“A great look at the experience of living in the past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

Manned and maintained by volunteers, the house is impeccably kept both inside and out. It has been equipped as best as possible with period furnishings and actual items once owned by the Hughes family. A guided tour gives you a history and explaination of the home's interior and history and then you can roam at your leisure through the home to better take in the interior collections and maybe take a few pictures if you are so inclined.

“While you're visiting Cape Blanco Lighthouse...”

Its just off the road to Cape Blanco. Restored and gives an historic view to life on the coast 100 years ago.

“Great tour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2012

This is a fun house to tour through. For the era it was built, it was quite modern. The tour guide was very friendly and informative.

“wow what can i say?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

This place is beautiful!! Sitting on a bluff overlooking the river & within hiking distance to the ocean - it is such a gem!! Decorated just as it was originally - the house & furnishings are a step back in time. If you enjoy historically correct experiences - this is the place to visit. It is manned by knowledgable volunteers. I even think there are picnic tables too. Plus Cape Blanco lighthouse is just down the road.

“little piece of history”

care takers had alot of knowlege of the history of the house and had cute stories. it was a little musty inside and steep stairs but it was well decorated and most everything was original from that time.
