (not that the mansion isn't wonderful...) where I find myself going over and over thru the seasons and the years. I am never disappointed at the sweeping panorama when first arriving. And then the anticipation of the flowers in the walled garden, the rose garden, the woodland walk~ all depending on the timing...

Great property to pleasantly spend few hours. There is a tour of the "mansion" itself or you can walk it on your own. The surrounding gardens are so enjoyable, particularly in spring. We went when the lilac flowers were in full bloom, so the heady aroma was heavenly.

The moment you enter the property you feel the outside world start to fade away. If you don't know, this property includes a house, gardens and larger landscaped grounds that were owned by a wealthy family who made their fortune at a time when many folks must have been exploited in order for them to become so rich. Setting that... More

My children and I had a beautiful picnic on the grounds. The area was immaculate. We first took a tour of the the wonderful house. The tour guide made the tour of the mansion very interesting. After the tour we walked through the wonderful grounds. The gorgeous flowers and landscaping made us feel so serene. We highly recommend a visit,... More

Beautiful place to walk through, mansion was beautiful. The gardens are kept well and there is a lot to see, make sure you take the path around the lake too. Nice place to visit in spring with everything in bloom.

An excellent and historic place to while away a Spring or Summer afternoon. They have gorgeous flowers and the landscaping is also beautiful as well the mansion is well kept and if you are there when it's closed you can peek in through the windows lol. Highly recommend the visit! I went there once during a horse show, wonderful.
