My husband and I were taken by the beautiful grounds and the "simplicity" of such an enormous house. Although the house tour could stand on its own, the rooms are filled with great American art pieces by various artists that most of us non-artsy people would know including Remington, Cassatt, Homer and Wood, among several others. We would highly recommend... More

For an overall view of what Reynolda was all about one must start here and progress on to Reynolda Village and Wake Forrest University. The tour begins with a short video in the visitors entrance before continuing on your self guided tour of this tri-level home. Each guest receives an informational audio device to listen to at various points of... More

The property is gorgeous, the house is beautifully maintained, but something is missing and that is even a fraction of news about the dysfunctional family who lived within. The audio tour is devoid of anything controversial beyond stating that one of the sons died mysteriously ( in the house). There were staffers scattered throughout the house but none spoke to... More

The location was beautiful, the staff so helpful and the grounds were breathtaking! Favorite spot was the basement with bowling lane, arcade games and old fashioned bar.

I have visited this house numerous times over the last 35 years. It never disappoints. There is so much history surrounding it. The staff do an excellent job of keeping the house and grounds in top shape. Lots of walking trails around outdoors along with the gardens to see. Grab a great lunch or dinner on the estate after you... More

Mother in law does not. Not sure why not. The house has interesting/quirky features that add to the charm. Good itinerant museum area. Important though controversial piece of history for the area. Tobacco contributed to growth and development of more than the city. Contributed much more as we'll.

Very interesting historical house. It was a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours indoors since it was hot and muggy outside. I enjoyed, a free audio guide was included in the price of admission which was $14 per person. I think kids would be bored
