A beautiful old mansion, full of period furnitues, glass, paintings, etc. Self-guided tours. Many out-buildinds to explore as well. Old carriages were interesting. Beautiful garden.

I don't think the people leaving reviews realise that Olive & Reg are both quite old & the stairs at Monte Cristo are very steep. It's not easy for them to do to the tours themselves & I think people should respect that. They are letting you into their home & because of that I don't think it's overpriced. Reg... More

Other than beautiful gardens, the home (on the outside) was beautiful. Inside was dirty. We stayed the night. Had no ghostly feelings, no sightings etc. The truth is a little far fetched not just stretched. Food poor, very over priced for what was given.

As someone who's a bit of a ghost and history buff, the Monte Cristo Homestead has been on my bucket list for a fair while. I really enjoyed visiting this extremely interesting house. Guided tours during the day are no longer offered due to changes of circumstances in the family who own and run the homestead, so my partner and... More

I did the dinner tour and overnight B&B stay at the house. I found this house and its grounds beautiful and was fascinated by all the stories. The hosts were lovely and knew a lot of history about the house. It was lovely to be able to go and experience this private residence.

I went to the Monte Cristo during the day on Sunday, I was by myself in the court yard near the old maid quarters and I heard a sound so I just thought "take pictures u never know!" So I did, I walked up to the old building and took photos as I approached the entrance, I didn't see anything... More

We were very disappointed with our visit... Very hard to get that eerie feeling of it being haunted when the owners vacuumed the floors the entire time we were there. Lovey house, furniture and gardens, love the history of the place. And I managed to get another fridge magnet for my collection!!

I am a paranormal investigator living in California. I visited the Homestead about 6 years ago by myself, and had such a positive experience, I wanted to bring my husband this time. He is not interested in anything paranormal, but we still had to pay for the ghost tour for him, which he did not go on. $400 for dinner,... More
