We recently spent 3 weeks in Woodstock, Vermont. We toured the Marsh- Billings - Rockefeller Farm and Museum and found it extremely informative and very beautiful. The Park Service tour of the Mansion was great. The guide was very knowledgable and entertaining. Hiking in the park is absolutely fantastic. Be sure to make it to the Pogue. If you are... More

The movie about the history is the same one which is shown at Billings Farm. We took the 45 minute tour which went into a lot of detail....a bit more detail than I wanted, but it gets you into the house. Walking the grounds may be enough, but the house tour is worth it if that interests you. The grounds... More

I enjoyed the tour from Ranger Marie. French accent was fun. Very informative. She made the tour fun by including the kids on the tour. Beautiful mansion. Small by Rockefeller standards. Grounds are gorgeous. Great views. Bring a picnic and sit on the rocking chairs on the porch.

I gave the park 4 stars, instead of 5 only because you enter the park without any idea of how the entire park looks like... My boyfriend and I just hiked up a healthy-length up a hill and then finally came across a beautiful lake and meadows. If the entrance had more of an indication of what kind of park... More

This mansion is a most worthwhile, unique National Historical Park site. Dylan's most engaging personality, impressive fund of knowledge and well-delivered presentation maintained my interest throughout the tour. I have been on numerous National Park tours in all USA time zones, including Hawaii and his tour ranks as one of the best. We will definitely return while visiting from Massachusetts.

Great movie (Academy Award nominee) about 3 important conservationists introduces the fascinating and gorgeous homes. The working farm is great fun for all. And we wish we had more time for an amazingly well done display of life in Vermont.

The farm tour was ok for small kids but it was nothing special to be a national park. It wasn't much better that any local farm experience in PA or NJ.

The National Park portion of the site is well maintained and offers a reasonable priced house tour. Dylan, one of the tour guides, shows great energy when explaining how the 3 families are tied into what is shown today. The house is only shown with a guide while the miles of trails and outdoor gardens are available anytime. Be sure... More

There is great hiking, kids activities, and a mansion tour all at this National Park. The price to tour the home is reasonable and there is a discount for annual pass holders.

Visit an exquisite historic house, walk trails through the woods and work your way upward to a scenic overlook. Within walking distance of town.
