    Man, been looking at pictures of this place for 30 years, and sooo glad my wife got me the in-depth tour. Got to go in every room, including the basement.

    No idea. Looks like a place I visited in Costa Rica a few years back. Any caimans in that water?

    One cool thing was the callbox in the servants quarters. Each room had a call button, I assume the numbers were per room so the servants knew which room was calling.

    Tour took two hours, only ten people in the group, anywhere from 10-15 minutes in each space.

    I did stop by the Ohiopyle, but did NOT hit the rapids..... We did talk about the humidity issues the house faces. All the woodwork looks amazing, even so. They did have to install a dehumidifier in the guest house, since the back wall of that is halfway buried into the slope.

    I visited Crystal Bridges in Arkansas when I was there. Similar feel, look, experience.
