  • Had a house tour with Celine last Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it, she was very knowledgeable and friendly and really made the tour. The house is beautiful and the history is fascinating. Beautiful grounds with lots to see and do. The cafe is lovely for food. Extremely helpful and friendly staff throughout. Very dog and family friendly
  • Wonderful area to walk hike and bike. Dogs need to me on a leash. We got warned when we had our little jack Russell play fetch. Old ruins around the are also worth checking out events. Always something there from music events to farmers craft and food market. Wooded area as well. And when you lucky and walk down the ally after the mansion there is also a small market. Highly recommend.
