Arrived to find a note on the door stating that they were closed for the season. Hopefully, the dates of service will be added to their website for future visitors.

The interior features gorgeous crown moldings in various woods, rich reproduction wall coverings and period furnishings (not original to the home, but authentic to the period). The tour was a great value and the guides pleasant. The gardens are just beautiful.

Enjoyed this house very much and everyone on staff was smiling and helpful. They went out their way to make you feel welcome. Never been in a house quite like this - upstairs is COOL.

Wheelchair accessible and great museum. The old things on display were very interesting. The lighting was very good in order to view everything. We didn't feel rushed.

We drove around looking for the house, but it was not easily accessible nor did not appear to be open. I was a bit disappointed.
