  • What an incredible house and gardens! If you want to see an original example of residential art deco decor, be sure to visit. Pay close attention to the master bedroom's dressing rooms (yes, there are two), the stenciling on the bedroom walls, and the relief-printed wallpaper on the second floor. The only downside is that no photographs are allowed in the house, so make sure to commit all of the beautiful features to memory.
  • Very lovely home....with so many special touches unseen in any other homes.....I look forward to touring it again.
  • I visited twice, and as a garden enthusiast, I had a boring experience. But maybe it was just the time of the year I went. I was disappointed, and I couldn't understand what all of the hype was about. But probably a great place to have a wedding and teas/showers, and meetings with a great dining area and tea service.
  • Cool house and gardens, tour guide was annoying though, wish you could just walk around and take pictures but then no one would pay to see the inside
  • Very friendly staff and gorgeous place to visit. Parking is a bit scary to get to, but drive slow and courteous and you will be fine. :D
