George Washington's Estate Mount Vernon - Review

The Mount Vernon estate which belonged to the American President George Washington has now become a popular tourist attraction. There are a lot of activities to do as well as places to see here in the sprawling area.

George has been buried here and you can see his house. It is also possible to see the house he lived in which was called “The Mansion”. There are also several smaller old school buildings all over the area. Even though the area was huge Washington had kept to the rustic lifestyle of having farm animals and stables which still exist. More importantly, the place has embraced the modern way of open thought and a memorial for the slaves who worked and died at the place has also been built.

There are also a bunch of options to eat authentic American food as well as other cuisines at this place. You also have the option of taking a candlelit tour through the estate. Since it sits by the Potomac river, the lovely water source can be seen through a ride in a small cruise ship. There is a lot to do so do plan a whole day around it.

  • Wow! The view from the back porch is amazing. I also loved how you can explore the entire are by yourself. There are lots of signs to give you information about what you are seeing. We paid for the National Treasure your and it didn’t disappoint. This was definitely a highlight of the trip. We went on a Wednesday and got there when they opened so had some quiet time looking around before it began to get busy. I’m so glad the Ladies Association group was able to preserve this important part of our history.

  • Really enjoyed my experience here. The staff really do their best to make everything as comfortable for you as possible from paying rent to requesting maintenance. The office ladies are super sweet. My neighbors were great too. I really lucked out in getting the place I got. Also love that there is more grass and trees than at many other apartments. If you’re looking for an apartment in the area, I highly recommend Mount Vernon.

  • My family visited Mount Vernon on a Saturday morning in July. We really enjoyed talking with the character interpreters. We learned a great deal. My mother uses a wheelchair. Some of the paths were a bit steep with the chair, but it was well worth it to allow us to explore the grounds on our own. Much more than just the historical home of our nation’s first president—as if that weren’t enough—it was a great opportunity to help the children understand more about a long-ago time. We had tickets to have tea with the two Martha’s and got to talk with both character interpreters interpreting Martha Washington at two different points in her life. Although the tea event does not repeat regularly, no visitor to Mt Vernon should miss the chance to learn from the brilliant women interpreting Ms Washington’s character.

  • Loved visiting here. I would highly recommend getting there early and getting an early time for the house tour, then explore the rest of Mt. Vernon at your leisure. I also wish I had bought the guide book when we arrived. It gives great details about what you are actually seeing. It's worth the $10 and is a nice keepsake of our visit.

  • George Washington’s - Mount Vernon, is a must see while traveling in the DC area. The grounds are immaculate and have been restored beautifully to match what they have found to be historically correct. I found the property clean and well maintained and would wear walking shoes and plan to spend 2-3 hours at this location. If you are wheelchair bound you will need assistance going up and down the hills as there is a lot of gravel that makes navigating it difficult on your own. If you are traveling with young children you might want to skip the feature film they share in the welcome center it’s well done but they share some gruesome death scenes and it is about 25 minutes long. The film is great if you know little to nothing about the history of George Washington I would spend the time to watch it. You need to plan to go early in the day if you want to have a shot at touring the main house - it’s a long wait and you need time tickets to enter. There is an upper and lower garden with houses that line each side from slave quarters to horses stables. The tomb site is worth seeing it’s a bit of a walk but be sure to stop and pay respects. There is a store, place to eat and restrooms on the facility.
