We visited Naumkeag on a perfect early summer day. The grounds were the high point of the visit for me, though the house tour was interesting and well done. As is the style for the era, the rooms were fairly dark--wood, wall coverings, etc.--but brightened...More

A classic from the past. The estate is fabulous with fabulous gardens and views. You get a real sense of what it may have been like to live there back in the day. The Trust has cared for this property very nicely. Highly recommended.

The house is filled with the family things, not just pieces from the era. The trustees have done remarkable restoration to the gardens. Recommend!

Amazing country estate built by the Choate family in 1868. Wonderful glimpse into the past of how life was in a mansion with a 9-person household staff and a ground stall of dozens. Sort of a mini-Downton Abbey experience.

Take the guided tour of this fascinating home and gardens that is lovingly maintained by a non-profit foundation. Spectacular views of surrounding areas. The interior of the house has the original furniture and furnishings, which is so rare to find.

There are 2 floors in the mansion and just a staircase but no working elevator; plus the beautiful grounds are steep in several areas. Call them and find out more.

Would a toddler enjoy the gardens? I plan to take her through the house, probably will need to leave her stroller outside. Overall, is this a nice place for a family (with toddlers) to spend a couple hours?

I think your child would enjoy the gardens probably more then the house tour; there is a 2nd floor with stairs but I think do able.
