The ex-Seabee volunteer guide was amazing

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... read 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.

This was supposed to have been a 30 minute stretch-the-legs stop and turned into a 3 hour visit (with lunch!). Truth be told, we almost didn't go into the "village" once we found out there was an admission charge. (Not being cheap, but remember that we really only wanted a brief break from driving). But we gave in... and were... More

Driven by this several times and finally decided to stop in. So glad we did. Plan to spend about 2 hours wandering around the various buildings in this still active town. The actual homestead and his birthplace are only open at certain times with a guide. Check before you get there so you can make sure you see these important... More

Shows how Plymouth notch was from his birth till his death. The house in only open for tours on the hour and there was quite a crowd so didn't go into it but there is plenty to see.

Though our first time in Vermont, friends we were with have been visiting this area for decades. We asked them about President Coolidge's home, but they were not aware of it. We all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Seeing the simplicity of a presidential home and enjoying the "small town" atmosphere of the surroundings was very interesting. Don't miss the the... More

Combination of a good museum and interesting buildings maintained as they were when Coolidge was growing up. You could do a quick walk around or easily spend a few hours seeing how simply Coolidge lived in this remote little community.
