Absolutely breathtaking. The guides are very knowledgeable. They were very nice and got my husband and myself in for a tour at the last second. We won’t be back to the area for a long time if at all, so it was a real treat! If you love the Victorian Era, this is a must.
Wonderful experience. Loved the original and authentic pieces of furniture, and the ceilings were magnificent. A beautiful historical Victorian house.
