We really enjoyed our visit here. Listening to our historian/guide took us back in time to what it could have been like in 1775. It was a rainy day, although a bit windy and cooler, umbrellas came in handy and we made the most of our day If you are in the area, don't miss taking the tour

Our family decided to visit the homestead while visiting Burlington. I agree with some of the other write-ups. Very difficult to find the property entrance. Nice property, tour of house is ok at best, the guide was good. We missed the general introduction to the tour as a school tour was back to back with us and they wanted us... More

Since it was raining and I could not go on the lake cruise, i decided to drive around the area. I followed the signs to Ethan Allen/s homestead and found myself in a deserted overgrown park. I did not go inside the home, not sure which building was his home - no signs. The buildings were not open when I... More

Our tour guide was very informative and entertaining. He really made the tour. They have restored the house back to its original size, a simple home.

So much of the history of Vermont is wound up with Ethen Allan and you can't get any more Ethan Allen then the house he built and lived in. It's a small house with the bottom rooms essentially restored to as they would have been during Allen's time there. The tour guide was knowledgable and gave a bit of equal... More

We visited the Homestead on a drizzly day and were the only visitors. The exhibits in the visitor center were informative, and we enjoyed viewing the Homestead, but it was really strolling the grounds we enjoyed most (even in the rain), which one can do pretty much anywhere in Vermont. I would say allow an hour to 90 minute tops... More

This is a cool historic place, forgotten and discovered a couple of decades ago to be the most probable farmstead of one of the founding fathers of the state of Vermont. Restored homestead, guided tours, events, walking trails, etc.

This was a fun way to learn about Ethan, see his homestead and watch a film about his life and living in these times. The staff were excellent and made this a fun day, thank you, thank you.
