We would love to have had the chance to meet Mrs. Pinchot, the matriarch of the family. She must have been a real pistol. One of her most remarkable contributions to the home is the water topped table in the outdoor dining room. The framework of the dining "room" was covered by wisteria, which protected us from a light rain that started during our tour. The tour of the interior of the mansion only included three of the many rooms which was a little disappointing. Our tour guide was confident, well spoken and extremely informative and took care to point out many of the creative touches the family integrated into their summer home. The grounds had been clear cut before the building was built, allowing the landscapers the freedom of starting with a blank slate in which to design beautiful gardens to truly reflected their creative ideas.
