There was a private activity going on when we visited the castle, so we didn't tour the inside. Took lots of pictures of the outside, the grounds and the structures on the property are simple spectacular. A beautiful piece of architecture.

Staff was really friendly and knowledgeable. Always enjoy when they share personal stories about family/history of the building. Tour allows you to see the majority of the castle

We were so excited this was open as part of a holiday tour since it's only open 1 or 2 weekends a month, and we weren't there on the right weekend so make sure to check their website before going. Beautiful woodwork and interesting story.
