We spend a month every year in this area and often take Ranger guided walks both in historic properties and at local beaches and other natural areas. The National Seashore is a real treasure to explore and enjoy.

Amazing historic home, only wish we had visited on a day when the home was open to the public. While visiting in the off season has it's perks, it can make getting to attractions when they are open challenging. We walked around the house and on the surrounding trails. I would definitely recommend visiting when it's open!

Walked through open house after hiking fort hill trails. Worth the wait for open house! Restoration has gone well! Rangers are super nice and able t answer questions. Truly spectacular architecture. So glad we got in!

The whalebone entrance to the home is worth the visit alone! The house also has neat architecture, but check to see when it is open for visiting. There apparently is no furniture inside, but there are photos in the downstairs rooms so tours should be available at some point.

It was very interesting! I loved the story. They were painting the outside and it was beautiful. You could imagine the captain coming home from sea.....
