We had a disadvantage in that the weather was not conducive to a casual open air visit the day we went. The skies opened up several times and we ran from one place to another, but in spite of that disadvantage, we love to visit the farm every time we are in the area. We were with friends to whom we introduced the beautiful farm and in spite of the terrible weather, they too, will look forward to returning

We stopped here on our annual national parks trip- this time to the East Coast. We always buy the national parks recreation passport which allows you to get into all of the national parks for a full year for one price. If you are visiting multiple national parks you should look into it because it will save you money, often paying for itself after only two or three stops.

We stopped here because it was on our way to Acadia National Park- we arrived later in the day and because we got lost finding the park were only able to spend about an hour here so I cant comment on the home tour because we were not able to go on it. They do have a nice farm set up that is a working farm and a nice little gift shop. We walked up to the grounds the house is on and it was beautiful- very pretty. I would stop if this is on your way but probably wouldn’t go out of my way to visit just this but again we missed the last tour for the house so we weren’t able to go inside. Parking for campers is back off the street and there is no special parking for just campers so we had to make a spot for us but it worked out fine. Getting out of Woodstock on the way towards Acadia was complicated because of the narrow and one way streets so be sure to give yourself time.

We toured the Laurance Rockefeller home, which is part of this historical park. The home was turned over to the State of Vermont, and includes all the furniture and personal effects of Mr. and Mrs. Rockefeller. There is a display area that explains the history of the area, and the environmental work of Mr. Rockefeller. The tour guide was quite young and needed a bit more training, but all in all, it was a very interesting site that I would recommend.

This national park is a great example of the important role they play in preserving our history and heritage. Once again, interesting history regarding the start of preservation work in our nation as well as the re-treeing of the denuded Vermont countryside. Come and learn about important people you heard of but knew nothing about.

Be aware that the entrance to the park is a little further past the address you use in your GPS and the parking lot for this park is an additional small distance past the park entrance (to the left).
