And Every Sat and Sunday in October

Explore this romantic dream of history and art and experience the love story as you see 26 rooms on 2 floors. Self-guided so you choose your own pace which includes an audio program that you can dial up on your personal cell phone.

Don't miss the 9 elaborate gowns worn by Adrianne St George which will be on exhibit throughout the home. Also, a completed new room has been added the tour which you will enter from the ballroom called the "Memorial Hall." It contains all of our full-sized historically accurate replicas of RMS Titanic sculptures created by Alan St George. This neoclassical room rises to a grand height of 20 feet, and like many rooms in the home it is imbued with personal meaning.

Our new "Promenade Amoureaux" (Romantic Walk) has been created by our landscaper who says gardening "is the slowest of the arts," so don't expect to see it finished this season but you can enjoy a stroll past the "Musicians Terrace" and down the winding walkway under centuries old oak trees before departing our magical hilltop.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, or online. Doors open at 10 AM and close at 5 PM, with the last tours admitted at 4 PM. If you buy your ticket in advance, you can come anytime during the above hours. 

PLEASE NOTE: there are no elevators  and we are not handicap accessible. There is a steep incline to get to the house and stairs are involved.
