“Tour Guide a little snippy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

The mansion was interesting, but the tour guide was very strict...not very happy or pleasant. I would like to take the tour again with a different guide.

“Loved the guided tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Another example of a smaller scale mansion with a great deal of history and beauty all of its own. Our tour guide was wonderful Nd insightful. The house itself was like a well kept secret- great beauty and architecture inside!

“Good guided tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

This property has a tour guided by a person which allows you to ask questions about the property. If you have already been to some of the other more famous houses this is a good next step visit.

“Guided Tour!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Although this mansion is not as grand as some of the others, It does have a very informative guided tour!! Was impressed with this 'house' because you can better relate to how things were back then. you can pull into the drive and really get a feel for the era. you have the time, after seeing the Breakers, Marble House, Elms. etc. go check out Chateau-sur-Mer. i think you would not be dissappointed
