  • Worth the visit, nice views. Went in the spring and again in the fall. Try to be there for a program and special events. The Friends of Grant Cottage do a lovely job.  more »

  • A wonderful trip back in time. Grant's cottage has been kept just as it was when he died in 1885. The tour guides are great and give you details of Grant's legacy that few people know. Highly recommended!
  • The cottage where General Grant wrote his memoir is a wonderful spot to spend an afternoon. If you're a history buff, take the guided tour of the house, while if you're looking for scenic views you can take the short, paved trail to an expansive overlook of the southern Adirondacks and Vermont. Nearby is the (closed) Mt McGregor correctional facility which adds another interesting layer to the area.
  • This a charming piece of history nestled on the hilltop of My McGregor in Wilton is worth a visit on lovely grounds with a grand view!
  • Very fascinating and interesting history of the cottage, General Grant, the area where it's located and the era that encompassed the origins of the property. I've lived in the area my whole life and can't believe I hadn't been up here. A definite must see, especially on a nice day!
  • The view off that little path on the right is breathtaking and wheelchair accessible. It was so nice to show my brother-in-law what my wife and I see when we climb mountains.
