  • Very knowledgeable people about the complete history giving these yours. The architecture for the period the house was built is simply incredible. A must do event if you love history and classic architecture.
  • The guide,dressed in period clothing, gives the tour as Mrs. Vaile . A butler even answers the door 😁 . The house is amazing and beautifully restored. I can't wait to go back. However, due to the stairs, the second floor is not handicap friendly.
