To me, if you like history and don’t get a tour at The Glenn House when you’re in Cape, you’re doing it wrong! It was a truly excellent experience. The guided tour my friend and I were given was amazing. I am blown away by the fact that volunteers have been pulling for literally decades to deliver the experience. Our guide, whose name i am going to guess is spelled Raina, was a delight and incredibly knowledgeable. Frankly, after the tour, I regretted not being able to volunteer and help out myself! Seems like such an interesting endeavor with loads of passionate people. The house itself was beautiful. I can only imagine the countless hours spent on making sure every single aspect of it was gorgeous. It truly seems like Victorian era wealth is on display. Every single room was jaw dropping and i wish i took more pictures. I was so caught up in the tour experience that I rarely thought to. There are so many details in each room. It’s amazing. I’d love to go back at a different time of year when they have changed up displays for the holidays.
We had a delicious luncheon there. Mary Lou Bass and the other volunteers do such a wonderful job! The Carrige House is lovely and the table settings were beautiful. Everything was absolutely delightful.
