If you love domestic architecture, this is a wonderful place to visit. The interpretation and self-guided tour are interesting with technology that's easy to use. The house is full of nooks and crannies, the kitchen stove is original. Unusual tiles of nursery rhymes are on the fireplaces and there are places to sit down and enjoy the ambiance of the house. Lovely grounds to explore.

WOW! Don't think of this as a typical "museum" where you walk around and look at artifacts-under-glass. This is similar to the Newport Mansion tours where you wander through the opulent interior of an original 1880's mansion. More like a walking-tour of Downton Abby. The guided tour provides detailed background stories of the original residents and their servants ... add a little of your imagination and you have a time-travel experience. Highly recommended but probably for teens or older.

We recently went as a family after Thanksgiving, and found that the Eustis Estate was a great place to spend a cold afternoon. The grounds are extensive and beautiful, with a great view of the Blue Hills and woods. Parking is free, though the estate requires a ticket to enter. The interior is very open, and most rooms can be walked through and examined in detail. One area in particular is the magnificent moon window, where you can look over the entryway - it's easy to imagine watching people showing up to a party from the window. The kitchen, lift, bathrooms, and dining area are all well maintained and restored. It's really a great way to spend an hour or two if you're into turn of the century estates.

Everything was well done. David Lincoln at the visitor center was welcoming and helpful. Heidi Graf our docent was an ideal guide: capable, enthusiastic, and seemingly omniscient. This is a Don't Miss attraction. Go on the guided tour if you can.

As new members of the New England Historical Society, the Eustis Estate was our first house to visit. SO worth the trip to see this beautiful property. The grounds were full of sculptures to view. We took a tour with Barbara, a wonderful guide. We enjoyed hearing the history and Barbara kept it so interesting. The house itself was just stunning. We look forward to many more visits come spring!
