“Must see!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Excellent tour of the Matilda Dodge-Wilson estate. AAA discount extended. Even my 16 year old son thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful narration by the knowledgeable docent. Tour lasts 1-1.5 hrs.

“Wonderful place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I have been there a few times both for tours and for other events. It is a magnificent place with beautiful gardens and grounds. The guides are very knowledgeable and helpful. Despite the luxury the place looks like Matilda Dodge Wilson enjoyed comfort more than extravagant furnishings. It was more of a home than Rose Terrace was. For those who are handicapped there is a small elevator to take you between the floors. Go near Christmas and there are very beautiful decorations up. There are lots of interesting events and talks that go on through the year so check their calendar and there is a Garden Club that takes care of the gardens there if you have an interest in doing something like that. They also put on events through the year.

“A little piece of American history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

I had the chance while on business to see this "house". The tour was nicely done (by Mary Ann and student Ann) and let us imagine what it was like in the late 1920's and years after. We were able to see most rooms and learn as we toured. It lasted about 1 hour and 20 min, which was perfect. They have a nice gift shop too! It was worth it!
