“Nice Place with No Crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Went here with bicycles and really enjoyed the easy way to tour the property. The adjoining Equestrian center property added some more trails to ride around and also added to the unique atmoshere we found. Beautiful gardens and lovely old buildings to wander around. Best thing was the place was empty on a Sunday afternoon giving it a sense of remoteness. We drove over the a winery afterwards and finished off the day.

“Downton Abbey like afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

For history enthusiasts, it's well worth a visit to learn about the Westmorelands. The cost of the tour is quite reasonable and the real treat is being up close to the room furnishings. You're not kept behind a velvet rope. The carriage house tour is self guided but a fun diversion. Walking the grounds on a springlike day is a relaxing and lazy way to spend an afternoon. Probably not interesting for kids or teens.

“Spend a couple of hours here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Well worth visiting- great interactive tour and the place was fabulous. The price for the tour was reasonable ($4-6 each) and the guide was knowledgable and the rooms were fascinating- an original GE fridge, cherry splitter etc.
