The Rockefellers transferred the property to the federal government in 1992. It is the only unit of the United States National Park System in Vermont (except for a portion of the Appalachian Trail).

  • Didn't do any tours, but they are available with advanced preparation. Did a nice little walk around some of the grounds. Nice trails and other landscapes. Wonderful place to have a fall hike.

  • Nature at its best. We missed out on the home tour due to timing. Another fine example of the National Park System and it's value to us all.

  • This is the only home within the park. Has a ranger within to explain. Has a trail to walk throughout the park. A historic family owned place until donated to the county to become a tourist action. A very good place to think and enjoy the beauty of the past. A well preserved home. You could really tell how many could go far.
  • A cool morning but we had a beautiful walk/hike in these beautiful Vermont woods. Trees just beginning to turn colors, a pond to walk around,a gentle breeze and a time to reflect on one of God's beautiful creation. The view point was calming.
  • We visited the historical mansion associated with the park. It was absolutely worth it! Kelly was our guide, and she was honestly the best tour guide I've had. She had so many stories about the home that were fascinating and you could tell how passionate she was about the conservation of home and surrounding areas. She really had us thinking by the end of the tour! She also gave us a heads up about the fern garden located in the back of the property. Well worth the small hike. It was beautiful and felt like you were in Jurassic Park.
  • This is a beautiful, well-tended property, including gardens. But the real highlight of our visit was the tour of the house. Our tour guides Ashley and Kay were outstanding; they shared historical information with our group but also engaged us in a thought-provoking conversation about the meaning of stewardship, legacy, and conservation. These young women gave me hope for the future.
  • Very beautiful mansion! I wish we could have seen more of the house! The wood work is amazing! The detail is crazy! Very cool to see how the 1% lived!
