The house is very interesting and it gives a peek into the lives of (primarily) the Billings family. It's a look back into an earlier century, as many of the items were never changed. There's also a lovely garden. There's a video associated with the property. It would be great if this was available online so that visitors could watch... More

Wonderful set of carriage paths and smaller forest footpaths. Recommend the North Ridge Loop, a gentle walk around the Pogue, and for fitter hikers, Precipice Trail up to the South Peak of Mt. Tom. We loved our afternoon there.

Watched the free 30 min video which puts the location into context and should be viewed. Hiked to the top of Mt. Tom via the Precipice Trail; about 30 mins and requires some minimal fitness. Not ideal for very young kids as there are parts with minor drops with only a single cable running along side to protect you from... More

We visited the Rockefeller Home and Gardens in Woodstock. The guide was knowledgeable and gave us insights into the private life of the Rockefellers,plus the history of this house and the Marsh-Billings Farm. The gardens and the entire Mt. Tom area have been preserved thanks to the foresight of the original founders. The film shown was excellent and provided a... More

Another user has mentioned this but its worth repeating again. The directions on Google sent me to the other end of the park several miles away. Just go by the address and get directions. DO NOT LOOKUP THE SITE BY NAME ON GOOGLE MAPS. The place has plenty to offer for the curious mind.

The museum is OK. There is a tiny garden near the house and a trail. Some objects inside the house are nice: staircase, wallpaper. However if you have been in Europe, this museum would not be interesting for you.

First, Google Maps will take you to a trailhead at the furthest most boundary of the park from the visitor's center. Use the directions on the NPS website to get to the visitor's center. This is the voice of experience. There are 2 parts to the site: the land and everything to the front door of the mansion is free... More

I've visited the Queechee/Woodstock area before but just learned about this "hidden" gem on a recent visit. I say hidden because it's just not a well-known landmark or national park for that matter. My daughter and I toured both the mansion and the farmhouse. The mansion is exquisitely appointed and left just as it was when it was left to... More

Although we did not walk the trails, we found the home tour to be a good one. The garden was pretty and very well maintained, as was the house and furnishings. The park ranger who gave the tour was obviously very interested in the subject. He, the film and exhibits very much heightened our understanding of the way people have... More

Great to learn about the family history of the Marshes, Billingses, and Rockefellers. The ranger was a fantastic tour guide. The house is amazingly maintained with really interesting stories over the years. Interesting to learn about all three families and their commitments and legacies to the environment and conservation.
