  • As part of our day exploring Guildford, we visited the Hyland House Museum. Entrance fee was reasonable - $3/person. We had a fabulous guide for a private tour throughout the entire house...

  • You can get lost in time here! Seriously, I could have moved in and lived happily ever after! No modern day distractions. Loved the herb garden! I highly recommend you visit Hyland House.
  • Beautiful piece of history. The people that run tours and events here are fantastic. Went here to see a blacksmithing demonstration and toured the house.
  • I lived here for a year when I was a kid. It is extremely haunted. Terrifyingly so, hence 4 stars. Beautiful to visit, just don't stay the night.
  • Beautiful Saltbox, interesting guided tour by knowledgeable docents, beautiful old artifacts and so much history to learn about!
  • Incredible home with some extensive history. The family running the home and tours are beyond amazing and so full of knowledge.
