“"Beautiful Estate and Great Photo Ops"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Been to many of these Estates, and this one as great as the best of them. Like the self-guided tour, no one rushes you and pictures are allowed without a flash. Lots of beautiful photo ops or just to remember the great day.
