They have an amazing botanical garden hidden in a lower level of the mansion. There was a wedding setting up Saturday so we didnt stay long but it was beautiful to walk through. Great views and they have tours of the House itself.

Went to an antique sale at the house for a local charity. Wide variety of items made for a fun shopping experience. The event was held in the house so had plenty of opportunity to explore inside the house and also walk the grounds. A lovely place to visit.

There was a children party there but we could admire the house from outside and enjoy the quietness of the garden which is some steps down the hill. I recomend spending some time in the garden especially that there are few visitor around....

Doctor Plummer was a man of many abilities....Designer, Medical Doctor, Architect of homes and buildings, Planner of Medical Equipment for Mayo Clinic, and again, I say...Medical Doctor!

We didn't know it but tours are only available on Wednesday. We went on Thursday. The grounds are incredible enough to give 5 stars but we would have LOVED to see the inside of the house.
