Worth the stop. Next time I need to stay at the Inn and see the main house. Very impressive. Just wish we had places like this at home. The grounds are as green as ever and perfectly taken care of.

Take the tours---your experience is enhanced by the knowledgeable staff! We enjoyed Ticonderoga, apothecary/general store, Monet, Degas and other original art in the re-created Webb apartment.

We recently went and walked around the grounds and really enjoyed it. The other parts of the farm were not yet open but we still enjoyed our visit. The cheese made there is really delicious too.
