  • Very interesting. Enjoyed it very much. My only complaint would be that it should be shown in only the era of Mr. Clark. There are way to many things that do not show this error. Very confusing.
  • This mansion is breath taking & the owners are very nice and hospitable. The only downfall is that its very cluttered. They have so much stuff everywhere you look that it takes away from the beauty and craftsmanship of the building. Also, I felt like the tour was a waist of time. Our tour guide didn't know any of the history of the house, she could only point out her favorite things, but our overnight stay was enjoyable.
  • Great history and the staff is happy to talk as long as the questions come! Good breakfast, comfortable beds, unique experience.
  • I live here...its...a place of great sanctuary...and it's tells us it was a gamechanger..how amazing to blessed with such monastery where we find that we trilybare the treasure of state...howevet it's not the sky that's larger than life here it's the school of once was...where the walls of every architecture measure against the vastlev..then who built America had to borrow from my neighbors ...please don't affect the modesty of the accepting town folk...they are families that have children and neighbors tolerance grit and anvearning butte is worth it's wait imagine existence and credibility...people are great here because they never pounce they are the only ones whose gold is not on the Capitola how modest...this wonderland is..beauty
  • Took a tour here and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Since it's an active BnB, the tour was a little more "hands-on" than other historic home tour: listened to old wax cylinders, sat in chairs, etc.
