Very good tour however we took this tour after touring the Breakers. The Breakers set the bar very high.

The Servants Tour is a must see when visiting The Elms! The “cottage” is spectacular and the grounds are beautiful but the Servants tour was amazing! Our guide Owen was fantastic and so knowledgeable and personable!! Everyone was so pleasant!!

We visited the elms and topiary gardens in the same day. The self guided audio tour is about 45 minutes, though there's lots more information if you want to spend more time in a particular room. We came on a drizzly Friday afternoon and had the place mostly to ourselves!

Magnificent decor. Architecture is breath taking. When you have a lot of money, spend it wisely. These people did and you can appreciate the beauty of it all. Many details stand out as you enter each room.

Amazing! Our guide was wonderful and it was such fun seeing how a house was run during that time period. It was not only about the "help" but all the mechanics such as heat, water etc. as well.
