We visited Hildene while on vacation at nearby Stratton Mountain and I'm so very glad we did. The house and the land it is on is absolutely stunning. Pretty much everything inside of the house looked original and it really felt like you were living back when Robert Todd Lincoln was alive. It's a self guided tour so you are free to roam around the grounds and house. There was a person who worked for Hildene there to answer any questions you may have. It was $12.50 for the house and grounds but only $5.00 if you only wanted to tour the grounds. There was also an Abraham Lincoln exhibit in one wing of the house that was very nice and included Lincoln's hat that he used to wear. If I ever go back to Manchester in the future I definitely want to go back here!!
