Needed to fill some time and took my kids (ages 7,9 and 11). First, the mansion- beautiful, tour guide was engaging to the kids, kept then interacting with the tour...huge plus for me! The price for the tour and carriage museum was adequately priced ($10 adult, $5 kids...active military free). The house was beautifully maintained inside and out. Next, we enjoyed a picnic in the gardens. The flowers were well cared for and the reflection pond was a relaxing background. The grounds were well maintained. Make sure to walk down the grass paths to see hidden flower gardens throughout. There is a carriage museum with well maintained carriages...lots of history here. Went to see the civil war camp and found 3 hiking trails! We did not hike them only because of time...but plan to return. The grounds and Trails are free to hike.
All in all, this place was a wonderful find and will return many times in the future!
