  • This is a great place to visit for history buffs. Rob was an amazing your guide, very informative and a great sense of humor to boot. After the tour some great wines to taste and if you're hungry the restaurant has great food very reasonably priced. Hope you get a chance to go and enjoy!
  • Wonderful place. Very nice tour guide. Tasty wine.
  • The home and grounds were much smaller than I expected however the tour guide I had made the trip worth it, she was phenomenal.
  • Very good tour guide! Beautiful grounds and very informative signage all over the property. If you come early in the day, make sure to grab a bite at the Harding House, an onsite restaurant. Delicious!!!
