Very interesting.

This site has beautiful grounds and docents that will tell you about stuff and things. We couldn't go into the house because of covid regulations but I plan on going back when we can.

Beautiful historic house and grounds
Sep 2021 • Couples
Lifelong home of Gifford Pinchot, a great American conservationist and protector of the nation’s forests. Incredible collection of mature trees, beautiful vista to Milford and the hills beyond.

Self tour to beautiful and historic mansion.
Jul 2021
We visited this US Forest Service property this morning. The grounds opened at 9 AM and we passed the gate house to the winding wooded lane that ended at the visitor parking. After using the Visitor Pavilion’s clean restrooms, we walked up the garden path for views of the large Neo Norman “French Chateau,” finding the mansion tour closed.
We discovered the “Letterbox Theater” with its film on Gifford Pinchot’s life, various museum pieces on his fishing interests and featuring his wife’s legacy. We strolled the “Long Garden “ to the Bait Box before leaving.

Beautiful Historic Home and Grounds
May 2021 • Couples
We visited here in May, just as the spring flowers were coming up. The gates were closed so we had to walk up from the small parking lot at the bottom - we got our daily exercise! The mansion wasn’t open due to Covid restrictions, but there were signs throughout the ground explaining what you were seeing, as well as the history of the home and its occupants. It was a nice way to spend a few hours. We will definitely be back to see inside when it opens back up!

Thank you for visiting. Our gates are now open 7 days a week from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm. The mansion is not yet open for tours. However, we are hopeful that by the 4th of July weekend that will change.

Accidentally Stumbled Upon This Place
Oct 2020
We were trying to see Pinchot Falls but couldn't find the right trail to access it, so we toured the property here and it was lovely. Kids were a little bored so prob not for them,

Great place to visit.
Sep 2020
The property is wonderful. Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Even though the mansion tours were not available when we visited (restrictions of the times); there are other places to visit on site with films, family history, etc. You can easily spend a few hours at this beautiful place.

WONDERFUL PLACE TO VISIT! Very rewarding way to spend an afternoon.
Aug 2020
This is wonderful place to visit as the house is beautiful and a real time capsule of the early 20th century. The grounds are just stunning with some spectacular vistas. It is also very interesting to learn about Gifford Pinchot and the early years of the conservation movement in the United States as well as about the establishment of the U.S. Forestry Service. Forestry Service personnel on site are very pleasant and quite knowledgeable. This was a really pleasant find and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

Beautiful grounds
Jul 2020
The grounds to the estate are beautiful. There are a few trails to walk around. The building itself is currently closed, but am looking forward to returning once it's open. The staff outside is very helpful and said the mansion is worth visiting when decorated for Christmas.
