Concierge.com's insider take:

This historic house-turned-museum is filled with an extensive and rare collection of antiques—most of which were amassed by John Dickinson, the wealthy shipowner and Bermudan politician who built the mansion in 1710. Among the treasures occupying the house today are pieces of vintage cedar furniture made on the island, 17th-century oil paintings, and English porcelain. Many of the locally crafted antiques, such as the drawing room desk and cabinet and three bedroom tallboys, showcase a rare transitional style that combines elements of 17th-century medieval-type aesthetics with 18th-century Georgian. It's amazing that the house has been so beautifully preserved, given that until 1951 it was occupied by a rather eccentric spinster who refused to modernize the property with plumbing or electricity.

Closed Sundays and Mondays; closed Tuesdays Nov. to March.
