  • One of my all time favorite views - looking out across the Salmon Falls River from the back of the house. The essence of peaceful. And the manicured gardens are delightful as well! They've recently rebuilt a traditional stone wall that is just perfect. And the fact that you can walk to Vaughn Woods is quite the bonus!
  • The house was beautiful. Gardens superb. Excellent place to visit fit a few hours and pet friendly bring your own waste bags.
