Basically all there is to see is an old house and grounds that aren't all that beautiful and when we were there, could not get access to. Some renovations were taking place while we were there so it's possible that's why the home was not open to the public. However, walking around looking in the windows was not very entertaining. I would not take a trip back to this location, even if the home was open for viewing.
When you read about this site, the literature will tell you there are 5 buildings (house, stone building, barn, chicken house and ice house). Don't let 5 buildings fool you, a chicken house is a chicken house is a chicken house! This historic site is run by the national park system so they do provide some background on Ulysses S. Grant in the barn (the visitor center) across the road from the house.
If you're a history buff, you might slightly enjoy this 'off the beaten path' historic site, however for those looking for more fun, this isn't the place for you.
