This was a great spot to visit, with lots of history, but what made the tour was our guide- ask for Diane, she has been there 19 years and was a master storyteller! It would be a great place to take anyone affiliated with the Girl Scouts- including little ones.

After a short wait, we took a brief tour. Our guide seemed knowledgeable but admitted that she didn't know answers to many questions. The house is very attractive and there are many fun facts to learn. The garden is very pretty, don't miss it . I wish the gift shop didn't stock so much junk. There are lots of scarves... More

We stopped for a visit with my daughter who's a girl scout (Cadette). It was interesting to see the house and hear about Juliette's life. However, we did not learn much about her life as the founder of Girl Scouts and some of the amazing things she did and accomplished with the girl scouts. Our guide seemed more excited in... More

This is a beautiful house, and the tour is fine. The history is great. We came from several hours away with a large troop, organized a great deal to come here, this was supposed to be the highlight of the trip. They offered a time filler by giving 16 girls a single sheet of paper then sent them out to... More

This tour is worth a visit. Lots of history and art by JGL. Tour guide (and staff) was very knowledgeable and friendly. It's a must visit for all Girl Scouts!!

What a great treat to see this wonderful house. I took my granddaughter and she just loved it. The house is filled with things from her life. The tour guide told some great stories, too.

This was a bucket list item for me. I have been a GS leader for ten years for my two girls' troops. My husband is also a GS. We enjoyed learning about how talented Juliette was. Our tour guide was a bit ditzy, but we did enjoy our visit.

Historic home full of information about Juliette..she is the founder of the Girl Scouts....original furnishings...paintings and sculpture that she did herself. 78% of the furnishings are original. Very nice commentary by our guide. She was also an artist. Really captures the history of the area.

The tour for girl scouts starts with a powerpoint presentation, reviewing all the things about Juliet Gordon Lowe that we tell them during troop meetings. We also tried on some of the clothes she would have worn in her time period, and they learned about some of the activities she would have done, how she would have lived without electricity,... More

Had to stop to get something for our granddaughter who is a girl scout, we weren't disappointed. We didn't go thru the house.
