  • This was an amazing day trip. I took my 3 year old daughter and although the tour of the house was not long, she was antsy and ready to go toward the end. We went on a rather hot day, but it did not deter from how amazing this place is. We loved walking through the gardens and making a day of it. We will definitely be back! Also, we are a military family, and I was fully ready to pay for our trip, but military is free! Extra bonus!
