This June 2-3, The Landmark Trust USA invites you to tour Naulakha, the Dummerston, VT house and grounds of author Rudyard Kipling, normally open only to overnight guests. Take a self-guided tour when its spectacular rhododendrons are likely to be in bloom. Start your visit with a tour of Naulakha, where Rudyard Kipling wrote The Jungle Books and Captains Courageous (you can even sit at the desk!), then stay to enjoy the estate’s grounds at your leisure. Visit Kipling’s Carriage House and the Stables Museum, which serves as a mini-museum of his family’s life in Vermont. Wander the grounds to see the flowers in bloom and the clay tennis courts located below Naulakha, among the first tennis courts built in Vermont. Bring a picnic and enjoy the incredible views from the sloping front lawn.

New for 2024: We’re pleased to offer a new Cocktail Party option this year for an even more exclusive and intimate experience of this special property on Sunday evening, June 2, at 6:00 p.m. These special tickets will include all the same access as daytime tickets with the addition of delicious hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, Scott Farm hard cider, wine, and beer.

Times often sell out early, so get your tickets today!  Proceeds from all tours support the historic preservation work of The Landmark Trust USA.
