  • Nestled in the Litchfield Hills, this place remains a piece of the past. Well manicured and a great place to soak up the natural beauty.  more »
  • On a beautiful spring day it was lovely. Unfortunately the house is closed. The park has great hiking and great views. Well worth a visit.  more »
  • Absolutely beautiful. 17 month old enjoyed walking around the outside of the house and looking at all the beautiful flowers.
  • The best time to go is early spring when all the many flowers are blooming wirh the different colors and fall with the color changing of the leaves when you come at the right time of winter it's so spectacular.
