It was my third visit to this place and I always strongly recommend it to all my friends who happen to be traveling Vermont. There is a lot of history to be learned, interesting facts to admire, like the issue with deforestation and Rockefeller's contribution to bringing back Woodstock area to it's former glory. The entire estate is so beautifully... More

This property is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. The home is well worth seeing as are the gardens and pool house. The tour guide knew her stuff though did seem to treat us visitors like school children on an outing. Lots of interesting facts about the history of this property and about Vermonts history of...

Haven't scratched a cow's chin in a long time! These cows seem to revel in attention; they come to the fence for scratchies and pets. We walked around and looked at the beautiful cows and fields, did not go to the barn, although had done so in a previous visit. We were charmed by the lovely lady at the ticket... More

Beautiful, and of course, extravagent Rockefeller mansion. Currently under renovations, but you can still see most of it. HOT-no air conditioning. Stairs. Interesting to see excessive decorating. Velvet rails on stairs-why?? Very pretty marble and art.

A must see...the film alone is eye opening. Take the one hour tour and learn about ecology prior it became a cocktail party talking point. Coupled with Kirkut in Tarrytown NY it paints a glowing picture of the grandchildren of JDR Sr. Not only was the site preserved and donated to our posterity but the Billings/Rockefeller family shaped the charater...

Visit was on a rainy day, but it did not matter..it was a great time for the whole family! We paid 8.00 for each adult, the kiddos were free. They were excited to do the tour as we learned about the area at the same time we learned about the woods around it. Our ranger was a new one, but... More

The house is gorgeous as well as the grounds. I loved the sculptures around the property. The garden was also beautiful. A nice hike up to a Pogue pond.

There are three components of the property: the mansion and gardens, the farm and museum, and finally the hiking and carriage trails. There are frequent tours of the mansion, a movie at both visitor centers, and numerous talks on a variety of topics. There is a fee to each property but you can purchase a combined ticket at a discounted... More

Visit was on a rainy day which limited the amount of hiking, but the ranger led tour of the house was a definite highlight. The history here was unexpected and seeing the house just as the Rockefellers left it in 1997 was a cool glimpse into how the "other half" lived. I'm sure this would not appeal to everyone, but...
