Staying nearby on our short trip we couldn"t resist a visit to Sully Plantation. We loved that every building and the grounds were meticulously maintained. Field trips by local schools is important to keep history alive. Walking from building to building and around the site was effortless and relaxing.

A nice diversion from the big museums. It is free to visit the grounds, but you have to pay for a tour of the house. It is a small area where the buildings are located. Sometimes there are demos in places like the kitchen or the laundry, but most of the time, you just look from the outside. Not for... More

I walked the grounds and took the house tour, and the whole experience took about 90 minutes. I found the tour guide informative and very pleasant, and I enjoyed seeing a different part of Virginia history. Certainly not a must-see attraction, but a nice way to spend some time and learn some more about Virginia and US history.

I visited on a Sunday afternoon to see a Civil War weekend. I had visited with my family 20 years ago and this was my first time back. The area around the plantation is undergoing significant development and construction. But the roads are good and the signage clear. The grounds haven't changed much. The house is nice but small. The... More

The county has made this into more of a Federalist life learning center than an historic site about a significant Virginia family. I was disappointed, even though everyone I spoke with was kind and glad to have a visitor.

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.
