One of my favorite Hermitage spots

I love the Hermitage! From the history to the serene grounds, I find this place oddly comforting. Maybe its the history buff in me but I visit as often as I can!

Was not sure how this would be but there was so much to learn about this president and his wife Rachel. If I had school age children I would definitely make this a stop. I think the gardens would be lovely in the spring and summer! Great place to visit.

The property is beautiful, and this place offers a great history lesson for kids and adults. I try to bring visitors here or go to functions here every chance I get. Would highly recommend visiting.

Spent the morning touring The Hermitage. It is a self guided tour, with handheld speakers. Once in the house, there are a series of docents that explain the rooms and answer any questions you might have. It was reasonable ($20 pp) and a nice way to spend a few hours. Would not recommend during rainy days as most of the... More

Use their free headphones, and listen to the history, as you walk the plantation. Not terribly expensive, plus they give a senior discount. Don't leave your car there, after hours, as they lock the gate to the driveway.

We spent several hours here, it was our second trip but there is so much to learn each time you go. Great inside displays in the visitor center before going to tour the mansion. We took the horse and buggy tour which was so informative about the lives of the slaves who lived on the plantation. Our driver/tour guide was... More

I can't compare this presidential home to much. Prior to this I have only had the opportunity to visit Lincoln's tiny home in Springfield, Il. My visit to Hermitage has inspired me to see as many of our president's homes as possible. I love and studied American history so I was excited to finally have the chance to visit the... More

Had forgotten how "revolutionary" a figure Andrew Jackson was! There are paths to the out-buildings, burial site, etc. that make for a pleasant walk even in February. The house is very well preserved and the guides inside are well-informed. There is a good audio tour that you definitely should listen to while walking the grounds. Also, allow enough time for...

We were disappointed by the Hermitage. Perhaps our perspective was dampened because we had visited the OUTSTANDING Biltmore Mansion and Gardens the day before but in any case we expected a better tour. The main part of the tour is walking the grounds which are nice and includes a handheld device that looks like an old cell phone that provides... More

I came away with a new understanding of how Andrew Jackson affected our US history. It was not his war record that is eye opening but his presidency. The museum on the grounds before you tour the home and grounds is like a small presidential library. Very good. The home is unique as it is furnished with the Jackson family... More
