    Tinklapyje rašoma, kad dvaro teritorija atvirai lankoma, tačiau atvykus pasivaikščioti pasitinka nemaloniai nusiteikusi rusakalbė moteris, kuri pakeltu tonu pasako: "nėra čia ką žiūrėti". Nors teritorija graži ir smagu pasivaikščioti aplinkui, tačiau nemalonus personalas gali sugadinti savaitgalio nuotaikas.
