found the history of the home and its architecture interesting. The guide kept you engaged and showed pride in the information she was presenting. It was chilly the day I went so I didn't spend as much time on the grounds as I wanted. Hope to go back and explore more. Unplanned stop, when I arrived the tour had just... More

This is a beautiful park in an absolutely breath-taking location. We missed the house tour by just a few minutes, but will be back for that. This is a peaceful place not too far from the bustling nation's capitol!

The park is gorgeous! The grounds are well kept and immaculate. The hiking trails were gorgeous and the buildings well maintained. The Mansion tour was HOT, way too hot....maybe turn down the heat just a tad!

The views from this house are great. It is basically three museums in one. You have the house, a horseman's museum and carriage museum. All are very nice. The property could use a little upkeep and would be nice if the tour guides wore period attire, but the place is worth visiting.

We went as a family to visit the estate and were very happy that they refused to take our entrance fee as we were part of the military,andt gave us a tour guide to fill in all the gaps.
