Although we did not take the tour (MAKE RESERVATIONS) we did enjoy the shop and the property. It has some beautiful views of the Catskills. The bridge is lovely. Look for the carp and coy. This property would be lovely for a picnic.

Yeah but would be tight. If you just visited the homes yes, but might be a stretch if you plan to go to FDR museum and the grounds of the properties.
