The house is nice, but we really enjoyed the hidden spaces tour, which takes you to the extensive bomb shelter, the bowling alley, the back rooms of the house, and such. The grounds are also worth wandering, with some interesting victorian touches. FYI, the tour would have been too long for most kids.

What a great find it was thanks to Trip Advisor! I give it a 10! We walked the first day because we arrived late in the day. Walking up to the Pogue through the reforested land was awesome! Hearing an owl and seeing the ducks on the Pond was amazing! The next day we went back to see the mansion.... More

Glorious, gracious, tastefully decorated, and everywhere a sense that the families will be just in the next room! The mansion alone was worth the drive to Woodstock, VT. The grounds are lush and spreading, the art work all throughout the home museum worthy. But the most telling aspect of the whole place was how far seeing the 3 families were... More

The tour is free with your admission and it is the only way you can go inside the house to see it. They have kept everything as is when it was gifted to the National Park Service. The house had three different owners (that's where it's name comes from) and has furniture and design elements from all the families that... More

Access to the house is only via tours that run every hour. Our guide Jim was very knowledgable and also obviously very passionate about the house and the family. The house itself is set in extensive property and has a stunning outlook. The house inside is really interesting because the furnishing etc is all original as the owners left it.... More

Our tour of the mansion was very interesting. It gave a glimpse into the past and included information on the natural surroundings. Heavy emphasis on environmental awareness

We visited the Billings farm as well as touring the mansion and walking some of the surrounding trails. Although I had no prior knowledge of the house's succession of owners (or, indeed, much about the Rockefeller family) Scott Davison as our National Parks guide brought the house and contents to life through detailed knowledge and wonderful stories. The theme of... More

We did this tour on a rainy afternoon instead of a hike up Mount Tom but thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and it was a very interesting tour.

We toured this on a rainy overcast day and were very impressed with the tour guide and the amount of history in the building. It is very nicely preserved with some period pieces. Unfortunately we were not able to tour the farm across the street due to the rain.
