Winterthur is tucked away on an unassuming Delaware road that leads to wonder and adventure. It features a magnificent 175 room home which once belonged to Henry Francis du Pont of the DuPont Company. Upon our visit, we ventured on the 'Once Upon a Family' tour, given by the best guide on earth. She took us back in time to become visitors of the home, while the kids were treated as guests, learning about the traditions and expectations of the time period.
The American treasure is amazing in and of itself, but what truly captivated our visit, lied beyond the walls.
1,000 acres of land waited to be discovered with breathtaking gardens and woodlands so beautiful, it was at times difficult to believe. Finding a Faerie Cottage nestled in an Enchanted Garden, we were led to a troll bridge which tested our bravery to cross.
Watching the children run through the fairytale fragranced in perfumed lilacs, brought amazement and joy to their hearts and in turn, was impossible not to take into our own as well.
