We became members of Mt. Vernon, the home of George Washington. I am so happy that we support this home of a important President.
It was a fabulous Christmas tour. The Mount Vernon Women are to be congratulated on their care of this historic home. Thank the Lord, they refuse to bow down to the “cancel culture”.
I was curious because during his time , GW did not decorate for Christmas his home. Our tour guide said that it wasn’t done at the time.
I was expecting the home to look like homes in Williamsburg,Virginia.
It still was so worth the visit. Tour guides are excellent. Every time we visit, we do learn something new.
George Washington Would Be Pleased

Our Tour Guide, Mr. Marshall, was waiting for us when we arrived. He humorously explained what we would be doing on the tour. Everything was so smooth. We were not rushed and felt that we truly received a private tour by a knowledgeable, friendly guide. Being driven in a golf cart was an added bonus for those of us who are not as steady on our feet.
Highly Recommend - National Tr

Did the National Treasure tour - highly recommend!!! Tour Guide James was excellent and friendly, shared a lot of the how the movie was filmed there. Very cool. Also did the Mansion tour which was cool and quick. The staff is very knowledgeable about the Mansion and the history of it.
Fantastic trip

Just go ahead and pay for the private tour. The docents are great. You’ll learn SO much. You see the parts of the mansion that aren’t seen with ordinary admission. Just do it!
George Washington's home

Well worth the price of admission to see the Father of our country's home. You get to see the inside of the mansion and room, by room detailed information of who would come and go on a daily basis.
