  • 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.
