Unbelievable architecture, craftsmanship, size, and a chance to see what unlimited money can buy. The owners moved out after a few years and lived in a one story 3000 sq. ft. house nearby as the mansion was cold and way too much for their lives.

Beautiful grounds and informative staff. I enjoyed walking around the grounds and exploring the rooms of the mansion. I’ll be back to do some more exploring of the other floors!

We did the self guided tour and enjoyed it a lot. Docents were present throughout to answer questions.It took us 2 hrs but I tend to look at the art a little long. Also, the Knoll cottage in back was open.

This is really an old mansion of the Dodge family. It is gorgeous inside. It is also the setting for at least one movie. So much beautiful wood in this house.
