Perhaps that is a good thing - to want more - after a visit. Essentially 3 rooms of the house are open -- the kitchen is where you buy your tickets. There is a living room with a large fireplace and storyboards around the walls...More

Very disappointed to find that it was closed after we drove two hours to get there. No info on website to the contrary; it was supposed to be open. Don't go without making sure they are not closed.

We visited the Robert Frost house in early October. Normally the house is open Wednesday through Sunday, but in October, it is open every day. The house is now a museum, with some pieces of furniture and other items from Frost's time there. We especially...More

I didn't actually go INSIDE the house, but I did stop long enough to walk around the grounds and take some pictures. It is picturesque.

The museum was small, but interesting. The staff person at the desk, however, was so surly that it spoiled the visit, the only stop we made for pleasure on our trip. Everyone has bad days, perhaps that was it, but it was poor timing for...More

We felt they could have done more with the house to make it more exciting but there is a lot of great history about Robert Frost and his works. Some nice memorabilia. Very reasonably priced. We did have a nice picnic on the grounds.

I went in thinking I would learn a little about him even though I am not a fan. I just wanted to know when and why he lived in the house and for how long. Why did he move? Did he raise his family there?...More

The grounds and buildings on the property are lovely, though there is no interpretation whatsoever, and the garden area was quite unkempt the day we visited. For $6.00 you take a "self-guided" tour of just two rooms. Each had walls covered with small photos and...More
