Nice tour however you need to get your name on a list early in the day and the tours are small. Tours are run by parks service and there is no charge

Smooth carriage trails for walking but enough uphill so you get a workout, ending in a pretty pond which you can walk around for additional steps. Trails are well marked.

We did the 30 minute free glimpse tour. As we were early we sat on the porch and enjoyed the sunshine. Our guide, Julia, was great and so knowledgable. The house was interesting especially as the family members over about 150 years had all been involved in conservation, some well ahead of their time. Sadly we did not get time... More

This is the only National Parks System Tour in Vermont and is well worth the price of admission. My wife and I took the "Service" tour that focuses attention on the service area of the home. The tour also took us completely around three floors of the home. Open since 1998, it should be on everyone's to-do list. Our guide,... More

The farm is really interesting, but the highlight was the guided tour around the mansion with all the history up to the more recent Rockefeller days. Lovely spot. There is a reasonable entrance fee, but the 'glimpse' 30 min tour of the mansion was free.

Take the short, half hour, free Park Service tour of the house where three families came to recognize and further the ideal of conservation of natural space. You will then be ready to walk the trails and visit the farm. Kudos to our Park Service for their care, knowledge and genuine respect for those who wander at this place.

The carriage roads throughout the National Historical Park are well marked and are a beautiful setting to take a walk or hike. The view from atop Mount Tom is amazing. Don't miss the well produced film at the information center about the three families that lived here.

You can take a quick Free 30 minute tour during certain times throughout the day, check in over at Billings Farm first and get all the available times from the reception desk. Then depending on available times you can wander around the farm until the Museum Tours start. There is a nice path way that connects the two places. The... More
