Set in beautiful Plymouth VT, the site is home to his birthplace and home, later in life. Also the "Summer White House". It gives a look into the life of the 30th President of the United States: and just across the street, the cemetery where he is buried. Well worth the visit.

The home is in a beautiful setting in a valley surrounded by trees. You can see the general store (where he was born in the back apartment), the house he grew up in across the street (and where he took the oath of office); a barn, a cheese factory, and a small museum. While there was 15 minute movie and... More

Very out of the way, but this is where President Coollidge was from and very much worth the time to visit. There is something for everyone. Seeing the preserved buildings, being able to watch them make cheese, and walking around in the interactive area of the visitors center. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Very much worth getting off the beaten... More

President Coolidge lived here as a boy, visited often as an adult and was here when President Harding died and vaulted him into the presidency. The rooms are all accessible for viewing, including the room where President Coolidge was inaugurated on the night Harding died. The "Summer Whitehouse" is a dance hall where the small White House staff worked and... More

I was hoping to learn something about the accomplishments of Calvin Coolidge. After visiting this site, the only things that I learned about Calvin Coolidge are that he rose to prominence because he opposed the Boston police strike and he gave Native Americans rights while President. The bottom line is there is almost nothing to learn by visiting this site.... More

I forget the chap's name, unfortunately, but it is definitely worth asking to see if he on the roster when you are visiting. As fascinating as Calvin Coolidge is, my group found itself focusing more on our guide's life story, straight out of Jack London: A Seabee veteran, he came to Vermont after the war, bought an old house in...

We stopped by here when visiting Woodstock as my husband had recently read a book about President Coolidge. It had magnificent views and was in a delightful setting. We looked the details up online and returned the following day. It is like stepping back in time! I loved all the buildings that you can enter and learn about the President... More

There is only one negative - getting there. You are either arriving from Route 4 or Route 103. Either way, it is a bit of a hike, albeit with very nice views. Located in the center on Vermont and the middle of mountains all around, the scenes you will take in are quite impressive. There is a very nice visitor's... More

We visited last fall and this was by far the best days visit we had. The room where the president was sworn in by his father reflected his small town upbringing. The visitor centre was most interesting. Good cafe etc. absolutely freezing cold in October but a really good day, we stayed there for several hours.
