  • An interesting home from a prominent family of the 18th century. It has been restored nicely and the interior is fully furnished. You also tour a smaller house built for the tenant who ran the ferry. ...  more »
  • The house and grounds are well worth the trip. The furniture and accessories are likewise. However, a tour guide can be the icing on the cake. In this case, Tom, dressed in period clothing, and loving...  more »

  • This is a great place when they have one of their very popular events. They have two major events annually. First is the lightshow where they showcase a wonderful massive number of lights across the field, beautifully designed and put. They decorate trees and the building and everything there. The other event is their best which is called "Blaze" and in that they have a similar set but with jack o lanterns. Thousands and thousands of real pumpkins carved amazingly and combined into massive structures. Just amazing. Both events last for more than a month. Driving there is kind of painful because it's very far from the city (NYC). Parking is free if you have tickets. Going there by train is possible but from the station to the place is a very odd walk on the highway, or you can take one of those "cabs" at the station.
  • Amazing place no matter what time of year you go. It always seem like there is something going on.
  • Very nice grounds. Great place for photos. Lots of local history. Plenty of parking
  • Came for The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze. And the event itself was pretty cool, it ran smoothly, the workers were very nice and polite. I would only recommend that maybe they have some lights on the walking path. But the place was excellent and I will be back next year for sure!
  • I purchased tickets for a Sunday evening(830PM) in October and later decided I would rather go on a Thursday at an earlier time due to the age of my 2 children(4 & 2). I called customer service a few days after the original purchase and they told me the only thing i could do was buy new tickets, so I would be stuck with the original set of tickets. I would like to give this more stars because we have been there before and enjoyed it but due to the popularity it seems that the employees do not care about the customer much. After my conversation with the customer service representative this morning i am now under the impression that it is all about money to these people. This is the last year I will be attending this event and no longer will I recommend any friends or family members to go.
