The Park, Farm and mansion are a must-see if in the area - the only national park site with its primary focus on environmental stewardship. The rangers were terrific, excellent at accommodating people with disabilities and sharing their love of the park and nature.

Truly a beautiful house with an amazing story. Our guide was a historian, naturalist and environmentalist who was expert in explaining the story of the house and families. The tour is so well worth the time.

We toured the house first, then we went for lunch and came back and toured the farm and the old farmhouse. It was all very interesting and we highly recommend.

Pets on leashes, always a plus. Lovely trails to walk. Some trails are closed due to logging but overall there are plenty of other trails. We just happen to run across it while looking for a spot to walk our dogs and it was a really good spot.

The National Park Service has done a masterful job keeping this property in good repair and its 200 years of history are very much on display. Start with the Billings Farm across the road, watch the video either at the Mansion or at the Farm (same video), and enjoy the extent to which enlightened stewardship of the local environment can...

Living in the Upper Valley, this is a favorite place to bring visitors. Friends and family all enjoy the lovely grounds and the visitor center. The house is interesting too to see where Laurence Rockefeller once lived.

A small, but beautiful, national historic park that is worth seeing. The ranger who took us on the one-hour tour of the Marsh - Billings home was incredibly knowledgeable. We skipped the Billings Farm down the road on the advice of friends and concentrated on the Marsh - Billings National Park instead and glad we did.

Within the picture-postcard village of Woodstock is the beautiful 14,000 sf mansion of Laurence Rockefeller – now part of the 550 acre Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park, those 3 families being the prior owners of the house. Donated during the lifetime of Laurence. Tour begins with a very well done movie (nominated for an Academy Award) about the early history of international... More
