This is Abraham Lincoln's son's summer home. The guides are pleasant and seem very knowledgeable. I don't want to spoil your visit by telling you too much about what there is to see because part of our enjoyment was discovering the grounds without doing any...More
So much beauty and history here! Take a few moments to watch the video at the Oscar V Johnson Jr Visitor Center before touring the grounds of the Lincoln family summer home. With views like this you will never want to leave. So much history!

This property isn't cheap too tour but it is worth it. The home is restored beautifully both inside and out. The organ they play inside makes you feel like you stepped back in time. The back rooms that had artifacts of Abraham Lincoln were fascinating....More
The house is amazing, especially the organ pipes that go from the basement to the 2nd floor. Many rooms were roped off and for the money there should have been a guided tour. The one guide we saw was busy with other tourists so we...More

I’m not sure but based on answers below I don’t think it would be an issue - tables around the welcome area outside and also lots of trails where you could stop by a bench and sit and eat if you wanted to. You could always call them and ask. Being Vermont no one’s going to care much either way :)
