After about 15 minutes of us sitting and having a sandwich one of the staff comes over and rudely tells us that we should have first go up and pay the admission fee... More

We spent a morning here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were a little surprised how few people locally seemed aware of it though. The first receptionist we asked at our hotel had not heard of it although another was very enthusiastic about it. The taxi driver told us he'd been a taxi driver 31 years and we were the first...

It's early owners were the beloved Choate family and their influence and contributions are well worth hearing. We visited in the Fall and were not able to take in the full effect of the grounds and gardens, but one can tell that they were... More

The day we visited we originally had other plans but my husband got some poison ivy on his hands. We needed something to do that wasn't too far from us (as husband thinks he needs to give me driving advice) and that didn't require husband to use hands. After consulting trip advisor, we decided to give it a try. The... More

Such lovely views and unexpected finds at the end of walkways. The Linden tree lined walk, the Blue Steps and the Chinese Garden were just remarkable. The vision and caring that went into the original design and recent restorations have resulted in an estate of great beauty and delight. We actually walked there from the center of town and then...

The gardens are beautiful and the "cottage" is one that you could find yourself living in quite comfortably. Check the website for tour times. The tour lasts about an hour.
