The Flavel house is a lovingly preserved house that was home to the city's most distinguished family. Its hard to escape how passionate the volunteers that run this place are about this place and it shows. Absolutely worth a stop.

If you like to see real craftsmanship, this place has it. There is so much to take in. Every piece of furniture is cool. All of the hinges from door to door is different. Each one being carved. If you have the time, this place...More

Probably the highlight of our Astoria visit (but then, we love old homes). Start your tour in the carriage house/gift shop with a film that tells the history of the Flavel family.

The film in the ticketing area was a highlight. It describes the Flavels (the original owners) and the source of their wealth. The house and grounds are well-maintained. We visited off-season so we were able to linger in the house. Volunteers were happy to answer...More

This is a very quaint historical home. It is worth the price of a ticket to walk through this house on a self-guided tour. You can take pictures, but no flash allowed.

This house has been very well looked after. Gives the visitor a really good insight into the good life back then!

The Flavel House is a beautiful place! Capt. Flavel certainly made sure his family was well taken care of, and safe. It felt like a real home, not like a museum as so many older homes do. I would definitely recommend seeing this one!

No not without walking. The trolley runs along the water front and this house is up a few blocks.
