President Lincoln's Cottage At The Soldiers' Home Reviews & Ratings
One historical landmark more DC locals should appreciate and take advantage of is President Lincoln's cottage. I experience nice educational trips for the kids and myself here. There is so much to see of some beautiful DC historical sights that make me proud of being a Washingtonian. They have a really nice gift shop and their staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. A staff member in their gift shop by the name of Lacey was very pleasant and hospitable to me and my family. They have many family oriented events here as well. I look forward to spending more time here throughout the seasons.
Guided tour through the mansion is slightly disappointing: half of the tour shares stories from Lincoln's stay in the cottage, but the other half was mostly to interact and ask opinions. It would have been interesting to learn more about actual period informational (was of living for instance). Tour on Sunday morning didn't sell out: can buy on site. Worth arriving at least 30 minutes before tour to read through the galleries. No cafe/bistro on site (a pod cafe machine available only, no sitting area) Large parking lot, free, and kids playground onsite.
I’ve been here a number of times to set up wedding flowers so I only know this location as a wedding venue, and it’s a great one at that. The location is easily accessible, the staff are helpful, and the grounds are perfectly laid out for a wedding. Definitely a good option to consider for weddings in the DMV!
This was a really interesting tour. There was a focus on the implications of Lincoln's time there as well as the emotions he went through as a president and as a human being, rather than just facts and history about the location. Kevin was a GREAT tour guide. He was interactive without being pushy, so it's a fun tour for those who like to speak up and those who don't! Definitely recommend.
Truly a great experience, an glad I was able to take a tour of such a great piece of American History. The guides were very informative an if you have the opportunity to take the tour please stop for the information...
