  • We were enjoying some sunshine and we were chased away for allowing our children to play. While the grounds are beautiful the staff is rude!  more »
  • A little history detour from bourbon tasting paying off in spades. Wonderfully appointed historic mansion, though rebuilt by Clay's son on existing foundation. Tour guide Neil Mizer (sp?), a real stud...  more »
  • I enjoyed a very educational, entertaining guided tour of the mansion on Saturday, November 11, 2017. The tour took about an hour. In addition, I devoted about two more hours to browsing the gift shop...  more »

  • Beautiful and historic estate close to downtown. Excellent for an afternoon of picnics, frisbee, or playing with the dog. Plenty of historical markers for history buffs, ghost stories for the fans of the Paranormal, and naturalists will appreciate the marked trees.
  • Henry Clay is interesting, so it's a shame the guide spent most of the time droning on about his grand nieces, etc. This would be a great tour if you're from Lexington and obsessed with the local social scene, but it's not so interesting if you want to expand your understanding of Henry Clay's place in American history.
  • Beautiful place. Lots,to see and do. Get there ea f2f my it closes at 5
  • This is a beautiful, privately owned park. It is free to walk in the park, but one must park on the street after hours. There are well-maintained mulched paths and a beautiful garden. There is a small charge for touring the house and other buildings. The park has a beautiful, very extensive collection of peonies, which is a must-see in the spring. There is no charge for touring the peony gardens.
  • Wonderful historic site! Many interesting areas to explore, lots of on site markers with great information
