We found the tour very informational, the grounds well kept and the atmosphere beautiful. The guided tour was excellent and the tour guide very knowledgable. The movie is worth seeing as well.

A nice tour and short film included. A fine example of how a local group can save an historic home for future generations to enjoy.
