From reading reviews I didn't expect the day to run this long. We ended up spending about 3 hours at the house. Then there were incredible gardens and some family friendly areas with a petting zoo and playground. The property is sprawling and just driving from one area to another was beautiful. The wine tasting at the end was great... More

Nice shack. Was amazing to see the opulence and lifestyle the old railroad money could by. The building and grounds certainly rivals the grand estates of Europe. Audio tour was very interesting and worth the extra $11 to hear the history and the stories. Take a whole day for this if you also want to see the gardens, hike the... More

Went here with my wife and another couple. They seemed to enjoy it but I did not get much out of paying $60 to walk around an old house and then paying another $10 to hear audio about it. If this is your thing, you will probably love it, but not me. For me, it was capitalism at its worst... More

This is well worth the price of admission. -Since we had come all that way we rented the headsets too. Again, that was worth the cost. -The walk from the parking lot to the estate is super short. An easy walk for healthy 50 something year olds. -From the first person we talked with, the staffs Southern Charm shown through.... More

I've been here for Christmas (decorations) and during the spring (gardens). I love the house and gardens anytime. A must-see if you're in the area. Plan to go early to beat the crowds.

We didn't get to spend as much time here as I would've liked. I could've spent 2-3 hours just browsing the rooms with my audio tour. I was so surprised at how many rooms they allow you to go in. And I didn't expect to get to see the basement and all that was down there. We were rushed because... More

No air conditioning so be mindful and lot of walking. It is very interesting and all just not sure I would come back again but glad I seen it once. Bring money they're proud of their place. Very amazing place overall.
