Tried to visit and tour the mansion on a Monday but it was closed so we walked the trails around the property and visited the gardens. It was very enjoyable but I really wanted to see the inside! Next trip I will plan accordingly.

I attended a wedding here just last weekend. The place is gorgeous and such an idyllic setting for the event. My only caveats are that the restrooms are located near the parking lot, while the wedding venue and reception were a little farther away - because the estate is gardens and landscaping it was not very ADA-friendly. My mom who... More

We missed the last house tour by 6 min but really enjoyed walking the grounds. Very peaceful and even though it was too early in the season for much to be in bloom it was a wonderful experience. I was very happy the City of Salem allows free access to the paths and grounds. An unlocked bathroom would have been... More

If you're in Salem this is definitely worth a visit. We did the regular tour, which takes an hour and is very informative, but they offer a number of other fun events like a tea. The tour guide was top notch and patiently answered all of our questions. The gardens are dormant in February but I'm sure they would be... More

Go at a non-busy time before lunch. We felt we got a private tour at a leisurely pace with our many questions answered. Must be nice to have money! I am so glad the estate preserved this elegant and well-maintained home. It is heavily used for receptions and weddings. The antiques are behind glass but replica period furnishing allow tourists...

Deepwood is well worth a visit if you are coming to Salem. It's location, while not downtown precisely, is close enough that one can certainly walk. And there is ample parking as well. Additionally, it is adjacent to Bush's Pasture Park and the Bush House, so these activities can be easily combined. A tour of the beautiful Victorian mansion is... More

Great spot if you like lovely gardens and historic homes. There's no cost to walk the gardens and nature trail. There is a small cost for a tour of the home which was well worth it. See their web site for special events. The house can be rented for parties and other events.

Historic beautiful home, have taken the tour couple of times, its just lovely. During the tour, you will receive information of life during the time the house was built. The gardens are wonderful, take a deep breath and enjoy.
