  • We visited recently and enjoyed it. Interesting history of the house and its inhabitants. Simple floor plan with some original furnishings. Some great views and a few amusing sculptures in the yard. 
  • Sunday Petanque 1 to 5, bring wine and cheese and you will fit right in
  • Top notch historical site and park. I love the views and I love the ambience.
  • Lovely on a cool day, but if it's hot at all it can be miserable. A great place to attend local events as well.
  • Scenic outdoor event venue. If you're using it for a state government event, they waive the rental fees--perfect for a day of team-building. Note that the only indoor rental space is the carriage house loft which could be used for a bridal dressing room or a ceremony for 30-40 guests. You may need to rent a porta potty for more than 100 guests. They're also strict on the 11:00pm close out so plan accordingly or lose your deposit.
  • Intersting history found in this factilty. Fun for the kids and entire family. Will definatley come back and vistin again.
