  • We (3 adults) went on Labor Day 2022. While most businesses were closed, this awesome place was open and we were the only ones there so they were very attentive to us. The employees were very welcoming. Our tour guide was personable and very knowledgeable about the history and the area. His father had also worked at the site, so he has been there since he was 11 and he knew a lot! He answered all of our questions and let us take our time looking at everything. We highly recommend this unique farm house tour for anyone interested in history, old houses, beautiful landscape, or poetry.
  • We weren't able to do a tour, but, I am interested enough to come back ๐Ÿ”™ again. The grounds are well maintained. A short easy loop โžฐ trail. The trail is not wheelchair accessible and I would recommend a rugged stroller. In the spring or summer, you may need bug spray. Poetry and information โ„น๏ธ posted along the trail. What we saw of the inside of the barn was limited. Their is history posted. Small gift shop with maple ๐Ÿ syrup for sale. Bathroom is "Whatever", another word for unisex. Picnic ๐Ÿงบ tables available. Worth a look!
  • Such a charming place with a rich history of a legendary American poet. Although Robert and his family only stayed here a short time you can see how influential this place was on his writing. It's definitely a must see! You can vist the garden and trail for free. You can even enjoy a picnic if you like at the tables provided. I would suggest booking the tour though so you can learn more and see the inside of the house too. Absolutely lovely for the time period.
  • Guided Tour was Great! They did an excellent job connecting the home and land to Robert Frost's poetry: I especially loved the little stories and personal experiences thrown in throughout, as well as the historical context. The grounds are beautiful, and the home has so many details. Absolutely worth stopping by for a tour, what a treasure.
  • Some say the world will end in fire. Some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire.
