  • Beautifully restored home, nice gardens and gorgeous setting. The cheese wasn't great though.
  • Arrive so you can do the movie approximately every 30 minutes at the entry or the rest won't make sense. Make a reservation once you arrive for the mansion, tour the visitor center, the barn and make the Farm House and Mansion fit in after the movie. Allow 1 hour for the Farm House. Didn't have time to do Mansion, but I'd allow an hour. Very interesting.
  • Wonderful peek into how the super rich lived when modern appliances did not exist. We got the winter tour, along with a horse drawn sleigh ride and a tour of the house and stables. The most memorable part of the experience was seeing young calves in the barn, so much like baby deer. This place and its grounds are a national historical park so that must be worth something as well.
  • Family friendly activity in the Woodstock area. Kids and adults will enjoy meeting jersey dairy cows, gorgeous 1 ton muscular Belgian horses, and calves in the nursery. You can get up close and personal -- petting the animals, watching the milking process. They give free samples of the cheese and also had hot apple cider on the day we went. It was a great activity for the non skiers in our group.
  • Super nice and helpful guides. We didn't go into the farms but walked the carriage trails that were well groomed and easy. I wore inappropriate footwear for the walk and I had no problems walking the trails.
