We took the boat tour to get there and it was worth it. The tour guide held our interest with the stories about the family. A beautiful walk back in time.

We took the boat tour and Black Point Estate tour in the fall. The colors of the trees were amazing but the estate tour was a bit long. Nice to see and do but could have been shorter.

This was a great stop for us on our visit. We were in town on a cold weekend and Blackpoint was the a perfect stop. Historical and traditional in many ways. It was a very interesting to visit.

Beautifully preserved original stuff from the house. It was cool to go over on a boat and then see the house. I would definitely do it again and i've done this two times now.

It was like you were stepping back in time and it was amazing how well preserved all the furnishings are inside and outside.

Tickets about $35. They do provide a military discount. Purchase tickets online or at the dock in Lake Geneva.
