  • Visiting this beautiful, humble estate makes for a great day trip. The guides deliver an initmate and engaging history of one of the worlds most influential women. Hike up to Top Cottage or Farm Lane while you're there.

  • Loved. Loved this place! Extremely interesting. What a strong fabulous woman was Eleanor and it felt magical to be at her place
  • We stopped here before going on to see the FDR library and grounds. Beautiful place to visit. We saw several people out just enjoying the trails on the property. Friendly, knowledgeable rangers and staff. Would love to return.
  • Fascinating to see how simply she lived. Lovely rose gardens.
