Brief but interesting tour of the home. Wish we could have had more time to explore it. Good historical overview given by tour guide. Goulah discussion very interesting, new information for us. I had lunch and tea service in the restaurant. Delicious food and drink, impeccable service! Very buggy on the day i visited, and i left with several bug bite welts. They did have bug spray available but i was not made aware of it until after many bites happened! Spray up before getting out of your car!
