Had a great experience touring with my family - Terry does an excellent tour, complete with opportunities to interact with the house and learn about the women who made this historic house home.

The house's extravagent features and decor are amazing, but I most loved hearing about Helen and Marion Seeyle. Terry's friendship with the elderly Seeyle ladies and his restoration of their home for the public to enjoy is an interesting story. I'm sure Helen and Marion would be very pleased with the excellent condition of the house and how many people... More

Spent a very very enjoyable afternoon with Terry. He made us feel very welcomed and very much at home. The tour and his knowledge of the history of the mansion was outstanding. I would highly recommend a visit.

We got here late but the gentleman let us join in the last tour and even spent a little time afterwords to show us the upstairs. He may have already shown it to the other people. He owns the home and wants to make you feel at home like he does while he's showing you his beautiful home. I didn't... More

Beautiful home - highly recommend. Landscaped beautifully. On the downside, Our tour was way too many people in the group! There had to be 25-30 people. Very hard to hear the guide at times and maneuver in the rooms. I am sad I failed to get a picture of the beautiful mansion on the outside.

My husband and I got married at the mansion last May and had a wonderful experience! The whole place is beautiful and the owner is very kind and has some very interesting stories to tell about the place. He is more than happy to take people along on tours and it is well worth the money and trip to get... More

This man always wanted this home, when it came available, he bought it. It came with the 2 sisters too. He said it was like having 2 more Grandmothers. He let us in the rooms, like we were just people visiting him. He learned so much from the 2 sisters, so you learned so much more about the house..It was... More

Beautiful home and garden with an exceptional tour. The owner took us around the house and showed us all the rooms and let us bowl in the basement bowling alley and also played the grand piano and organ. It was a fun adventure and the rooms are just as they were over 100 years ago. The owner is an excellent... More

We happened to pass this home on the way to the Eisenhower Library so we called to see if we could get in. We just made the last tour the day at 3:00. We walked out at 5:30, and someone told us they are usually 3 hour tours. Terry, the owner of the mansion, took us on the tour of... More
