This is a beautiful park in an absolutely breath-taking location. We missed the house tour by just a few minutes, but will be back for that. This is a peaceful place not too far from the bustling nation's capitol!

The park is gorgeous! The grounds are well kept and immaculate. The hiking trails were gorgeous and the buildings well maintained. The Mansion tour was HOT, way too hot....maybe turn down the heat just a tad!
