The home and its history were were lovely, and Clarence was an excellent host and storyteller. We took advantage of and enjoyed every exhibit.

An exceptionally good tour and guide. Refreshingly uncommercial attraction. More benches by the waterside, painting of the rest rooms and perhaps a small coffee bar would be great, but don’t do any more; that would lose the charm of this beautiful place. Thanks again so much
