Our tour guide was knowledgable in explaining the background of the house, its style and the former resideints. The owners have done a good job in keeping the house in original style. The gardens are beautiful

We’ve had the good fortune of touring many houses across the US and parts of Europe. The history connected to this one - family handed it straight to a musuem - is truly unique. Staff were welcoming and the tour was well done - efficient, yet full of information.

Wonderful tour guide. Wonderfully kept home. Learned that pigeons were a staple. Ask about the famous tree out front!

I was at this house when it opened first thing on a Thursday morning in September. I was the only person waiting for a tour so Gloria gave me a private tour. She was very knowledgeable. The tour lasted about 1 hour and 15 minutes and I thoroughly enjoyed it very much. I toured a total of four historic houses in Portsmouth, plus Strawbery Banke and the Moffatt-Ladd house and garden was my favorite house and tour. If you are limited on time, I highly recommend touring this historic property.

I didn’t know what to expect when set out to tour this home but was pleasantly surprised by this home. The guides were so friendly and knowledgeable and were great about answering questions. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained by volunteers. A wedding was scheduled to take place later in the afternoon and a I couldn’t imagine a prettier venue. The view of the coastline from the home is wonderful as is the liberties the owner took with changing the original layout. The staircase is work of art and I love the symmetry from the outside. Definitely worth an hour to visit.
