I love the kid friendliness. It definitely is so much I wish we could have stayed 2 or 3 days but we will definitely be back.

You will need to arrive about 45 minutes before your tour. The grounds are quite extensive as well as beautiful. You will park and take a shuttle to the estate. The shuttles were there waiting. The Estate is gorgeous. We took the audio tour which took about 2 hours. It was very crowded and the crowds tended to create bottleneck in some of the rooms. If you were able to go through at your own pace it would be quicker. The rooms are gorgeous. I loved all the historical notes and learned so much. You can spend about a week exploring all of the property and taking various tours. It was well worth the money and I can't wait to go back to see more.

I can't imagine how much money it costs to maintain a property this large in today's prices. The House and grounds were perfectly maintained and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. This place will someday be of great historical significance. I'm glad to see it's in the right hands for our generation.
Well done!

Grounds were absolutely breath taking. Beautiful views of the mountains. Well planned self guided tour. Easy to get around.
