This house is still being restored but the 2 floors that are open to the public are worth time. I found the rooms to be well presented and a good look into the life of the privileged of the time.

Capt. Flavel's Victorian Queen Anne is an elegant example of gracious living in the late 19th century. The home had all the modern conveniences!! The video, which is shown in the carriage house, is very informative and should not be missed. The woodwork, throughout the...More

I just loved this place! High ceilings, rich woodwork everywhere, beautiful doors, clocks, furniture, fireplace mantels, chandeliers. A dark interior adds to the richness. Highly recommend a visit.

Absolutely beautiful Victorian mansion. The history of the Flavel family and the mansion itself make this a worthwhile visit. I was particularly surprised to see that indoor plumbing was included in a house built in the 1880’s. A short video does an outstanding job of...More

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to the Flavel house. The victorian house was beautifully decorated inside and out. The architecture through out the house was done with such detail. We loved the blinds and the stair case. My husband loved taking pictures through...More

If you like old Victorian homes, this is for you. It is easy to see quickly but priced accordingly. Great vaulted ceilings in the hallways, many of the rooms cordoned off, but still plenty to see. Lots of antiques and a knowledgeable staff. Having tea...More
