As mentioned the little signs to get tickets is not obvious enough. Watch the movie to get the history. The senior ladies are much better to listen to than reading the stories on the wall. The diary entries from one of the daughters made it also more interesting. Too bad can only see the two lower floors.
Interesting visit. It's a little confusing on where to buy tickets and where to go once you are there. There aren't many signs and the staff is all rather reserved and don't venture much help at the ticket area. However, staff inside the mansion are well versed on the history of the building. Fascinating tour and great artifacts.
We enjoyed the story of Captain Flavel and his mansion and family and then we'll preserved house is an architectural delight. Don't show up to close to closing time or they won't let you in.
Beyond touring the house, the carriage house serves as a museum and gift shop. Wonderful historical information about the house, family and Astoria.
We toured this home in march. We love to tour gorgeous homes. This was the first place and only place that I felt uneasy in this home. I cannot explain it. Made me think dark things went on there.
The house is beautifully restored and seeing all the woodwork is worth the price of admission. Tour is self-guided but there's someone there to answer any questions you may have. The huge redwood tree is also worth seeing. Gorgeous home. I'm glad it was saved from being torn down. It would have been a travesty to lose this grand house
Many old historic properties in Astoria and this one like the cream of that crop. It's well restored on a nicely manicured lot. If this building could talk, I imagine it would have some incredible stories to tell. I didn't have time for the grand tour, but definitely stopped to have a look around. Definitely worth 5-10, maybe 15 minutes...... 更多
This was very close to our hotel and provided a delicious breakfast. We had the pleasure of being served by one of the happiest waitresses in her job that I have come across. The food was delicious with multi selections typical of a Cora’s. This location was larger than others we have visited. We had a wait but the turnover... 更多
The self-guided tour starts with a video on the Captain Flavel, his family, and construction of the house. The Flavel house is a great way to see how life was lead during the 19th century.
I enjoyed my tour of the Flavel House. The lady 'on duty' at the door the day I visited was very interesting with her knowledge of the house and history of Astoria. This Queen Anne house with its detailing from the faux painted woodwork, tiles around the fireplace to the sunflower finial that once sat upon its tower are quite... 更多
