If you like this type of stuff it's nice. A "George Washington slept here" kinda town, and old colonial homes all up and down the street if this wasn't enough. Kept in good condition, the gardens were my favorite part. Went to a craft fair, wonderful craft fair during the town's fall festival.

I had an excellent tour. When you start out, its ok. But the second part of the house, which also was built in the 1700s was much more grand. Very good docent.

This is a beautiful historic house on a beautiful historic Main Street. Try to combine the visit with one of the King House Museum <suffieldhistoricalsociety.org/kinghouse.htm>. Call them in advance to ask if Lester Smith, the town historian, can give you a tour. You won't regret it.
