I have played several concerts at this venue and always found it an ideal space. It is not Buckingham Palace, but nonetheless an intriguing window onto the past.

This was the best house tour I've been on. A 19th Century grand mansion sits above Otsego Lake. A house fallen on hard times is being restored by a devoted group. The tour was informed and fun.
