If you're into fascinating architecture, Miramont Castle should be on your itinerary. It's fun to walk thru and take in the various features of the building. Forget about the contents, not much worth seeing if you're not into creepy old dolls, but it's an okay...More

I’d rate this higher if it was donation only. As it was, at $10 per person, it felt like a rip off to us. Takes about 10-20 minutes to walk through, so very overpriced. Perhaps if one gets the tea and makes a day of...More

This is really a fun visit. Yes it is haunted but nothing scary at all. The tour is very interesting and the food in the Queen's Parlour is excellent.

Nice little self guided tour through this large house now turned into a museum. Has a hodgepodge of many different subjects. Great view of the mountains from multiple large windows.

The woman at the front desk was very uncomfortable with young children. Children need to be capable of understanding "don't touch." Had a wonderful time at tea, but also not for children until they are old enough to sit fairly still for an hour.

The girls enjoyed the tea and service. The were being quite silly by the time we were finished! The staff was nice and the girls enjoyed being pampered.
