Gardens great! 3D quilt show excellent! Grand restored home beautiful! Excellent walking tours offered. I would recommend taking the guide tour, but nice trails if you are not interested in the tour.

This is a restored/preserved mansion of the wealthy Beebe family in Falmouth. They have a lot of nice art work there and it is a serene setting. The brochure indicate you can spend an hour or a day there and this is true.

Typically New England in style and lovingly maintained. The walks in the forest within the estate, though lovely are not particularly well signposted

Wonderful restoration of the house. The gardens are beautiful and give a taste of yesteryear. They do not have the old furnishings but use the facility as a show place for art and crafts. A very worth while visit.

Home and gardens are gorgeous but didn't feel like I was amazed. Was excited to see fairy houses but wasn't much to see. The story behind House was interesting but overall the place it's lacking. Really not much to see.
