House was beautiful. I was super disappointed we could not take pictures. We had visited two other homes that encouraged picture taking. I was hoping I could buy post cards or a picture book but the “gift shop” didn’t have much at all.More

An elegant home with an interesting history. Our docent was a very good guide and focused on the two principal families. It is understandable why it is so popular for weddings with the huge ballroom as the front room.

The docent was running late but kept our visit on track. One curious thing, they keep the door locked during a tour so then next visitors must wait outside hoping there's some one inside.Use the mansion as event space.
