Thorough and interesting tour -- much improved from several years ago. Terrific guide. Much more work needs to be done on the house, so the tour will likely be even better in the future.

Our tour guide (who clearly is very passionate about this historical building) gave us a very entertaining tour of this lovely home, including recounting stories about its colorful former inhabitants and the large amount of work that has been put into restoring it.

And our tour guide, Linda, did just that. She obviously loves Ventford and enjoys telling the history of the property, including all the many owners, changes in the mansion over the year and the current restoration. A delightful way to spend 1-2 hours. It will...More
