  • I am so glad we went there on a gray, rainy day for the Christmas at Lorenzo tour. Every person we came into contact with was superb— friendly, and welcoming, and eager to answer our questions...

  • Very enjoyable tour of the house with a very knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed our stroll through the gardens and the views of the lake. Unfortunately the visitor center was closed due to storm damage.
  • The gentleman that was our guide (former history teacher) was wonderful & answered any question we had. He truly knows the property. Very much appreciated.
