We took the behind the scenes tour, which takes you to the attic, cellars, and hidden staircases. Somewhat challenging. Very knowledgeable guide who had lived at this pre-revolutionary war dwelling. House has been expanded, updated, and hosted a lot of interesting folk. See the vault...More

Attended a free concert on the mansion lawn. Great turnout and great band. Ample parking and most of all it was all free. From what i heard they do this often.

Really enjoyed the time and care that they have put into restoring the Montpelier Mansion. Great way to spend an afternoon - be sure to check the time it is open before going and allow some time to read all the great information provided.

Self tour was excellent. You receive a pamphlet that describes what you're seeing throughout the tour. The desk people were very knowriteable and friendly. No pressure at all.

As kids, we all used to tell ghost stories of this place. It just has that appearance from the outside. Cool place to visit if you find yourself in Laurel and in need of killing some time.

This former plantation is an interesting place to visit. The mansion and grounds are used for festivals, concerts, and the year Shakespeare in the Park. I love visiting Montpelier. You can also take arts classes at the Arts Center here. I go here often

We did a self tour of the Mansion and the grounds on a cold frosty day. It was pretty empty and so we had the whole place practically to ourselves, not considering the staff, who were really nice and friendly. The entrance fee is $5...More

No. It sat on a plateau. They had the view of a river but no lake at the immediate property I believe.
