This place is breath taking. There is so much room to walk around the park and bring a dog. The tours are well done too, with lots of beautiful antiques in the mansion.

Grounds were well groomed and expansive with the mansion sitting above all in white. Interesting things collected and displayed from owners from late 1800s to early 1900s. Also enjoyed the carriage museum to see carriages and sleighs from around the world. So well preserved!

Yes there's plenty of picnic tables, and benches. After you enter go to the left and you will see a large parking lot. There's tables there. Enjoy!
