This property is maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. The historic house is interesting. The formal gardens are very attractive. There are well maintained woodland trails that provide easy walking. Insect repellent is recommended. There are restrooms. Worth a detour, but not a journey.

This place is amazing. It's kept in a colonial theme with very spacious rooms for any type of function.The grounds are kept up and offer a great location for photos. Added bonus plenty of parking and access to 128, 95, and the Boston skyline.
