We had high hopes upon hearing about lunch or tea at the teahouse on grounds. The tea building was very beautiful and a contrast to the dark marble inside the house. We were disappointed to find that there was not table service. The sandwiches and salads were from a local shop and good but we had gone hoping for "high tea." The view however was very beautiful and the kids and grandma decided to relax at a table in the shade while grandpa and mom toured the house. Marble house was very dark and ornate. It was interesting to hear the stories of the children who lived in the house and to hear about the aspirations of Alma Vanderbilt.
