  • My friends and I had a wonderful time touring the grounds. And the house tour was superbly narrated by Rachel, our tour guide. The seafood bisque was very delicious at the cafe behind the gift shop. I would recommend people to take this tour especially in the coolness of March. A lot of the flowers where in bloom, but not the tulips. You have to tour in January to see the majesty of the tulips.
  • Gorgeous scenery. Interesting home tour. Peacocks were fun and everywhere. Enjoyed the history and learning of the unique tragedy. Staff was incredibly friendly. Cafe was delicious. Great experience all around.
  • This is great place to visit. The gardens are beautiful, the house tour was fun and informative ( I even tipped our tour guide. A wonderful lady), the on grounds cafe has some excellent food and lively atmosphere. It was a great time had by us. Will visit again.
  • A gem. Meandering the gardens is lovely and the house is beautiful. I recommend stopping here even if you only have an hour. If you have young children, pushing strollers that don't have the tires can be very challenging. I look forward to returning to try the cafe and the bed and breakfast.
  • Went for lunch at the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. Had very good seafood gumbo and delightfully fluffy biscuits! Then toured the gorgeous grounds, taking in the water, trees, architecture and of course peacocks! A gorgeous place to visit even in January and I would love to return come spring when everything is in bloom.
