I enjoyed the visit to the mansion house and the other buildings at this attraction. The view of Huntsville from the overlook alone is worth the trip up the mountain! The staff were helpful and responsive. The house was more of a self-tour (no guided tour), so be ready to read if you want to learn more about the house. I visited during a festival during off hours, so not all of the buildings were open. I went on one of the trails for a short distance (did not have much time to hike). The trail was steep, but it was a good one to do.

Beautiful buildings, interesting history, and wonderful views. Nice and cool day with a slight breeze up in nature before the leaves started to turn.

Enjoyed my time walking the grounds, especially the historic homes and church. Also enjoyed hiking the trail on the way in to the beautiful large cross in the meadow.

This is a great park to take in nature. You can see all of Huntsville from the top of the hill. There are even several scavenger hunts you can do with kids. The exhibit on the Scottsboro boys was very informative.

Arrived and had plenty of parking. At first I thought the $10 per person charge was to much. Could not view all of the Doctor’s house due to water damage and COVID 19 concerns. And there were only a few remnants of the Doctor’s existence present inside of the house. This was due to a fire which destroyed the first house.
Did enjoy talking with the interns working the village as they were knowledgeable, dressed in era clothing and helped us better understand the life and times of those settlers.
Well done for saving the day! Overall I would have rated this location higher had some of the areas not been closed down.
Enjoy you visit!

A great find for a quick day activity on a Saturday afternoon. A great view of Hunstvillle and interesting history. The house was quite nice and kept well in Historic condition. The self guided tour through suffrage history was quite informative. Looking at all the original historic homes relocated from all over Alabama gave a new perspective on how families lived in the 1800s. A must see activity when in Huntsville.

The Pioneer Village was wonderful! The view is amazing. It's so peaceful and serene. There are folks in period dress in the cabins performing jobs such as cooking or blacksmithing who take time to show you what they are doing and explain the process. They know about the cabins themselves as well. Friendly and patient with questions. Plus the staff in the Gift Shop are obliging and go out of their way to make things pretty for gift giving. The actual Burritt Mansion was a little disappointing. A lot of the furnishings have been removed except for a parlor you cannot enter and the Dining Room. Most of the dishes are on display though. You certainly can't beat the price though.

I enjoyed this stop. There is free parking and cheap admission to see the grounds, historic village, and mansion. There were a few docents in period garb in the historic village talking about the provenance of the buildings that were moved and reassembled to the site including: a school, some dog trot houses, and a barn. They do demonstrations at various times during the week for a myriad of activities. The Mansion was magnificent with an awe inspiring view of Huntsville from the top of the mountain. You can only tour the first floor, but it is a wonderful self guided tour. There is a docent there to answer questions and provide additional information.

The whole experience was worth the $12 I paid to get in. The people working in the gift shop/welcome center were VERY friendly. The lady in the mansion was very loquacious and didn't mind answering all of my questions. Everyone we encountered was friendly, knowledgeable and friendly. It was a very laid back experience. I LOVE places like this and HATE that I have lived 60 miles (or less) for 25+ years and didn't know it existed. Everyone should GO
