We did love this port, the houses were fantastic to walk through and the history was great. We particularly liked the Vanderbilt house with the individual tour headsets. Don't miss the kids cubby house outside that is more like a small cottage that people could live in.

Same as above because the tour included both homes.

The house is fabulous. Having read the book, Consuelo and Alva Vanderbilt, I was interested in seeing the house that Alva designed and where she plotted her daughter's loveless marriage to the Duke of Marlborough. There is a small snack bar on the premises, which is important if your excursion runs straight through lunch as ours did.
