We work hard to make the estate accessible for guests with special needs.




We would like for every guest visiting the home and garden to have a pleasant experience. The first floor of the home and portions of the garden are wheelchair accessible. We offer transportation from the Visitor Center to the home and garden and back, and there is handicap parking available directly in front of the Visitor Center.

Because the garden paths are pea gravel and the rugs in the home are thick, motor-powered wheelchairs may not work throughout the entirety of the estate. We do have free manual wheelchairs at the Visitor Center for use during your visit, but you will need to have an assistant to push the chair. Please inquire at the visitor center front desk to arrange for assistance. The first floor of the home is fully accessible for wheelchairs, however, touring the upper floors requires the ability to climb stairs. For visitors unable to navigate the second and third floors on the home, photographic tours of the house are available.

The historic terrace gardens are only partially accessible for wheelchairs as they contain stone steps.

The orientation film is closed-captioned for the enjoyment of hearing impaired visitors. An abbreviated house tour script is also available for Spanish and Korean speaking visitors.

Please contact us in advance for assistance in planning your visit.
