A magical experience, particularly the art colony dining room. A time warp to when great artists summered there and shared their God given talents with each other and their host
Absolutely love this gem of a museum. Do yourself a favor and make plans to visit. Be sure to walk the grounds, especially near the water.
Always a great way to spend a couple of hours. The art exhibits seem to change every couple of months making the experience fresh and new each time.
Came for the fairy exhibit. Very beautiful grounds and really good cafe!
My favorite. Like no other. Great place to spend a leisurely afternoon alone or with friends/family. The museum, the house, the docents, the exhibits, Cafe Flo, the view, the gift shop - all top notch.
