The Oneida community was an attempt to develop a utopian community, 1848-1870. The museum part presents an excellent story of that community and what it did and did not manage to do. It offers a few rooms for overnight lodging, a library and can be rented for events. This impressive edifice is well worth the detour off route 90.

We arrived late for the guided tour (no signage - mansion a little hard to find) but the attendant was happy to give us a private tour! She was very knowledgeable and interesting. The Oneida Community was a religious society with some fascinating "doctrines" such as complex marriage and mutual criticism. The mansion is beautiful.

The Oneida Community Mansion House offers visitors a unique opportunity to stay at a museum/historical landmark. The Oneida Community was a 19th Century Utopian Christian experiment that preached the idea that human beings could be perfect before God on Earth. Progressive even by today's standards, the Oneida Community thrived for about forty years until it eventually eroded, leaving in its wake a successful flatware company and a majestic mansion house that now houses a museum, a restaurant, apartments, and rooms for overnight guests. The rooms truly are gorgeous and have high ceilings, large private bathrooms, and enormous windows that look out over the lush, well-manicured grounds. Your stay includes a tour and breakfast. Anyone who is curious about America's more obscure social, intellectual, and religious history would enjoy an stay in this gorgeous, austere old house. You should also check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oneida_community to learn more about the Oneida Community.

The Oneida Community Mansion house makes for an interesting change to your hoilday. Step back into history in the mansion house which once served as home to an early religious based "Perectionist community". The immense home has only a few rooms available for tourists; all of which are huge and airy. Fully contained with internet access, the rooms are more than you can imagine! Complimentary breakfast and a tour of the magnificent mansion are included in the tarrif.
The staff were so helpful before and during our stay - take a breath of fresh air here.
