Excellent tour guide provided detailed information about the house and its owners. The staff was very accommodating to a member in our party who used a walker. It was pouring when we exited the house, so we did not see the gardens.

A friend and I visited the house and traditional farm. The house was formal with a mandatory guided tour and the farm was relaxed and do-it-yourself with a self guiding map. Excellent combination. Docents provided helpful information about the different structures and history of the...More
