We stopped here after visiting Mt Scott and it was really pretty! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She gave us the option of letting us go through on our own, or giving us the guided tour.

The docent was delightful and informative. Being able to walk through the rooms instead of looking over a roped off area was a wonderful treat. My 11 year old son even enjoyed the tour and the history of the house and the former inhabitants.
