Parking: North Front St divides the house with the other buildings: barn, covered bridge, tavern etc. There is parking on both sides of North Front St. House: Guided tour of the house. Tour lasted about 60 minutes. Lovely house, you go to 2 floors and the garden. Gift shop in one of the rooms. In the beginning, you go to a room to watch a short video and then our group got divided in two to tour the house. I did not see any chairs for people to sit while visiting the different rooms. Bathroom: Staff told me that the bathroom is located outside by the river walk. That bathroom does not have flushing toilets and sink. People take pictures around the home and they change in that bathroom. I wanted to use the bathroom and opened the door and I saw 2 ladies changing their clothes. Later on, I saw one of the women modeling for pictures and the other one coordinating the location of the pictures. There are picnic tables by the river walk. Plenty of shade. I did not notice any bathrooms by the barn side. I am glad we visited this home.
Beautiful views, relaxed setting, volleyball net, playground, & nice bathroom for a park. Very well maintained grounds and some beautiful flowers in the cutting garden near the wedding venue. Great spot to stretch your legs during a road-trip.
