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.

After we visited most of the historical estates in midwest and US this one stands out by its beauty, unique sculptural features around the house and wonderful park. Tour of the house was also excellent. Thank you for keeping up this treasure for posterity.
