The tour guides are very friendly and helpful, and provide fascinating details about the history of the early 1900s. For example, one of the guest bedrooms had two twin beds and they explained that, because transportation took so much longer in those days, people generally stayed for longer times and many times young ladies (for their amusement as well as safety) brought friends as traveling companions, so it was standard to have two beds in a guest bedroom of that sort. The guides also know interesting details about the house as well--I remember our guide pointing to an elaborate monster of a silver chandelier which was called "The Servant's Nightmare" because it took seven days to polish all of its nooks and crannies.
I very much enjoyed seeing the lavish furnishings of this U.S. National Register Historic Place, as well as the peaceful atmosphere of the grounds outside, which you can explore without a guide. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a beautiful historic attraction to visit in Duluth!
