  • We had lived in Lake County for 10+ years before visiting the Garfield House - and we should have gone sooner. It's a great look at the life and times of a man who sadly seems to be forgotten, even th...  more »

  • Wonderfully preserved national historic place. A well appointed & presented museum separate from the house. The guided tours are informative and very interactive. The guides are very well read & readily answer questions with ease and assuredness.
  • One of the best house tours I've ever been on. Not only was the house beautiful, but the tour guide was so knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend visiting the Garfield house if you have even the remotest interest in US History.
  • We drove all the way from nj to see this, and we wernt dissappointed. Our guide was amazing, full of information and had an answer to every question. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and the buildings are beautiful. Definitly a spot everyone should stop at.
  • The tour was well done. It's rare to have so many original items in the house.
  • I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this was! For a family with young kids traveling on a budget, it was great! We did not pay for the tour. You can go through the museum and walk the grounds for free. Informative little museum, good movie, and a free audio tour of the grounds using my cell phone was all we needed. Bathrooms are in a separate building (with plumbing) and they have the kind of water fountain where you can fill up your water bottle. Gift shop was small. Expect to spend more than one hour (if you don't do the tour).
