  • Beautiful restoration, amazing history and tour, very clean. Haunted? I heard what sounded exactly like a down stairs cabinet door slam shut and there wasn't anybody down there. So, I must be of the validated opinion that it is.
  • Talk about customer service. They catered to me and such a manner that I don't even feel it would be right to share. Because I will tell you, there's no way they would be able to make customer feel as welcome as we did. The president of the Vaile came and met us personally. We saw every room down to the basement. Such an extravagant place. There's ever a room of rarities and antiques they acquired over the years that are all for sale. The amount of History they have currently stored in this house is one of the most elaborate and impressive collections I'm aware of.
