  • A beautiful setting (those views!) and museum that provided excellent history of the Duke family. Nice, small gift shop with knowledgeable staff. Parking was easy. Definitely Recommend

  • The entire cliff walk is a wonderful stroll and gives you the view of the Atlantic and the back of some mansions. Most of the trail path is paved and easy walking there are some rocky points for minimal climbing as needed. From one end to the other in the back is about 7 miles but You can just do portions.
  • Beautiful place, inside and out. Upstairs has art galleries showing family history and photos plus Asian art collection. The formal garden and ocean views are lovely. Check out where Doris Duke's helicopter landed.
