This is a gorgeous place to visit, and a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a day. The grounds, including gardens, woods, towers, and lawn, are beautiful. The scenery is breathtaking and iconic views abound.

Hi I don’t know the opening times but entry to the grounds by car is only permitted if you have a reservation at the lodge or hotel. You can walk through the grounds at any time during opening hours.
