Beautiful. Well preserved. Docents are passionate about the history of the place. Though December is not a time for showcasing gardens, the grounds were immaculate.

Great initial video, and a lot information about life of a president. The plantation is big, but walkable, no pictures inside house. The gift shop is not good.

There are wheelchairs available on-site if you should need one of those. Otherwise, the only stairs that would be used are those in the mansion to the second floor. As many have said, the longest walk is the path from the... More

They sell beverages at several locations so no need to pack your own. The length of the walk is up to you. For just the house and gardens probably less than 1 1/4 miles. Is tour all of the hounds maybe 3 miles?
