While we visited the park and mansion before, this time we got a guided tour of the fall-out shelter built under the bowling alley by the Rockefellers during the Cuban missile crisis. Quite an interesting and intriguing part of recent history. We also visited to ground floor of the mansion obtaining information from very competent and knowledgeable rangers, a volunteer... More

This mansion has so many beautiful pieces of art, beautiful wood carvings , furniture and so much more. The grounds and gardens are amazing. But what we loved most was hearing about the 3 amazing owners of this beautiful home and how there lives changed the United State's forever. Well worth going to see this lovely home.

We would love to come back in the fall and enjoy walking these beautiful grounds! Do take the mansion tour, very informative, and the art/woodwork/details inside are beautiful. The tours are by reservation only and are limited to 12 people per tour.

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NPS is beautifully situated. The staff is friendly & friendly. The town of Woodstock, VT is gorgeous. The town is pure Vermont charm. Make sure you catch some covered bridges.

The National Park Service runs this large, beautiful area just north of Woodstock. The mansion has a two hundred year history about the 3 families who lived there. Guided tours of the mansion cost $8 for adults and $4 for seniors. There are also lovely gadens, pool and pool house. In addition there are many trails around this very large... More

Ranger Marie was a very knowledgable and personable tour guide. We were fortunate to be in the area when they offered the Hidden Spaces tour which... More

We actually had Connie, a relative, who spent summers at her grandmother's house, Rockefeller House, with us on the tour. The park ranger gave a very interesting tour but we were able to ask Connie questions. We got some of the real feel for... More
