How long should I plan to be there?
The tour is one hour. In order to respect guests’ schedules, we will start the tour at the designated time and ask that phones/cameras be silenced and away for the duration of the tour. Staff will be available to answer questions immediately after the tour or in a follow-up phone call. The property is open dawn-to-dusk 365 days a year, so you are welcome to take photos of the property at the conclusion of the tour or anytime you visit.
