Fodor's Review

Oxen, sheep, pigs, and other animals roam this 118-acre New England farmstead. Once the estate of Henri Bendel, the property includes a Tudor-revival stone mansion housing exhibits on natural history, art, and Americana. An observatory has a 22-inch research telescope—perfect for stargazing—and nature trails wind through the woods.
