Lovely, relaxing historic site along the Susquehanna. Sorry we got there too late for the tour, but even the self-guided tour brochure & building info displays are very helpful.

We attended an event here held by the library for it's summer reading participants. The grounds were really nice! There was lots of space for things to do, plenty of parking, clean bathrooms and the barn was air conditioned (thank goodness, it was HOT outside.) And the playground near the picnic pavilions were a welcome place to sit and let the kids play.

Took my son on a whim after reading reviews. Knowledgeable tour guide through the mansion and great price of $5 for me and $3 for my student son. They also have senior price. Took a map and walked the grounds too. Would be great for a picnic on the grounds too. Didn't realize you can also rent several venues for weddings or reunions etc.

The mansion was very interesting and fun to go through. The tour guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would recommend to anyone who has an hour to spend. My teenager thought it was cool

Our tour guide was knowledgable and funny. The history of the families that lived there is interesting and the furniture and paintings are beautiful. Way worth the measly $5 fee. They should charge more.
