I enjoyed Reynolda even more than Biltmore House (which I visited the same week). Possibly because Biltmore House was packed to the gills with people and one felt as if one in a cattle shute being moved along. But also because I like being able to wander around a look at things slowly. Reynolda House can be viewed at your own pace. The signage is wonderful. I really felt like I had walked back in history to the early 1900s. The basement was especially fun: what wild parties those guys must have had down there, rollerskating from the bowling alley to the shooting range to the bar to the pool! The gardens were beautiful, even in the winter. While not a huge fan of modern art, I did tour the exhibit in the newer art gallery that is attached to the historic house. Also fun is visiting the Reynolda Village for lunch and for shopping.
