  • Enjoyable afternoon learning the history of the area and the family. The artifacts were displayed well and the hosts were knowledgeable.  more »
  • Even though the homes were closed, we toured the grounds by ourselves. Come and visit. There is a nice beach to swim and paddle board.  more »
  • Really nicely maintained and huge place to explore the history behind all those cute little houses. Amazed by the architecture and what each building was used for. If you have the time and willing to pay, join the tour to look at the inside of the main house because from the windows it's really hard to see the magnificence of the interior designs.
  • Kids had a blast. They offer some classes, my daughter did a cooking class for kids and loved it. Easy trails to walk around. Spots where you can get in the water.
