Weird and Amazing
Sep. 2019
We slept here and we toured here. There are a few rooms with excellent descriptions, pictures, artifacts, old historical books. It will take you about an hour to read everything. The grounds outside are so beautiful, a humongous swing is out there! Anyway, the history of the community seeking perfection is very well documented, the artwork is gorgeous. There's a big room with a stage where the members would perform. Upstairs there's a great gathering of materials from when the Oneida people would travel and bring things back. We walked around this place at night, had a creepy, really cool feel to it!

A truly amazing place!
Oct. 2019
This is a tremendously fascinating place - a 90,000 share-foot Victorian mansion, built by John Humphrey Noyes and his 250-member Christian socialist commune and greatly successful animal trap manufacturing business in the middle 1800s. The Mansion House is steeped in the history of this amazing utopian community!

Lousy stay at weird place
Sep. 2019 • Couples
My wife and I needed a place to stay when we visited my son at college up here way upstate. From afar this mansion looked like an interesting choice. 93,000 ft.² in a historic destination. Eclectic offering of small number of rooms. Even listed in atlas ObScura! However it was a disappointing hotel stay. The grounds and the enormous facility are indeed impressive. But it’s more like staying at a really old school where they kind a rent out some rooms. Our room had two twin beds even though we’d specified queen and they couldn’t accommodate a change. The place was in need of a major makeover in terms of the furnishings carpet and bathroom set up. The room was certainly large enough and being able to open the window and lay in the breeze was helpful. But two nights on lousy lumpy mattresses with the beds pushed together, compounded by the fact that they did not clean the room after the first night and made the lukewarm and unacceptable excuse that we hadn’t asked to Have the room cleaned Sealed our dissatisfaction. We are world travelers, we appreciate and enjoy an eccentric and non-luxury accommodation with the best of them. But them is ain't one. There are almost no choices in the greater Utica area for place to stay but this is not the one to select.

There is a lot I could say about this review but I will stick to the main points. This reservation was made by the guest online. At the time they made their online reservation, they picked their room, we did not assign it to them. At no point did they actually speak to anyone here at the Mansion House and ask for a queen room. They were sent an email confirmation of their reservation that stated the room they had reserved (one of our twin rooms), it also contained our policy on housekeeping, that stated for stays of more than one night, the room would be cleaned on the second day. In all of the rooms, there is a door hanger that can be placed outside the door if they want it serviced. I am very sorry that they did not enjoy their stay here at the Mansion House as most of our guests love it here.

Interesting but ...
Jun. 2019 • Couples
We were there for the tour but no one was giving tours that day. The five dollar admission was reasonable. We did the self guided tour. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit but if you are in the area and it is a rainy day you might consider it.

Try their specialized tours offered throughout the year. The docents are knowledgeable and friendly. The Oneida Community was a fascinating group during a fascinating period in history. A visit here is well worth the time

Fascinating historical utopia
Oct. 2018 • Couples
We stayed in one of the B&B rooms in the 98,000 sq ft mansion and had a tour the following day. The community supported itself by making silk thread, metal work such as animal traps and eventually the Oneida silverware. The beliefs of this group originally got them kicked out of the state of Vermont and were incredibly fascinating. Other reviews discuss in greater detail.

We greatly enjoyed our tour, which include fascinating details about life in the Oneida community, including business operations, beliefs, and living conditions. It was informative, beautiful location, and altogether a worthwhile visit. Very inexpensive to visit.
