lovely manor and worth taking a look. inside it has been beautifully restored and it needs time to see all the hand carved furniture and the decor. there is a room where you can sample local wines and vodkas ( for a fee ) there is even a room where you can see yourself dressed up in period costumes. there is a mock up body with a a period costume and you just stand behind so only your head is in sight ( there are lots of hats also to put on ) a bit of fun. the gardens are nice and there is a hot house with tropical plants and birds in cages. a little lake is behind the manor and i think you can hire boats out to paddle round. you can get a buggy ride and we were given a display of this with expert horsemanship. across the road in the car park there is a small shop where you can get snacks/drinks etc. look on top of the chimney and see the huge stock nest.

This was lovely. We arrived early. We had a quick but informative tour of the house, and then were able to wander through again and then wander round the lovely gardens. Worth a visit definitely.

Worth a stop. Nicely restored German manor house recalling the mid-19th century. Grounds and gardens offer some pleasant walking areas. There is also a very nice tasting room in the basement offering samples of local wines and vodkas.

One of the beautiful - restored - manors in the Lahemaa National Park.
I didn't visit the manor inside, but had a walk in the lovely garden with a pond, a few follies and a greenhouse (free to visit)
It is a big estate, besides the manor and gardens, there is also a hotel, a restaurant, the Lahemaa NP tourist information centre and a small supermarket next to the car park.

We were advised to start our tour of the Lahemaa Park here because it was central and well sign posted off the main highway. What were not told is that there is a very good visitor centre here with many exhibits and a very informative video lasting about 15-20 minutes on a loop. Do go here to tour with a better insight into the history of Lahemaa.

The House itself is set in the best kept park of the tour we did with a nice lake which in good weather makes for fine photography. Parking is easy. We added the coast at Altja to our tour based on advice here and it was lovely.

We visited the manor after having visited a few others and this was the best maintained and we had a guided tour for free and wine tasting in the cellar. I am sure it is even more spectacular in the summer, but we enjoyed it. Very interesting signs around the building explaining the history.

This manor is heavily restored. It is quite elegant and photogenic. Entry is quite pricey. The manor house itself is quite modest but with some interesting features. The National Park has an information centre located in the stable block. Lots of external buildings to explore. Sadly the distillary is now a hotel. There was no catering available on site when we visited, not even coffee, despite there being many visitors.

Very well preserved and renovated manor with great exhibition, production buildings and park, that gives understanding, how nobles lived and how manors operated. The one of the last owners was very interesting lady, who was a friend of philosopher Nitsche and czar Nikolay II. It is worthwhile to visit this manor and to spend as much time as you can devote.

A bit expensive, but if you are interested about history and gardens, this is your stop to visit. And the small road is worth to drive - even without a motorbike.

Enjoyed this lovely manor house and the grounds. Rich in history and full of charm. Horse and buggy rides were being offered and quite popular with the younger guests on the property.
