We held a training workshop for clients here. The setting was beautiful. Air conditioning was lacking, though, and the catering was not up to our usual standards.

Spectacular mansion. Informative tour was long enough but not too long to bore the teenager. You can now take non-flash photography. Nice small gift shop. Great place to take out of town guests.
