Worth the stop. Next time I need to stay at the Inn and see the main house. Very impressive. Just wish we had places like this at home. The grounds are as green as ever and perfectly taken care of.

Take the tours---your experience is enhanced by the knowledgeable staff! We enjoyed Ticonderoga, apothecary/general store, Monet, Degas and other original art in the re-created Webb apartment.

We recently went and walked around the grounds and really enjoyed it. The other parts of the farm were not yet open but we still enjoyed our visit. The cheese made there is really delicious too.

We enjoyed our tour of the property and the historic horse barn. The property is expansive and beautiful. The Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese is so delicious. We ended the day shopping at the Farm Store. The property is expansive and so beautiful.

Historic barns and guest house is remarkable, family-friendly place with animals for children, bakery, lots of walking if desired, fabulous drive-by views if you prefer the car. I go often and take all visitors. Food at the Guest House is also wonderful.

What you may have meant to say is that you have nothing negative to say. I couldn't agree more. My only regret was not staying for lunch.
