Great place to visit in the summer

The ideal time to visit is in the summer to appreciate the grounds, outbuildings and property itself. It's a great symbol of Virginia's agricultural heritage. From other reviews I... read more

We were heading to the Air and Space musuem in Chantilly and saw the signs for the plantation. We quickly decided it was a place we had to see. The buildings were beautifully restored. The grounds were a bit 'scrubby', definitely needing mowed. The grounds are free to explore on your own, however there is little or no signage at... More

My husband works in the DC area and said he has driven by this beautiful home many times. We decided to check it out and were happy we did. You can actually see it from a close highway. Thankfully it was spared from destruction when Dulles airport was built, although the planes fly so close it looks like they might... More

The ideal time to visit is in the summer to appreciate the grounds, outbuildings and property itself. It's a great symbol of Virginia's agricultural heritage. From other reviews I see the tour was considered too long by some. Virginia takes its history seriously the home and tour is informative but be prepared to hear a lot of details, not recommended...

This place closes whenever they want. We were there an hour and 20 minutes before closing time, we went up to the house where a sign says we have to return to the visitor center to purchase tickets. As we were descussing the make of the glass windows, they closed the blinds as though we're peeping Toms at a private... More

I am from the west and we don't have places like that out there. Nice and quiet even though it's be the freeway.

Gazing out from the front lawn of Sully Plantation onto the traffic on Route 28 or up at the planes from Dulles Airport highlights the significant changes that have taken place over the past two centuries. The Fairfax County Park Authority has done a great job in restoring the mansion and the outer buildings so their is a fuller sense... More

We visited during the off season and did not access the tours, but the grounds are a pretty place to just enjoy a relaxing stroll, they have some very comfy rocking chairs on the house deck and we spent a good half hour just rocking and taking in the lovely fall day!

I've driven by this brown historic site sign for years and finally stopped in on a glorious Fall afternoon. Owned by the Fairfax County Park Authority, this site does have school groups but I happened to be the only guest today. The house is original and in excellent condition, with a significant number of original furnishings and completed with period... More

Love this place. It is like my second home. I have a lot of distant relatives and whenever they are visiting I always take them to Sully. The grounds are beautiful and the tour guides are wonderful, If you visit make it a day trip. Have a tour at noon, have a picnic at 1, do the forgotten road tour... More

There's so much good going on here. Visiting here when "nothing" is going on is good, but the added excitement to visit during a civil war reenactment or any of their other activities is really great. Don't miss this place.
