I've been lucky enough to visit a few times over the years, and I never get tired of it. I only wish I could take photos, but I understand in the view of preservation that this isn't possible. It's such a lovely house and so well taken care of now. My tour guides have all be friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable. Anyone interested history/architecture would enjoy a visit here.

I love learning about history, love buildings like this. The furniture and architecture was magnificent. They also told stories about how the residents spent their time and the etiquette of the time period. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn something new.

I love the way the house and estate are preserved. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and personable. I have been to the Estate several times. Loved the stories about Aunt Emilie. This house was part of my research about CM when I was writing one of my books. Gave me some valuable information.

The Estate is very interesting with a lot of great history related to Cape May. Paired with the trolley tour of Cape May it makes for a great visit. They also offer a fun event around Christmas time with Christmas caroling with Mrs. Claus on the trolley and carolers at the Estate.

Good tour, very interesting & not too long. If you like architecture and history, this can be something nice and different to do. The staff was also nice.
