While large for it's time, the house is small as a destination and you can only see the inside on a tour, so call ahead for the times. We were lucky and joined a tour that had just started. We're not big tour people and usually prefer to go at our own pace through museums and historic sites, but our tour guide Toby was fantastic - young, energetic, funny and incredibly knowledgable. Grounds were small but lovely with beautiful foliage to rustle around in while checking out the large art installations and views of Mt. Greylock. We didn't have time for the nature trail, but was easy to find and looked like a nice walk, weather permitting.
