This beautiful old home is slowly being repaired by Juan. There's still much work to be done but he seems to have such a passion for restoring it to it's original grandeur. I would love to return in a few years to see his progress

The house is just amazingly beautiful. Original Tiffany lighting, incredible woodwork. The new owners are doing a great job getting this house back to original. The tour guide was very good. One of the owners was working the front desk and was very friendly. Take this tour you won't regret it.

Would love to come back in a few years when the have the roof top view and the basement restored.

Tour was great. Both ladies giving the tour really knew the house. They answered all of our questions in detail. The house was in very good condition top to bottom. Most of the furniture was original to the house.

The story behind this mansion is as interesting as the building itself. How wonderful to know that it is being restored to its former glory!

We stayed at the Rockville Mansion last night, and it was delightful! The owner, Juan, was very helpful, and allowed us to look around the mansion. We were met with wine, cheese and fruit. Then in the morning Juan cooked a wonderful breakfast, taking into consideration our food allergies. The room we stayed in was beautiful. The bed was a bit small, as it is an original piece to the home, but it was very comfortable. The window air conditioner cooled the room beautifully. The attached bath was a vintage wonder - we had so much fun! It was quite the adventure, and we would definitely stay again.
