  • Had a really nice time exploring this estate. The falls and the estate itself are well worth the admission. If you don't ask questions of the staff you are really missing out on a lot of the information available about this historic place. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The grounds are very well maintained. You will enjoy this stop.

I particularly enjoyed the stunning views and carefully curated scenes in each room. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a sense of whimsy and adventure. I can't wait to go back and try the basement tours or the astronomy nights, which I was told happen once a month. Amazing!
