Great place to go for a hike, alone or with a group of kids! The only thing that keeps it from 5 stars is that there are no biking trails.

I am so glad that this old house and property was rescued and restored. What a loss for us had it not been. The more I learn about the history of Captain Issac Handy and his plantation, the more attracted I am to visiting here....More
