  • There is a reasonable fee to get in. My wife and I were surprised that it was a self guided tour. This was actually a very pleasant way to tour the building as you could listen to the recordings and take the time that you wanted to look at the building. The only downside was that you are not allowed to take pictures inside.
  • We enjoyed the many interesting items that were displayed in the house. The self guided tours using a push button devise in each room gave us a lot of time to just look around at our own pace. The staff were very nice and answered all of our questions. Going there was recommended by a fellow tourist. The cost of $5.00 was very reasonable for us senior citizens.
  • The mansion is a spectacular sight. The size is deceiving from the exterior. Wish we could have booked the ghost tour. The surrounding park is beautiful! Perfect for fishing, boating, kayaking, or kite flying.
  • House was neat to visit, but the wine tasting was unacceptable. I went for my birthday, and paid $15 to taste wines from two wineries. The other places cancelled but the ticket was full price. It wasn't worth it. Disappointing birthday.
  • Worth the price of admission. Recommended.
