This was a great stop for us on our visit. We were in town on a cold weekend and Blackpoint was the a perfect stop. Historical and traditional in many ways. It was a very interesting to visit.

Beautifully preserved original stuff from the house. It was cool to go over on a boat and then see the house. I would definitely do it again and i've done this two times now.

This was a great place to visit. Amazing to see things the way they were when the mansion was being used and hear all the stories of the family.
