  • Really enjoyed the tour. It was great to hear the history of this home. There were 2 things that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating, the first was that tours only started at the top of every hour so we had to wait around for it to start (thankfully there was a lot of other things to explore). The other negative was that it would have been great to see the entire house but we didn't get to go in the attic or another one of the bedrooms. I would not allow these negatives to deter me from recommending the tour though. Definitely a great way to spend an afternoon.
  • The tour was very informative. The tour guide was very engaging. She even invited my group to play on the antique piano, and sit in the reproduced desk of Emerson. Most of the furniture was original, and you can see sentences carved by Hawthorne and his wife on the window glasses. It is definitely much more interesting having a guided tour than just looking at the house by yourself.
