Guided Tours of Rudyard Kipling's Estate & Rhododendron Display on Scott Farm

481 Kipling Rd
Dummerston, VT

Come for a special one-day tour of Rudyard Kipling’s former Vermont estate, when the spectacular 100-yard multi-colored rhododendron tunnel, leading out to a spacious stone patio, is in full bloom. See and learn about Naulakha, the authentically-restored main house where Nobel Prize winning author wrote The Jungle Books and Captains Courageous, among others. Visit the Kipling Carriage House, also one of Landmark Trust USA’s five historic vacation rentals, and the Barn Museum, once home to Kipling’s team, Nip and Tuck, that now serves as a mini-museum of his family’s life in Vermont.  Enjoy tea on the back deck after the tour.  One-hour tours offered at 10am, Noon and 2 pm. No dogs please. Rain or shine.

If interested in enjoying a picnic on the grounds, at our picnic tables or on the stone patio by the pergola, brown bag lunches are available at the time of registration. Each of the 3 guided tours is limited to 20 people, priced at $25 per person.
